A discussion of cult films by two guys located in a basement somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Matt holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics, and works as an aerospace engineer. Mark holds a B.S. in biochemistry and works as a research technician... both are graduates of Snohomish High School Class of 91/92 respectiviely, none of which qualifies them to discuss film in any meaningful way... so... "caveat emptor" and all that.

043 Evil Dead 2 by Sam Raimi
You're going down. This week we review the horror-comedy classic Evil Dead 2 by Sam Raimi, starring B-movie titan Bruce Campbell. Having seen the first Evil Dead, Mark fills Matt in on the complex back story of the original, without which, the viewer would be much like the protagonist Ash, merely a babe in the wickedly malevolent woods. Like an 80 minute live action Robot-Chicken episode, Evil Dead 2 is a late night stoner's paradise of gore, slapstick, and absurdity, a cult classic if there ever was one.
