Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead 2 is the sequel nobody expected. After the inconclusive, but genuinely implicative ending of The Evil Dead, the general conclusion was that Ash Williams was a bloody body in the leaves. However, Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn breathes not only fresh life into Ashley, but also a well-needed touch of comedy. Bruce Campbell is brilliant at the amusing and serious portrayals of Ash scattered throughout the film. After being bitten, kicked and thrown into a world of hellish violence and terror, he makes no bones about the sensitive issue of dismembering his possessed hand and replacing it with a chainsaw, and delivers the gore in delicious portions and hilarious comic moments, such as his hands constant attempts to end him.
As we all could have guessed, the Evil Dead are not quite thwarted yet, and have come back for another night of blood, demons, wickedness, shotguns and flying eyeballs.
Today, one of our favorite YouTubers, Oliver Harper, has released yet another epic retrospective – looking back at this cult classic splatter comedy. Check out some insightful commentary, little known facts, behind-the-scenes footage and many other things any Dead fan should enjoy immensely.
