Evil Dead 2 (1987) – Even Better Than The First One

Evil Dead 2 was the movie of the night last night. Released six years after the original Evil Dead, this is more of a re-imagining of Evil Dead than a sequel. Still starring Bruce Campbell as Ash and the same scary cabin as the first movie, Evil Dead is set as if the first movie did not happen.

This time it’s just Ash and his girlfriend that heads to the cabin, where they unwittingly awake demons by playing a recording or phrases from the Book of the Dead. All Hell breaks loose (yes, again an intentional pun – deal with it), and Ash is left bouncing between battling the Demonic forces and being part of those forces.

Soon joined by the daughter of the Cabin’s owners and a hillbilly and his girlfriend, the battle between humanity and the darkness just intensifies. Visually creepy, and full of campy horror goodness, I believe Evil Dead take what was started with the Evil Dead and raises it to a new level. While the whole movie is great, there are a few particularly great scenes, including a great eye-ball in the mouth scerne and a psychotic/psychedelic scene where Ash absolutely loses it in a room full of laughter – you’ll know both scenes when they happen.

In the six years between the original Evil Dead and this movie, Bruce Campbell seems top have honed his acting skills a little, and creator and director Sam Raimi seemed to have managed to drum up money for a larger budget.

Like the original Evil Dead, this too is a must watch for Horror fans.
