Movie Review: "Evil Dead 2" (1987)

Image Source
Movie: "Evil Dead 2"
Director: Sam Raimi
Year: 1987
Rating: X
Running Time: 1 hour, 24 minutes

Ash (Bruce Campbell) and his girlfriend Linda (Denise Bixler) want to spend a romantic weekend at a secluded, abandoned cabin in the woods. While there, they find a tape recording from the previous resident, which contains a reading from the necronomicon ex mortis (the book of the dead). This reading releases an evil from the forest which attempts to possess people and swallow their souls.

This is the quintessential cult classic starring the greatest B-movie actor that ever lived, Bruce Campbell.  It showcases both Campbell and director Sam Raimi at their finest. It's an over-the-top gorefest with geysers of blood that shoot from the walls. Sam Raimi was really trying to challenge himself with how much blood he could use in a movie. "Evil Dead 2" is full of hard-hitting eye-popping slapstick comedy. It's a true horror classic, and we'd even go as far as to call it a masterpiece! A must see!

My Rating: 9/10
BigJ's Rating: 10/10
IMDB's Rating: 7.8/10
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 98%
Do we recommend this movie: ABSOLUTELY YES!!!
