Review: Evil Dead

Evil Dead
Is there a task more thankless in Hollywood than remaking a film already beloved by millions? Particularly a horror film, which attracts more bloodthirsty obsessive fans than, say, your average 80s dance movie. Stray too far from the original template and you'll be lambasted for leaving out favourite moments, but stick too closely to the formula and you'll be criticised for lacking creativity. Against all odds, however, this seemingly cynical return to the cabin in the woods is one of the best horror remakes in recent years. Perhaps because, above all else, it makes one goal a priority: to be as FUCKING HORRIFYING as possible.
