ProA sheer joy in all departments!

ConsNone spring to mind!

EVIL DEAD 2 Recently I’ve been hearing the following from the uninitiated – “Evil Dead 2? Isn’t that a little bit like Wrong Turn and Cabin Fever?” Wrong way round numb-nuts, is my usual contemptuous retort. Not only is Evil Dead 2 the thematic template and basis for...

ConsYour mother might not like it...

For all the critical plaudits and cult status THE EVIL DEAD gained after it's release way back in 1981 it was certainly not a movie for everyone (your mom for example). So the movie wasn't exactly a blockbuster and Sam Raimi was still stuck making low budget flicks. So when the studio decided to...

ConsOther cast not so good | Not a true sequel

The Evil Dead series certainly does have a big place in every horror lover’s heart. As camp as they are scary and with a superb star to head them out they are favourites in pretty much every horror movie fans collection. It also shows just how versatile Raimi is as a director. From all out-gore...

'Baby, I ain't holdin' yer hand!' Well, you certainly couldn't laud this film for the realism of its special effects, but in terms of throwing everything at a film in the hope that some of it sticks and scares, then this film has it all. Sam Raimi is probably best known for his direction of the...

“You Will Die Laughing”

published 25/03/2001

ProFirst Class Comedy and Horror in one film

ConsNot for the faint hearted

In 1982 Sam Raimi produced the Evil Dead , a low budget horror move that succeeded because of the excellent camera tricks and timing that Raimi came up with. Raimi went on to produce American Gothic and more recently the absolutely brilliant "A Simple Plan". Anyway back to the item in question...

ProGreat horror story and special effects

ConsA bit gruesome at times

The director Sam Raimi first made a name for himself through his work on the Evil Dead films. In my personal opinion, the best of those films is Evil Dead II, which was released in 1987. Evil Dead II is about a young man, Ash Williams, who plans to spend a romantic break away with his girlfriend...

“Dead by Dawn”

published 19/08/2003

ProSpooky, funny, and great fun

ConsPoor production value

As a horror junkie, I watch a lot of movies, read a lot of books, and play a lot of games that fall into the genre. I’ve been playing Evil Dead: Fistful of Boomstick on my PS2. This got me thinking about the Evil Dead films. So, I decided to watch them again. Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn...

“Groovy”

published 17/02/2001

ProHigh energy and very funny.

ConsThe scares are muted by the comedy.

For his second horror-comedy-action flick, Sam Raimi dispensed with all originality and decided to remake his groundbreaking 'video nasty', Evil Dead. The original gained notoriety in the early Eighties when the video nasty witch hunt began in earnest, but was unfairly treated - being lumped in...

ConsIf you don't like horror run for the hills.

The Evil Dead II came out in 1987 and firmly established itself as a favourite among horror fans. It features a kind of hysterical, manic humour mixed with gut-renchingly gory violence and some genuinely creepy scenes. The end result is a horror masterpiece. Evil Dead II is basically a remake of...

Consa little too slap-stick, 10 mins too long

Evil Dead 2 is not, repeat NOT, to be taken seriously. Sure its a horror film that tries (and to some extent succeeds) in scaring the audience, but at the same time it lampoons the horror & gore with slapstick comedy. I suppose it must have been a tricky job for director Sam Raimi deciding on the...

“Give Me Back My Hand.”

ProAn hilarious film

ConsNone

This is Sam Riami's follow up to the successful Evil Dead. Once again, Sam teams up with producer Robert Tapert, and the star of the previous film, Bruce Campbell comes back to play Ash. The Plot. --------- The film starts by giving you a brief description of the Book of the Dead, it goes like...

Cons1 more to watch and that's all folks..

The Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn, is the second and with ease the most enjoyable film in this cult classic trilogy, not only continuing where the original film petered off but turning around and adding slapstick comedy to the mix in away that subtly mocks the original, laughs at other films of this...

ProA great horror movie

ConsA re-make, pretty much following the original

Sporting the tagline, “Kiss your nerves goodbye” - Evil dead 2 is essentially a re-make of Sam Raimi’s first Evil dead movie. This time round the movie’s bigger budget is noticeable in the effects department. However, the movie remains loyal by weaving in and out the original storyline. It...
