Rae - I have to pull Andy's leg a little, I'm not really knocking all people who like "Evil Dead" - I personally thought the last one "Army of Darkness" was hilarous (not horror however).
But Andy, I appreciate your response, because your right, those movies were more comic than horror (I love Bruce Campbell!)
There have just been some movies that I felt like, if there were no gore, there would have been no movie. Several of the sequel crazy movies come to mind: Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser (I'll give you the 1st movie as being based on Clive Barker's short story - the rest were just violence), Puppet Master, etc.
Actually most of those movies were decent on the first movie, but the producers got greedy and ran out of actual ideas so just relied on blood and guts!
Ah, I'm soapboxing again, sorry.
(BTW - liked the new Amityville better than the old - more attention to detail. But I don't remember having pink hightop converses in 1975!)
