Evil Dead 2

I love this movie! It's not as twisted as the first "Evil Dead" movie, and not as funny as "Army of Darkness". But this was the FIRST unrated film I ever saw in a theater. AND it let everyone in the world know who Bruce Campbell is. That, in itself, is reason enough to watch it!
For those who haven't seen it (shame on you), Bruce and his girlfriend go to a secluded cabin in the woods and accidentally release the Deadites. He must find a way to vanquish the Deadites before all hell breaks loose!
One of the better horror films of the mid-80s, "Evil Dead 2" benefits from a larger than ususal budget for a film of this type (thank you, Dino De Laurentis) and the fucked up imagination of Sam Raimi. Whether its a headless corpse dancing in the moonlight or Bruce's fight with his own hand, this is the perfect party film: bloody, funny, and always smart enough to laugh WITH the audience and not at them.
They just don't make them this good anymore...
