Evil Dead II is the sequel to the surprise midnight movie hit Evil Dead. After the huge success of the first film, Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell reunite for this Quasi-Remake/Sequel. Ash and his lady are off on a nice trip through the woods. They stop off and rest inside an old cabin. Does Ash realize that he's been here before or doesn't he? Raimi and company (armed with a bigger budget and over the top special effects) bring us the second installment of the Evil Dead series. This film focuses more on black humor, slapstick comedy and camp instead of shock and horror. Technically this film is far superior to the one that was release a few years back and in some ways it's a better film.
What a better way to spend the night? Watch Evil Dead II with some of your friends and let the party begin! Leave all logic at the door and remember it's just a movie and a fun one at that. Followed by The Army of Darkness.

(Horror writer Stephen King gave the film massive props in a November 1982 issue of Twilight Zone.) Not only did the … more
