EVIL DEAD (2013) / HELLRAISER (2022): Trials of Addiction

Spread the love

Are you really going to re-use those needles? That’s the question we ask in this episode of Cadaver Dogs podcast where we cover not one but two reboots of classic horror franchises. First up, EVIL DEAD (2013), the Fede Alvarez remake of the Sam Raimi Classic. Does the classic cabin turned demon rehab hold up to the original violent entry? Second, we chain ourselves up for HELLRAISER (2022), the 11th entry and newest reboot of the Clive Barker series. Do these reboots do justice to these 80s classics?

Hellraiser compares the pain of drug addiction to the highest highs of sensual sensation, and Evil Dead revisits possession using the metaphor of the overpowering effects of substance abuse. Listen to hear more!
