Product Description

Writer-director Sam Raimi's extremely stylized, blood-soaked follow-up to his creepy Evil Dead isn't really a sequel; rather, it's a remake on a better budget. It also isn't really a horror film (though there are plenty of decapitations, zombies, supernatural demons, and gore) as much as it is a hilarious, sophisticated slapstick send-up of the terror genre. Raimi takes every horror convention that exists and exaggerates it with mind-blowing special effects, crossed with mocking Three Stooges humor. The plot alone is a genre cliché right out of any number of horror films. Several teens (including our hero, Ash, played by Bruce Campbell in a manic tour-de-force of physical comedy) visit a broken-down cottage in the woods--miles from civilization--find a copy of the Book of the Dead, and unleash supernatural powers that gut every character in sight. All, that is, except Ash, who takes this very personally and spends much of the of the film getting his head smashed while battling the unseen forces. Raimi uses this bare-bones story as a stage to showcase dazzling special effects and eye-popping visuals, including some of the most spectacular point-of-view Steadicam work ever (done by Peter Deming). Although it went unnoticed in the theaters, the film has since become an influential cult-video favorite, paving the way for over-the-top comic gross-out films like Peter Jackson's Dead Alive. The DVD version presents the film in its original 1:85 to 1 aspect ratio, and includes the theatrical trailer. --Dave McCoy --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

First off, I have bought this movie twice on DVD before (the reissue with the 'UK' cover and The Book of The Dead Edition) so obviously I was VERY reluctant to pick up another version! The main reason I waited for a reissue on Blu-ray was that the picture quality of the original Blu-ray release wasn't considered great. The only bad thing I can say about this release is apparently it's not the correct aspect ratio (it's been cropped a bit to fit the screen for 16x9) and one of the much more notable improvements they digitally removed the stick that was attached to the 'flying eyeball' scene. That's a thumbs up from me and maybe a thumbs down from hardcore purists. But hey, Spielberg took out the reflection from the glass pane separating Indy from the snake in Raiders on the recent Blu-Ray release and most people didn't seem to care!

Aside from a bunch of lengthy special feature footage in HD (interviews and film clips are HD but all the other behind the scenes stuff is transferred from VHS tape) my one requirement for purchasing this movie again was that it had to have the commentary with Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, Scott Spiegel and Greg Nicotero. This commentary is probably my all-time favourite commentary of any film ever because it takes the MST3K riffing approach to making fun of it's own movie and it's HILARIOUS. I should also add that the picture quality is impressive and the sound is great too. An excellent package for Evil Dead heads.

Now bring on a director's cut of Army of Darkness akin to what MGM released in China only in HD and I'll die happy.

This sequel to the cult classic film, Evil Dead, is the next installment into, what is praised to be, one of the goriest black comedy horror films to ever hit the film circuit. This film glorifies the very campy fun and essence of your typical B-movie plot, with a side of exaggerated amounts of cartoony violence and blood. Ash takes his girlfriend to a deserted cabin for a splendid weekend together of romance, but everything goes spiralling down into a blaze of horror as Ash idiotically finds a tape recording of a reading of, what is refered to as, "The Book of the Dead." From here on, this is when the film picks up and the girlfriend goes missing after 'something in the woods' smashes through her window. The origin of the book is narrated in the first 2 minutes, and it almost takes and additional 3 minutes for the girlfriend to go missing. For the rest of the film, Ash battles the forces of evil that reincarnate themselves into everything, from huge trees to even small books. The film is hilarious, with its 'splatstick' humor that pays homage to the likes of The Three Stooges. The pop up scares are impeccable and are always right on target with their build ups. This is a fast, fierce, scary, and most of all, incredibly good humored work by Sam Raimi. I highly recommend this film to horror fans who love a good scare, but at the same time, don't mind laughing at the same time as they're doing so.

Evil Dead 2 is one of the greatest horror films I've ever seen, and definitely the greatest horror-comedy I know of (yes, even better than Shawn of the Dead, which was fantastic). This remake/sequel retells the first one briefly, with some changes: Ash and his girlfriend (instead of his four friends) find the cabin, accidentally awaken the evil of the Book of the Dead, and Ash ends up single and burying his now-headless demon-possessed girlfriend. After that, Ash goes through a great ordeal of horrific (but funny) events that quickly drive him insane, like a possessed hand that beats him to a pulp, or a laugh-o-thon with the furniture, or a memorable chase scene through the cabin that rivals the chariot race in Ben-Hur (No, not really). After that, more people show up, and things only get more hectic for poor, groovy Ash.
All in all, this was fun to watch back-to-back with The Evil Dead, which both arrived on the same day, and in perfect condition. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and I highly recommend this (and the entire trilogy for that matter) to any horror fan.
Just watch out for possessed cameras.

Well, we've got a comedy here my friends. Lotsa people like to throw around the term horror-comedy when describing this, but I don't think that's quite appropriate. While it uses a horror setting, it virtually never seems to be trying to work on a horror movie level, so I'm not really comfortable using the term horror in the description. On the other hand, calling it a spoof or parody doesn't really decribe it either, as too much of the humor seems to be unrelated to the horror setting. But, all that aside this is a pretty funny movie, and a rather 'cool' movie as well, for lack of a better term.
Unlike everyone else in the world, this is not my favorite of the series. In fact, it's my least favorite. However, it still stands up quite well, and is definitely worth your time. Despite the fact that it shares the setting of the original, this one has far more in common with Army of Darkness then the original, as it focuses on fast-moving and ridiculous comedic setups. It's largely a means for Campbell to do physical comedy and ham it up amusingly, and showcase lots of intentionally dated, but still cool special effects. Sadly, Ash isn't quite as amusing as he'd become in the next film. He's not nearly as angry/surly as he'd become, which I always thought was more important to humor of the film than the physical comedy. But he's still pretty damn amusing. Raimi's visual flair is as good here as ever. The 'force' shots are much improved from the already superb ones in the original. The famed scene of it endlessly chasing Ash around the cabin is especially noteworthy. He also does some nice stuff with the sky as well, particuarly a great shot of Ash in front of a ridiculously enormous sun.
