"I'LL SWALLOW YOUR SOUL I'LL SWALLOW YOUR SOUL I'LL SWALLOW YOUR SOUL I'LL SWALLOW YOUR SOUL I'LL SWALLOW YOUR- ACK!!!!"
Although initially similar in tone to the first movie, Evil Dead 2 gradually obliterates audience expectations with a farcical, preposterous plot, hammy and over-the-top performances, zany camerawork and editing, brilliant practical special effects, and outrageous slapstick humor that boldly makes the gore part of the fun. Dead by Dawn is the defining benchmark of the comedy-horror genre that has yet to be surpassed, in my opinion.
Bruce Campbell is the man. He's funny as Hell in this and he almost reminds me of Jim Carrey in his early years.
