‘Evil Dead Trap 2: Hideki’ Review

Evil Dead Trap 2 is definitely a unique film that will have a niche of fans. It is definitely not for everyone, while some may be able to compare it David Cronenberg’s Crash, I don’t think it has the same kind of bite to the story and most of the characters are underwritten and underwhelming. The lead performances are squandered by the lack of emotional depth, that makes this feel more like an Eli Roth film.

Especially when something is called Evil Dead Trap 2, you expect it to be too shocking to watch especially when Unearthed Films helps distribute the DVD. It’s one of those films you hear about all your life as a long-time horror fan but doesn’t live up to the hype. The picture quality wasn’t that great either as there were a lot of grainy spots throughout the film. The sound, however, was spectacular.

The special features are all but absent on this release. With included features like the photo gallery and trailers for the film. The thing that makes Evil Dead Trap 2 mediocre is the pacing, it could have been easily improved if they cut out 15 minutes of the film to keep it moving.

Overall Grade: 2/5 Stars
