|This scene certainly brought back some memories... and my distrust of trees.|
|Jane Levy you are my new favourite.|
|Her facial didn't quite work out as planned.|
A heads up, I am already a fan of Jane Levy and two of the movies our male leads have been in (Deadgirl - Shiloh Fernandez and Carriers - Lou Taylor Pucci) so I went into this in a very non-critical headspace. My experience was pretty easily summed up by the fact that my face hurt the next day from the massive dopey grin I was wearing for the entire 90 minutes of the movie, there was also some giggling and maniacal laughter thrown in there for good measure. I think that this was pretty much the best thing that anyone could have hoped for in a remake of the Evil Dead. You could not have had a new Ash in it because no one can fill Bruce Campbell's shoes. If you went to theatres thinking you were going to get some camp you should be ashamed of yourself because every interview with anyone involved in the film emphasizes how it is serious and gruesome.
The practical effects in this film were amazing, I loved the gore some much, hence the grin. One of the things the film did that I enjoyed was the characters actually reading the book for more information after the evil is released, that's pretty smart if you ask me... well not as smart as not reading the book in the first place, but still fairly smart. The film even managed to surprise me with its ending. I won't say what happens, but I will say that some beautifully grotesque scenes result. In summary go to this in theatres, preferably with a group of friends and be prepared for some dismemberment and death.
|Mmmmm, maybe you might be hyperbolizing that just a little.|
