Very enjoyable horror movie that is funny at times.
I deduct points for the use of CGI (and shit looking CGI too) in a Sam Raimi horror movie.
Doesn't quite live up to the hype (it's been what? 100 years since Raimi has touched the scare genre?) but I didn't expect too much after watching the lackluster trailer.

Everything you said: agreed.

The best part about it was that a horror film finally made me jump from my seat.

Too many cheap jump scares but there was many genuinely scary scenes that make up for it.

Mediocre. Starts promising but soon runs out of fuel. Can't understand the hype about it, this is essentially the same stuff from the ED trilogy, but done without the passion and with a lot more money. This kind of ''boo! flick'' is excellent for making fast bucks though: you take a relatively well known director with a large fanbase, introduce him to a couple of CGI freaks and give him 20-25 million $ to work with. You'll make your money back 3 times.
