Audience Reviews for Evil Dead Trap

I've had quite the time with this one. When I first saw this I hated it ("This is nothing like Evil Dead!") but I keep returning to it like an abused spouse. Now, I quite like it. A lot actually.

Great visuals and gore make it easy to see why genre fans call this the "Japanese Argento film". Now if only I could get into Argento....
