"Halloween," "Friday the 13th, "A Nightmare of Elm Street." There have been a number of horror movie remakes in recent years, taking classic horror films from the 70's and 80's and turning them into modern day massacres. Ranging everywhere from "The Wolfman" to "Fright Night," these remakes either come across as really awesome or really unnecessary. I mean, hell, most of these horror films were only made about twenty years ago.
The latest, and perhaps most anticipated, horror remake to grace the silver screen with its senseless gore and violence is Fede Alvarez' "Evil Dead." Produced by both Sam Raimi (the original director) and
Bruce Campbell (the original star), "Evil Dead" looks to be different enough for first-time viewers and gruesome enough for diehard fans. So did "Evil Dead" live up to the hype?
