"Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn"

A remake of the original that shows how far the gang has come. Bruce reprises his role as Ash who now knows how to handle the Evil Dead...but I think he's still a coward at heart.

There's lots of gems in this one: the "Laughing Room", Jake the hick, the "blood flood" (or was that in the first?) and many, many more.

I was impressed by the scene in which Ash's hand is possessed and tries to kill him. Bruce did a phenomenal job which I'm sure left him banged up and bruised--breaking plates over his own head, the self-induced back-flip and, my favorite, dragging his own unconscious body across the floor with the possessed hand.
