Well I just watched the video below, and I see that two of the three reviewers gave it a thumbs down. Well I don't know what they were expecting but I thought it was great. I do agree with one of them though when he commented on the caption that said, "The most terrifying film you will ever experience". Well that definitely was not true, That distinction still belongs to "The Exorcist" But having said that, I loved the movie. I thought it was way better than the original. And for me to say that is pretty unusual because I am a firm believer that a remake can never be better than the original. But I was never a big fan of the original Evil Dead to begin with. And the reason for that is I am a die hard horror movie fan. And one thing I can't stand is genre mixing. Whenever I see the genre of a movie as horror/comedy, I won't even bother with it. If you're going to make a horror movie, then make a horror movie, hence The Exorcist. There was NOTHING comical about that film. And that's what I really liked about the Evil Dead remake. In fact, there were only 2 things about it that I didn't like. (1) I definitely did not like what happened to the Dog. I can't stand any kind of violence against Children or Animals (especially dogs) PERIOD. (2) It was too quick, I wanted more, much much more. I hope if they make another one, instead of having just 5 people come to the cabin, bring 10 and leave the dog at home. I enjoyed every blood oozing minute of it. And I also thought the reason for them being there in the first place was also very creative. And why they would not let her leave when the shit began to hit the fan. Excellent! However I did like the characters (except for one) and I felt bad for them and what they had to endure. But one of them was just too damn dumb for me to feel anything for. I mean if you come across a book that's barbed wired shut, why the hell would you open it? And even after all of the warnings, he continued to read from it. I felt he deserved what he got. But I felt bad for the others. They were not a bunch of knuckleheads that you don't care about, like in your normal horror flicks. So, Yes I enjoyed it and I give it solid thumbs up, and I am so looking forward to another one. But remember LEAVE THE DOG HOME.
