Evil Dead (2013) (Unrated) (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Fede Alvarez
Starring: Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci
RATED: R & UR/REGION O/2.35/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 2
AVAILABLE FROM Sony Pictures

Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival.

Taken as a legit remake to the original and this Evil Dead just can’t hold up to the greatness that is the original. Then again, in the whole wide world of horror only a small percent even can compare to it. If we take Evil Dead as some form of stand-alone or loose sequel we can then truly let it breathe and stand on its own, and on its own it does shine in a few key areas. Areas that are even better here in its unrated nature. As an overall experience, Evil Dead is one of the more nerve-wracking movies I’ve seen in years. The score is creepy, the music and sounds as a whole can get unnerving, and to the movie’s credit the blood pours in buckets (Even more buckets here on the unrated version). I’ve not seen a major release this bloody in a very long time. I don’t know about you, but the more blood the better to me. That is one of the things that makes this version of Evil Dead so re-watchable.

We, of course, have no “Ash” characters but Jane Levy as Mia is a prise here to be seen. I really wish she had gotten the chance to be in this world again and maybe someday she will. She hands down brings her A-game. Things still seem really rushed at points and whole pre-credits sequence seems like just padding for the running time and a bit of a waste. Still, you can’t deny that this movie is a whole lot of fun and gets better over time. It is also fun finding all the nods to the original. The average fan who just goes for a good time will have a blast with this, while the more hardcore fans will find flaws but still enjoy it when they stop trying over-compare it to the original. If you’ve not seen this movie for a while, you need to get the unrated version and give this one another shot. You just might find that it is better than you remember.
