Is it really "the most terrifying film you will ever experience"? No.
However, Evil Dead will deliver on some of the most visually gruesome and disturbing deaths in horror film history. It does pay tribute to the 1981 version in a few ways, but this film does have significant changes, like having a dramatic set-up to the cabin instead of naive teenagers preparing for a fun weekend. Much of the campiness that made the original great disappears, not necessarily a bad thing but something that was missed. Jane Levy, the star of the funny Suburgatory, makes a great scream queen. This movie was fun, a gross, sickening, crazy, bloody kind of fun.
