Remaking this movie was always going to be a challenge - after all the original trilogy are now cult classics. But remake it they did. With Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell listed as producers - we knew what to expect. Blood, gore and lots of it. In this respect it didn't disappoint - it was sufficiently gruesome to cause grimacing and groans from the audience. It doffed it's hat to the original movies in a few places and was an entertaining film with a great performance by Jane Levy. But really - it just made me want to watch Cabin in the Woods (again).
