Evil Dead 2
Director Sam Raimi's horror/comedy cult classic gets the deluxe Blu-ray treatment. The incomparable Bruce Campbell stars as Ash, the lone survivor of the original film's flesh-eating spirit attack, who retreats to the woods with his girlfriend, Linda. There, Ash plays her a recording of a professor's readings from the Book of the Dead. The spell unleashes an evil force to take over Linda's body and turns her into a monstrous Deadite, threatening to do the same to Ash. The evening unravels into a gory and comic battle with a chainsaw, a shotgun and a flying eyeball.
