Directed by Sam Raimi
United States, 1987
Horror, Comedy, Cult

Synopsis

Ash Williams and his girlfriend Linda travel to a cabin in the woods for a romantic trip. Soon an evil power takes over Linda’s body and Ash finds himself trapped in a cabin with a group of strangers, while human-possessing demons attack them.

Our take

Only Sam Raimi could manifest this remarkable mix of terrifying horror and uproarious slapstick to singular, ingenious effect. Both a sequel and a potent re-imagining of the original _Evil Dead _, it arguably upgrades the original as a masterclass in camp, courtesy of an effervescent Bruce Campbell.

Critics reviews

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.
