Starring: Bruce Campbell, Sarah Berry, Dan Hicks
Evil Dead 2 is a comedic take on a lone survivor (the estimable Bruce Campbell) and a group of strangers who fight the undead released after reading the Necronomicon (aka “Book of the Dead”). A parody sequel to director Sam Raimi’s original feature Evil Dead (when does THAT ever happen?) this version heavily features the handsome hero Ash who must fight squirly, soaring and scary demons as well as his very own hand and a flying eyeball. Cue the chainsaw and shotgun accessories. One of the best!
