  • Much of the movie's charm, in fact, is derived from its sense of its own instant disposability. Raimi has created the cinematic equivalent of fast food-efficient, unassuming and seriously regressive. It may not be much good for you in the end, but consuming it is loads of fun. [19 Feb 1993, Friday, p.C]

  • The movie isn't as funny or entertaining as "Evil Dead II," however, maybe because the comic approach seems recycled. show more

  • No matter what your opinion is of the movie, you're unlikely to be bored. show more
