Sweet movie and a great improvement over your last one. The voices taken from the movie were a really cool touch, and I've yet to figure out how to do that myself.

I thought that this was much better than the first Evil Dead. Cool VO's and a more interesting story. I am keen to see the next one! Please also check out my movie "The Lurking Terror" (shameless plug).

Pretty good...but what's with those voice overs? did you get them off the movie? (I've never seen any "Evil Dead" films, There's something a bit weird going on but still manage to work it out fine...are ya gonna make an "Army of Darkness"? (never mind)

Just like Raimi did with the original Evil Dead. You also improved on your second effort. Awesome!!

As a massive fan of the original, I think you have done a lovely job : the backgrounds for the cabin are brilliant... should be amusing to see the sequel...

I loved the first one and I loved this one.But my question is how are you going to do The Army Of Darkness.I mean the whole movie is with him and his shot gun and chainsaw arm.But tis movie is awsome.

Awesome. better than the first and a great addition to the genre.

Well, from what I can do, almost every film is worth 5 stars, so I'll have to take other films I've seen here already into account.

My pros :
- Very nice editing
- Really, I mean VERY VERY NICE editing :)

My cons :
- Zombies at daylight ?
- Almost no sound
- I didn't understand the story : Where is Linda ?

All together I give 3 stars for this film, with some more detailed story and some background music I'll give you 5 start for the third part :)

Nice little homage
liked the way you included some of Bruce Campells voice, if you did that all the way trough it would be real cool.
Editing was smooth, choice of footage was well planned.
Sound: besides the voice, little added, could have benifited from a better soundtrack with more atmos sounds.
Story: wont comment,its a homage as I said..

Conclusion. A good little flick, part of a series, but on its own this is a decent 3/5*

Reminds me of the real second ED in a lot of ways, which is a good thing. Great work

A few inconsistencies, and I'm 99% sure that the soundclips you used could get your movie removed, but I won't tell if you won't ;) For those not familiar with the original, it's a little hard to follow. I'd love to see any original stuff you might come up with, even if it's heavily inspired by Evil Dead :)

Well made movie, but I was hoping for something more original.

Posted on November 17, 2005
- NicotineHell

Ok, usually I'm happy to a second movie from a director, since they almost always improve with each film. You didn't improve..in fact, you made it worse. The movie is not original in any shape or form, you used clips from the original movie, and frankly, the editing is too loose to keep up with near the end.

HOWEVER

You did get one scene right. The scene at the absolute end, where you see the cabin, now that looked like the same cabin, the same angle, and the same dark and moody lighting, that Evil Dead used. Still, I want to state this again, there is NO REASON to be remaking films, that do not need remakes.

Make somthing original, and you'll get 3 stars from me, but in that process, try to make characters that aren't clones from other movies or what have you.

Better than the first. Huge Bruce fan and you have done a great job in making both of these very entertaining.Not sure if they have the sets for it but maybe you could do a S-Mart setting with a deadite attack. Thanks again for the great movies.

Wouldn't mind some music, but otherwise it was better than your first. Good job

Ah Great work with the scene setup and bringing your characters closer together. It was good overall.

An overall enjoyable movie that had a nice creepy vibe too it, also showed definant improvment over the first. However, a few things prevent it from getting 5 stars.

1: The mumbling caused the dialog to seem off in which the male was talking when the female was mumbling

2: The dialog sounds from the movie served both for and agaisnt its favor. It did make it seem a bit more like a real horror movie, however because only a third of the dialog has those voices, it makes it seem to inconsistant.

Stil, an overall well done movie and I am sure you can make some pretty damn cool horror movies if you keep this up.

Good movie, a lot like the first one? And I was a little lost on some Voice over and some not? not sure why...but the series looks good. And I'd watch the next one if there was one...

- no music
- mixed voice and text
- some scenes might be cutted

+ funny happening finding linda

Better than the first version. Add some music and edit the sound better and we have a winner.

Great but what is about "to be continued" ind the first part?

Posted on November 16, 2005
- chaotix66

In my opionion, you should of done the voice-overs yourself. You ripped only a few lines from the movie, that's not enough. You either go all the way with it or not at all. But the parts you did use, fell in nicely and edited well

Posted on November 16, 2005
- ADFI

This is better, Ash looks more of the part and ripiing the sound-bites fromk the movie was a nice touch. Still too short though, and not enough magic, but a definate improvement on the first, when is 'army of darkness coming'?

(small sad point: he says: 'now to bury HIM' but linda is a woman, as Bruce Campbell says quite clearly. sorry I'm a big Raimi man, if your gonna play with him, make the effort)

Ok, I expected a continue - not a remake but nevertheless it was well done.
(but personally I liked the first version more than this one ;))

Again, damn cool. Like the use of original movie voices.

Posted on November 16, 2005
- Jiyuujin

Somehow it was better than the previous one and at the same time, it didn't make such a difference. I liked the "voice" but they are not a merit as it's not your work (no matter how much fans can love it, i cannot count it).

That was good. I was expecting it to take off from last time.

I really enjoy the evil dead trilogy - i was surprised that you didnt use 'this is my boom stick' when he pulled out his shot gun :( it was a homeage missed to the film. It was a good effort though mate and ill check out part 3 for sure.

good work, would have liked more voice samples in it though, and preferably ones you had made yourself. This is infringing on copyrighted material hope you asked for permision ;.)

Much better! There are some faults, but the shots, the sound files (even when they're a bit loud) all make it irresistable to me. Go you, man!

A big improvement over the first part. When Ash first goes down steps, I'd be tempted to shave a second or two off the walking in cellar in post. Felt like a bit of the movie was missing there with him walking past the bottom of the steps.

Really liked it. We created those sets and scenes in the game especially for this purpose. The only things are : a. needed music and b. I fear the movie samples are too litigious for this movie to stay up for long :-(

it was good, but not really Evil Dead 2. More like the little flashback thing at the beginning of the movie. It was a remake of ur first one. You didnt include like 90% of the Evil Dead 2 movie, like, all the good stuff, but I realize you cant really cuz of the restrictions with the program, so , pretty good.

Nice update of the last one. The voices from the film gave me a good laugh, well done ;) So will the next one be Army of Darkness?

pretty good but u should add some freakier music while we're waiting for something to happen and build the atmos, i hope u do evil dead 3, we all want to see him in the graveyard messing up what hes supposed to say to get the book

It's beter than the first, but for some reason less creepier.
The voice over is a bit strange. All or nothing, I would say.
Keep it up :)

Hey I think its illegal for you to use sounds from ACTUAL MOVIES FROM Hollywood. I'm not sure if those are your voice overs but they sound like it's from a movie. It's weird how you have voice overs then subtitles. Choose one or do both at the same time. Anyways it had some plot in it, unlike other movies that I've seen in this genre. I didn't get to see your first "Evil Dead part 1" I hope the third is better.
