Sam Raimi‘s cult classic Evil Dead has been controversially resurrected, but, despite a few new plot additions, director Fede Alvarez hasn’t quite managed to breath new life into the story. It has some satisfying similarities with the original – gallons of spewing blood, an integral chain saw, an evil force rushing through the forest at an ungodly pace and non-consensual tree sex – but RIP low-budget aesthetics and downright silliness, you are greatly missed.
Evil Dead is apparently amazing and worth a few more new films.
Hovering somewhere between a teenage sex-romp comedy and Clarissa Explains it All lies Fun Size, an awkward, inoffensive and ultimately meandering tale attempting to target the abandoned 12-14 y/o market. This film lingers and loiters like a greasy teenager at the mall, and is about as appealing to anyone who is not themselves a greasy teenager.
Director promises theatrical experience.
So it’s like Evil Dead, but ‘not funny’ and with less of the legendary Bruce Campbell. What’s the world coming to?
