Well, the real name of the movie is EVIL DEAD.  It’s a remake of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead (1981). The original film was a horror/comedy starring Bruce Campbell (BURN NOTICE), however the remake is straight horror. Blood and guts are a staple here and if you like horror movies – you’re in for a fright. On the other hand, if you’re looking to be scared and tickled at the same time, much like Sam Raimi gave it to us in his 1981 creation – get over the laughter. It’s not coming. Fede Alvarez is no comic and he had full producing support of Sam R. and Bruce Campbell in crafting the remake.

I’m a fan of the original film and I like a good horror story as well as the next, but this film didn’t need the title EVIL DEAD, it could have easily been titled CABIN HELL and have served it’s full purpose. Going into this film I anticipated that it would be comparable to the 1981 classic film by design. However, if you remove the whole “name sake” element – the film is bloody good.

The young SUBURGATORY star Jane Levy who played Mia (an avid drug user) – was awesome. The script is crazy. So many things happened all at once during Mia’s family and friends drug intervention weekend. Mia’s trying to kick her cocaine habit (again) and this time her brother David shows up to help, along with 3 of their closest friends.

SPOILER ALERT: The black cast member dies first. I just wanted to get that out and onto the table. She’s hot. Her name is Jessica Lucas but her mocha, intellectual frame doesn’t make it past ACT 2. Her characters caring nature took her down. The two white friends who were lodging in the cabin with the siblings were also taken down in slow-but-horrific fashion with the help of a hypodermic needle to the eye and an auto carving knife.

It was really good stuff, but if you’re a fan of the 1981 EVIL DEAD, this film does not pick up where Sam Raimi left off – at all. The cabin remained the same but there was absolutely nothing in there to laugh about.


So was it a scary film? Of course it was.
But when siblings reunite – I’m expecting hugs.

Instead what I got was a lot of blood.
Limbs being severed and spilling guts.

I’m quite satisfied with the directors horrific edge,
but it hardly resembled the old flick: EVIL DEAD.

It is indeed a good horror story that Fede Alvarez has set out to tell,
It’s legs are strong & could stand alone – with a title like CABIN HELL.

It’s a 91-minute spell and you’ll find no time for bore.
EVIL DEAD will fill your head with anxiety, guts and gore.

I ate way to much popcorn, invoked by the movie lobby smell.

Happy Friday to thee – EVIL DEAD could easily be titled CABIN HELL.


Hot TV Shows this season

and Basketball Wives if you like dirt from the West.

There’s MISSING starring Ashley Judd,
Who proves ‘the baby of the family’ is not synonymous with dud.
She’s standing strong & on her own and I’m not talking about her build…
There’s also TIME with Bill Maher – if you like to keep it REAL.

There’s REVENGE with Madeline Stowe who devilishly portrays “mean”,
Then there’s the insane comedy series DON’T TRUST THE B in Apt. 23.

Suburgatory is still running and Cheryl Hines is still at the helms.
There’s also KEY & PEELE with a mixed race feel –
Reminding us of Mad TV and ‘nem.

As not to bore you, there’s a play to the darker side
in ABC’s series: ONCE UPON A TIME.
Have you seen it? Are you watching?
There’s always an old fairy tale undertone squawking.

And if you’re seeking a show full of adulterated bliss
then you definitely want to catch LMC’s The Client List.
Jennifer Love-Hewitt is constantly winning.
She stopped whispering to ghost to give ‘happy endings’.
90% of what they do is legit and 10% blending.
Loretta Devine doesn’t mind in-house rule bending…

It’s what I’ve been watching while I’ve been home bound.
I recently had out patient surgery & it has notched me down.

I’m definitely taking it easy – to be spoiled is my chief reason
And this is a list of what I’ve found to be Hot TV Shows this season.

What are you watching and are you committed with no neglect?
I’m Qui
Up for watching anything except 16 & Pregnant.
…because my kid is already watching it.

Tomorrow the good show line up airs on ABC.
Check it out if you’re into vibing comedy:

First up to bat on Wednesday night

It’s about “A teenage girl who moves from the city to the suburbs.”
And everything sense worthy is thrown to the curb.
Her dad is single and his best friend is a DDS.
Cheryl plays “the flirtations neighbor in pursuit of man” best.

It’s family comedy in the prime of eve.
They live in the suburs… something like me.

The next show on the line up has big fam appeal
It’s MODERN FAMILY starring Ed O’Neill.
Please tell me you watch this – for it is a hoot.
Their family thing is a circus ring and the kids are really cute.

And if their multi scenario isn’t the show that moves ya,
Tune in to HAPPY ENDINGS starring Damon Wayans Jr.
Little Damon is all grown up – past his Major Payne debute.
He’s seriously funny like his dad & he’s also cute too.

Last on the line is quite the throw —
It’s ABC’s REVENGE served by Madeline Stowe.
Madeline is sexy and used to be so sweet.
Madeline is a b*tch in the Revenge series.
Check her out WEDNESDAY NIGHTS to see what I mean.

It’s always a pleasure for me to reach out and see
how many people are tube watching — like me.
