New movies for April 5

New movies this week

Evil Dead

The gist: Can you believe it's been 32 years since Sam Raimi made this classic horror movie about a cabin out in the middle of nowhere you wouldn't want to visit? Neither can director Fede Alvarez, who has remade it complete with molesting trees, chainsaws and enough trims to get it from an NC-17 to an R. R

The cast: Jane Levy, Jessica Lucas, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor and Elizabeth Blackmore.

The buzz: It's an overproduced gorefest, but Bruce Campbell signed off on it, so … "The new Evil Dead is not only made with an affectionate nod and a wink to the 1981 version, it's also the bloodiest, goriest, slapstickiest horror movie since, well, The Evil Dead," Entertainment Weekly says.

Jurassic Park 3D

The gist: Steven Spielberg decided having one of the highest-grossing movies of all time wasn't enough, so he dusted off this 1993 gem, converted it to 3D and prayed no one would remember Ian Malcolm was the only character portrayed the way he was in Michael Crichton's book. Again. PG-13

The cast: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Bob Peck, some annoying kids, Wayne Knight and Samuel L. Jackson.

The buzz: Well, when you make a good movie, it remains a good movie whether the special effects look dated or not (and really, they don't). "Spielberg has gone on to weightier and more prestigious projects, but this thrill ride is one of his best and a masterpiece of the genre," the Chicago Sun-Times says.

No

The gist: A riveting look at the based-on-a-true-story story about an ad executive who develops a campaign that leads to the 1990 ouster of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. It must be at least half as truthful as Argo. R

The cast: Gael García Bernal, Alfredo Castro, Antonia Zegers, Luis Gnecco, Marcial Tagle and Nestor Cantillana.

The buzz: Any time you can skewer the media, the media love it. That's how they get you. "A political drama, a personal drama, a sharp-eyed study of how the media manipulate us from all sides, No reels and ricochets with emotional force," the Philadelphia Inquirer says.
