When director Sam Raimi decided to make a 2nd 'Evil Dead' movie, 5 years after the first, he approached Joseph LoDuca to write the score again, as he had for the first film. The result does not disappoint. LoDuca succeeds - and improves on - the score for the first 'Evil Dead'.

There are only 2 flaws with this release; the first is that the tracks are not in chronological order (a sore spot with a lot of soundtrack buffs), and the second being the limited playing time (it's only about 45 minutes long). Having said that, the rest of it is GREAT.

'Book of Evil', which tells some of the story of the 'Necronomicon XMortis', or book of the dead, serves as the film's main title. It has a distinctly creepy, rumbling motif featuring low brass/strings with a 'gnashing' synthesizer thrown in. 'Ash's Dream/Dancing Game/Dance of the Dead' uses a flat violin/cello effect as Ash's girlfriend Linda, now one of the Evil Dead ghouls, rises out of her makeshift grave and the head rolls across the ground, then does the wild 'Dance of the Dead' in front of the window, in the same way Linda had done for Ash when she was alive. The theme then stops abruptly as Evil Dead Linda vanishes into the trees. 'Hush Lil' Baby/Pee Wee Head' does a creepy piano take on the well-known children's song, as Evil Dead Henrietta - now host to a vile Candarian demon - pushes her head through the locked cellar door & tries to goad Ash and her daughter into letting her out.

LoDuca is a seriously underrated composer; while not in the same league as John Williams, James Horner, Lalo Schifrin or the late Jerry Goldsmith, he definitely knows how to create a score for a horror film. Great CD!

This album cements my position that Joseph Lo Duca is the most underappreciated and underutililized composer/conductor in Hollywood. The score is brilliant, however, incomplete. It lacks those heroic strings when Ash transforms himself into the Evil Dead Warrior and climbs out of the fruit cellar to battle Henrietta and save Annie. Seeing as how these strings round out Ash's journey, symbolize his transformation as a character, and add to the epic quality of the Evil Dead films, I am stunned that they are not included on this album. Disappointing. Buyer beware.

The score to Evil Dead 2 is as fun and scary as the film it self. A little short, running only 34 min. , but still a must have for any film score library. Hearing this score brings back fond memories of an excellent piece of work.

I'm a big fan of the "Evil Dead" films and have always liked Joe LoDuca's score.
This one has some of his best work and you hear most of it in the movie, but
it's great to hear it all on this cd. I recommend this.
