“..this new Evil Dead succeeds in matching its inspiration superfluous. This is one remake that succeeds on its own blood-soaked terms..”
Review rate : B+

“..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..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
2.5 of 5

“..the new "Evil Dead" has none of the first movie's handmade charm or hilarity, intentional or otherwise..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
2 of 4

“..overall, though, "Evil Dead" is more shopworn than shocking..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
3.5 of 5

“..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..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
3 of 4

“..it was blasphemy pure and simple. And we knew, every one of us, that it would be a disaster..”
by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer]
3 of 5

“..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..”
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]
2 of 4

“..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..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LATEST REVIEWS

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]
