U.S., 1987, 84 min, 35mm, Dir. Sam Raimi, Rated R for violence, gore and frightening scenes
"A flashy good-natured display of special effects and scare tactics so extreme they can only be taken for laughs." - Variety
Join us for Director Sam Raimi’s high-energy 1987 horror flick Evil Dead 2 on 35mm presented by Gables Cinema and the Secret Celluloid Society during our midnight After Hours series. Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) takes his girlfriend Linda for a romantic visit to a secluded cabin in the woods owned by Professor Knowby. Ash plays a tape recording of the Professor reciting passages from the Book of the Dead and accidentally summons fourth evil spirits that turn Linda into a zombie. And, of course, the evil does not stop there . . . Ash is relentlessly pursued and when the Professor’s daughter and her friends arrive, a true gore-fest ensues! With a 98% Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the Los Angeles Times writes, “Just when things start getting too grisly, Raimi rushes in with a hilarious, sendup joke to remind us that all this blood and guts is meant in spooky Grand Guignol fun.”
