As a horror movie buff, I'm not too big a fan of the remake machine. The majority of them are just flat out awful, with little to no exceptions. However, as a huge long time fan of the EVIL DEAD franchise, I couldn't help but be excited for the release of this film.
Produced by both Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, this film gladly delivers all of the glorious gore the original film had and then some. There are moments aplenty where you just can't help but cringe and almost turn away from the screen. Add to that a familiar, but refreshingly changed story combined with a cast of talented unknowns and you have what I considered to be a successful horror remake.
