    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.

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