As a remake (or sequel), Evil Dead (Blu-ray release 2013-7-16) follows the spirit of the classic (but without the humor).  Although this is a standard cabin in the woods story that The Cabin in the Woods (2012) spoofed, it is made effectively.  Some creepy scenes are shot well.  There is a new ending which gives fans of the franchise something different to see.  I also like the update to the classic tree scene.  I just wonder when can people make horror movies without requiring the victims to make stupid decisions repeatedly.  Note: at nearly the end of credits, there is a dialogue of some significance.
