Evil Dead 2
Ash (Bruce Campbell), the only survivor of an attack by human-possessing demons, holes up in a cabin with a group of strangers.
“EVIL DEAD II: DEAD BY DAWN finds Raimi operating in a much more complicated mode [than the first film], melding the horror of the first film with an increasing interest in slapstick and gross-out comedy. Neither evincing the relentless stream of malevolence that is the first EVIL DEAD film nor the good-natured silliness of ARMY OF DARKNESS, for many viewers, this second entry in the series is the best, finding the perfect balance between stupid and startling, between eerie and icky.” Film Comment
“Evil Dead 2’s rampant inventiveness and manic energy have ensured that it will endure as a cult classic.” AV Club
“Evil Dead 2 is, pardon the expression, consistently lively — a ghoulish splatter comedy that uses wildly excessive gore to provoke the kind of shock that lies between a laugh and a scream.”
