Raimi and Campbell are back for a bigger and juicier sequel!, 13 June 2004

Evil Dead II (1987) After the huge success of the first film, Sam Raimi and

Bruce Campbell reunite for this Quasi-Remake/Sequel. Ash and his lady

are off on a nice trip through the woods. They stop off and rest inside an

old cabin. Does Ash realize that he's been here before, or hasn't he? Raimi and company (armed with a bigger budget and over the top special effects) bring us the second installment of the Evil Dead series. This film focuses

more on black humor and camp instead of shock and horror. Technically

this film is far superior to the one that was release a few years back and in many ways it's a better film.

What a better way to spend the night? Watch Evil Dead II with some of

your friends and let the party begin! Leave all logic at the door.

Remember, this is a movie, and a fun one at that.

Highly recommended!

A++
