We all have a movie that we annoy those around us with by quoting lines, acting out scenes, what have you, from said movie. For me, it’s the Evil Dead Series. My shotgun will always be referred to as my boomstick. I will always shop smart at S-mart.
Evil Dead II is one of, if not THE, best horror/comedies ever put out by Sam Raimi. The camera angles are awesome. He’s got little Easter eggs throughout the movie …for example: when Ash goes into the cellar to kill the witch, if you look closely you will see Freddy Krugger’s glove. Why??? Well…in Nightmare on Elm Street, in Johnny Depp’s bedroom, there is a movie poster for the first Evil Dead movie. Are they related? I don’t know, but I still think its pretty cool.
You’ve got my all time favorite actor – Bruce Campbell – doing what he does best…kicking ass.
Ash & his girlfriend, Linda, take a drive into the country for a nice relaxing romantic weekend. Ash unleashes Deadites by listening to a tape in the cabin. They take his girlfriend, drive him crazy and he does his best to rid the cabin & surrounding forest of them.
But…they take his HAND!!!!!
AND HE CHOPS IT OFF WITH A CHAINSAW!!!!!! How friggin bad-ass is THAT?!?!
Its pretty fucking groovy, I can tell you that much.
