Mia can be seen wearing a Michigan State sweatshirt. In the original version, the main character also wears a Michigan State sweatshirt in the opening scene. This is also a homage to original director Sam Raimi, who is from Michigan. See more »

Save your money. This film is a cash grab of the highest order. A truly
shallow attempt to remake a film all horror fans hold dear to their
When Sam Raimi shocked and delighted the world with Evil Dead, he did
so with the purest intentions and divine talent. Original story.
Groundbreaking gore effects. Stunning visuals. Mesmeric tension.
He did so without the desire for box office statistics, nor did he pay
shills to promote the film. He simply poured his heart and soul and
genius into something he truly loved.
This pale, insipid, vapid excuse of a "remake" is an Evil Dead film in
name only. Nothing original. Nothing enthralling. Nothing shocking.
The sooner Hollywood realizes film audiences are SICK of these types of
tepid imitations, the better. Classic and much-adored movies should be
left to age gracefully and to find audiences on their own terms, for
generations to come.
The Mona Lisa was not repainted. And if it had of been,, the copy would
be spat upon and condemned as a FAKE! Well, this FAKE is even worse.
