The movie starts a bit boring, but gets better as it progresses. It isn't Raimi's best, but it's good as an early effort. Although I understand that Raimi has disowned this movie since the studio took over during every aspect of production. Oh well. Live and learn is what I say. The movie does features some great camerawork (as expected) and some of the characters like the villains, for example, were great. Who knows how this movie would have turned out had the studio not taken over and Raimi had more experience. Oh, and Bruce Campbell is awesome, of course.
