Evil Dead II, the sequel to Evil Dead and the prequel to Army Of Darkness, is a gory, funny and over-the-top horror flick that is all-out fun for those with strong stomachs. Bruce Campbell reprises his role as Ash, with plans for a romantic weekend with his girlfriend. But, after accidentally playing an ancient incantation on a tape recorder, an evil force is awakened
Compared to the previously released, non-anamorphic DVD, the anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a darker picture; but contrast is improved. Images are generally sharp with good definition and detail, but some scenes are a bit soft. Colors are dated, but generally well balanced. Though black levels are a few shades deeper than on the previous version, true depth is wanting. Overall it is a mediocre visual experience, though a lot of what makes the picture less-than-impressive originates from the source. Fans will, nonetheless, be delighted with everything about this DVD. (Suzanne Hodges)
I read Widescreen Review to get the facts on equipment and industry news. I started reading your magazine as a consumer and found your level of education and technical detail refreshing when compared to the audio/video mass I read before.Now I run my own custom home theatre company and find your mag invaluable in keeping up with the direction this industry is going. I also give a subscription as a gift to each of my customers knowing that they will be further educated and will enjoy their equipment even more.
