Review: Evil Dead

Release Date:  April 5, 2013
Running Time: 91 minutes
Starring: Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas
Who to see it with: A horror movie buff.


I hadn't seen the original Evil Dead (I know, I know, I'm terrible) so I didn't know what to expect.  But man this was a good movie!  The remake of the original horror classic follows five young adults who discover a terrible secret in a secluded cabin (horror movies always seem to be set in the woods don't they).  Obviously everything goes wrong and terror and gore commence.  That terror and gore, however, is very well done.  The actors are not big name stars but have very solid performances.  The setting and atmosphere are creepy and really adds to the overall feel of the film.  The effects are awesome, gory, and sometimes downright twisted.  The book of the dead also looks amazing with some really terrific (or terrorific) illustrations.  The sounds are eerie and keep you on edge.  Some of the acting is a little corny and the characters make some pretty dumb decisions but overall I enjoyed the movie.  If you're a fan of horror films, 

See it.

PS - There IS a stinger at the end of the credits so make sure to stay!
