Closer to Eli Roth than Sam Raimi, this brutal retread combines J-horror atmospherics with torture-porn kills. It’s more evisceration than invention but at least has the courage of its bloody-minded convictions.
yes the film indeed has a eli roth signature all over it but i must say he did it right, it was by no any means is not a torture porn but a very straightforward gory film with throwbacks at raimis work. if you are a fan of evil dead you can see easily that there are multiple scenarios that has raimis influence on it.
Evil Dead 2 was goofy because of over the top action and over the top acting, this movie is goofy because of over the top gore and over the top plot
