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.
