‘Evil Dead’ (2013) Review

  1. Great review Kalyn. You bring up some great points. The reason I loved it so much was simply because it felt like a love letter to the original rather than a remake — it was almost like its own entity that paid homage to Raimi’s classic. It doesn’t take a lot to please me tho, throw around some blood and I usually have a good time 🙂

    1. Thank you!! Haha! I certainly enjoy a little bloodshed myself 🙂 I saw it again the other night, and I liked it much better the second time. It has its problems, but it’s definitely entertaining.

  2. Great review! I know the “hype” feeling all too well. I also feel like I spoil too much by watching too many trailers or having too high expectations. If there’s something I know i’m 100% going to see regardless of reviews, I’ll just go into it blind nowadays. I’ve heard mixed reviews about Evil Dead. Some friends say it completely sucked, others say it was like having to poop really bad and squirming in their seat uncomfortably (but in a good way). I’ll watch it this weekend and have a feeling I’ll like it regardless.

    1. Thanks! I know, I almost feel bad for the filmmakers, because advertising is such a difficult balance. You have to get the word out about your movie, while holding enough material back to allow the audience to be surprised when they finally see it. I heard so much about the movie that I set a bar that couldn’t be reached. It’s a shame.
