Whether it be from the doldrums of the everyday or a deliberate dodging of the authorities which dog us in the aftermath of a mistake, the natural instinct to retreat and regroup is not only imperative but also innate. For it is in these acts of retirement that human beings can re-discover and re-affirm what truly drives them. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s second feature, Spring, revolves around such a retreat, as their seemingly unremarkable protagonist, Evan (Lou Taylor Pucci), jets off to Italy in order leave behind what may be the worst turn of events his young life has even seen. Though through this withdrawal, Evan finds not only the girl who may be the love of his life, but also a newfound respect for the world around him. Arguably the greatest quarter-life crisis story conceived since Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise, Benson & Moorehead’s second motion picture is a stirring, life-affirming work of idiosyncratic art.

Here’s a look at how people are reacting to the first Evil Dead TV spot.
What do you think? I wasn’t very interested when word first came out about the reboot and that Bruce Campbell wasn’t starring in the flick somewhere. The more I see of this remake though, the more excited I am to go see this movie in the theater. Audience reaction is a major part of my enjoyment of seeing a good horror movie in the theater. This movie looks to be a real shocker. Will you be screaming in the theater seat behind me?
