This is by far one of the best horror movies I’ve seen in a long time. It had me holding on to the edge of my seat. The actors were believable and great special effects. I like how the action started right away. This is a must see!!
People who gave this less than 4 stars needs to go watch IT or Annabelle. They know nothing about horror.
I'm a huge horror movie fan and Extremely picky but this movie is so over the top and delivers with rivers of blood! I wouldn't call this a remake,but a great addition to the Evil Dead series. Two thumbs 👍👍 way up!
A good movie just a little cheesy
Been a fan since the first one in the 80's and once again like all the others, it was great! It takes a certain kinda movie to make me actually scared anymore & they pulled it off without the corny scary movie theatrics.
Had some dumb stuff, like the apartment building floor opens up to reveal some secret lower level abandoned bank (dumb) which had stored records of some long dead priests (dumb, like they'd store their stuff in a bank vs a church) and that the priests made recordings on vinyl records (dumb, like they'd do that instead of keeping journals). But the dumb stuff was the easy way for bad writers to move the story forward. Whatever.
This was a 10/10. Scariest movie year to date. This is what this century needed. I was not expecting the movie to have the storyline it had.
The acting, if you can call it acting, running around being chased by a demon infested woman got tired after the first 10 minutes. You have to question the intelligence of any character that wouldn’t turn tail and run the first time the dead woman came back to “ life” . I worked in a funeral parlor, if a corpse sat up and began growling, never mind looking satanic, the room would have been empty in less than two minutes. Yet they stayed and remained unmoving as it was crawling on the ceiling towards them, ya think there’s something wrong with mommy now ?? Evil dead meets brain dead. The gore was excessive, gushing blood everywhere, it wasn’t really scary and it did deviate from the original movie. When you have a horror classic, remakes don’t always cut it. And how many little girls are going to open the door for a scary monster ? But if you enjoy stupid people getting massacred and wallowing in tons of blood, this is your movie. Enjoy !
I will never look at my cheese grater the same again. Loved it!!!
I wasn’t there to judge but to enjoy the show
Superbly creepy, completely gruesome, and thoroughly satisfying. So far it's the best horror film of 2023. Only serious horror fans need apply, however. Many will find it too much.
Nothing but blood. Fell asleep twice.
If you are expecting to be entertained by this movie - FORGET IT - THEY JUST THREW GALLONS OF BLOOD AND NOTHING ELSE. The story line deviated away from the original and was just boring. I fought going to sleep and curses myself for stooping this low to pay money to see pails of blood. Do yourself a favor - go see something else
It's an Evil Dead movie and that alone makes it a buy for me later. However, I won't be wearing it out like it's predecessors. Likes - The gore was fantastic! If you don't care about plot, things making sense, and you just wanna see a straight up slobber-knocker, THIS is the movie for you. The effects in this movie were outstanding. 2 - the silly horror humor that only a horror movie lover would enjoy. I thought this movie had it well throughout, not overdone and not forced. 3 - the creeps and jump scenes were fairly good. Some were a bit predictable but overall, they fit and were well timed. Dislikes - I only got 2 but they are a real put off. 1- the boy who finds the book is just STOOOOPID - how he finds the book, what he does with it, what he refuses to do with it - i dunno. If I were to splash blood on a book and it opens up on its own to a demonic ritual, i'd be a bit freaked and get rid of it!! Not this kid... oh no! "Lets keep reading and listening to these demonic records at the same time. Surely nothing bad will happen." But if not for him, there wouldn't have been a movie. 2 - the book is obviously the centerpiece of the movie. But in the movie, the book seems to be overemphasized with no real substance. And what I mean is that any Evil Dead fan knows that the Necronomicon shows the demons and preface what's in store for our innocent screamers. Well in this movie, the book was shown flipping through pages a lot, but only 3 demons really came from that. I just feel that the balance w the book was off and a bit redundant throughout the movie. In previous Dead movies, it was focused on early and then at the end. This was done throughout the course of the movie and posed more of a flow disruption than anything. I got 1 "meh." - The plot was not really good, especially w the
No Bruce Campbell, no need to see.
