Evil Dead (2013)
Critic Consensus: It may lack the absurd humor that underlined the original, but the new-look Evil Dead compensates with brutal terror, gory scares, and gleefully bloody violence.

Critic Reviews for Evil Dead
Happy days for those who love this sort of thing. But Raimi's effort, perhaps because we hadn't seen the plot before, was infinitely more scary.
A full-bloodedly grisly and macabre film that zaps over a few scares.
Anonymous, forgettable and doesn't hold a candle to the brilliant original.
I was left clamping my hand to my open jaw, not so much in terror, more in shocked hilarity at how grand the guignol was willing to go.
Despite much old-school splatter, it's seldom frightening and oddly unfunny.
Audience Reviews for Evil Dead
It seems like Alvarez didn't really get what made the original Evil Dead movies so successful, and so he basically eliminates the bizarre humor that made them so much fun and now goes for a bloodbath of pure gore that is entirely derivative and relies on ridiculous cheap scares.
Torture porn lacking any charm or dark humor that made the originals classics. The new version is sadistic, trying to be as disgusting as possible and lacking some serious suspense along the way. It's hard to give a shit about characters everyone knows will die very horrible deaths. There is nothing scary about going "ewww" every other minute. We're getting a couple of references to the original films, especially in the somewhat decent showdown. By that time you just want this to be over with, though.
Quite possibly the goriest film ever made by a Hollywood studio, Evil Dead is a new Horror classic, a film that accomplishes the nearly impossible task of staying true to the original's roots while standing firmly on its own.
