EVIL DEAD - a little late to the party

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.
