The rotten reviews are totally pathetic!

**Hear me out and tell me if you feel the same

It seems as if those who gave it rotten are looking at it the wrong way! Especially Mr. Richard Roeper saying he's sick and tired of movies that kill off the main characters (He gave it a 1/4 FFS) ... well DUH!! It would be worse if they all lived. The fans asked for R-rated ultra-violence with a sturdy plot and new ideas and thats what they got! The film is never boring and the cinematography is SUPERB especially the fact that there are little to NO SPECIAL EFFECTS, this is gonna be one of the best films of 2013 HANDS DOWN BEST HORROR MOVIE SINCE THE ORIGINAL EVIL DEAD. How dare you give it a rotten!!! It's a LEGIT GOOD MOVIE.

It's sad that it's only a few bad reviews away from loosing 'certified fresh'. Compared to the horror movies from the last few years, this movie needs a break. I still haven't read a bad review with a good reason for being bad.

I think people have a hard time shaking the "It's a remake so it sucks" mentality, and so while watching , they magnify what they consider weak elements and end up only being able to see those. I also think people haven't seen the original in a while and have bloated it in their mind into being the perfect horror movie. Most people I know who watched the original before this definitely felt it was either on the same level or in some way an improvement.

That's how I'm feeling about it. The Evil Dead may have a higher tomatometer, but if the internet existed when that film came to theaters, it wouldn't be as positively reviewed. The remake has more exposure to a variety of critics, and they're not all looking for the same thing.

Then there are the few who haven't seen the original and complain about it being too gory. Those are the people who are truly out of their element.

Yeah, I feel that as time goes on, more people will look at this one in a more favorable light. But you are right. The original was shown at Cannes and then went into obscurity until the VHS came out. If it had been released to a wider audience, I don't think it would have been as well received.

You people realize that this is so far the best horror remake of ALL Time right ???? Not even in my wildest dreams i could think that an EVIL-DEAD Remake could turn out so good and I've only seen the theatrical version of the film. imagine how more great it will be when the uncut version on DVD Comes out !!

Oh, no doubt. David Cronenberg's adaptation was a damn near perfect remake. He's one of my all time favorite directors. I would honestly need to watch them both again in consecutively and then draw a final conclusion.

In my book, 'The Thing' isn't exactly a remake since it's more closer to the original short story than 'Thing from Another World' was.
Saying it's a remake would be like saying LOTR is a remake of the old animated adaption.

I appreciate that you enjoyed the movie, but do us all a favor and stop posting. You're making horror fans look like a bunch of whiny Twihards with your incessant complaining. This movie is nowhere NEAR the best horror film since the original Evil Dead. The only way that would be true is if you only saw horror films in your entire life; the original Evil Dead and the remake. Please shut up.

Well, Mel i have to disagree it isn't the best horror movie since the original Evil Dead. There have been several other horror movies that are far superior.Dead Alive for example.

I thought it was good. I give it a 70% fresh. The major problem with the movie to me is that i didn't care if the whole cast died. There wasn't one person in the movie i wanted to see make it to the end. The only one i even half way liked was Eric. Best part of the movie was after the credits. It was groovy!

Most the bad reviews seem to complain about one thing, or they complain about the wrong things. Evil Dead isn't for everyone, not everyone is gonna like it, but it wasn't made for those people. I'm glad it didn't turn out horrible, and I loved every moment of it. Some people wanted something different, they can find another movie.

A girl gets raped by a tree. Okay? I'd be more worried about getting killed by a drugged-up friend thinking they're a demon than a tree.

Over on The Hobbit forum, before it came out, I made a thread like this. The only difference is mine was satirical because the forum was full of people like Mei here.

I can understand liking a movie or getting excited for one, but don't say things like "HOW DARE THOSE DASTARDLY CRITICS GIVE MY FAVORITE MOVIE EVER A ROTTEN REVIEW".

Seriosly!? is that all you took out of my thread??? "CRITICS ARE EVIL" Sorry sir, that's NOT what I was going for. I just mean to say that some of the rotten reviews seem to be based on BIAS and overall effectiveness of the film. Hopefully if you view the film (and i hope you do cause it's pretty gnarly) you be fair with it and see it for what it is without bias. Anyway if you miss the old Evil Dead film, it's always gonna be there, just dust it off your shelf and watch it on Bluray even. :)

Well, it stuck out to me like a sore thumb. It's something that really bugs me when I see it.

But as for seeing the movie, I probably won't see it in theaters. But because I love the original, I feel inclined to see it. I'll rent the unrated version on Blu-ray when it's released.

I have some friends who saw it. I agree with them 90% of the time when it comes to movies, so I'm taking their negative review of it as a warning not to spend the over-priced admission to see it in a theater.

And they are doing a Child's Play remake.

Mei people went to see it because they where and are fans of the original. And because Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi attached there names to this film. Further down you also say this garbage remake gives them a purpose to be in the cabin. Have you even seen the original? They had a purpose in that one as well. Friends/couples getting away for a vacation.
And you seem to miss that Alvarez has butchered this remake by changing the hero from male to female, and adding in parts from the second film. Then you add in just purely bad acting. Not even campy bad like the original just pure bad acting period.
With todays CGI and other special effects there was a solid chance to remake this film into something heart pounding. The kind of movie that once you get home you feel the need to turn on every light in the house. This is once again another gore/slasher-porn of a movie. Making it an epic fail of a movie. And frankly if the plan of remaking the rest of the series Alvarez shouldn't be allowed any where near them.

Did you guys read the latest one, from Willie Waffle? Seriously, what the hell was that? "
I think they really lost me when evil enters our heroine through her vajayjay (you can't unsee that)." What kind of serious reviewer, wanting to be taken seriously, would write something like that?

Don't get me wrong; I won't bash anyone who just simply doesn't like the film, and I respect people's opinions when they're elaborated in some way that you can actually discuss, and not only attacking it for the sake of attacking it.

He actually says that the squeamish should turn away of it because it's straightforward gory horror, and that it's nasty and scares. Hell, if he was scared by it, doesn't it mean that the movie achieved it's goal?

It's those kinds of reviwers thar really annoy the living shit out of me.

AGREED!! If your over 30, then you'll appricate films like the first Evil Dead, and REAL horror films from late 70' early 80's. No special effects, just great suspense. Todays films are for the A.D.D kids that luv the gore, quick editing and loads of special effects. This flick had every horror cliche in the book. Very predictable! Anyone noticed the lead guy's face was clean throughout the entire film till the end? The only plus was the hot indian actress...who died first. UGH, always the dark people! lol. jk....not really

What are you talking about, Jermaine? 80's was the heyday of special effects driven horror: Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, Hellraiser, Carpenter's The Thing,Cronenberg's The Fly, Suspiria(70's but who cares). These movies all had heavy gore effects AND were tension and suspense filled. All classics.

Jermaine, the original Evil Dead also used quite a few horror cliche's. furthermore, I was sitting next to a man who was probably in his late 40 early 50's, and he was enjoying the whole film immensely.

I don't know. I view the "Mia is here to de-tox" as more of a quick "Here's characterization!" and in the first ten minutes, we learn 'She's a druggie! Oh, but her mom died and her brother wasn't around for that, so that's why she's a druggie! That is sad! Be sympathetic, guys!' I found it to be cheap and ineffectively manipulative towards the audience. Not to mention it had about as much subtlety to it as a brick to the side of the head.
