Yeah, I'm not so keen on this.  Watched the trailer that was released a while back, and when I realized the campiness of it was gone (which is part of why I love the original trilogy), decided I'll be saving my money on this one.

The first one was not campy ,at all...it was very basic horror ,on a low budget ,that set the standard for any movie like it,that came after it.
Part two was psychological ,part three was all camp .

Ok. The raves are how did it get just an R rating. What a bunch of Pussies the censors must be ,to think this warranted an NC-17,for just violence and gore .
I think only explicit sexual situations rate NC-17 .ok . There wasn't even nudity . Spare us extreme right .

As for the movie ,if you are NOT a fan of the original ,you will have your socks knocked off. If you are ,the mood won't be exactly right .
There wasn't enough development of the thing in the basement ,like the original .
There's a lot more plot tho.
A preamble to the story . A very different reason as to why they're out there.
It has its merits ,but....something was missing for me .

It's extremely creepy ,huge amts of gore and just sick stuff. That being said,the possession parts,albeit in the first one,just seemed too much like a possession movie for me ,at some points . They are much crieepier than the average possession movie though .
The end has a bit of a twist ,that I was already aware of .
Do watch it to the very very end of the credits .Very very very end ....
The trailers for other movies were Carrie and iron man .
Iron man looks off the hook ,carrie ,watch the original .

It stands on its own as a horror movie.....nothing like the ones before.
Enjoyed it very much.. The gore is pretty harsh but I actually expected more.
Didn't understand the NC-17 rating......people still had their kids in the theater.
Stay til the very end of the credits.

Remakes. Been so many. Most missed the mark but some hit home. And its not only the cult classics like Evil Dead, but the classic classics like King Kong and The Wizard Of Oz as well. I guess in Money Wood, nothing is sacred. I wonder how long it will be before Citizen Kane or Gone With The Wind are presented slammed full of CGI. Actually I'm surprized they haven't done The Rocky Horror Picture Show yet or eek! The Exorcist.

As far as Bruce Campbell, I think he's great at what he does. He nailed Army of Darkness. Any one catch Bubba Ho-tep? And I was glad to hear the new evil dead had such a great opening weekend. America does love its gore. Personaly, I'll wait for the DVD and watch it with a beer and a dubby.

I happen to be a fan of Bubba Ho-tep. I thought Bruce did a great job of acting.

LOOOOVED bubba ho tep!

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die liberty will never perish... Soldiers don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think or what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder... Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts.  You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts.

I recently watched the oriGinal Evil Dead.    It was more funny than scary and so very gory.  I don't think I will see the remake, just the trailer in the theater was enough to gross me out.

Evil Dead, the original, was awesome..... part from the play doh special effects that is.

Or, come to think of it, maybe it had sort of a 80ies charm.

I'm watching Evil Dead II right now - I'm about to watch Army of Darkness once it's done.

I'm a huge Evil Dead fan because my 34 year old brother is a horror movie enthusiast.

Like someone mentioned, the first Evil Dead was primarily a horror movie..

Back in 1980, however, it was super controversial because of some scenes.

Spoiler

The low-budget makes it seem campy in comparison; it's a 33 year old movie, expect it to be campy.

Evil Dead II shows a different side of Ash; he's a little braver. The lack of the original characters kind of threw me off, so I view the Evil Dead II as a sort of remake/spiritual sequel. The actress who plays Linda, his girlfriend, is even different.

In Army of Darkness he solidifies his B-list super status..

As for the Evil Dead remake, the whole heroin sub-plot sort of threw me off..

I liked how it was a good homage to the original... But it tried a little too hard.

I own the originals and wasn't expecting to like the remake much, but I did.

As expected the new Evil dead had nothing of the original movies charm.... goory and creepy maybe, but not even close to the first 3.
