Firstly, I've got to say your site and your reviewing style has me in stitches.  I used to frequent your site because one of my friends who is into B-movies said you were good; I wasn't into them at all.  Now thanks to your site, I have seen around twenty and own a good ten classics.  The likes of 'Reefer Madness' and Ed Wood's 'Bride of the Monster' have been a joy (with the help of a lot of liquor and a couple of mates).  So, yes.  Thanks for that.

Secondly, I guess a comment on this film would be appropriate.  I loved it; I think it is one of the funniest zombie flicks out there (and that is including the recent British-made spoof 'Shaun Of The Dead' that borrows liberally from it and various others).  Would wonder what you thought about that if you've had the chance to see it?  Bruce Campbell as Ash sawing limbs off, being goaded by his possessed hand, and the one-liner.  Myself and my friends cry with laughter and rewind the tape at 'groovy'.  Every.  Single.  Time.

I'm guessing you are overseas at the moment, so looking forward to when you come back and update the site with some more reviews.

This is the Citizen Kane of b-movie horror.   This is the movie that put Sam Raimi (and Bruce Campbell) on the map.

One of the best cheesy movies ever!  Even I (The Almighty Cthulhu) enjoyed it immensly.  The best part has got to be the evil deer head.  Cheese at it's finest.

Sorry to bring up an old review, but I just watched this and was dismayed to find that nobody brought up the best part ever.  Maybe it's the best part out of any other movie.

This one went more to the humorous side of it. He realized it was a little cheesy and made it purposely insane. lol.
It most certainly worked. Entertaining with lots of laughs.

I never thought of this movie as a sequel, but more of a reboot of the original Evil Dead (1981). I especially enjoyed the scenes involving Ash's possessed and severed hand, though I always wondered what happened to it after it crawled into the wall. This scene bothered me for years after seeing it, because Sam Raimi deliberately left it up to our imaginations; the true sign of a classic film!

My theory eventually rested on the idea that the hand became a separate living undead entity upon severance from Ash's body, that Ash did indeed shoot it through the wall with the shotgun, then as the hand died from its massive injuries, its newly disembodied soul became a part of the possessed cabin, became angry at Ash for killing it, thus spewing loads of blood out of the walls and all over Ash, before possessing the furniture and the infamous "laughing deer" on the wall. It did this because it knew that the other visitors were soon to arrive, and intentionally drove Ash temporarily insane so that he would start blasting his shotgun at the first sign of trouble, in the hopes of Ash inadvertently taking out whomever tried to step in the front door, as what almost happened in the next scene.

Only truly great films allow the viewer to add so much depth to such an already complex and complicated, intricate plot in such a highly dramatic, philosophical cinematic piece as this glorious gem of a Hollywood classic!  TeddyR
