At times I hated it for pushing my buttons so relentlessly and with such obvious touches, but I can't deny it: I found it entertaining as hell.

Shamelessly resurrecting ancient horror standbys -- not just curses; seers and séances, too -- Raimi clearly enjoys being allowed to return to the unruly instincts of his Evil Dead trilog
