‘Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn’ was an extra-special treat

Evil Dead II 600x369

Brandon Peters has returned! Leading up to the April 5th release date of the new Evil Dead remake, Mr. Peters will be doing his voodoo with the Evil Dead series. He continues with a look at Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn. As only a casual Evil Dead fan, this was an extra-special treat as this isn’t a film series that I’ve memorized by heart. This was as informative for me as I hope it will be for you. So without further ado…

Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn
1987
Director: Sam Raimi

The second installment of the Evil Dead trilogy is the bridge between the first film and Army of Darkness in terms of tone. Whereas the first film was a straight horror film, the 2nd adds a level of humor while still able to maintain jumps, scares and intensity. This film is definitely one of the earlier and most notable films in the splatstic sub-genre of horror. The film also serves as pretty much a big budget remake of the first film.
