I think people have mixed thoughts about the remake Kloga. I myself think it will never be what the original is, but that maybe due to watching the original version at the age of 13 and the thrill it gave me back then (I'm 39 now!).
Also people have been swamped with remakes of classic horrors, Texas chainsaw massacre, Friday the 13th, hills have eyes, my bloody valentine (which was a good remake imo but 3d helped it along).
In my opinion it will be a mixed sequel-reamke of some kind. Have you noticed that boomstick's already sawn and Oldsmobile is abandoned.
I'm sure It will do better then previous remakes - Raimi has more direct involvement in that thing compared to what original directors usually have, as well as Bruce Campbell...
And, by the way, i think that remakes of The Hitcher, Friday The 13th and Hills Have Eyes are not a bad things either. Far from original but at least better and more faithful then Texas Chainsaw Massacre (prequel strangley better) and A Nightmare on Elm Street remakes. Prom Night remake was not as bad as people always say about it, but it's not a remake at all, in name of case... Just a thoughts.
I am looking forward to it but..... From the trailer it does seem like a gore fest. If it has the tention of the original then it should be a good movie.
So was the original film back it's days. Just standarts changed a little bit.
Tbh I wish I could have seen Evil dead 4 being made before a remake, but thats just my opinion.
I still hope (for the reasons given upper) that this film is, at least somewhat Evil Dead 4.
