Evil Dead II

Evil Dead II ★★★★★

An all-timer that every time I watch it (I'm probably at about 50-60 watches now) it strikes me how audacious and bold the film-making is, how close they got to an actual Looney Tunes horror cartoon, and how good both Bruce Campbell and Ted Raimi are in this.

This time, though, I couldn't help but wonder whether the film would work better with updated special effects (the Sam Raimi Special Edition) in certain scenes, or whether it would destroy some of the charm that makes this movie what it is. Most specifically I was thinking of the Linda dancing scene.
