The remake of the Sam Raimi classic features no CGI according to the director, which might surprise you considering how enjoyable some of its gore moments are.
Cult classics will always have attached fans refusing to let anyone prise it away. So the makers were always up against it, though they did the smart thing by not just doing a remake but instead giving a different motivation to each important sequence from the original.
This is best viewed as a homage that throws in a few nods to The Exorcist. Eventually, I feel this movie will work best for those who’ve watched the original a long time back, and multiple times. Once Evil Dead, the original, has been burned into your brain, you’re sure of its place there and won’t resent this as much.
This here is the extended cut.
