How was it?
Surprised it hasn't been talked about already. It is projected to be #1 at the box office this week and stars DL fave Keram Malicki-Sanchez!
Why would you be surprised it hasn't been talked about? What about this movie screams Datalounge?
But anyway, it's a direct sequel to the original. It begins just minutes after the original. The opening is cool because you get to see parts of the original converted into 3D and the 3D is excellent.
But after that the film tries too hard. The timeline is wonky, too, since it takes place in 2012.
I'd give it 2 out of 4 stars.
I'm a huge horror fan. It was awful. Don't waste your money. The 3D played no part in the film and the writing and acting was atrocious. The other versions of the series with Matt Bomer/Taylor Handley and ErIc Balfour/Jessica Biel were Oscar material compared to this.
It's a tad over the top, R7. Plus there's no point in seeing it since the red band basically showed the entire movie. That girl-on-girl tongue split scene and the innumerable slashings were over the top gore-for-gore's sake. The original at least had a good script and good actors.
Well, luckily this also has a good script and actors. Have you not seen Evil Dead/Evil Dead 2? Because saying this is over-the-top is a bit silly if you have.
Looking forward to the Evil Dead remake. Hope they keep the distribution date in April 2013. They've already moved 'Carrie' from March 2013 to October 2013.
The new Evil Dead trailer looks very promising.
Texas Chainsaw 3D was entertaining enough, but infuriating and downright stupid at times. The timeline is the beginning of the problems. The gore is cartoonish, and if it didn't have the TCM name attached it would likely be a better than average direct to dvd release.
I think this is bullshit. It sould be obvious to EVERYONE that "Les Miserables" will continue to the the most popular film in the the country.

No it doesn't. It has recognizable actors. Star Jane Levy is happy and healthy back on the "Suburgatory" set. Makes it a Hollywood movie. The original and TCM were scary because you didn't know who these people were.
So Hollywood movies can't be good, R14?
[quote]So Hollywood movies can't be good, [R14]?
Of course they can, but we are talking "Evil Dead", "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (none of the sequels were remotely scary), Night Of The Living Dead, classics that had nobodies in the lead which gave it a more authentic almost documentary feel. Known actors take you out of the action because you know Jane Levy is having a Chai Latte at the Craft service table on "Suburgatory" as you're watching.
The Evil Dead trailer looks dreadful.
Shame on Rami (if he's even involved).
Scott Eastwood is in TC3D and is a hottie. I don't remember ever reading about him on DL. Ay scoop?
I wonder if the script for this was reworked to make it a "Chainsaw" sequel. It really seemed like a completely unrelated story rewritten to make the killer Leatherface so the studio could market it better.
It's pretty bad but still better than the McBongo/Renee Zellweger sequel from the 90s.
I can't believe that's the title for a new movie.
Shaun Sipos is the hottest guy in the movie. Introduced in the pouring rain with a denim shirt almost entirely unbuttoned. Hot.
I think the Evil Dead trailer looks good, I wasn't impressed with the first one. I doubt Sam Raimi would fuck up something that's the whole basis of his career. I watched Evil Dead 2 over a hundred times in the 80s, my nephews loved it and we'd watch it whenever I'd babysit them.
He didn't direct it r17, but he did produce it. He carefully chose the director, he wanted it to be more than a CGI updating, he wanted it to have a modern-horror sensibility.
I knew he chose the director, but I wanted to make sure he is the credited producer, so I checked IMDb. He's also directing and producing the Poltergeist remake, although there's no date given. They've been kicking that around for over 5 yrs, but this is the first time I've seen Raimi attached.
So far all I've seen is CGI updating. A couple of creepy-looking scenes, but then nothing but blood spatter. And they couldn't even get the blood right.
The original films (at least the first two) were so much more than their special effects.
This is the Evil Dead movie that was promised in 3D. Still waiting.

Yes, how dare they be so over-the-top, unlike the original Raimi films.
Fuck that true fans, bullshit. Evil Dead 2 was my first ever horror movie. I was obsessed with it. My mom worked in a video store nd I would sit in the back nd watch Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 over and over.
I think the new version looks awesome. And from my understanding, the trailer shows none of the last act. Plus, there ill be an Ash cameo!
Discriminating fans know the difference.
You haven't even fucking seen the movie, asshole.
Discriminating fan? Please. More like old ass snob. Real horror fans will watch the movie and decide, not act like fucking douches on a message board talking about "true fans" and "discriminating fans". Fucking tool.
Anyway, yes, avoid TCM3D. It's even worse than the Matt Bomer "prequel" one.
Here's a cool article that was posted today about the new Evil Dead. Sounds like it's gonna be awesome. TRUE FANS should be excited.

I agree, for the most part, and the graininess of a low budget filmed movie work to make movies scarier too. Evil Dead was so creepy when it looked shitty on a vhs tape, but then I saw it a few years later all cleaned up and brightened on laser disc (or maybe dvd) and it looked too "Hollywood". The new horror remakes are all brightly lit and too slick looking, and the cast is always to pretty.
Definitely changes the impact. For true, hot, non-neurotic fans, that is. ;)
