Evil Dead II

Evil Dead II ★★★★½

There’s a lot to love about this film, down to the smallest details. I love that one of the books used to weigh down Ash’s disembodied hand is A Farewell to Arms.  

I’m into anxiety-inducing dramas and thrillers as much as the next guy, but it’s great to watch psychotic joy bomb films like this and Raising Arizona in between. They’re great films on their own merit, but they can also function as palate cleansers between films like Dancer in the Dark and Dark City, or Mikey and Nicky and La Femme Nikita.
