Celebrating its 35th Anniversary, the Film Center is thrilled to present a 4K Restoration of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead II (1987).

About the film:

The second of three films in the Evil Dead series is part horror, part comedy, with Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) once again battling horrifying demons at a secluded cabin in the woods. After discovering an audiotape left by a college professor that contains voices reading from the Book of the Dead, Ash’s girlfriend Linda (Denise Bixler) becomes possessed by evil spirits that are awakened by the voices on the tape. Ash soon discovers there is no escaping the woods.

“Evil Dead II’s rampant inventiveness and manic energy have ensured that it will endure as a cult classic.”

—Joshua Klein for the AV Club
