Evil Dead 2
1987 / d. Sam Raimi
Essentially a remake of the first film, but this time brimming with nonstop tongue-in-cheek (or more accurately eyeball-in-mouth) and slapstick humour. Bruce Campbell reprises his role as Ash, hamming it up to the max with an over-the-top performance that never fails to put a smile on my face. Director Sam Raimi pulled no punches and managed to crank the gore-dial even higher, offering enough arterial spray and flesh trauma to satisfy any gore connoisseur.
