If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Sam Raimi's 'The Evil Dead' set several new standards for horror cinema. Fede Alvarez's 'Evil Dead' remake seems adeptly aware of these standards, and plays with them in ways that are both reverent and unique. In fact, he plays with all sorts of existing horror tropes. In this latest clip from the film, one of the inhabitants of that ill-fated cabin in the woods finds herself face-to-face with an open medicine cabinet containing a mirror. If you've seen even three horror films, you're probably aware of what tends to happen when that mirror comes back into view of the camera. Here, Alvarez seems content to smash that expectation. Literally. Take a look at the clip below and let us know what you think.
