And when the smoked cleared the box office was still standing and another horror movie captured the hard earned dollars of ticket-goers in 2013. But what of the move itself? Did they naysayers say their nays correctly? Did the cheerleaders waive their pom poms in vane? What of this remake/re-imagined/re-worked/newly dreamed EVIL DEAD beasty that took horror fans to task and asked whether one of horror’s greatest splatter fests could be envisioned with new eyes and new characters under new directorship? The questions you are asking are all valid and for those of you who haven’t yet had the chance to hit up the theater you may be quite torn. Do you watch the new EVIL DEAD? Horrors fans, hope you enjoyed the long drive to the cabin in the middle of nowhere. You can turn your Necronomicon to page one and abandon all hope. Anybody remember the gas can for the chainsaw?
I can safely say that you have gathered today a diverse cross section of individuals discussing that very question as well as weighing in on all of the rateable qualities of Fede Alvarez’s new film. Jeff Konopka, Shawn Savage and Jimmy Terror joined by the esteemed writer of *Viewer Discretion Advised (FaceBook page available here: *Viewer Discretion Advised) and Evil Dead aficionado, Heather Seebach, take up the task of helping out the horror community in this installment of the Dead Air podcast series as sponsored by The Liberal Dead. We’ll run the arguments and the debates and give you multiple perspectives. Ultimately the decisions rest with you, but I’d be lying if we weren’t going to try our damnedest to entertain and help you make that decision.
We’ll start off discussing what we’ve been watching in general, talk about Evil Dead without spoilers and queue you when it’s time for those of you who want an un-spoiled experience so we can talk to the people who have seen the movie already.
