Movie Reviews

  • this new Evil Dead succeeds in matching its inspiration superfluous. This is one remake that succeeds on its own blood-soaked terms
    by Ian Buckwalter [NPR ]
  • the new Evil Dead is not only made with an affectionate nod and a wink to the 1981 version, it's also the bloodiest, goriest, slapstickiest horror movie since, well, The Evil Dead
    Review rate : B+ by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • the new "Evil Dead" has none of the first movie's handmade charm or hilarity, intentional or otherwise
    2.5 of 5 by Manohla Dargis [New York Times ]
  • overall, though, "Evil Dead" is more shopworn than shocking
    2 of 4 by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • it's unlikely the movie will gain the same ardent following as Raimi's debut, but it offers enough good-time gore, goofiness, scares and screams to leave an audience feeling a certain elated exhaustion
    3.5 of 5 by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times ]
  • it was blasphemy pure and simple. And we knew, every one of us, that it would be a disaster
    3 of 4 by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • Evil Dead more than delivers: Blood, piss and vomit flow copiously; bodies get hacked with electric slicers and chainsaws; our possessed antiheroine even does the Showgirls pole lick on the sharp side of an X-Acto knife
    3 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • but the plotting as a whole feels fresh, as does the emphasis on women strong enough to defend themselves
    by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice ]
  • but a remake shouldn't exist simply to ramp up the graphic violence, even if special effects have improved immeasurably in the past 30 years
    2 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
