Part 1 – Spoiler Free Quickie Review
Hilarious over the top demon movie from the 80s. That pretty much the tag line. Buckets of blood squirting out of random orifices, holes, and assorted objects, stupid characters, and hilarity all around. It’s awesome. Cheesy yes, especially by todays standards but still a fun watch.
That’s pretty much my review…. if you want to watch some demon zombies possess some people, giggle hysterically, stab people with pencils, and ooze blood… go watch it. Oh yeah, and if you want to see Bruce Campbell’s unibrow, it has a starring role in this film.
I am excited about the new film, because I think the remake will be able to take some elements of this movie and make them 100x times creepier…. but, I still hope that there will be epic amounts of blood… because I’m a sick human being and I like that kind of stuff.
Part 2 – In Depth Spoiler Ridden Review
There’s a synopsis here.
Tree Rape. Girls possessed. Everyone dies. The end. That’s my synopsis.
The tree rape though… hilarious. I understand the whole “Angry Molesting Tree” in Cabin in the Woods now…. That was really the most I got out of the movie other than laughing my ass off at the stupidity of the characters and the insane amounts of blood. Love it though.
