Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

I am pumped to see this.

And I was kind of a naysayer to begin with, but I will gladly be proven wrong.

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

What's got me psyched for it is that is has the Raimi & Campbell seal of approval.  They both were very hands-on producers.  If they hadn't been involved, I would probably be passing it up.  But I'm down with it and am looking forward to checking it out.

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

Evil Dead, and Reanimator are my 2 favorite horror movies of the 80's.   I hate to see it remade like every other movie from the 80's, but it was only a matter of time I guess. 

The cool thing about the original for me was the low budget feel and over the top gore of course.   This new one seems real glossy, like every other horror film as of late.   

I'll probably see it, but in my heart there'll always be a place for the original.

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

Ragnbone, I just love that they decided to use 80's style of film tech. True it won't look as noisy and gritty as the first but still think that's what differentiates it from the other new stuff. My take.

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

Well only 3 days left. And they're gonna be the longest ones for me EVER. lol

But while we wait, found this pretty cool claymation Evil Dead trailer remake.

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

I'm so sad. Won't be showing this friday in my crap town.
That's what it's like to live in a hole. Damn cinema idiots.
I should bomb it.

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

Someone I follow on Instagram watched it already.

I actually loved #evildead it's deff what a remake should be. Takes elements from the original but makes it it's own. All the gross & blood was beautiful. What was sad that 80% of the audience never saw the original but make sure to stay through the credits

So it looks promising.

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

Yes, all I've read on it was great. So I'm 666% sure it'll be.

And Instagram, what is that thing??? Oh yeah, that phone photo thing that I can't join because I use a computer... lol

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

hahah

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

I have low expectations for this, honestly, but I'm trying very hard not to be a purist about it, 'cause most remakes suck, let's be honest.  The Evil Dead is by far and away one of my favourite movies so I want to like it. At least I have a better chance of being surprised, though.

They DON'T show it here. Yes.

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

Aw that's too bad, as if. I'll bet they are showing Jurassic Park 3D though, stupid how that works. The 20 year old film gets priority.

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

EXACTLY!!! lol
And The damn Goons. Really stupid...

Re: The Evil Dead (2013)

That's crazy.  I read it was #1 at the box office so far for the weekend.


I really enjoyed it.  It was definitely one of the better remakes recently.  It paid homage to the originals without outright copying them.  It was gory as hell and didn't hold back on that.  And yes it was 99% practical effects just like they promised, so it was more realistic.  The characters were not well developed but that didn't bother me at all.  The dialogue was a little stiff though.  There was a new element added to the story that was clever and a lot more back story was added.  The gore was over the top but not exploitative unlike some recent torture porn movies.  It had no humour to lighten it up either.  It was a straight up old fashioned Horror movie.  There were, however, plenty of Easter Eggs from the original movies, so if you are a fan it will be fun to look for them.  Some are very obvious and some are more subtle.
