Synopsis: Mia's brother and friends stage an intervention to get her to kick the habit. One of the friends discovers a mysterious book in the bases and unleashes a corrupting evil.
The Good: In my opinion, this is how you do a remake. There are elements of the originals and plot similarities to the original Evil Dead. However, this is its' own thing. I enjoyed the characters and actors and I think the effects look horrific (in the right way).
The Bad: If you're wanting the slapstick tone of Evil Dead 2 or Army of Darkness, you aren't going to get it here. Also the scenes can be very brutal. I still wince during some of them.
Final Thoughts: This tends to be a polarizing movie. You either love it or hate it. Personally I love it. I'm curious to see the new cut of the film (even though it only adds five minutes of footage).
In Your Game: I've already statted out Mia for the Army of Darkness RPG. You can find the stats here.
