The Evil Dead remake promised to be the scariest movie we’ve ever seen. But did it live up to the hype?
For those of you that are new to Drunk On Pop, I’ve been trying to find a good horror movie for a really long time now. I mean, it didn’t even have to be good necessarily. I just really want to be scared. I went to go see Sinister when it came out, and was thoroughly disappointed. So, when I saw that Evil Dead was claiming to be the scariest movie ever made, I was sold. Evil Dead follows a group of friends who go to a cabin in the woods to help one stop doing drugs. When one friend opens up an evil book and starts to read it, a demon gets set loose. In case you’ve missed it, take a look at the trailer:
Okay…… Tell me that doesn’t look creepy. And, to be honest, it was. I definitely jumped on several occasions, and I was a bit freaked out on the drive home, but that was it. There was nothing about the movie that stayed with me. I’ve never walked into a cabin and read an evil book out loud, so I’m not going to go home terrified that this demon is going to get me. Also, the blood and gore in this movie was ridiculous. It looked like ketchup and barbecue sauce. This was one of those movies where I was wincing more from the grossness than anything else.
Also, I didn’t go to this movie to laugh, but I did. The characters were SO DAMN STUPID. Who goes into a basement, sees a bunch of dead cats, and thinks, “You know what. I should read the book that’s wrapped up in barbed wire. Oh it says not to read it? PISH POSH APPLE SAUCE.” I can’t even tell you how many times the entire theater was screaming obscenities at the characters on the screen because they were being so stupid. With all of that said, the movie is worth seeing. The demon did a lot of jumping around from person to person, and that added to the fear factor.
Also, on a side note, when I got home from seeing the movie I went to go into my bathroom and the door wouldn’t open. It only locks from the inside, and it instantly unlocks once you open the door. A majority of the craziness happened in a bathroom, so my friend and I were freaking out. That was the scariest part of the entire movie experience.
