Evil Dead remake

I liked it. It's not a sequel, but a solid remake of the original w/ a different story and cast, but the same premise - a bunch of people stuck at a cabin in the woods unwittingly release malevolent demons via an ancient book, and all hell breaks loose.

Totally over-the-top gore, and even better is that they dont rely on CGI - no, this is old school. Gallons of karo syrup and tons of rubber limbs later, I was giggling w/ glee at the classic special effects on display once people start getting all Deadite on each other. I was actually cringing a few times, it's that well done.

Like the Dawn of the Dead remake that came out a few years ago, I have to say that I went into it entirely skeptical but I'm pleasantly surprised - they didnt screw it up!
