Turn Up the Evil!


« on: March 25, 2013, 09:44:55 AM »

I recently saw The Evil Dead again on Netflix. It's much better than I remember it being the first time I saw it, decades ago. Low-budget, sure, but when I watched it this time, it actually made sense and creeped me out a bit.

Classic to us, maybe not so much to the mainstream movie audience.

Raimi said it's not a remake, rather a re-cap. True fans should know this!  TongueOut

I know I'm going to get killed for saying this, but I actually like Evil Dead waaaay more then Evil Dead 2 or Army of Darkness. Army was just kinda dumb to me and Evil Dead 2 is a less gory version of the first one with some slapstick.

I'm sure the dumbness was Intentional because Raimi knew exactly what he was doing. For years Army was my least favorite of the Evil Dead movies, but I thought of it as a pure Comedy (which it is) and the movie started to grow on me.

I gotta go with Criswell on this one-the first was the best-the second was fun-ARMY OF DARKNESS-dumb. Dont get me wrong-dumb is ok-but Sam turned into a bigshot director and lost his heart-just like Peter Jackson.

Maybe i'm on my own here but I liked Sam's spiderman movies.  He had more heart in it then the current remake.  Also he added some of his horror roots to the movies, like the scene when doc oct was in the hospital.
