    I recently saw this. I had never seen the original film, so I watched them in both in reverse. I enjoyed the remake considerably more than the original.

    When do you think they figured out this wasn't a remake but the 4th one in the series??

    Okay first off, I died laughing when Jay brought out all those copies of Evil Dead. He double, triple, and quadruple dipped on the same film because Anchor Bay is an asshole! Btw, Anchor Bay pulled that same crap with Highlander by rereleasing it 18 damn times!
    Also the most Brilliant Ending of any Half in the Bag!!!

    It would've been better if they had the dude on the right as Mr. Plinkett, since he does his voice. I don't know what it's called, but have him dress up as Mr. Plinkett and have him as himself in the same shot.

    I've heard that if you quit heroin cold turkey you die. That's why they have other drugs that heroin addicts take to get off of heroin. So basically these are the worst friends ever.

    I actually loved this movie. And I didn't think the contacts on the demons ruined it. And I'd say the only characters I kind of sort of cared for were the main girl and her brother! The brother was a nice guy who wanted to help his sister and she was just had a problem with heroine and it seemed like she was still coping with the death of her mother! Do I think it's better than the original? Absolutely not! But I think it was competently made!

    Jay is my favorite example of how some grooming and fitted clothes can make anyone look bangin. You can tell when he sits down that he isn't even fat here, but his clothes make him look heavy, and his hair and lack of beard don't fit his face well. Compare to any recent episode, where Jay is #1 kissboi.

    I only just got around to watching Evil Dead recently and tbh i really enjoyed it. I thought it was a cool remake. Probably one of the better remakes that exists. It did some interesting things with it. Actually added a plot and characters which helped. I mean a lot of the gore and effects were kind of crappy and jarring and not in the fun way like the original but oh well, can't be perfect. I just really enjoyed the different take they had on the material, rather than just trying to do the same as what the original did, though apparently for some people that's not good enough either.

  • Jamal Gleeson

    The summoned otherworldly demon woman doesn’t have nipples, ah yes, that is the only weird aspect about that entity that struck these two as odd.

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

    Mia did try to deal with withdrawals, there are multiple scenes about it. She then, in a frantic action, solo bolt with the car, then met with an evil doppelgänger after she crashes the only car. Then the woods and her evil clone rapes her. Do these two not think that all these VERY brutal events not effect Mia? Did they pay attention?

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

    Did I just hear the fat dude say that it didn’t have stereotypical characters but also said he found them bland? Having the movie feel more realistic for motive to be at the cabin, with a group of realistic people dealing with all this crazy shit realistically, that all isn’t enough?

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

    Wait so they say they like it then don’t, then they do. They talk about it being serious with the very graphic absurd gore happening and that aspect being very different from the originals, but shouldn’t that be good? Shouldn’t the “remake” strive to have its own soul and flavor? It sort of sounds like these two don’t quite know what they want or like really and that they can’t just like it as its own movie, which is what it is, as a “remake”.

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

    They mock the scene where Mia says the evil in the woods has now infiltrated the cabin. Nothing special or spectacular about a woman who has had an evil tentacle made of vines with thorns, black ichor, and who knows whatever else climb inside her while watching helplessly as it does so. Yeah, nothing horrifying about the woods rape, inseminate, and possess her all in one slow grotesque climb up her leg. Not only does she not know what is happening but she just got in a car crash in a swamp and ran from an evil apparition of herself who summoned the evil tentacle. So in essence she raped herself.

    • Jamal Gleeson
      Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

      OH! Then pleading for help afterword to her brother, he just walks away like nothing odd is happening, sort of like he time no one can fathom the events that are happening in the originals.

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

    Bringing Mia to the cabin to rid her of her drug addiction, also the cabin is a cabin from their childhood. So two more reasons, one more over the originals.

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

    The one guy point out the deadites from the originals laugh at their evil schemes, which is basically toying with their prey, which is a running aspect through all of the movies. The “remake” deadites toy with their prey just the same, I’d say very slightly more effective actually because not only is the original deadite, one of the crew’s sister but the sole reason why all of them are there. We came to help her and now she is cheering for her friend to hack her arm off or telling them all that their souls will be taken, or eaten, forgot, need to watch my DVD after this. Oh yeah, just like the originals.

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

    Or maybe the mentally absurd aspect where the hippy dude points out the obviousness of the situation, a few times.

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

    The one nostalgia beast there claims there are no bizarre absurd scenes. So the scene where one of the girls is washing her deadite bite wound, where the little almost hard rubber bits that plop out of it squeal, or the subtle sound of the water sizzling as it hits the wound. Oh and then that same girl hacks off her arm with an electric knife minutes later. The absurd scene where the brother of the main character finds their dead dog and The Force flashes a scene of the main character bashing the pooches skull in. The scene where a fully formed demon entity slams a Jeep on the main characters hand therefore forcing her to leave her hand behind by wrenching her arm, severing the hand. The demon entity, separate from a deadite, that was successfully summoned from A prophecy in the book. My point was that it wasn’t foiled, the book was successful.

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago

    They both mention the “remake” does nothing new, except it introduces many new elements. It introduces new pages, new prophecies, new ways to kill deadites, a flipping of “the main character” and the way they are reluctantly the hero/lone survivor.

  • Jamal Gleeson
    Jamal Gleeson 11 months ago +1

    Wait a minute... one hasn’t seen the originals in a long while. Meaning one has no idea that the originals, sans Army Of Darkness, really is a basic story, the same basic story as the “remake” in fact. Some idiot friends goto a cabin, find a book, make bad decisions, release all sorts of bad occult stuff, most die. That describes both. Then the other guy has nostalgia goggles grafted onto his head so he doesn’t notice the same stuff.

    what makes evil dead 2 really funny is if you imagine it to be a proper sequel. first movie, ash takes his gf to the woods and hilarity ensues. evil dead 2 comes along, ash has a new job and gf, decides he wants to get rid of his gf so takes her back to that haunted cabin in the woods, then lets people read from the book, and hilarity ensues :D Ash is really a dick.

    Mike says that, "oh, this had to happen, and then someone has to cut their face, and thennn it can bring out the 'final' demon" But all the pages in the book are describing individual demons, which then possess the protagonists. So it's not so much spells as increasingly powerful demons escaping the necronomicon.

    'Fighting off demon's whilst going through withdrawal.'
    The best you could hope for is that your hot and cold sweats made it harder for the demons to take hold of you. Other than that you're just lethargic and useless and deeply boring. If withdrawal were half as interesting as it's portrayed in films junkies would deliberately force themselves into it.
