    So far I've only gotten to 1 hour and 9 minutes, but it's not good.

    The acting is bad. The script and director is bad.
    One guy walks into a bathtub and comes out with a haircut.
    the special effect are shitty.
    The "funny" parts are just stupid.

    I don't think anyone rated it that high so it's not overrated. What I like about it is, despite everything you've mentioned, which is all true, it still managed to creep me out. I haven't seen it since high school but that's how I remember it.

    It had 100% rating from the critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

    Take it as a whole package. Low budget, with a good foundation and lots of blood and guts. Throw in some tree rape, actually groundbreaking camera work and a sub b-movie feel.

    People walk into it with a notion it's a great horror film and since it's the early Raimi it must be awesome. It's not. It's fun and bloody and very much a b movie.

    I saw one of the last existing original film prints about 10 yrs ago. Seeing it In a theater with other fans is a religious experience. Much like rocky horror.

    Is DogStar the most over-rated cum dumpster?

    I love me some Evill Dead 2 and Army of Darkness. Nothing Oscar worthy but hits the right mix of horror and humor for me. Very tongue in cheek.
