FeedTheCollapse: Klippoklondike: The original Evil Dead stood out to me, it was unique. This one just seems generic, like it could be any other horror movie. It doesn't look bad, it just doesn't look like it has the specialness of the original.

pretty much my thoughts. I probably wouldn't be at all interested if it weren't for the Evil Dead connection. It kind of just looks like a well-done gore horror movie.


But hey it looks like they got the Angry Molesting Tree back so that is good.

All this talk of ED and no tree rape?

Don't recall ED1 being this gory... guess I have to pull out the DVDs.

/groovy.

ED is pretty gory, though this movie looks even more so.

ED was considered gory for when it was released. I think it was even banned a few places for being too violent.

Damn, Whedon was right. Cabin in the Woods was the horror movie to end all horror movies.

All that aside, I will watch this, the millionth prequel to CitW, with vim and vigor.

Cabin in the woods is a shiat movie, I wish I could get the time back I spent watching it.

Cabin in the Woods didn't end horror movies, it savaged the cabin in the woods genre and the audience who enables it. It's an equal part fark you to the senior production team and to the audience. Everyone is a victim in the process - the actors, the production team, the directors - victimizing themselves to please the almighty viewers.

Great horror movies are important cathartic devices. There's nothing wrong with making a horror movie, but after Whedon's desconstruction you've got some brass to release exactly the kind of film that he savaged. Let the cabins rot quietly, unless you have something new to offer.

Asa Phelps: I still haven't forgiven Sam Raimi for Spiderman 3. And since he'll make some money off this, I'm not interested.


Drag Me to Hell redeems him. It's very much a spiritual relative to the Evil Dead flicks. Even more impressive with it being rated PG-13.

One Bad Apple: Maybe it's just the way the trailer is cut but there doesn't seem to be any comedy in this one


I noticed that to. Without the comedy it's really Evil Dead.

And Bruce Campbell's shoes will be tough to fill.

I'm not sure if this was said already, but @ 0:28 you'll notice the classic oldsmobile that was in the original movies but this time, it's old and beat up. They clearly got there in a jeep which is shown in frame when the camera(demon) comes up to the cabin suggesting that maybe this was not the first group to visit the cabin.

It's just an observation.

I will trade you all the time I've spent not watching it.

Seriously, I loved that movie.
 
2012-10-25 11:57:42 AM  
Looks pretty decent. I'll see it when it hits DVD.

Loved the original ED trio, really liked Cabin In The Woods, too. It was a very original premise, which is tough to come up with these days.

Baron Harkonnen: I've got $100 riding on mermen.


Just saw that the other night. The wife and I just sitting there, the entire time, saying "What the hell?" and trying to figure out just what was going on. Occasionally interrupted, of course, with me spotting all the Whedon universe actor cameos and feeling out over it.

Leave it to Whedon to take all the obvious movie cliches and make something unique out of it. Not scary, but fun and unique.

There were trees in the trailer. Rape is always implied when trees are present.

I completely disagree. That film was the definition of "affectionate parody." It was to horror what Galaxy Quest is to Star Trek.

Another movie that was way more entertaining than it had any right to be.

To all the FARKers calling this a 'Cabin in the Woods' rip-off: notsureifserious.jpg

The cabin in CitW is from ED
The "moose" the slut made out with is from ED (Nice touch, I thought)
The "Angry Molesting Tree" (Seen on the scoreboard) also from ED
I'm sure there's more.

Sorry if I'm feeding the trolls

Yep. Misses the whole point of the first one, at least from this trailer's point of view.

Meh. I'll most likely see it. I'd definitely be more interested if they made a film version of the musical though.

Umm, no, it looks like YOU missed the point of the first one, Evil Dead was supposed to be a horror movie. Not a slapstick horror movie like the 2nd one or a total comedy like the third. Now, I'm not saying that the first one isn't unintentionally hilarious, but it was definitely supposed to be a "serious" movie.

I really can't agree with that. Everything about the construction of the movie was brutal against horror cliches, and the audience. The elder gods were horror movie fans. Whedon was saying that all the shiatty horror movie elements are there because the fans reject films that don't check the right boxes in the right order.

Good catch, but didn't that car end up getting sucked through the time hole? Although, I guess that only happened in ED2, and I don't remember what happened in the end of the first one.

Interesting take on it. I thought the movie was great though. Nice to see a totally different take on a cliched story.

AshCampbell: Into


Thanks!

Yes, Yes I will see this. I like how it is not a 'remake'. Almost a sequel, not quite. When he first opens the book it is written inside

Don't say it
Don't Write it
Don't hear it

To me that means it is 30 or so years later.

Seconded. I absolutely adore this movie. Saw it twice in theaters and I've seen it twice more since the DVD release.

That being said, I'm REALLY looking forward to this movie. It actually looks...well...good. The thought of a new and improved tree-rape has me giddy with excitement.

antidisestablishmentarianism: Hoban Washburne: I've only seen Evil Dead 1 once.

Really? That used to be the first movie I would watch with new girlfriends for a few years. All digitally remastered and shiat so the surround sound actually enhanced the flick.


Really? I've always been apprehensive about showing that to girlfriends (at least, it wouldn't be the first movie I'd show them) simply because of the tree rape scene.

Bruce himself has endorsed it, though that is probably because he is getting a lot of money. I love the man, but it's obvious from his career that he will do just about anything for money.

/but it allows him to do awesome stuff like Bubba Ho-tep, so it's cool
