Even more evil, even more deader. This film to me feels like I remake but I had to look it up and I guess it is supposed to be a sequel. Still, I found this to be not as good as the original. Sure, it has better effects and by God Sam Raimi does great camera work and effects. I just didn’t like this one as much for some reason. Maybe it was the extra characters with Bruce Campbell… Still, there are a lot of crazy parts and you can tell a ton of effects work went into this film. I especially love when Ash (Campbell) tells the creature that’s shouting “I’ll swallow your soul” and he pulls out his shotgun and yells “swallow this”. It’s lines like this that make the movie memorable and fun. Sure the acting is pretty B-Movie but you’ll have a good time with this is you like gore and possession movies. Like I said, it feels like a remake and even though it seems to have a bigger budget, it’s too much of the same to be better than the original.
