Movie Reviews -- "Evil Dead' and "Trance" 


Two big movies this weekend, we have the remake “Evil Dead” and writer/director Danny Boyle’s “Trance.” “Evil Dead” tries to catch the charm that elevated 1981’s “The Evil Dead’ from Sam Raimi (co-producing the remake with Bruce Campbell) into a beloved horror classic. The premise remains the same, five twenty-somethings find themselves in a remote cabin in the woods. When they discover the Book of the Dead, they accidentally unlocked the dormant demons living in the woods.

In “Trance,” James McAvoy stars as Simon, a fine art auctioneer who finds himself working with criminals to steal a Goya painting worth millions of dollars. But when he gets hit in the head, he forgets where he hid the painting. Much to crime boss Vincent Cassell’s dismay. Rosario Dawson co-stars as a hypnotherapist who helps Simon remember.

And then of course, we have the 3D re-release of Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park.” So which film should you see first? Take a look:
