I spent hours researching and writing about what it means to record video in a movie theater - the laws, the industry, the etiquette, the social impact. It's all very fascinating, but in the end if the debate is taking away from the experience of the movie, well then it's all lost on me as a filmmaker.

I really liked the visual palette of the 1st half of EVIL DEAD but thought it got muddy by the end. This re-did is not a bad film but I think it's been somewhat invalidated by recent advents like CABIN IN THE WOODS and the proliferation of zombie movies and TV. If this is supposed to be a "re-imagining" for a "new generation" then it has to be a little more self-aware of where horror movies are at and not just turn up the dials on sound, gore, blood, sfx, etc, etc.
