            Sam Raimi has done it again. Evil Dead 2013 is as gory and fast paced as the original. If you are a die hard fan wanting to see if the revision paid homage to the original, you are going to be as well satisfied as the demon in the woods was listening to Eric (played by Lou Taylor Pucci) recite those familiar words from the Necronomicon.
             Those unfamiliar with the original, well, you're in for a treat as well........
             The movie starts of with a bang, literally. And from the opening to the credits, the action keeps building. Mia (played by Jane Levy) is an addict whose friends have brought out to her families' cabin in the woods to stage an intervention. Olivia (Jessica Lewis), a nurse who is ready to administer any medicine that may make the effects of going cold-turkey a litte better. David (Shiloh Fernandez), Mia's brother. Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore), David's girlfriend and Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci).

             Very soon after arriving, Mia gets the feeling something is in the woods surrounding the cabin. Her friends believe she is just going through the many affects of stopping cold turkey. Even when Mia is attacked, her friends believe her wounds were self inflicted. Then everything and everyone starts going bat shit crazy. By the time it starts raining blood, literally, you are on the edge of your seat.

             Fans wanted gore and Sam Raimi and Fede Alvarez gave it to them. Limbs are cut, torn, and sliced. This film isn't blood soaked, it's SATURATED  in blood. For me, a dream come true.

              Oh, and for the fans, the true blue fans........the tree rape scene will leave your jaw hanging.
