The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Evil Dead (2013)

Starring: Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, Elizabeth Blackmore
Director: Fede Alvarez

A group of friends go to an isolated cabin to help one of them kick their drug habit. They find a strange and ancient book which unleases a demonic power.

My Take:
This remake tries to be it's own film and some what succeeds. It has dark themes and a serious tone right from the beginning. And it works.... right up until the final act where it all falls apart and seems like a cheap way to get a typical end result. It's too bad because the first seventy minutes are tight with suspense and filled with a huge amount of blood, gore, and splatter. Not to mention the utter beating a couple of the characters take as all hell breaks loose.

Rating: In the middle
