Ashley Williams travels to a secluded cabin in the woods with his girlfriend Linda where they find a tape recording of a professor and a book of evil. This unleashes a bunch of evil spirits that constantly terrorize Ash. Meanwhile a journalist comes to the area to study the book of evil. Ash and her end up having to survive this swarm of evil until morning comes.
The dagger is another one of the many weapons from the first movie that returned here. See more »
When the evil force is chasing Ash in the beginning of the movie, after Ash flies through his windshield, before you see the evil force go through the rear window of his vehicle, the evil force advances towards the car and part of the equipment used to shatter the window can be seen near the right side of the screen as the evil force advances.

In 1300 AD they called this man the uh, 'hero from the sky'. He was prophesied to have destroyed the evil.
He didn't do a very good job...

Nonstop fun as a group of people are trapped overnight in a remote cabin and tormented by the evil dead.
Not really a sequel to "The Evil Dead"--more of a remake. Director Sam Raimi expected this to be R rated and figured most people never saw the unrated (meaning it was X) first one. So, he decided to just redo the movie--just quicker, less gorier and with STRONG doses of comedy (the first one was dead serious). He did it, cut some gore but it was STILL unrated. So it was released (with the gore never put back in) and, like the first, didn't do too well. And, like the first, it quickly acquired a following and is now considered a great movie!
Basically once the movie gets going it never stops. It's more a comedy than a horror movie--a very SICK comedy! Hands are cut off, eyeballs go flying, BUCKETS of blood are thrown around, knives and axes are used, etc. If you go expecting a horror film, you'll be disappointed. If you approach it as a sick comedy you'll love it! I recommend this highly but only if you have a strong stomach!
The sequence with Ash (Bruce Campbell) and his possessed hand is a horrific and comedic highlight. Cool ending too.
