Army of Darkness Review


A man is accidentally transported to 1300 A.D., where he must battle an army of the dead and retrieve the Necronomicon so he can return home.

Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness (1992) is the final entry in the Evil Dead trilogy. The Evil Dead trilogy is another of my all time favorites even though they had an extremely tight budget with each horror movie. This masterpiece from the director of the Spider-Man franchise Sam Raimi and B-movie king Bruce Campbell plays Ash, the great zombie killing/bashing hero.

This one took the cake. I loved Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness’ horror mixed with a gothic Castlevania setting. The Evil Dead III: Army of Darkness is great to watch anytime especially excellent when you’re bored. Army of Darkness is my favorite of the Evil Dead franchise.

Bruce Campbell plays Ash Williams who is an S-Mart employee that gets transported back in time to medieval England. The Necronomicon is the key back but once retrieved raises the army of the dead ( zombies) in which Evil Ash becomes the leader and leads the war of the undead. The zombie hordes are pushed back by Ash in an incredibly funny way. Not a scary movie but very enjoyable.

Best zombie kill scene: Ash kills massive amounts of zombies by mounting propeller blades on the front of his Oldsmobile while spinning around in the castle courtyard.
