The imagery is vivid, the performances look particularly intense, and soaking the entire thing is just dripping in the rest stuff. This is a call back to the grungy, mean original and not the campy slapstick of the sequels, which would go on to colour the cultural perception of the series. There is no doubt this is a movie for fans of extreme cinema, as one such deviant I hope we get to see the film uncut. I hope the supernatural slant allows the MPAA/BBFC to cut it some slack.
Starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Elizabeth Blackmore, Evil Dead will be released in the UK on 19th April 2013.
