Cost: Free
A survivor of an onslaught of flesh-possessing spirits stays in a cabin with strangers while the demons continue attacking.

USA | 84 min | R | HD Projection | Dir. Sam Raimi

The lone survivor of an onslaught of flesh-possessing spirits holds up in a cabin with a group of strangers while the demons continue their attack. (IMDB)

"'Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn' is a comedy disguised as a blood-soaked shock-a-rama. It looks superficially like a routine horror movie, a vomitorium designed to separate callow teenagers from their lunch. But look a little closer and you'll realize that the movie is a fairly sophisticated satire. Level One viewers will say it's in bad taste. Level Two folks like myself will perceive that it is about bad taste." - Roger Ebert
