Horror Ten Spot: 10 Reasons to see Evil Dead this weekend!
Well well friends and fiends, the time is nigh...the EVIL DEAD has been resurrected! Now, I'm like most of you out there, highly skeptical if not downright loathsome of remaking classic films, especially ones that meant so much to all us horror-hounds growing up. And upon first glance, EVIL DEAD seems no different than other remakes simply trying to capitalize on a popular title, no matter how blasphemous or unfaithful to the original it is. But upon further examination, Fede Alvarez's EVIL DEAD remake actually seems to display the proper amount of respect to its originator. If not in terms of the camp and cartoonish humor, certainly in the ingeniously visceral, in-your-face side of what Sam Raimi laid down in 1981. Seriously, just peep the trailers to see how gnarly the violence promises to be in the update. Still, there's no telling if the quality of the remake will justify its existence, after-all, few do. But what the hell, I know many of us are actually interested to see this one, so it's time to relinquish the cynicism and instead mull over the Top Ten reasons to see EVIL DEAD this weekend!
