2013 finds us faced with more evil than we could have ever imagined, so it's only right that the "Evil Dead" raises it's pain once again.
In this 4th installment of the franchise, we follow 5 unlucky souls into a cabin hidden deep within a space of woods rich with demonic history. This familiar course of terrain will make followers of the originals smile, as well as, introduce newbies to the unrelenting terror that is the "Evil Dead".
Unhinged Reviews would like to give fair warning to all readers because guns and courage will do little to save your soul from our review of the anticipated "Evil Dead".
So for those that are still with us, let's unleash the evil! "Evil Dead" begins with a group of friends being reunited at the request of one soul named Mia(Levy), tormented by drugs and looking to kick her habit in a secluded area.
Now, Mia's request seems reasonable enough, but little does she know just how costly her recovery will soon become. Mia is supported by her brother, David(Fernandez), a well to-do individual that has remained absent since their mother's death several years ago. Along with Mia and her brother there are three more souls tagging along for what they thought would be a successful intervention.
As the story moves on and the 5 get settled into an old familiar cabin, they stumble upon an peculiar book wrapped in barb wire. Strange right? Now, I don't know about you, but if I find a book wrapped in barbed wire, I'm not touching it. This would make the most sense, but for one curious, Eric(Pucci), the suspense of not knowing what's inside is too much for his mortal mind to bear. Eric removes the books binding and begins to read some of the most demonic text that one could ever conceive and that's where the story truly begins. The events that unfold shortly after opening the book are some of the most shocking and graphic displays of evil that we as fans of horror have seen in a while.
You thought I was going to tell you about all the juicy "deadness", didn't you? Well, you're just going to have to watch the film for yourself to see the hell that's unleashed from that ungodly literature. "Evil Dead" to say the least has some of the most gratuitous carnage that we've seen come out in any of the films this year so far. This movie is definitely not one for the squeamish, but for those that enjoy a good horror, it will leave your soul drenched in blood. All the necessities of a good scare are there: blood, guts, demons, fire, satanic rituals you name it it's all there.
One of the standouts in this film is the limited use of CG which is more than almost always slathered over a lot of today's cinematic releases. You know there's something reassuring about "Evil Dead" and that's knowing your gore is served up from masters of the craft. Take comfort in knowing that 90% off the hell in "Evil Dead" was mixed from gelatin and cottage cheese or whatever funky recipes they cooked up for our demonic taste. Either way, the horror is believable and the character's performances fit the bill ten fold.
So if you haven't seen "Evil Dead" 2013 yet and you are a fan of horror, it's a must! It's not often that we get directors like Fede Alvarez to get behind the wheel an revamp a classic. It took a lot of nerve to touch genius, but here at Unhinged Reviews, we feel they rubbed it just right.
