The original is probably one of the ten most influential horror movies of all-time. Evil Dead 2 was better than the original, mostly because the budget was much higher due to the success of the first. Army of Darkness was the third movie in the series. All starred the great Bruce Campbell as Ash. You must see them, but keep in mind that the original was filmed in the 80s on a low budget.
I'm going to see the remake as soon as my friend gets out of the hospital for his birthday. I can't wait because it's made by the original filmmakers. If it wasn't, I'd probably balk at going to the theater and paying those prices to see it.
