Evil Dead (2013) - Blu Ray Review

Five 20-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin in the woods. When  they discover the book of the dead, one of them unwittingly summons up dormant demons in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession, until only one of them is left to fight for survival.

This new version of Evil dead  is Co-Written and directed by Fede Alvarez  and produced by original evil dead creators/Star  Robert Tapert, Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell.

The Film has a darker, more serious tone to it than the original Evil Dead and is really bloody. they use Old School Practical FX  ( which I love).

The movie doesn't have ash in it, but does it really need him in it? besides, nobody could EVER replace Bruce Campbell as Ash. This is a new Evil Dead movie for a new generation of Horror Fans ( fans of the original will enjoy it as well, I did).

I Highly recommend this movie to Horror Fans who are sick & tired of CGI , this is one of the better Horror Remakes to be made ( never thought i'd here myself  say THAT!)

Stay with it after the credits for something extra.

Special Features included on the Blu Ray:

Making Life Difficult: The Intense and Physically Exhausting Creation of the film

Struggling filmmakers - Kennedy, Cory and James - finally catch the break they were looking for when they are hired to shoot a 'behind-the-scenes' documentary for a major studio production.

But their dream job quickly turns into a nightmare when they explore the legendary haunted location and find something far worse than anything Hollywood could create.

Terror becomes reality for the filmmakers as they uncover the malevolent secrets of the hospital, and the sinister doctor who once ran it. Trapped inside the hospital with no apparent way out, the crew is tormented by the evil, unspeakable fear.

'Reel Evil' is basically a low budget, Found Footage Film  written by Shane Bitterling, Directed by Danny Draven and produced by Charles Band ( President of Full Moon Pictures).

"Here Comes the Devil" is a spanish Horror/Thriller  with a great cast. it is written and directed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano. It is from the Producers of "The Innkeepers" and "Stake Land". ( in spanish W/ english subtitles).

Sawney: Flesh of Man - DVD Review

The Legend of Sawney Bean has been told in Scotland for over 400 years, their latest  descendant ( David Hayman), driving a Black Cab, stalking the town and cities. He drags his victims to his lair in the Hills, where they are tortured and cannibalized before feeding the remains to a chained beast in the cellar.

As the body count rises, police inspector Bill Munro ( Gavin Mitchell) under great pressure to catch the killers, gives priviliged  information to a crime journalist ( Samuel Feeney) who decides to investigate the heinous crimes on his own, with disastrous results...

The film , written by Richard W. Wood  and directed by Ricky Wood  Jnr is an entertaining independant Horror film, despite the Low budget, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

David Hayman's performance as Sawney Bean  is wonderful, as is Gavin Mitchell's  performance as the Police inspector.

I Highly recommend  this film to fans of Low Budget independant Horror Films, if u want to see a modern twist on The Sawney Bean story.

The running time is 116 mins approx.

Special Features:

Commentary Featuring Director Ricky Wood Jr and Frightfest Legend Ian Rattray.

Interview with David Hayman
