director Sam Raimi
I had tried to show the kids Evil Dead II a couple of years back, laughing about how funny it is, but I guess, unsurprisingly all they saw was the scares and gore. We abandoned the attempt partway through.
This time, they chose it and enjoyed it, though found the horror elements as significant as the comedy. Though this time they did appreciate it too.
I think the movie is brilliant. I had just rewatched the original The Evil Dead (1981) on my own last year. I love all the weirdo POV camerawork. Anthropomorphized POV camerawork to the extreme. And Bruce Campbell – do they give lifetime achievement awards for one role?
