i just watched the evil dead in theaters and on reading this article i felt it was exactly how i analyzed it. i dont know also if this film will be remembered as much as sam raimis original but i think this remake deserves to be credited as a great remake like dawn of the dead and other remakes that might have surpass the original. for me it is arguably better overall but the original has one edge and that is bruce campbell, removing him is like removing harrison ford in star wars.
