I just saw this movie in 3D yesterday and LOVED IT. I'm a huge fan of the original film and I honestly think Raimi did it to justice. I'll be posting a review to this soon. I really think this is Raimi's year and I'm very much looking forward to The Evil Dead remake. This was a wonderful film and made a Raimi fan like myself proud. Just to less about thirty years ago this young college student with a couple of friends went out to the woods to film a very low budget movie and made horror history, now he's become one of the greatest directors of all time. Way to go Sam, way to go! Now all we need him to do is remake Return To Oz!
