Diablo Cody is a good choice for "The Evil Dead"reboot.

It's come to my attention that there has been some debate about the upcoming remake of Sam Raimi's horror classic "The Evil Dead"(Which you can now view on Netflix). One of the most talked about topics revolving this project is the involvement of Academy Award winning writer Diablo Cody. Diablo is best known for "Juno" and she created the hit show "The United States of Tara" with help from executive produce Steven Speilberg. So her track record isn't all that bad. She made one flop with "Jennifer's Body", but I'm not sure you can't blame it's lack of success on just the writer alone.



 Now all the trolls are coming out of their caves between sessions of excessive masturbation to slam on this film even before production starts. What gives people?  Hell the screenplay that Diablo is only doing touch ups on is not complete.  She is only contributing to the script with producer Sam Raimi and director Fede Alvarez.(his short "Panic Attack" is pretty F'ing sweet.) She is not writing the whole movie by herself.

 I will say that having a good writer like Ms.Cody on this is a damn good idea. She will at least make the dialogue more memorable. Can you seriously look someone in the face and say that "The Evil Dead" had great quotable lines. It had great effects with memorable characters and story, but the dialogue it did not. "Join Us" is the only line that comes to mind when I watched this. 



 Now I for one thought "Evil Dead 2" was the perfect remake of the first one. So I am curious at how they will reboot this franchise. Even though I would much rather see continuing adventures of Ash starring Bruce "don't call me Ash" Campbell himself. I'm not going to complain until I see the final product.

Let's hear your thoughts on this people.  I want to know what your thinking, tell me what's on your mind.  Yes I'm using the lyrics from a song by The Information Society as my closing.  Good night

  1. Guess I am going to be one of those masturbating trolls that have little faith in this movie. I await the Spill review with bated breath.

  2. I'm against a remake but I don't want to completely dismiss this because of Diablo's work on it. THe movie is being co written by Sam Raimi who serves as a co producer along with Bruce Campbell. If it sucks I'll gladly admit that I am a masturbating troll for giving it a high praise.
