Camera shadows are occasionally visible in some shots, depending on the format of the movie; such as the evil force bursting through the cabin at the beginning and attacking Ash, chasing Ash in the house, etc. See more »
When I first saw "The Evil Dead" (1981) many years ago, I was disappointed. I gave up on franchise and made terrible mistake. "Evil Dead II" is what its name says but also much more than that. At the beginning movie reboots the story from "The Evil Dead" and then continues where it left off. Story is painfully stupid and characters make stupidest possible movies in a given situation. But it does not matter at all. There's no introduction or characterization, it's complete madness from the start. The movie is an unstoppable bloody over-the-top action, exaggerated out of all proportion, with a camera that savages all over. Shots that shake and move in all directions, scenes from the first person and a lot of slimy liquids of all colors splashing everywhere. And in the middle of all that Bruce Campbell, whose acting deserves at least nomination for Oscar. The man is damn genius and I can not wait to see him in "Army of Darkness" and "Ash vs Evil Dead". Without delay, tonight. One of those "it's so bad it's good" flicks that you can rate both zero and ten without the guilty conscience. I rate it
