Manufacturer Description

You leave a staple weapon lying around an isolated cabin, you're throwing down the gauntlet. That's the least of the mortal worries in Evil Dead, the 2013 reboot of Sam Raimi's 1981 kook-classic scary image. This version takes the same basic summary as the initial (youths at a cabin, forbidden book of occult spells, all hell breaking loose) and plays it as an intense, blood-soaked exercise in nonstop action. Ostensibly the friends exist to aid Mia (Jane Levy) kick her drug dependency, but they get a little sidetracked by the dead animals awaiting the basement and the book of necromancies wrapped in barbed wire. The geek (Lou Taylor Pucci) in the group takes the next step-- actually speaking some of the book's mumbo-jumbo aloud-- and the rest is no-holds-barred, absolutely berserk bloodletting. If any of this had actual force, or if any of the characters had more than a single character characteristic to prop them up, perhaps Evil Dead could prosper as a category exercise. Director Fede Alvarez has the technical skills to frighten an audience for 90 minutes, and the movie is grueling in its quest to discover a grisly touch that will top the previous scene. However there's absolutely nothing going on beyond the normal template for this type of movie (didn't Cabin in the Woods finish that off?) and ultimately we're entrusted another scary image that counts on people doing foolish things.-- Robert Horton
