Product description

Product Description

In this sequel to 'The Evil Dead', a young couple chance upon the same remote Tennessee cabin as in the original, unleashing the forces of evil with horrific consequences for themselves and their friends. The only survivor, Ash (Bruce Campbell, who also starred in the first film), deranged after having to dismember his possessed, dead girlfriend, fights back with a chainsaw.

From Amazon.co.uk

Writer-director Sam Raimi's extremely stylized, blood-soaked follow-up to his creepy Evil Dead isn't really a sequel; rather, it's a remake on a better budget. It also isn't really a horror film (though there are plenty of decapitations, zombies, supernatural demons, and gore) as much as it is a hilarious, sophisticated slapstick send-up of the terror genre. Raimi takes every horror convention that exists and exaggerates it with mind-blowing special effects, crossed with mocking Three Stooges humour. The plot alone is a genre cliché right out of any number of horror films. Several teens (including our hero, Ash, played by Bruce Campbell in a manic tour-de-force of physical comedy) visit a broken-down cottage in the woods--miles from civilization--find a copy of the Book of the Dead, and unleash supernatural powers that gut every character in sight. All, that is, except Ash, who takes this very personally and spends much of the of the film getting his head smashed while battling the unseen forces. Raimi uses this bare-bones story as a stage to showcase dazzling special effects and eye-popping visuals, including some of the most spectacular point-of-view Steadicam work ever (done by Peter Deming). Although it went unnoticed in the cinemas, the film has since become an influential cult-video favourite, paving the way for over-the-top comic gross-out films like Peter Jackson's Dead Alive.--Dave McCoy --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Lets clear something up to begin with.. This is definitely a sequel to The Evil Dead (1981) and not a remake. There are many miss-conceptions about this. The initial opening 5-10 is in fact a recap. Due to copy right reasons Sam Raimi et al were unable to use footage from the original movie, so instead they remade elements of the original film which would be relevant to Evil Dead 2. However, due to the way the movie us edited, it does give an impression of a remake. Anyway..
I purchased this movie on Blue-Ray (after owning all three movies on VHS and DVD previously) and the first thing I noticed was that it is no longer classed as an 18 certificate. I was concerned that the Blue-Ray edition may been heavily edited. Rest assured, this is not the case. The film appears in all its gory glory ( I guess it isn't considered as nasty as it once was). While still being violent and bloody like the original, the action is more comical. But throw in the numerous one liners, and you're in for an enjoyable ride. Criticisms about the film itself; While I do love this movie, it does start to lose steam after about 45mins in. The middle is dragged out a bit, but its worth it once you get to the epic show down against the "The Witch" in cellar. As for the Blue-Ray and extras; I was hoping for more. The HD isn't really noticeable. There is no more picture clarity than you get on the DVD version and there are no additional extras to what you get on the DVD either. I was really hoping for at least some deleted scenes (I know there are many out there on the internet, go ahead, have a search), but alas, nothing. But to round up, it's still a top film. After all, it stars Bruce Campbell.

Not a lot more to say about the zero budget original movie that hasn't already been said,other than if you are one of the few who hasn't here's your chance to compare it to the recent remake.

It's perhaps easy to forget in this era of post-modern cinematic irony, that there was a time not so long ago when all you needed to make a horror movie was style, wit, vision, an unrelenting determination to create the most enjoyable experience possible, and about 500 gallons of stage blood. After their low budget success with Evil Dead which we all rushed to see before it got banned back in the early eighties, Raimi, Tapert, Campbell et al, fuelled by some extra cash from Dino De Laurentiis, managed to put together one of the best made, energetically crafted, stupid-but-fun films of all time. Now nearly fifteen years old, time had diminished its vitality not a jot. And now its available in all its uncut glory on DVD. The commentary from Raimi, Campbell, Scott Spiegel and Greg Nicotero is frequently very amusing, points out several things I had never noticed before (but now I'll never be able to ignore them), and is a more than pleasant way to while away 80 minutes. Also included is a 'Making of' featurette which lasts about 30 minutes and deals with little more than how various special effects were achieved. Where this extra comes into its own, however, is in the tiny additional film made by the special effects boys in their lunch hour. 'Evil Dead Baby', tacked onto the end of the documentary, is a tiny hilarious take on ReAnimator and well worth fast forwarding to the end of the featurette for.

This has to be my favorite horror movies of all time as it has the perfect combination of scare's, good special effects, comedy and acting from Bruce Campbell. My only regret is not purchasing it on blue ray, but still great value for what I payed for it.

By E. A. Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 Mar. 2016
Format: Blu-ray
Sam Raimi's "The Evil Dead" became a massive cult hit almost immediately -- but not entirely for the reasons he had hoped. Yes, some parts of it are scary, but it's also hilariously over-the-top.

So when it was time to give the world "Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn," Raimi decided to embrace the joke. Sure, it still has some horrific moments (possessed lady in the basement! Ash stuck down there with her!), but the movie is now being deliberately over-the-top for the sheer joy of it -- fountains of gore, quotable lines, chainsaw hands and laughing deer heads. And of course, Bruce Campbell has completely graduated into his memelike status here, as a demon-slaying mass of manly awesomeness.

It begins with a heavily abridged retelling of the first movie, where Ash (Campbell) and his girlfriend Linda (Denise Bixler) take a romantic vacation in a rickety old cabin, but stumble across a weird old tape recorder and the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis (aka, Book of the Dead). An evil force possesses Linda, and Ash is forced to behead her with a shovel. Got it? Onto the story!

After being possessed for a grand total of six seconds, Ash finds himself trapped in the haunted cabin, with no way of getting back to civilization. He's slowly driven insane by demonic hallucinations, and the undead Linda reassembles her very-rapidly-decayed body so she can attack Ash once more. This time, she bites his hand and possesses it, forcing Ash to take very extreme measures to protect himself. Think a chainsaw. Used for amputation.

Meanwhile, ANOTHER quartet of disposable individuals are approaching the cabin, led by Annie (Sarah Berry), whose father left behind the tapes on the Necronomicon.
