Just a few months ago, I sat down to review Joel Schumacher’s 1990 Flatliners in anticipation of its upcoming remake/reboot/reimagining. As a fan of the original, I was cautiously optimistic. I re-veiwed and then reviewed the film and my cautious optimism only grew. But then I saw 2017’s Flatliners, directed by Niels Arden Oplev...and it was not good.
At a certain point while watching "Evil Dead" I thought to myself that this might just be the goriest film I have ever seen in theaters. That's a caveat worth noting. I would expect that most people visiting this site regularly have absolutely seen gorier films, but I can confidently say that there are things in "Evil Dead" that your average movie-goer has never before seen on a big screen. It's this ability to mimic, and at times honor the splatter-house roots of the original "Evil Dead" that makes this remake such a success.
Just in time for the holiday season, "Silent Night", the remake of the 80's chesse-tastic horror classic "Silent Night, Deadly Night", is headed towards an exclusive theater engagement beginning on November 30th.
