The re-make of ‘The Evil Dead’ (now just called ‘Evil Dead’ to reflect how much shorter our attention span is now compared to 1981) is produced by original director Sam Raimi and original star Bruce Campbell, and retains some of the same camera angles and the scene where a girl is raped by a presumptuous tree limb, but it’s all very polished and fancy looking now, making it feel common and predictable.

For example; it’s co-written by Diablo Cody, so of course there’s a cartoonishly perfect hipster guy and you can bet dollars to donuts there’ll be lots of cutesy dialogue like that.

Also, one of the producers is Japanese, and at the 0:32 second mark we see a girl with wet hair in front of her face. The Japanese are terrified of kids with wet hair. At least half of their horror movies are about kids with wet hair. Their version of Superman is just a guy with a towel.
