I am somewhat pissed that once again I don’t have the extended cut but regardless…

Director:  Sam Raimi

Starring:  Bruce Campbell, and Embeth Davidtz

Writers:  Sam Raimi, and Ivan Raimi

Producers:  Robert Tapert, and Bruce Campbell

Studios:  Dino De Laurentiis Communications, and Renaissance Pictures

Distributor:  Universal Studios

Run Time:  1 hr 21 min (81 minutes)

Like a number of the better films reviewed, this movie had great atmosphere created by the awesome special effects, lighting, and camera work.  The Deadites in this film looked amazing due to the makeup work of Tony Gardner and company.  Bruce Campbell was definitely the star of this one as his body language and facial expressions turned this live action movie into a living breathing cartoon.  I also loved how so many of the actors sold by doing moonsaults or other flippy do bumps.  If you want horror, watch the first two Evil Dead.  If you want over-the-top adventure, with remarkable monsters, this motion picture is for you.

**** 1/4
