News & Interviews for Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn
Critic Reviews for Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn
Just when things start getting too grisly, Raimi rushes in with a hilarious, sendup joke to remind us that all this blood and guts is meant in spooky Grand Guignol fun.
Evil Dead 2 is, pardon the expression, consistently lively -- a ghoulish splatter comedy that uses wildly excessive gore to provoke the kind of shock that lies between a laugh and a scream.
Evil Dead 2's rampant inventiveness and manic energy have ensured that it will endure as a cult classic.
Good acting would not have served the material well, since it would have diluted the comedy quotient and made the campy elements seem cheap and cheesy.
A flashy good-natured display of special effects and scare tactics so extreme they can only be taken for laughs.
Audience Reviews for Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn
A very strange and gory horror, comedy. This was made quite a few years after the first but feels very similar, although the technology for the effects has greatly improved during that time, it really shows in some scenes. It has a very similar story line as well to the first, so if you liked that you should like this.
Not really a sequel but more a different remake of the first one with superior special effects and camera work, and it is definitely a lot funnier, with a more bizarre physical humor that includes a squealing possessed hand and a hysterical Bruce Campbell stealing the scene.
There are no words for how much I hate these stupid, ugly looking movies.
