I did it! I finally watched the Evil Dead remake and while I did not find it scary the blood and gore definitely made me cover my eyes and turn away from the tv more than once. As a horror film on its own, I enjoyed it. Mia's journey to break her drug addiction mixed with demonic possession was an interesting twist. As a film part of the Evil Dead franchise, despite the throwbacks to the originals (camera angles, shots, the necklace, the book, and the infamous the tree rape), I felt it was an okay remake but it did not incite the same passion and love I have for the original. Honestly, take away the Evil Dead references and it is a solid gory horror film with a strong female protagonist.
