Evil Dead (2013) Spoiler-Free Review

Is it good?
Yes, it's awesome.

Is it technically good?
It makes gore and dirt pretty in a good way.
The acting ranges from serviceable to good - no one is terrible, and that's what matters.
The music and sound are good though a siren is overused.
The director, Fede Alvarez, makes good choices.

What does it promise - and does it deliver?
Scares, dismemberment, gore, and a little wackiness - and oh boy does it deliver.

If you liked these, you'll like this: Evil Dead (1981), Evil Dead 2, Drag Me to Hell, other horror reboots.

  1. Great review. I got to say, I really enjoyed this movie. I was nervous going in that it wouldn't honor Sam Raimi's masterpiece, but thankfully it played plenty of homage to the original. While part of me does miss the humor, I don't mind that much since I got plenty of action and gore.

    I finally got around to reviewing this movie on my own novice, review-blog. I could always use an experienced critic's opinion to help me fine-tune my reviews. Check it out if you get the time.
