Just came back from seeing the remake of Evil Dead. I don’t think I’m spoiling anything when I say holy mother of cake there is a lot of duct tape used in this movie. If there is a cut, it’s patched with duct tape. If there is a puncture, it’s patched with duct tape. If a limb is removed, it’s patched with duct tape. I shit you not. A limb is patched with duct tape.
Other than that? It was… fun. It was by no means good or even scary, but it was certainly entertaining. The third act begins to drag with about twenty minutes left and there’s no remarkable payoff for it. You’ll notice a ton of dialogue and imagery seemingly ripped from The Exorcist and it’s a little distracting. There’s also a famous dead end from the first movie curiously included in this one. I won’t tell you what happens with it.
Oh, and the end credits are the beginning credits from Sweeney Todd. Like, exactly. S’weird.
