I'm disappointed that they didn't stick to their guns with the NC-17 rating they got tabbed with a month ago when they were happy with the editing just to make sure it got into theaters.  I guess over the course closer to release that either the studio or the director got pressured as films that get that rating tend to scare away advertising dollars and hamper audience turnouts due to lack of promotion. 

Nonetheless, still going to see it this weekend.  With Campbell, Raimi and Tapert helped to backed this version that should be enough for fans of the original to want to go see it as this is a very serious take of Evil Dead with nods to the original.  There may be some moments of unintentional humor  sprinkled here and there.  Other than that, general reception to the trailer, especially when it was the red band version made people rattle.

 @RaithManan: I'll be honest dude, you're gonna be pleased with the gore. I spoke with Fede a few weeks ago and he said what was cut amounted to an extra second of lingering on gore here and there, nothing substantial. As an old school Giallo fan, there's plenty of gore here; it's applied by the bucket full.

"A reboot is for a computer". HAHAH!

I'm going to see this for sure! I'm not a fan of SAW or most gory stuff. But I have to see this because I'm a big fan of the original. I'm not sure how old I was when I first saw it. Maybe like 14 or something, it was releazed on DVD when I saw it. It scared the crap out of me! Sam Raimi did a really good job of making me feel like I was trapped in the woods along side Ash, and really freaked out by the stuff going on. I don't feel like that with movies any more. Not when I've seen Texas Chainsaw and not when I've seen Hostel. So I'm really looking forward to see what Fede has done, and see if he can capture that feeling again of being alone and being legit scared!
