  • Really good remake/retelling, but l'm not quite as blown away as most seem to be. Maybe its because the original has always been one of my favorite horror films, and Joe Spinell one of my favorite actors. l do like Elijah in the Zito role, but the kills here seem a little fewer, a little less bloody, and the movie as a whole didn't quite disturb me the way William Lustig's original 80s classic did.

    This one also seems to lack the tension from the original. Maybe l'm comparing the two films too much. Kinda hard not to, though. This was good, but The Hills Have Eyes remake was better. 7/10

          • I'm truly mystified by the positive reviews. I had every belief that this would be just another polished up remake turd. I'm happy to be wrong.

              I'm just trying to help you out. When you write stuff like that, it's hard not to imagine you as some morbidly obese mouth breather sitting in your parent's basement all day fapping to porn with one hand while eating pepperoni pizza hot pockets with the other....it's like you've never seen a real woman naked before...

              • Excellent score, impressive camera work, and I really enjoyed Wood's take on the character. Much better than expected.

                Edit: Not that I expected much because I'm not a fan of the original, but as for it's contribution to the current horror scene; top notch stuff...

                  I like you both, Jayy & Jew.
                  Just kidding, I don't love anybody except my mother & sis.

                    I'm 6' tall and weigh 175. I work fulltime and have a girlfriend. Nothing wrong with admiring a hot chick. Now, you seem like the type of person that wouldn't know what to do with a hot chick if she gave you an instruction manual. You freeze up when a chick talks to you and you're a spitting image of Waldo. It's prob because you're waiting for the right opportunity to "come out". Just go ahead man, everyone is doing it now. No one will hate you.

                    • Saw it today and it was better than I thought. It's beautifully shot and Wood did a great job as Frank Zito. Nora Arnezeder is pretty damn good looking too. 8/10

                      • Dammit, now that's how you do a fucking remake! Pretty much echoing what everyone else has already said here, but fuck it...

                        Great cinematography (The POV style was used perfectly) some nice brutal kills, awesome 80's style synth score, and Woods (Who I originally thought was the worst possible choice for the role) ended up winning me over. Great job, Frodo.

                        IMO, this is easily the best of the modern remakes. It shits all over Evil Dead, Dawn Of The Dead and The Hills Have Eyes. WHY DIDN'T THIS GET A WIDE RELEASE???!!!

                        9/10

                          Probably because the MPAA would tear it to pieces.

                          • Haha wow, I didn't even know there was a remake of this. Love the original, although it's been a while. So this remake is good? Go figure I haven't heard of it if it's decent lol.

                            • I already liked Elijah Wood but this solidifies him as one of my favorites. He can do quite the variety of characters. Wonder what else he is going to do. Also, Wilfred is hilarious.

                              I liked this movie but not quite as much as some of you. I thought it was brutal and awesomely intimate (in a creepy way). Some of the POV stuff seemed off to me, but the soundtrack was killer. Awesome remake. 9/10

                                Nah, I think it could get an R.

                                If Evil Dead can, so can this.
