EVIL DEAD II: DEAD BY DAWN (1987 U.S.) D/W: SAM RAIMI W: SCOTT SPIEGEL P: ROBERT G. TAPERT
This remake/sequel is even wilder. Bruce Campbell returns to the remote cabin in the woods and we get a condensed, high-speed recap of the first movie in 10 mins! Then things really get going. Campbell cuts his own hand off with a chainsaw, and it runs around tormenting him. With corny gags and lots of black comedy slapstick (more than the original), this takes the edge off slightly, but is a great rollercoaster of a movie. There are two different endings (setting up the next entry ARMY OF DARKNESS) and both are available on recent DVD re-issues. With Raimi and his brother Ted, Josh Becker and Spiegel.
