Evil Dead II - 1987 - Dir. Raimi

I seem to be spending a lot of time reminiscing with movies that impacted back in the day. Evil Dead II was definitely one of those movies. Completely bonkers, often nonsensical, violent, and hilarious. Never terrifying exactly. It works viscerally, with spinning cameras ALWAYS. Raimi loves moving cameras around. I love watching him move them around. I think I definitely noticed how friggin insane he was the way made 'em move. How unusual that way. I mean, it's still pretty iconic to this day. Campbell is still tons of fun to watch even as the man has become solidified as a cult icon. I'm not sure I really noticed anything I might've missed beforehand, but I still enjoyed watching the film after all these years. I barely remembered anything when I started but things slowly seeped back.
Ain't nothing wrong with that!
