Will Salmon
SFX Magazine

Too ludicrous to take seriously, yet too po-faced to laugh at, it sacrifices wit and energy for intensity.

Rarely do you find a modern reboot that has the power to satisfy fans of a revered franchise while simultaneously grabbing audiences unfamiliar with the original and kicking them in the teeth.

A masterful new version that adds even more value to Sam Raimi's masterpiece than ever.

This Evil Dead isn't as flavorful as the old one, and it doesn't try as many different things. But on the promises it does make, it delivers.

An (extremely) blood good time that will likely please horror fans.

Deadspin

It's not great, it's not quite as anarchic as the original or as you want it to be, but as a gorefest aiming to pop you out of your seat a few times, it does the trick.

Fan The Fire

Alvarez does show some directorial flair but this is not as frightening as it would like to believe it is, nor as interesting.

The film is about nothing more than Alvarez devising amusingly fiendish ways of freaking out audiences.

Seven Days

Alvarez doesn't succeed in making Evil Dead terrifying, but he does make it as prodigiously intense and gory for our time as the original was for its own.

May 22, 2013

A spookily effective remake of the ultra-low budget 1981 cult horror classic by Sam Raimi, the gore and blood is so plentiful here it even falls from the sky...A must for fans, Evil Dead also affirms horror as the most remake-friendly genre going.

Alvarez seems to know where to pay tribute to the original... but he also knows where to depart... Overall, his new movie packs a punch.

... not for people prone to nightmares. It's highly effective as causing involuntary chills and hand movements (as in, up to eyes to block the bloody chaos onscreen). ... a cut above just about any other modern horror/slasher remake

Using the very latest Cern-tested atom interferometry, we can reveal that Evil Dead is precisely, exactly - in the coldest atomic terms -the film that you were expecting.

Remaking an iconic classic is dangerous business, even if the original filmmakers are on board as producers, but at least Uruguayan writer-director Alvarez has a few clever ideas up his sleeve.

This could easily have been the best demon possession film released in decades. Instead it is just a very effective, still-terrifying, evil retread.

The characters are forgettable but the horror they suffer lingers in the memory, for good or ill.

April 18, 2013

A decent, gory horror treat for those who've never watched an Evil Dead movie - while at the same time exhibiting discreet respect for the 1980s incarnations, with plenty of low-key nods to the original for fans.

Guardian

A full-bloodedly grisly and macabre film that zaps over a few scares.

I was left clamping my hand to my open jaw, not so much in terror, more in shocked hilarity at how grand the guignol was willing to go.

ViewLondon

Well made and delivers buckets of the red stuff, but it's hampered by poorly developed characters, a lack of humour and a tendency to substitute gore for actual scares.
