Wasn't hoping for much and i wasn't disappointed.
Maybe I'm just a bit jaded with these types of films, but really just an Evil Dead for the teen crowd and full of irritating characters, overly familiar events and no sense of fear or dread at all. I couldn't care less about any of these hapless sods. Yes, buckets of blood and dismemberment of limbs but so what? An uneccessary remake, made worse by an overwrought soundtrack and the horror movie cop-out; lots of loud crashes / bangs. Very nearly walked out of the film and the only saving grace is that it's reasonably short. Didn't even bother staying for the end credit bit...no need to prolong the torture. If you're in the mood for this sort of stuff, better to see The Cabin in the Woods.
Just out of curiousity, would anyone care to share (via Spoiler warning)? Just an omen for the inevitable sequel?
Avoid - 2/5.
