THE EVIL DEAD - 2 Slimes
Rated R
Copyright 1982 Renaissance Pictures.
Reviewed by Andrew Borntreger on 'a long time ago'

The Characters:  

  • Ash - Our hero, a little more on the chubby and pansy side than I'd like.
  • Linda - Ash's girlfriend, possessed by the evil spirits and damn annoying with that laugh.
  • Scott - Your standard blonde leader guy, he gets shrubbed to death trying to escape.
  • Shelly - Scott's woman who gets possessed of course. He chops her up with an ax.
  • Cheryl - Artsy-fartsy girl, she gets raped by a tree. I did not think it up, do not yell at me...
  • The Evil Dead - Demons summoned using the Book of the Dead.

Buy It!

The Plot: 

Overall okay. That's my assessment. Overall okay. Well, you're going to find it a little slow at times but there are a couple of really amusing parts. Especially Scott chopping up his possessed girlfriend as she screams, "No! No! You love her!" How do we arrive at such debauchery you may ask? Heart of the matter is that these kids rent a cabin where some professor had been translating the Book of the Dead. When they play the tape recording of his work it summons the evil spirits, who immediately begin causing havoc. Not only do trees (yes, trees) rape Cheryl, but Linda turns into this giggling pasty face thing. Ash burns the book to dispel the demons, and everything seems fine, we last see him screaming as something rushes out of the forest. Personally I think he was royally screwed. Though you might find this film tepid at best there is solace in the two sequals: Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn and Army of Darkness.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • Before renting a cabin in the middle of nowhere you should look it over.
  • If cellar doors just pop open one should lock them and forget anything happened.
  • Ancient demonic texts written in human blood look alot like ballpoint.
  • Trees can rape women.
  • Evil spirit movies always have some strange dagger hanging around.
  • It's not difficult to chop up the woman you love.
  • Don't smack the dying guy.
  • Possessed people are just full of body fluids - blood, vomit, etc...

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 6 mins - None of you idiots are worried that porch swing is banging against the house when there is no wind?
  • 15 mins - Shit! Scotty, I am going to kick your ass!
  • 24 mins - Man, that moon is huge! It's going to crash into the Earth! Run! Run!
  • 27 mins - Cheryl getting violated by a tree?
  • 38 mins - Pencil through the ankle, ouch!
  • 55 mins - Just shoot the possessed thing.
  • 62 mins - Yes! Chop her up! No, don't get all mushy about it...
  • 76 mins - This scene has gone on long enough, something grab him through the door. We know it's coming.

Scott chops up Shelly, at least the body her soul used to inhabit before things got out of hand. Just oogle as he dismembers his girlfriend with a very dull axe, it is amazing what you can make up for in sharpness with weight. I wonder if Raimi had some issues with an old girlfriend by this name?

I first saw Evil Dead when I was like 8 i'm 19 now and its still as good as the first time i saw it. Sam Raimi changed Horror movies with ED nothing about the trilogy is bad but they do get a little on the comedy side not there is anything wrong with that but HEY! give'em some cred they had a limited budget but i wouldnt have it any other way.pencil through ankle ouch! raped by tree Hhhhmmmmm!  The Hills Have Eyes ha!

Classic movie but Campbell is not as funny as in Evil Dead II and AOD. Still, the violence is cool and some blackc omedy makes a delicious Evil Dead. Though we do not see the ghost, the film is very creepy. And the violence, well call it dirty, amusing or gross, it is brilliant. Can't believe how Raimi got selected to make Spiderman which was so subdued in violence. Still, this is one of Raimi's GROSSLY UNDER-RATED Classics. Cheryl being raped by a tree was quite weird for me. But it was rather humorous at times. Linda's 'We are gonna get you' is quite funny.

B-Movies are quite good. This is certainly the better horror film than the crap served nowadays(except The Hills have Eyes and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake).
Evil Dead pioneered the comedy horror series before Scream gave it a new dimension.

I bought the VHS version the other day and I love the movie.  One thing I don't understand, there were broken windows that anything could walk thru, so why is Ash looking the doors?  Just a thought.....

Take care B-movie fans....

Uh, there's been comedy-horrors for decades prior to Evil Dead. I think they may actually go as far back as the silent film era. Therefore, Evil Dead didn't "pioneer" it.

"Bubba Ho Tep."

Bruce is an Elvis impersonator facing a Mummy in a nursing home.

I think that almost beats rape by trees.

I've yet to see the first Evil Dead.

I've got Evil Dead 2 on dvd, and have seen Army of Darkness.

A CLASSIC OLD FASION HORROR

This is one of my favourite classic horror movies.

I love it! It made me jump and laugh at the same time.

Me and my dad were laughing our heads of when the lady got rapped by a tree.

This is a defiantly must see flick.

Everyone will love it except for people who don't have any sense humour at all.

I give it  Twirling Twirling BounceGiggle BounceGiggle hot out of  Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
