1989, AGFA, 83 min, USA, Dir: Scott Spiegel

Clean-up on aisle three! Immediately following the runaway success of EVIL DEAD 2, lifelong pals/colleagues Sam Raimi, Scott Spiegel and Bruce Campbell embarked on this entrails-encrusted cherry-on-top of the 1980s slasher phenomenon. The night shift employees of a small town grocery are being systematically slaughtered! Is it the checker's jealous boyfriend? Or the simple-minded butcher, played by Raimi himself? Whoever it is, this inventively injurious secret chopper is slicing and dicing his way through the entire staff, using everything from beef hooks to meat slicers to power tools to fresh produce.

1988, Park Circus/MGM, 80 min, USA, Dir: Michael A. Simpson

Trying to put past events behind her, Angela Baker returns to camp, this time as a counselor. But old habits die hard, especially when her campers misbehave. Much different in tone from its predecessor, this heavy-metal-blasting sequel goes for gallows humor and gleeful gore.
