Evil Dead 2
This is where Sam Raimi found a formula of comedy and testosterone that would launch the Evil Dead Series into cult stardom. To the point that there’s was a musical made of it. Evil Dead and musical seem like three words that don’t belong in the same sentence but here we are.
Ash and his girlfriend head up to a cabin in the woods to escape from it all. They come across a tape recorder that inadvertently awakens evil spirits. Later they are joined by two other couples one of which who’s father had been researching the evil that resides in the woods. Will any of them make it out alive?
It’s hard to watch this movie right after watching the first “Evil Dead” cause you’ll just find yourself asking why is this guy going back to this damn cabin again? Well the answer is Sam Raimi wanted to remake the movie now that he had a budget he could work with. And he does a great job with it. This is the film that Ash discovers himself and finds out what he’s made of. Pure Awesome.
