Fright-Rags are celebrating the 30th anniversaries of both Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop and Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead 2, with new merchandise dedicated to these 80s cult classics.
In 1981, Sam Raimi’s ultimate low-budget experience in grueling horror was released onto the unsuspecting public.
Controversial for it’s extremely graphic violence Raimi’s feature length debut was initially turned down by almost all U.S. Film distributors. When the movie was finally picked up by Irvin Shapiro in 1982 and given a foreign release, followed by a domestic release shortly afterwards, it was savaged by the hands of the censors and was even banned outright in certain countries…
“The ultimate experience in grueling terror.”
Call it a sequel, call it a re-make, call it a stand-alone film, call it whatever you like but Evil Dead II is still one of the daddies of the horror genre. A culmination of raw talent, smart ideas, excellent execution and Ash, Evil Dead II is the business.
Our hero Ash returns, or continues (or whatever) his duel with the Candarian demons or deadites, in the follow-up to Sam Raimi’s classic The Evil Dead. Surviving the first night against the forces of evil, can Ash survive again and stop these horrors from hell?
“Kiss your nerves good-bye!”
Ash is back and is ready to hand out some boomstick punishment in the third of the Evil Dead trilogy.
Following a harrowing night of demonic possession in Evil Dead II, unassuming store clerk Ash is time-warped into England’s Dark Ages, where he must find the Necronomicon, a compendium of the black arts, before he can return home. Fortunately, he has time to romance a beautiful princess, tune up his chainsaw hand, and battle an army of skeletons led by himself.
