Default Evil Dead (Official Movie App)


Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


Just in time for Halloween comes word of an official Evil Dead game coming to the App Store. For those that don't know, Evil Dead is a campy 80s horror movie directed by Sam Raimi (yes, the director of the Spider-Man movies) that follows a group of college kids as they spend the weekend in a remote cabin in the Tennessee woods. They accidentally unleash demons into the world by using The Book of the Dead, and all manner of Hell breaks loose. Main character Ash (the "King of All B-Movies" Bruce Campbell) spends all night fending off his friends as they each become infected with evil spirits. Evil Dead has become a cult classic horror film in the nearly 30 years since it was released.

Possibly, but it could be funny. Like LEGO Star Wars funny. Keep in mind that there are a lot of casual gamers out there. There are far more casual gamers then hardcore gamers in the iOS world. That doesn't automatically mean it will be bad. It might just be different. That's all.

Despite the graphics, I love Evil Dead so much that it will have a permanent place on my itouch forever.

The big problem is that it doesn't even remotely reflect the spirit of the movie. Yeah, the movie was cheesy as hell but despite the minuscule budget, cheap effects and bad acting from everyone but Campbell, Raimi still managed to inject a good amount of winking, self-aware macho horror in there that made it the classic that it is.

Turning all of that into some crap Wii-esque game with Mii avatar graphics makes it seem like it's attempting to take all of that and turn it into a mockery even of itself and wrap a cutesy, horribly misplaced bow around it. Its status as a casual game or not is irrelevant; you just don't take a cult classic movie brand like this and crap all over it for a few bucks. Hollywood already has that covered.
