An effectively relentless gore-fest.

A must-see for horror fans, Evil Dead is great fun from start to finish and establishes the basis for a rejuvenated franchise that could fuse with past demon defiance rather than overwrite them.

Comparisons to the original are inevitable yet the filmmakers deserve the right for this to be judged of its own accord and it's not a terrible movie.

No matter how you slice it, it's a kind of horror wind-up toy: Once you set it in motion, it's going to do the same thing it always does. This one's no different.

For a movie that's nothing if not a bloodbath, "Evil Dead" is as dry as the Sahara.

A big, spewing slab of gory, red meat entertainment, carved out with all the delicacy of a sputtering chainsaw, for fans a horror movie classic that just refuses to die.

While first-timer Fede Alvarez provides a few effective shocks, on the whole it's more gruesome and graphic than scary or suspenseful.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Rather overt about its intentions to replace the campfire story creepiness of [the original] with over-the-top gore effects and a truly unfortunate reliance on jump scares.

Five years from now, will you want to watch this bloody $14 million extravaganza or Raimi's shoestring original, which was Amateur Hour elevated to pop art? Evil Dead just bleeds money.

When will people learn to stay out of the woods? This is the rare remake that surpasses the original in almost all ways except one - no Bruce Campbell.

If you watched the first film's vine attack and went, 'You know what this needs? This needs to be more like hentai.' If you thought that, then this film is for you.

Enjoy but be warned: you might need a tetanus shot and stitches just watching it.

By the time the last excruciatingly spilled blood drips, Evil Dead stakes its claim as a worthy remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 horror classic.

...a disappointingly run-of-the-mill horror effort that remains a far cry from Raimi's superior predecessor...

Killer Movie Reviews

While staying true to the spirit of low-budget horror, Alvarez also brings a visual elegance to even the most gruesome of sights, from a puss-engorged hand being possessed by a demon, to the minutiae of being buried alive

Even as a huge fan of The Evil Dead, it's impossible to wholeheartedly embrace this one when just last year we were treated to a cabin-in-the-woods yarn -- The Cabin in the Woods, of course -- that carried on Raimi's legacy far better than this film does.

An unnecessary remake of the 1981 Evil Dead by Sam Raimi.

A stylish and worthy homage: inventive even as it is derivative, never quite jokey but never taking itself too seriously, and clocking in at an entirely appropriate 91 minutes. Any longer would be unmerciful; any shorter, ungenerous.
