If Hollywood is having trouble with deciding who its 'war and terror' enemies are, that's nothing compared with its crisis in horror.

It's not scary. It's not shocking. It just wallows in viscera.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

You can't remake a sense of humor. Alvarez may well have one, but it'll have to wait for the next project.

This Evil Dead remake is more 'blah' than 'boo.'

It can boast of some truly extraordinary special effects, but this Evil Dead is far more gruesome than awesome.

In one bloody scene, the leading lady cried, 'It was so horrible! It was so horrible!' Girl, I know how you feel - that's exactly what I said when the credits rolled.

I'm bored to death and sick to death of movies that seem to have one goal: How can we gross out the audience by torturing nearly every major character in the movie?

Evil Dead suffers the curse of its own mediocrity: while it is really not bad, it would linger longer in the viewer's mind if it were better - or indeed worse. As it is, the fun ride is over and forgotten as soon as its brisk 90 minutes have elapsed.
April 5, 2013
This flesh-rending retread simply doesn't recapture the ferocious energy of the low-budget fright-fest that set Sam Raimi down the yellow brick road to Hollywood.

April 4, 2013
Call this Evil Dead "Dead Serious," with actors who read clichés with all the conviction of a cast on a bad soap opera.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 4, 2013
The new "Evil Dead" has none of the first movie's handmade charm or hilarity, intentional or otherwise.

Rather overt about its intentions to replace the campfire story creepiness of [the original] with over-the-top gore effects and a truly unfortunate reliance on jump scares.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

If you wondered what the "Evil Dead" movies might be like without the central wit and charisma of Bruce Campbell, the answer now awaits you.

For a movie that's nothing if not a bloodbath, "Evil Dead" is as dry as the Sahara.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
April 4, 2013
A 2013 Evil Dead should have a healthy dose of self-awareness and adrenaline. This movie lacks both.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 4, 2013
The really scary thing about Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead is its failure to shock. Are we all now completely desensitized to movie horror?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 5, 2013
Sure, this is a higher-budget re-tread. 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.

A dead end.

April 5, 2013
That hope for a creative spark has allowed audiences to overlook the notable flaws of Alvarez's film. I get it. I want to love it too. But there are times where it's so hard to do so.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/5.0

Despite much old-school splatter, it's seldom frightening and oddly unfunny.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
