Picking up the chainsaw again, Bruce Campbell gives a hyper-active performance as Ash,who leaps into action to take on the evil dead's army of darkness. Whilst less focused on the horror element,the writers do well twisting the Adventure tale into the Horror genre,as Ash is sent as a man on a mission to retrieve The Book of the Dead,and a surprising dip into Sci-Fi ends the trilogy on an excellent chilling note.
The Evil Dead trilogy already represents some of the best examples, in horror, horror-comedy and simply comedy in cinematic history. The Wiseman Ian Abercrombie focuses Ash as The Chosen One that will recover the Necronomicon yet Ash is just intrigued by returning home. He and Raimi are well acknowledged as longtime best friends, and they obviously had a ball making this film and threw everything but the kitchen sink into it amazing considering this is only an 80 odd minute film depending on which version you have. . In short we rejoin Ash as he is dragged inexorably into another dimension by the forces of evil, ending up in an earlier time of say the 1200s, when men were men, demons were prevalent and a constant threat, and American people spoke with thick and contrived British accents — especially the extras.
When Ash is thrown into a pit, he defeats two monsters and wins respect of Arthur's army and vassals. Sending Ash's 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 into Medieval times, the screenplay by the Rami's chop their lone hero into a fish out of water adventure,where Ash's off the cuff one-liners leads to very funny gruff exchanges with the knights.

After all look at what Michael Bay can do with hundreds of millions of dollars and ask yourself is that better? Some of the special effects are outdated but still good for 1992. When he learns that the only way to return to his time is using the Necronomicon, Ash decides to travel to the unholy land of the Deadites. The gore is not as gruesome as the first two films but the monsters are still fresh and unique. A brilliant conclusion to one of the better trilogies in cinema history.

Ash is transported with his car to 1,300 A. When he learns that the only way to return to his time is using the Necronomicon, Ash decides to travel to the unholy land of the Deadites. A scene in which one of Evil Ash's generals asks for orders and then rides off is hilarious when you look at the General's riding partner who is obviously little more than a skeleton shaped scarecrow, and the appearance of an unwitting crew member in the original version is another quirky and amusing oversight that enhances my enjoyment of this brilliant film. Only a few details actually line up with the events of the first two films — which were in reality the same film made twice anyway — but who cares when the new elements are this fun? Only having three titles by Dario Argento left to see I ended up picking Phantom of the Opera,which apart from the continuing of a few themes was a missed opportunity for Dario I decided to go for another movie to watch as a double bill on my 31st birthday.

Not a bad effort for a few blokes with a miniscule budget and a few crazy ideas. It remains unbelievably quotable and helped make Bruce Campbell move from a B movie actor into a B Movie Star, and the director Sam Raimi a bona fide Hollywood big shot, I think the Spiderman films might've helped though In the first 5 minutes Raimi effortlessly manages to catch us up on the first two films by showing the summarised backstory, only now including new scenes and events that featured Bridget Fonda as Ash's lady friend, and introducing his S-Mart career. Genre: , , Stars: , , Director: Sam Raimi Country: Rating: 7. Thankfully Raimi, Campbell and co were up to the task, the rough edges of Army of Darkness don't detract from the film at all, if anything they make it funnier.
