A near-perfect remake of the Raimi original. Respectful of the original story and goal - be scary - but freshly imagined.

This movie was terrible in my opinion it didn't follow the story at all, I'm a big fan of the original and if you are to stay away from this film.

can't say it's the best but it has more than enough cringe worthy scenes. a few that are predictable, overall it was worth seeing. I will buy it when it comes out on dvd too.

Featuring truly shocking levels of violence but none of the wit or fun of the original, the new Evil Dead is mostly a dud. Full Review
An ode to the strength of onscreen horror even in its less inspired state, the new Evil Dead primarily succeeds at illustrating how the originals have managed to stand the test of time. Full Review
Boasts way better production values than the penny-pinching 1981 original and conceivably could delight genre fans who have never seen the first version or its previous remakes/sequels. But it’s bound to play best with those who catch Alvarez’s many wink-wink allusions to Raimi’s picture. Full Review
The Hollywood Reporter
A gore-for-broke affair that strips the flesh off Sam Raimi's cult-beloved comic-horror franchise and exposes the demons at its core. Full Review
The downright gnarliest mainstream horror release in recent memory, Evil Dead is certainly a considerable and occasionally commendable dose of the ol’ ultra-violence, but Fede Alvarez’ Raimi-sanctioned update of 1981’s cult favorite only really has that demented determination going for it. Full Review
Hahaha the older version of Evil Dead is hilarious ****
