U.S., 1987, 84 min, 4K DCP, Dir. Sam Raimi, Rated R, Rialto Pictures
"Just when things start getting too grisly, Raimi rushes in with a hilarious, sendup joke to remind us that all this blood and guts is meant in spooky Grand Guignol fun." —Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
Director Sam Raimi’s high-energy 1987 horror flick Evil Dead 2 looks stunning in this 4K restoration. Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) only wanted romantic vibes when he took his girlfriend Linda (Denise Bixler) to a secluded cabin in the woods. But the vibes turn downright evil after Ash accidentally reads from the Book of the Dead and summons spirits that possesses Linda and relentlessly pursue him. Equal parts remake and sequel, Evil Dead 2 is a prime example of how to mix genuine laughs with shocking gore
