Evil Dead Review


Good

Remaking an iconic classic is dangerous business, even if the original filmmakers are on board as producers, but at least Uruguayan writer-director Alvarez has a few clever ideas up his sleeve. And a willingness to go gleefully over-the-top with the grisliness. But aside from a few gimmicky jolts, the film is never actually scary.

There are essentially only five characters in the story, which gives the actors a chance to find entertaining details along the way. Mia (Levy) is a drug addict whose three best friends (Lucas, Pucci and Blackmore) take her to her family's creaky old cabin in the woods to go cold turkey. They're joined by Mia's aloof brother David (Fernandez). But none of them know that locals have used the basement for a sinister ritual, and they left a creepy book behind that supposedly has the power to summon a vicious demon who wants to possess them all. So is Mia's freaky behaviour because of her withdrawal, or has something evil got hold of her?

This twist is rather clever, as it adds a level of mordant wit to the film, giving texture to the relationships between these five young people who we fully expect will begin to die horribly nasty deaths one by one. Indeed, what follows is an escalating series of blood-soaked set-pieces involving dismemberment and death at the sharp edge of any implement on hand.

Be Silenced, Purists! Evil Dead Remake Is Delightfully Gory


Bruce Campbell Jane Levy

A full length ‘red-band’ trailer for the new Evil Dead remake has hit YouTube and purists, be silenced. For this one is delightfully violent and gory. A must for any horror or gore fan, whether you are a die-hard devotee of the original or not. Complete with a cameo from Bruce Campbell, it seems that Fede Alvarez has directed this one with all the love, care and downright irreverance that you would want him to.

Rather than opting to film the gory moments with CGI, Alvarez and his team went down the ‘painstaking’ and ‘expensive’ route. “There’s no CGI in the movie,” he told io9. “Everything you will see is real, which was really demanding. This was a very long shoot, 70 days of shooting at night. There’s a reason people use CGI it’s cheaper and faster, I hate that. We researched a lot of magic tricks and illusion tricks. [Like] how you would make someone’s arm disappear.”

At the start of the trailer, you have Jane Levy as Mia, looking terrifyingly terrified and talking in a weird, terrifyingly terrified manner about something out in the woods and how it’s probably actually in the house. Mia turns bad, throughout the course of the trailer and we’re left with the image of her slicing her tongue in half and showing her split & bloody tongue down someone’s throat. What’s not to like, eh kids!? Oh hang on, no – not the kids! The kids aren’t supposed to watch this one. It’s for “mature audiences only.”

Sam Raimi Goes In Hard With Evil Dead Remake Trailer


Sam Raimi Bruce Campbell Diablo Cody Jane Levy Jessica Lucas Lou Taylor Pucci

Sam Raimi and his production team have gone in hard with the trailer for the Evil Dead remake.

Branded for mature audiences only, there are moments in this teaser that are so gory, they leave you wondering what hell they’ve put in the rest of the movie. This remake of Raimi’s classic 1981 movie starring Bruce Campbell was initially met with a degree of pessimism from horror purists but he’s back on board, with Sam Raimi and indie movie darling Diablo Cody both claiming a writing credit for the remake and with Fede Alvarez in the director’s seat, they appear to have taken no prisoners with this resurrection and the trailer alone is sure to silence the cynics.

2013’s Evil Dead stars Jane Levy as Mia. Shiloh Fernadez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore all join her onscreen, as does Bruce Campbell himself, albeit briefly. Campbell, of course, is a huge part of the success of the original 1980s movies, so it’s a relief to see him on production duties here as well.

I Will Accept Your Apologies: Bruce Campbell on Evil Dead Remake


Bruce Campbell Sam Raimi Diablo Cody

The first image of the Evil Dead remake was released at New York’s Comic Con 2012.

Bruce Campbell was belligerently confident that die-hard fans will soon be swallowing all of the criticism they have spouted at the mere thought of a remake of the classic 1981 horror. Sam Raimi is back on board with the remake, whilst Bruce Campbell (who starred in the original) is one of the producers.

These days, there is hardly a horror movie left unturned these days. Remakes keep cropping up left right and centre; Carrie is one of the latest to get the modern Hollywood treatment and, of course, Tinseltown have been re-hashing Japanese (The Ring, for example) and European (take Let The Right One In, for example…) horror for years now. You don’t need to be particularly cynical to arrive at the assumption that the horror genre might be flagging a little. Not so, says Campbell, who, according to empireonline.com, insisted “Your sh*t will be just as freaked as it was in the original. We've got some really talented people who kicked their ass off. I know you fans were pissed. Don't think I didn't read about it every single day. Just wait and see the movie. I will accept all of your collective apologies. We don't want to screw this up.” Fighting talk from Campbell, there.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs Review


Excellent
Like a comically deranged Twilight Zone episode, this colourful animated feature underscores its fantastical story with some intriguingly serious issues. But it never gets preachy, and a stream of warped humour will keep adults chuckling all the way through.

Geeky inventor Flint (voiced by Hader) has finally created something that will make him famous: a machine that makes food from water. When it's inadvertently catapulted into the clouds, it starts raining cheeseburgers, much to everyone's delight. Now famous, he remotely programmes the machine to rain everything from ice cream to spaghetti and meatballs. While Flint's mono-browed dad (Caan) doesn't really get him, the greedy mayor (Campbell) wants a piece of his success. Meanwhile, Flint meets weather reporter Sam (Faris), who might actually understand him.

Johnny Got His Gun Review


Good
The last few years have seen a ton of anti-war, anti-government films come our way. I'm all for a director making a statement, but one wonders what the shelf life is for most of these movies. When your kids come of age, are they really going to appreciate half of what's happening in War, Inc.? Chicago 10 was a solid movie, but it served as a kick in the rear to the unsatisfied masses of 2008. The political climate may not be rosy in 20 years, but it will look different. Hell, it's changed immeasurably since January.

Dalton Trumbo's novel Johnny Got His Gun was first published in 1939. 32 years later it was made into a movie, which he wrote and directed. In 2009, it's finally available on DVD. Any questions about the movie's contemporary relevance are moot. Trumbo's motive is to capture the sheer monstrosity and hopelessness of war and the damage it does to a person's soul. Those themes aren't vanishing anytime soon.

My Name Is Bruce Review


Weak
My Name is Bruce resembles a lot of neat stuff -- an elaborate DVD extra, fanboy souvenir, good-natured roast, enthusiastic home movie -- but not really a full-length feature film. At one point, we see that the bedroom of small-town teenager Jeff (Taylor Sharpe) is covered in Bruce Campbell paraphernalia: movie posters, action figures, memorabilia, and standees, all celebrating the cult B-movie hero. The bizarrely self-referential My Name is Bruce belongs in that room.

The movie's not-at-all-secret weapon is Campbell himself. Here he plays, well, Bruce Campbell, or a comic version of him: a washed-up, drunken lout of a cheeseball actor, slogging his way through the direct-to-DVD likes of Cave Alien 2 (a fake franchise hilariously well-integrated into Campbell's filmography alongside the likes of Maniac Cop and Assault on Dome 4). Around the point that Campbell hits bottom, drinking hooch out of a dog dish in his busted trailer, he's kidnapped by Jeff and taken to the town of Gold Lick. The town is under attack by the ancient Chinese demon Guan-di, and Jeff hopes that his movie idol will be able to provide some monster-exterminating expertise.
