I bought this on blu-ray and I've watched it about once a week since then. It's no Bruce Campbell, but I still give it a 5/5. Speaking of Bruce... His show Burn Notice is 3 episodes away from ending. emoticon

I just rented this last week and loved it. I have to admit - I never saw the original but I am going to this weekend (Amazon Prime)

I haven't caught this new version. I may wait till it reaches cable....of course, if it is on Showtime or The Movie Channel, I can forget it since Time Warner & CBS have blocked my premium channels. Gee.....I am so angry about that!!!

You can't wait for motivation to strike; sometimes you need to dig deep into yourself and find the motivation on your own.

I'm with the majority- totally loved the original, but I really liked this. I agree- totally liked the framing with the drug addiction to explain away her...later issues. 4/5 chainsaws for me on that one

I remember liking this one better than the original, but it's been a long time. It's one of those that I do enjoy rewatching from time to time. Maybe it's time again.

I'm a huge Bruce Campbell fan so I think he makes all the difference. The remake was ok, but I didn't like it nearly as well as the original. Of course of the originals, Army of Darkness was always my favorite, not Evil Dead.

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

Remake... or retelling. :) I just watched this last night and I loved it. I watched it as a separate new movie trying to avoid comparisons. I love the original, but I loved this one, too... they were very different in so many ways. I'd give it 5/5 :)

Remakes do not phase me in the least... I'm like, Bring it On!! :) Another perspective of the story... or perhaps a retelling of a story. I'm all for it, let's see whatcha got.

3 of 5 for me. I love the original but this one had its own merits. As long as you don't try to compare the two it is enjoyable and worth the watch.

I really hate it that they're remaking EVERYTHING but every once in a while I get down off my high horse and watch a remake. We thought this one was going to be good because of the trailer but we were disappointed. Picked it apart until nothing was left. Two thumbs down from me or 1/5 stars.

I thought it was quite good. The framework of the drug intervention worked well as an excuse for the group initially sticking around when horrible stuff starts happening. It was better than I expected. I went in with a bias though and still like the campy original better.

Good morning.

Today's movie is Evil Dead (2013). I watched this a couple of nights ago and I thought it was better than the original. I give it 3 out of 5 stars. What about you?

Enjoy the day.
