Ok, honestly, preambles to this kind of list is pointless, you read the title, you don’t need extra context, just read the list.
Evil Dead (2013)
The 2013 remake of Evil Dead really played with your expectations of who the hero was, placing different actions done by the original hero, who you’d be a fool to think won’t come up, over various characters at various points. Who will the hero be? The really boring brother? The Johnny Depp looking teacher guy? The helpful nurse? That other chick who’s also in the movie? Or the most interesting character to watch in the rest of the movie, despite being the main villain so far? Glad they went with the last one. Her heroic turn at the end is so satisfying because all that she went through, drug withdrawal, tree rape, demonic forced self-harm, attack from nude demon monster person, and dismemberment, she finally literally says “I’ve had enough of this shit” and solves everything in 60 seconds.
