I came to meet a friend thinking that we would be watching Star Trek: Into Darkness. However, I was surprised when I saw that it was apparently Evil Dead. I’m a lover of horror movies. In fact, I used to watch a horror flick every single week. No matter if there are only ten people inside the cinema, it doesn’t matter as long as I was able to satisfy my craving for scary movies!
I must admit that I do not watch movies that much anymore. The high prices of cinemas made me want to just stay home and watch DVD. Also, my friends are all busy with their own families & dates that I ended up not having a movie buddy anymore.
Anyway, while I didn’t expect to watch a horror movie after a long time, I embraced it. I love scary movies after all!
Evil Dead is about five young friends who went out of town to help one of them cope with drug abuse. When they got into a remote family cabin, they found out that some people had broken in and left quite a yucky mess in the place. The youngsters discovered the Book of the Dead. As expected, one of them examined the book and unleashed a demon living nearby the woods and hell broke loose.
The story of Evil Dead is simple but watching the story unfold in the cinema was terrifying! In fact, I do not think I would want to watch a horror movie again. I watched Evil Dead last weekend but until now, I sleep with lights and TV on. I hallucinate that there would be ghosts or evil forces when I’m driving at night. Yeah, Evil Dead affected me badly that I didn’t appreciate it anymore.
Net, the film was uber effective! It was gross, brutal, terrifying and violent! To creep you out further, the first letter of the movie’s main characters’ names (David, Eric, Mia, Olivia & Natalie) form the word, D-E-V-I-L. Yea, scary, creepy, uuugghhh.
My rating for Evil Dead: 3.5 out of 5 stars
