What better way to kick the week off then with some self-mutilation, a needle in the eye, and a good head bashing? Oh sure – a delicious bowl of Fruity Pebbles would be just as satisfying, but watching the transformation of Olivia in Evil Dead from 2013 is even more satisfying.
Kudos to the sound design department on this movie for the sound effects of Olivia (Jessica Lucas) sawing away at her face with a piece of glass. Not exactly the sexiest thing in the world, but it almost beats the fact that she peed her pants earlier in the scene. Leave it up to a horror movie to make a sexy girl unsexy in a matter of seconds. But anyway, this scene was definitely the tipping point for me as far as appreciating and applauding this remake of the original The Evil Dead from 1981, which in itself was a big feat considering my love for that original.
