Best Horror Movies says: Sam Raimi’s low budget masterpiece caught the world by storm. Initial censorship issues kept this one confined to a meager release, but once it hit home video, a flood of fans discovered a new piece of celluloid gold.
I liked both movies. The newer one for it's gore and the original because it was pretty creepy
This is really the best horror remake that has come out in years. I love the original the best, but the ramke will make it into my top 1000 horror or all time list.
THat should say Top 100 not Top 1000.
even more pumped for the inevitable merge of both original and remake going to be awesome
that could turn out interesting.
I have to admit, the girl in the cellar was tough for me to look at. She was the creepiest thing I've ever seen in a movie. That girl deserves some special mention for her portrayal and the makeup fx people deserve some recognition too because yea...whenever she was on screen, I felt uncomfortable looking at her
i agree with the article that both films are equal respectively but i feel the remake is better, it is just really hard to say that the original has been slightly overtaken because the first evil dead is special in its own way, but if you technically count the efforts fairly i think the new version is in the slightest way much better. other horror remakes have also done this before like ; hills have eyes, halloween and texas chainsaw massacre had very strong remakes that can equal the original.
I found the new one to be anticlimactic. It was very good but the last demon was a little too easy to beat...
Coming from a guy with Doom in his name, this definitely means something.
Originals were better, but the new was ok as long as I pretended it wasn't called The Evil Dead.
Great movies, i kind of dislike how most remakes are done.(not all) Id prefer they take a chance and just call it something else.
If they called it something else...that kinda defeats the purpose of a reboot. A reboot, is essentially the same movie...re envisioned, while staying as close to the original as possible. If you slap a different title on it, then it wont be...ah forget it. You wouldnt understand. LOL
(not all) meaning some like batman and man of steel Imo were done great! This could have done just as well without as a reboot or a totally different title. I get ya.
The remake sucks... It does not do anything special
