What can I say about Evil Dead II? It is a technical and creative marvel, a film that seems to burst at the seams with energy and enthousiasm. Evil Dead II jumps right in the action as two crazy kids stop by at a cabin for some crazy times, and are met with some ancient evil that turns one of them into an unkilleable zombie thing. Hands get infected, furniture has a sense of humour, and shit flies into many people’s mouths. I wish I had the skills to explain why this is so incredible, the sophistication of Raimi’s artistry and comedy, and how beautifully each scene never takes the easy route, and is filled with narrative and visual splendour. It is a film I cannot recommend enough.
