I rank them:

Evil Dead II
Evil Dead
Army of Darkness

I've never really felt like the movie dragged at the beginning. But I screened the movie once for my high school creative writing class and I felt like they were getting bored because of that first half hour or whatever. But once the movie got going they really went for it. So I can see how people would fault the movie for that. I agree with NR, it's a mood builder. It's really 70's in that way, that they have alot of dead moments like that. Texas Chainsaw Massacre is that way too, or um Race With the Devil. I think the first Evil Dead has the best atmosphere.

Evil Dead II though I think is the best though because it just has so many ideas. The severed hand, the laughing deerhead, the corpse ballet, having a chainsaw for a hand, mutant tree, ash as a deadite, Prof. Knowlby or whatever his name is showing up as a ghost, just so much more going on in that movie. The makeup is the best in the first movie though.

Army of Darkness though eh, it's fine, it's funny and stuff, but I think at this point the series moved too far away from trying to be a horror movie and tried more to be funny. Evil Dead II though was the perfect balance of comedy and horror.

 


Amazing cast but uh, not much else. The music is rather ridiculous and offsetting of the mood, the ensemble isn't really handled very well. Ingrid Bergman only has one scene really. The solution is moronic, but whatever, great cast.

Re-watched ELEVATOR MOVIE
 

 

 

 

8/10

This is one of my favorite no-budget films of all time, a true relevation! Inspiring and ... well, just read my review...
This film is amazing! I see everyone talking about Tetsuo and Eraserhead, but I see more Bunuel (specifically L'Age D'Or) and Fotopolous (Migrating Forms is very similar to this). Not that it matters... this film is truly original, not even in its concept, but more so in how it handles the subject matter. Two people in a room for 90 minutes, talking about their lives -- does that sound interesting to you? Well, it doesn't to me, to be honest, but to actually see this in execution will make you a believer.

It helps that the cast is excellent, all two of them. There is a real chemistry here, and both characters are actually charming, though flawed, and very real -- very human. Both posses a rather dry sense of humor, but I found them both quite hilarious. When one character passionately and sincerely talks about her uncle finding Jesus in his f-f-feces, the other character exclaims "Holy sh*t!" Priceless! It had me rolling.

The film is loaded with "mistakes", but these "errors" don't detract from the viewing experience; in fact, they add to the atmosphere quite a bit and make what could have been an entertaining-enough character-study, into a truly surreal, original, brilliant little film. Sometimes, the audio doesn't match the lips that are moving, sometimes scenes abruptly cut off, there is a constant flicker and "bad" lighting and "bad" framing. But I think this film is highly artistic, and it adds to the atmosphere quite a bit and makes this film highly recommendable. People who complain about its "badness" aren't schooled enough in film to realize that the editing is actually quite brilliant, the pacing is flawless, the writing is pitch-perfect - everything is clearly intentional, even the "mistakes", as randomness has a certain place too. Why would you want to watch something completely clean and complacent? This film wears its non-budget proudly... why else would the title sequence be done in paper and permanent marker (with awful handwriting)? I love this sloppy approach, it really puts this film over the top to me.

What this director does with 2 characters in one room for 90 minutes is more entertaining and thought-provoking than what your average "experimental" Tarkovsky wannabe can do with tons of characters, years of filming, and lots of "perfect" editing.

The best thing about this film really is the pacing. The director/writer doesn't forget that he is telling a story here, and so he adds little surreal touches to keep the film moving along at a good pace. He doesn't offer all his secrets up front; this film really builds, and when it gets there, it's wonderful. You'll cream the first time you hear music, after so long of there being only background hiss.

Fascinatingly gritty, strangely touching, absurdly brilliant, and somehow wonderfully realistic in its depiction of humanity, suffering, religion, and interactions between people. This is a BRILLIANT debut and one of the most exciting underground films I've ever seen... if you're a boring person, you'll be bored by this. But if you're an enlightened person, this will be your new favorite film.

HEY, derek and eugene felikson, it's freeleech week at cinemaggon.net ... you guys should download PASTORAL: TO DIE IN THE COUNTRY ... http://cinemageddon.net/details.php?id=20105


 

this is an 11/10 film; just absolutely amazing. If you want your mind to be BLOWN, then yeah.

Here is my review:
THE GREATEST FILM EVER?!

...Not sure if it's the absolute greatest, but if not, it's really, really, REALLY close to being.

Words can't describe this thing. This thing, which is pretty much "unavailable" unless you go through backdoor means, is so beautiful, so flawless, that after one viewing it immediately went up to my top 10 of all time. Never has a film blown me away so much, so quickly. Within 20 minutes, of the strange oversaturated colors, the rows of clocks, the insanely beautiful soundtrack, etc... I was just in total awe.

I literally cannot describe this film. Think "The Holy Mountain" (a lot of similar direction), a bit simplified yet more experimental (if that makes sense) -- extremely personal, kinda like the films Godard always tried to make after 1980 (a film that comments on film, a film which cannot actually be made). A director directs his childhood and then turns the film off, shockingly, and then VISITS his childhood and modifies events, tries to change things.

It's touching, personal, and the ending is actually definitely the best of all time. OVERWHELMING AND INSANE. A masterpiece!
_____________

OH HEY! They put up an upgrade of Night Train to Terror -- my favorite horror movie of all time (next to Maniac)!

 

 

Genuinely disturbing imagery... stop motion/claymation... jarring cuts... this film is pieced together from three 2 hour movies, chopped to fucking hell to be an 84 minute movie! Some of the most INSANE editing ever, the film makes no sense, it's PERFECT.

Yeah, Zombieland was fun in theaters, I can't imagine ever wanting to watch it again though, it was about as deep as a Steven Seagal film.

Oh, fuck yeah, BEAVER TRILOGY is the featured torrent on cinemageddon! That's one of my favorite movies ever, a definite 10/10. If anyone's on there and doesn't have Beaver Trilogy, you must get this movie.

Pretty fun movie. I liked all the little video game references. Might check out the comics, but right now I'm all about The Walking Dead.
