JWM SPOOKATHON 2018: Evil Dead II (1987)

evil_dead_ii_xlg

The lone survivor of an onslaught of flesh-possessing spirits holes up in a cabin with a group of strangers while the demons continue their attack. (IMDb)
The fact that it has “II” in the title and people still confuse it for a remake of the first one shows how poorly it connects to it and how much it mirrors its plot. Still, this is a great horror flick that somehow manages to amp up the ridiculous gore of its predecessor while also adding lots of delightful absurdist horror-comedy that always keeps you on your toes and thoroughly entertained (see the possessed hand bit, laughing home decor). One-liner-spouting Ash is glistening and great.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
