Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn ★★½ 1987 (R)

A gory, tongue-in-cheek sequel/remake of the original festival of gag and gore, in which an ancient book of magic invokes a crowd of flesh-snacking, joke-tossing ghouls. Followed by yet a third bloodfest. 84m/C VHS, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD . Bruce Campbell, Sarah Berry, Dan Hicks, Kassie Wesley, Theodore (Ted) Raimi, Denise Bixler, Richard Domeier, Scott Spiegel, Josh Becker, Lou Hancock; Cameos: Sam Raimi; D: Sam Raimi; W: Sam Raimi, Scott Spiegel; C: Peter Deming; M: Joseph LoDuca.
