The reason I haven’t reviewed any new movies out in theater in a long while is because the Wilton Mall in Saratoga Springs, a mall that is near me, has no movie theater anymore. The theater closed down. So I haven’t been seeing that many flicks in a long while. I am planning to see the new Evil Dead movie next weekend, though, for sure. Gonna go with other people at a different mall, I think.
Could the new “Evil Dead” movie be just as good as the originals or could it be better? I know everyone wants Bruce Campbell to be a part of this movie, but it makes kind of sense for him to move on. The man is aging, he isn’t getting any older, and he just wants to pass the torch to younger actors. Remember now, Bruce was pretty young when he did the originals. I believe Bruce was around 20 years of age when he filmed the first and second Evil Dead, flicks. Even though Bruce isn’t starring in the film, I’m sure we’ll get plenty of Ash references, though! We’ll still get the old school Evil Dead B-Movie style but with a current feeling of today’s technology. The film was made low budget, just like the earlier films.
Everyone mistakenly believes this new film is a re-boot/remake, but it isn’t. It’s a continuation. It’s actually a sequel of the first film, ’cause the new film takes place 30 years after the first one. Maybe the new film can work without Bruce Campbell. If you knew what happened at the end of the first Evil Dead movie, it wouldn’t make sense to bring Ash back. I don’t mind a new Evil Dead film without Ash, as long as the original team are still behind it: Sam, Rob, and Bruce. I’m sure the new film will be scary and gory as hell, but will this film top the original? I’ll have to see for myself first.
I am a huge fan of the original trilogy, though. Can’t wait to see the new film, though. I’m sure they will do it justice.
