Well...First, I didn't realize how much of the original movie I forgot. It took me a while to get the gist of the story because I could only remember the main scenes from the original which focused on one guy. I didn't remember how the story started or who else was even in it beyond the fellow and the demons! Lol...So...getting up to speed on the story held my interest---for a while. Let me tell you, Evil Dead 2013 doesn't even come close to the original. It didn't have that creepy something's-about-to-get-you-but-you-don't-know-when-or-where-or-how sensibility that had you on the edge of your seat with the original.
Evil Dead 2013 did win first place at the box office that week. *shaking my head* Go figure. I guess the kids love that yucky kind of stuff...but I did see a few people walk out...
Go and see it at your own peril...lol...Better yet, check out the original. It's scary movie making at its best.
