Bookish Blerd

I'm a book buying junkie who buys books faster than I can read them. But what better way is there to live than surrounded by books?! I read as much as I can and I do my best to give coherent reviews...which doesn't always happen.  I enjoy many genres, which is likely the reason I struggle with deciding my next read.

Review: The Evil Dead

The Evil Dead - John Bolton, Mark Verheiden

So, didn't love it as much as I thought I would. This was a no-quite-accurate telling of the original Evil Dead movie. There were added/expanded scenes, which were good, but they changed a bit of the continuity of the original story, which wasn't good. The made all the girls look like they were dressed in modern-day (circa 2008) clothing, when the original story was filmed in the late 70s. Also, they made Cheryl some rando friend of Linda's rather than Ash's younger sister. There was some added backstory, which was kind of interesting and they expanded some scenes, for example Scott ditching Ash and Linda to find another way out of the woods. They actually show a bit of his trek through the woods, which was cool.


All-in-all it was closer to the meh side of good rather than the awesome side of good. Not a complete disaster, but it could have been better.
