Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?.  :gun:

Nice quote, and I just come to the realization of a second point, this remake is playing it completely straight-faced well I guess like the original Evil Dead. This doesnt have any resemblance to Evil Dead 2 at all.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

It's an underground cult classic that has potential to be seen in a new perspective with the hand of a new director. Long-time fans will be beside themselves. Anyone else won't get it. But these type of movie series are for the diehards.

The idea of a remake is to make minor changes to improve, by the way.

But if there's already one there... why make another?

Perhaps some new band should re-record Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" in it's entirety. Oh no that would be plagarism wouldn't it?

Well.... I suppose superhero movies are starting to dry up, so they might as well swoop upon cult classics now.

I just watched the Judge Dredd remake it was worse then the original so now I find myself actually liking the original WTF hey :w00t:  but I am sceptical about some of these remakes.

That looked pretty creepy... but will it deliver any suspense not just the gratuitous gross-outs?

And still again, no Bruce Campbell either?  

I remain sceptical. I love my horror most of the time with a nice serving of suspense and the psychological.

So many recent horror films have fallen flat on their faces because they lacked these qualities especially the recent deluge of remakes. I could do without the gore personally in a horror film because that is just cheap shock value afterall, cutting corners and appeasing the gorehounds (fans that dig ultraviolence and gore).

You want some of the best horror films ever made try Jacques Tourneur's Cat People, Siegal's Invasion Of The Body Snatchers original, Clayton's The Innocents, Harvey's Carnival Of Souls, etc.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal.

Well,he's 30 years older.
He might look ridiculous in this kind of flick,bur he and Sam raimi are producing/directing,and knowing those guys,I smell cameos .
Also ,remember,the entire original cast of ED ,were unknowns.
It gave Sam and bruce ,their ticket into cultdom .
I would think,for them,they hope to do the same for these guys.

Miss me?

No what I meant is Bruce Campbell wont be topped... this film gave him a meteoric genre rise and huge iconic fan following.

The remake indeed has creepy visuals with the body mutilations and decapitated head. Subtlety is out the door here which is expected as the original and its sequel are some of the bloodiest (not the goriest) films ever made but I cant say it looked like anything that would remotely make me jump out of my seat either.

Time will tell.

Never got the Tree Rape scene...There's got to be another way to possess someone...Still, Evil Dead was great. Loved that movie, and AoD is one of my favorites.

the original dredd gave us this, theres nothing in the remake that could equal the awesomeness in this 9 second clip.
