  • This remake of the 1981 horror classic starts well, but it soon degenerates into tiresome shock gore that overstays its welcome, despite the film's modest run time. Jane Levy as a heroin addict going through withdrawal is the one bright spot. show more

  • Alvarez triumphs because he made one crucial decision: Avoid digital animation and use only practical in-camera special effects. He uses every trick from classic Hollywood and invents a few of his own. show more

  • Though Alvarez keeps us watching, he takes no real chances. Buried under all those enthusiastically mangled bodies is the comfort of familiarity. He may have intended to remake a single film, but we’ve seen this movie countless times before. show more

    Just had to turn off the remake of Evil Dead it was horrible beyond words an utter offense to my eyes and ears. I had such fond memories as a youngster watching the original with my family and being shocked and amazed at all the bloody gore. THIS REMAKE SUCKS!

    Movie sucked big time !! Like it says on the box \"simply astonishing !\" ...sadly enough I was astonished how you could completely and utterly ruin a remake of the original cult movie made by Raimi while having access to better special effects and a much larger budget
