Seriously? It's coming out in exactly 4 weeks. I can't wait. If you haven't yet, watch the 2nd redband trailer on youtube. this movie looks positively awesome.

No CGI is the biggest draw for me. I have never once been scared by anything CGI. This looks proper scary. Awesome.

Anyone else geeking out for this????

I'm still waiting for the reviews. I'm hopeful, but at the same time, part of the charm of the original was the way it embraced the inherent campiness. By going full throttle horror, I think it could end up revealing a lot of the 'stupidity' of the original in unintended ways.

Because you can't remake perfection, and I'm afraid this might be a horrible abortion by comparison. It could very well be awesome, though; I don't know. I love The Evil Dead trilogy, so on one level, I'm scared to see this one; but on another level, I probably can't stay away.

I'm not excited about it because it looks like every other horror/torture porn flick filmed in the last 10 years. Evil Dead is the type of movie that s seemingly impossible to reboot without it just being a different movie with the same premise

I'd feel this way if Raimi and Campbell weren't behind the whole thing. I think it looks awesome. And i LOVE the original three.

I don't get geeked for movies anymore. I have learned through disappointment to just not do it.

I loved the Raimi/Campbell connection, and I don't see a need to one-up that.

I'm not much of a horror movie fan. I love the Evil Dead trilogy, but mostly that's because of Bruce Campbell's Ash character. I don't see anything that resembles the campy b-movie style that we all loved about that trilogy in this new movie.
I am sure I will see it at some point, but I can't say I am even a little excited about it.

Speaking of Evil Dead/Ash...how sad is it that Freddy vs Jason vs Ash never happened as a movie? THAT would have been exciting.

Well, I was burned by Watchmen, but this one seems a can't miss.

Parts of Watchmen were cool, but I got tired of watching dudes face fry, and I wasn't even on acid.

Is it in the spirit of evil dead 2? Essentially evil dead one but embracing the humor more then trying to be scary?

I prefer to think of Evil Dead II as being Evil Dead I, but with a budget you can actually buy a car with.

According to some of the reviews on IMDB they are saying it's not really funny like the original, they are trying to make it an actual horror film. Not quite sure how I feel about that as the sheer campy vibe to the original is what made it awesome. Well, that and Bruce Campbell.

This is a common mistake. The original Evil Dead was intended to be a pure horror film, and didn't have many of the campy, slapstick overtones of the other entries in the series. This is going back to it's roots.

I understand what Raimi meant it to be, but it failed miserably at that, which is why it was so good. There are plenty of wannabe horror movies that had the same type of budget that Raimi did, but still did not achieve cult status. Prime example, the movie Ticks. The original ED was perfect, it tried to be serious but came out uber campy and it just clicked for some reason, mainly Campbell IMO.

Bruce Campbell is a god and I am skeptical they can improve the trilogy. I will be watching it though. DEAD BY DAWN!!!

Except wasn't it the case that Raimi got pushed into making it that way by the studio and Evil Dead 2 was really the way he wanted it all along? I don't know if that qualifies as "roots".

I'll wait until this thing is streaming on Netflix. Evil Dead 2 is a better remake of Evil Dead than this could possibly be, I'm thinking.

I mean, probably. ED2 is my favorite, for sure, but this one looks properly scary.

Peaches, I agree that this remake will be more of a horror story than the original. More than likely I'll go into this one thinking it's a new movie and try to not compare it to the original.

That makes me happy, although I'm going to punch a baby in the face if this movie turns out horrible.

1) The remake looks like a typical horror/shock fest and not in the campier spirit that the series in known for

2) Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard already did this new movie, better, with Cabin in the Woods and twisted it inside out

I like horror and different type movies and I was not impressed with "Cabin", actually it was a major pile.

I'll keep calling Cabin genius. Those of differing opinion thinking me brain damaged will be far from the first.

Cabin was epic. Anyone that disagrees isn't a true Seahawks fan.

I don't know, maybe I should give "Cabin" a 2nd shot but I bought the video based on reviews and it didn't do much for me. Yeah it had a different plot but based on the reviews I expected different.

Evil Dead remake obviously won't have any resemblance to the accidental cult hit.

The awesomeness of Cabin isn't in the plot for me. It's the send-up/homage/mockery of that particular subgenre (and others -- Japanese Ghost Horror, for example) that makes me appreciate it. In analogy -- The guys pulling the strings and forcing everything to happen are Horror Movie Directors. The 'great old ones' are the audience. They have to -force- these 'real people' to behave in particular stereotypical ways and make them make stupid decisions that no sane person would make otherwise they won't be 'following the script' and the ever-powerful audience won't accept it. It's kind of the horror industry saying, 'God, we make stupid movies' while saying, 'Because the paying audience demands it'.

And here I just liked it because it was cool.

Just got back from this and I loved the new one, it's about as good as anyone could hope for considering the cult classic source material. The setup for the plot was strong and feels well thought out when the horror finally arises. I really liked the gore in this, way over the top in a good way and just plain brutal in some respects. Lack of CGI really helps, R rating, lack of "star" actors, lower budget is a plus.

Only a couple things bothered me, notably one spoiler aspect near the end that I won't reveal for others on here and I felt they could have used one aspect from the original that wasn't fully explored. These were minor issues though and didn't detract from the overall impact and really surprised me with the twist and turns all the way up until the end.

Being a lover of the originals, I find this to be a worthy entry in the series and would be good with a couple more sequels if they go that route. I absolutely hate remakes of "classics" and was very skeptical of this movie upon hearing the idea of a remake being conceived but they did the re-imagining the right way. (Homage to the source material isn't overt, subtle changes in dialog and minor plot twists without straying to far from the original intent of the old movies people love, etc.)

Cabin in the Woods is a movie I enjoyed as well, agree with most horror fans on here about that one.

The awesomeness of Cabin isn't in the plot for me. It's the send-up/homage/mockery of that particular subgenre (and others -- Japanese Ghost Horror, for example) that makes me appreciate it. In analogy -- The guys pulling the strings and forcing everything to happen are Horror Movie Directors. The 'great old ones' are the audience. They have to -force- these 'real people' to behave in particular stereotypical ways and make them make stupid decisions that no sane person would make otherwise they won't be 'following the script' and the ever-powerful audience won't accept it. It's kind of the horror industry saying, 'God, we make stupid movies' while saying, 'Because the paying audience demands it'.


And here I just liked it because it was cool.


That, too.

Alright, getting ready to see this flick, I'll post my thoughts afterwards.

Ok, liked this reboot for the most part. I felt that they shouldn't have combined the first 2 originals in this one movie. They can redeem themselves if they go straight to Army of Darkness and make that into a darker version of the original and I'd be very happy. I would love to talk about this some more but don't want to ruin too much for those who have not seen it yet. If you are on the fence just go see it, it is worth it. This is coming from a person who thought that they would not do the originals justice, so take my opinion for what it's worth.

Oh, without ruining anything I will say that I feel sorry for one of the people in the film, they got messed up real good.

I'm intrigued with this new version, but not in any hurry... Loved the originals! :)

Evil Dead 2 was easily one of the funniest films I've ever seen in my life!
