See, here’s the thing. We already had a remake of The Evil Dead. It was last year’s The Cabin in the Woods. Okay, it wasn’t precisely the same film, but thematically, Cabin served the same purpose that Dead did 30 years ago: sent up the tropes of a genre using unexpected horror combined with humor.
I see no humor here. I see nothing but grossout. I see no point for this remake at all, except that movies can be gorier today than they could be 30 years ago.
And how much you wanna bet no new Bruce Campbell comes out of this movie?
