My name is Ash and I am a slave. Close as I can figure, the year is thirteen hundred A.D and I’m being dragged to my death.
Army of Darkness is directed by Sam Raimi and Raimi co-writes the screenplay with his brother Ivan. It stars Bruce Campbell, Embeth Davidtz, Marcus Gilbert, Ian Abercrombie, Richard Grove and Timothy Patrick Quill. Music is by Joseph LoDuca and cinematography by Bill Pope.
Ash (Campbell) is transported to 1300 A.D., where he must battle an army of the dead and retrieve the Necronomicon so he can return home.
Unofficially it’s Evil Dead III, but as the fans will atest, this is a very different animal to the two films that preceeded it. Blending high energy jinks in medieval times with comedy horror staples, it’s a riotous idea that mostly works. Of course one has to accept it on its riotous terms, this for sure isn’t a pic for the highbrow crowd. Though it should at least be given the chance to brighten a dark day.
Campell as Ash is put through the mangler once again, with some nifty physical comedy nestling nicely with that of Ash’s anachronistic verbalities. It’s all breakneck stuff that’s performed with a wonderfully self mocking attitude that’s easy to warm to. It’s a comic book brought to life and it never sags, but some of the cartoon sequence beasties sadly do look a little flat.
Great fun if prepared for what type of pic it is, it’s not hard to see why it is so beloved in Evil Dead fan circles. 7/10
Footnote: There are alterante ending versions, of which I have only seen the downbeat time potion one – but being the miserable sod that I am, I love this ending.
Bruce Campbell at his “gimme some sugar Baby” best.
Klatu Verada mumble mumble…
What could possibly go wrong!?!?
This is just a fun, entertaining movie.
“Hail to the King, Baby”
It’s not good as “Evil Dead 2” but it’s still a fun humorous wacky movie with a bit of horror(well when it comes to the surroundings anyways). This doesn’t really have that scare factor compared to the first two, but instead it brings out the crazy, humorous and wacky elements way more this time around. And it takes place in the Medieval Ages I think. Even though this one doesn’t really have much to do with the previous installments it’s still has that flare going for it. sure it’s one of those movies that is the epitome of just going with the flow. Because a lot of it is random or doesn’t make much sense. But if you can just go with it, you can enjoy this. What really drives this movie though is Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash. His goofy, silly and wackiness while also being a badass brings a lot to this movie. And gives a incentive to root for his side. Although it can be cheesy at times it’s still a very fast-paced and entertaining film. Overall it’s a ridiculous movie that is so good.
