The Evil Dead is back

When this hit my in box I was at first a bit sceptical as it could have been a re-imagined take on the film. It did mention a remake and that also can fill you with dread like when the remade the 80s classic Fright Night a couple of years ago to both critical and box office disappointment. This one, at least from the trailer, seems to be close to the original enough with a nod to the modern idea of what a horror / thriller should be like.

In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
