User Reviews

 
One of the Greatest Horrors of the 1980's
18 April 2013 | by wwwdarkthenovelcomSee all my reviews

Sam Raimi's sequel to the original 1981 Evil Dead. There was more of a budget for Evil Dead 2 and was created from the original story line but with a bit of a punch to it.

Ash Williams and his girlfriend Linda take a vacation to a small cabin in the woods, romantically entangled they love the place and the area. Ash finds a book and a strange knife in the basement, the Necronomicon Ex- Mortis (the book of the dead)which the dead spirits and demons come to life by reading pages in the book. A romantic holiday soon turns into a nightmare.

This movie seems to have it all. Gore, suspense, great camera angles, storyline, script, dark comedy scenes and quotes.

Highly recommended
