Evil Dead, not be confused with The Evil Dead, is first-time writer/director Fede Alvarez’s 2013 semi-remake of the 1981 Sam Raimi classic. Dumb poster tagline aside, it’s an adept interpretation of the original. Nu-Dead didn’t fully hit the mark for me, but it stills reaches the lofty goal of my rewatchable zone.
I have been trying to save the more directly Halloween-themed movies on my list to watch closer to the holiday. Now that the month is more than half over, I rented All Hallows’ Eve. This poster caught my eye when I was looking for upcoming horror releases last year. That clown is probably the scariest clown I have ever seen! The synopsis read like a copycat of V/H/S, so I figured it would be a decent flick.
