Evil Dead (2013): Relentless Bloodbath

April 24, 2013

I have not seen the original 1981 "Evil Dead" by Sam Raimi, so I am judging this film on its own merit, not on how loyal it was to the original. Horror film that I am, I must say I do not like blood and gore type horror films. So the fact that this film had gallons of blood and gore splattering, gushing and dripping all over the place certainly did not make me like it more.

The premise was rather shallow. Five people are gathered in one lonely cabin in the woods supposedly to help one of them, Mia, get over heroin addiction. However, when one of them finds a chain-bound book in the basement and started reading the mysterious words it warned him NOT to read, then the demon awakens and the bloody mayhem begins, killing them one by one, until the inevitable last person standing.

Nothing was spared to make each member of the cast all bloodied up and dead. There just happened to be an electric knife, a nail gun, a chainsaw, anything and everything to slice, to stab, to dismember, to maim, everything to make a gory film gory. So if you hate blood, you should not watch this at all. Gallons and gallons of blood-like liquid were used in shooting this film.  Vampires should enjoy this one.

As I have mentioned, I do not particularly like blood and gore type horror films. I went into this movie not knowing that this would be like "Halloween," "Texas Chainsaw" or similar massacre type films. I confess I cringed and averted my eyes alright, as there were painfully disgusting scenes. But I have to say that this definitely was NOT the "astonishing," "astounding," "awesome," and "near perfect experience" that its hyperbolic poster would have us believe.
