Army Of Darkness

Hallowe'en Must-See Cinema! Alright. Who wants some?

Whereas the second installment of Sam Raimi's ‘The Evil Dead’ series was little more than a stylish remake of his original low-budget gore-fest showcasing a director of great promise, Army Of Darkness ventured further into almost Pythonesque territory.

Poster for the Sam Raimi cult classic Army Of DarknessThrown into a time-travelling vortex, Ash (Bruce Campbell, the Jim Carrey of action heroes) finds himself dumped in the 13th century where Arthurian knights take him up. The only way to return to the present is to retrieve the Ancient Book Of The Dead (aka The Necronomicon). In so doing he accidentally unleashes a horde of skeletons led by his evil double. Using his uncanny awareness of 20th century technology and lingo (‘Shop smart. Shop S-Mart,’ he tells a medieval crowd curious about his shotgun), Ash must save the day.
