    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    You really think they would be my cup of tea? Admittedly, I see some good in The Evil Dead as a modest grindhouse spectacle. It trades plot for atmosphere and the minimal budget works to its favor, but there's really no need for a sequel. It's more of the same.

    Actually, it's quite different. There is much more over-the-top comedy.
