    As a longtime Evil Dead fan I'm excited to see Sam Raimi return to the horror genre. And early reviews are looking very positive so I'm definitely starting to get excited for this one.

    Hi,

    I saw the trailer for this movie and was greatly intrigued yet greatly disturbed by the imagery in the trailer. The first part of this move sees a boy of 12 get dragged to hell. I do not like this premise for the movie as I know as do you all that hell is real and to see people, even fictitious people get damned for an eternity because of a bad choice just sticks with me. I have not seen the movie and do not intend to, I have however read a spoiler review. Its not a happy ending. I just do not like it when movies portray this scenario, especially when its a boy of 12 or a sweet innocent looking woman, who just happened to make a bad choice.
    I suppose I need to seperate fantasy with reality, however like I said, hell is real.

    I would never go see it. It clearly glorifies hell and that is disturbing. I am glad to hear of others who notice in their conscience that they wouldn't want to see it.

    I saw it, but I wish I did not. Since it was by Sam Raimi and because of the ridiculous title. I was expecting a FUNNY horror movie (Army of Darkness).
    It did have some funny parts (dropping an anvil on a demons head), but it glorified demons and magic (offering an animal scarifice to the demon).
    Not to mention the ridiculous idea that a person could go to hell without God's judgement.

    Saw this the other day. Thought it was a funny horror film that wasn't meant to be taken seriously by any means. I don't see it as glorifying hell at all. As a matter of fact, it made it look like a very unpleasant place to be. Mm-hmm.

    Didn't think it glorified hell. There is one part that I didn't like and that was the um...sacrifice. I thought it was just terrible.

    Movie was okay. Some of the stuff was so random... I guess i went in expecting too much. But then again, I never like horror movies...zzz

    Saw it and loved it. The opening scene, and especially the ending scene were quite disturbing; which is a good thing because it's a horror movie.

    The rest of the movie is pure manic Raimi at his finest.

    It glorified it by focusing on it and making be seen as "entertaining".

    it's like a song from Styper - TO HELL WITH THE DEVIL!
    The old lady is kinda spooky from that movie. But it tends to mislead viewers that Vodoo or witchcraft can resolve the Haunting of that evil spirit.

    The Director's fun will be spoiled, if there's a character there who will witness the girl in the Biblical Truths and call upon Jesus' name and be saved from that curse. That will make the story short. ha ha.
