Okay, NOW I get it. Evil Dead was good, super gory, but seeing it so late in the game I struggled to see what gives it the clout it has today. Then I watched this one right after, and now I totally get it. This is hilarious, Bruce is a true badass, its gory, insane, and ridiculous. Hoping this awesome continues with Army of Darkness.

Not as inventive with the fights as the first movie. Camerawork still good but not as good. The kills aren't dragged out and milked as much, and I missed that. The original had tension between kills and this is just a waiting game between kills. I didn't find it hilarious but I did enjoy the comic humour. Not really into the cheesy lines but they don't hurt. Still worth a watch if you enjoyed the first. Many prefer this one.
