Evil Dead Movie Review:
OK, sorry for the lack of gore photos. There’s plenty here. I don’t really want to upload the images here and see them every time I browse my own blog! I’m pretty traumatised by this Evil Dead movie as there’s SO MUCH blood, gore and sadist images. There were quite a few moments when I really want to just leave and not continue watching (if my friend Vincent wasn’t beside me). It feels so evil to just watch it.
I’m giving this movie a 3 out of 5 simply because it’s not my type of movie. There were simply too much gore. Every single characters were tortured to death (except one, but she was half dead by the end too). There were a few attempts to make it funny, with lines like “I will feast on your soul!” (said Abomination Mia) and Mia said, “Feast on this, motherfucker.” but by then I couldn’t laugh out any more.
A salvaging point was perhaps the point that David (the main lead) was quite good looking. Muahaha. Ok, that point aside, according to the director, there is little CGI used in the movie.
“We didn’t do any CGI in the movie […] Everything that you will see is real, which was really demanding. This was a very long shoot, 70 days of shooting at night. There’s a reason people use CGI; it’s cheaper and faster, I hate that. We researched a lot of magic tricks and illusion tricks.” -Fede Alvarez
An advice for people who are planning to watch it, do not eat too much meat before the movie. I don’t think you have the heart or mood to eat any after the movie.
Do You Know?
The main lead Shiloh Fernandez was nearly casted for the Edward Cullen role in Twilight. He lost to Robert Pattinson (duh!)
Evil Dead will be in cinemas from 9 May 2013 onwards. Check out the Evil Dead (2013) official website for more details.
