    Angst

    ★★★★½

    Definitely one of the more disturbing home invasion films out there.
    The use of camera work is extremely innovative especially in 1983 and it must have been a pain in the arse to film.

    Evil Dead

    ★★★½

    Evil Dead is an interesting one.
    As a remake it does a good job of capturing the spirit of the original. It tries to emulate the more serious tone of the original (the comedy of the series really started to go out there with Evil Dead 2).

    I like the motivation for going to the cabin in this film a lot. Instead of it being a holiday spot it's a place Mia's friends take her to rehabilitate so there is…
