Daryl’s review published on Letterboxd:
Few things in life are certain. But one thing that is, is that Bruce Campbell is the only man alive, or indeed dead, that could have played Ash. He delivers a tour de force, one man acting class. Portraying every emotion a human can muster, and some emotions that us mere mortals are yet to discover, he does most of these in every scene. He is phenomenal to watch.
In truth, Evil Dead is the only film series that could really have a successful Bruce Campbell lead. The exciting direction of Sam Raimi proving the perfect partner for Campbell's exciting acting. This is one of the most visually inventive, relentless and truly original films ever made.
Evil Dead 2 proves that Raimi and Campbell are gods.
It is a bonafide masterpiece of modern cinema.
