Evil Dead, Jr., 29 November 2003
Author: zpluscinema ( from San Diego, CA

This is essentially a low-budget rendering of the classic "Evil Dead" premise. However, I don't think it was intended as a rip-off to cash in on that cool movie. It's more likely that no-budget auteur Eric Stanze wanted to cut his teeth on this flick, and didn't want to stray too far from genre conventions. Not to say this is just "Evil Dead," minus Sam and Bruce and a few hundred grand. Compared to most of the shot-on-video horror stuff released, this is halfway decent. Sure, the actors are bad, but the effects are cool, and plot prances along at a pretty steady pace. And the plot, by the way, is a bunch of kids going into the woods and meeting their demise at the hands of demons they inadvertently resurrected. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. For what it is, it ain't bad. And just to comment on distribution, Miramax and the like aren't exactly chomping at the bit to get their hands on regional shot-on-video horror flicks put together for a couple grand, which leaves few avenues for the independent filmmaker to pursue. But Eric Stanze, I feel, has made the best of it, and has gotten his movies out there. I found two of them with relative ease. And just to be redundant, considering 95-percent of shot-on-video flicks should be thrown into a pit and burned by a Haz-Mat team, this is a decent, entertaining movie of nearly professional quality, and it does fall into that small percentile of watchability.
