This is not a remake of the same film. It is a remake, but it isnâ??t the same film. "Evil Dead" 2013 pays homage to the original, but also goes off in its own directions and that to me, makes up for a lot of its downsides. Some of the moments that stuck in my head from the original are gone from the new film, but there are plenty new images to stick in my head from this one. The most shocking thing about "Evil Dead" 2013 is that this is Fede Alvarezâ??s first film. Remember that name. He has a brilliant eye for lighting, camera use and settings, especially for a rookie.
