Evil Dead II

Evil Dead II ★★★★★

Having seen this directly after the first one, I am utterly convinced the evil dead trilogy is for horror, as to what the mariachi trilogy is for action/gunfighting. By which I mean both have first films which are way Indy, second films which largely have nothing to do with the first (or in this case is basically a retelling of the first) and third films which basically go Hollywood and take everything up to eleven. And that's not a bad thing by any means. But yeah really, the second part is all you need to start with, only peep the first if your curious. Also one thing I love is how many callbacks to this film army of darkness has, to army of darkness this film points. For example seeing a future ash In the book of the dead in 1300 AD as "the hero from the sky". I marked out at that.
