scruffLA saidWhen we still had VHS, i took all three Evil Dead series and recorded them back to back for one long Evil Dead movie, if you remember, II starts off where I left off and Army of Darkness begins where II left off, all three had the '72 Oldsmobile, I even once had the entire script to Army of Darkness
Part of the cult following is the humor, memborable lines, no CGI, the trilogy story of Ash and silly make up, i will see the remake but like many others, im not going to hold a candle to it, although Bruce Cambell is giving it his blessing
But again part 1 didnt really have much humor,no memorable catchy dialogue "Ash" wasnt a established hero character, & it was gross/scary. All that began in part 2 which is night & day different than 2 & AoD. So the remake is going back to originals' direction.
Plus theres no Ash in this.
But i agree, I'm a old-school horror guy, pre-cgi era. You're right most remakes cant hold a candle to original (cough ciugh, Nightmare On Elm Street remake, cough cough), however this is something that is worth looking forward.
