Page "Evil Dead II" Paragraph 31
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film a three star rating ( out of four ) describing it as " a fairly sophisticated satire.
" Ebert states that " if you know it's all special effects, and if you've seen a lot of other movies and have a sense of humor, you might have a great time at Evil Dead 2.
" Richard Harrington of the Washington Post wrapped up his review stating that " the acting is straight out of ' 50s B movies.
