Technically second remake of a 1981 revolutionary cult classic, this movie has one of the strongest horror fan bases in history and a new generation of teenagers to seduce. The purists might bump on a few details, but none of the franchise’s gimmicks have been overlooked and the movie looks like a million bucks. The gore effects are incredibly realistic and are torture even to the audience.
Bruce Campbell’s Ash isn’t part of the story, but his design and wit are found across the production. The performances range from forgettable to awesome, and it seems to be what the producers were after. This was also true of all previous films. Some actors hold back because the script wants them to until they get their special moment, at which point they unleash their true talent.
From photography to the narrative, every aspect of Evil Dead is calculated. It knows how to scare, disgust and make you jump, and does so with perfect timing. Humor is limited, much like the original Evil Dead. The biggest shift in tone between this and the first two is in the polish and the technology at hand. Nothing is left to chance. Expect twists and Easter eggs from beginning to end.
