Evil Dead: Army of Darkness (1992, U.S.)

armyofdarknessIn this sequel to the Evil Dead films, a discount-store employee (“Name’s Ash. Housewares.”) is time-warped to a medieval castle beset by monstrous forces. Initially mistaken for an enemy, he is soon revealed as the prophecised savior who can quest for the Necronomicon, a book which can dispel the evil. Unfortunately, he screws up the magic words while collecting the tome, and releases an army of skeletons, led by his own Deadite counterpart. What follows is a thrilling, yet tongue-in-cheek battle between Ash’s 20th Century tactics and the minions of darkness.

Frightful Discussion

  1. NOT A ZOMBIE MOVIE…

  2. The only one of the Evil Dead Triliogy that I have been able to see in theatres (and i was 12, and I watched it 8 times), it is, and was, a classic from start to finish. Ash’s journey through time to fight the Deadites and win the girl was beyond cheese, even in its time, and yet stand the test of time as being a true cult classic. Rumours of a fourth movie are everywhere, and I know I’m not the only one feverishly awaiting a chance to see Ash on the big screen once more.
