Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods.
Competently made attempt to top Sam Raimi's legendary gorefest that fails, since it lacks the dark humour and the cinematic allusions of the orginal and it offers a disappointingly incomprehensible twist ending.
Maltin**1/2: "Blood-soaked remake of Sam Raimi's low-budget cult fave will likely be appreciated by rabid fans of the original (and its sequels)....Undeniably thrilling and suspenseful in parts, but very much an acquired taste. Graphic mayhem will be a turn-off for some, a turn-on for others. If you're a devotee, stay through the credits."
