Groovy!
17 December 2018 | by loewleonSee all my reviews

The movie is basically like the first one but with better effects and more laughs. Evil Dead II is a Horror/Comedy at its finest. This film did set up all the hype about the franchise and it did its job very good. You will laugh, get scared and see some stunning effects for this budget.

Evil Dead II, the movie that we have to thank for it all.

8/10
