Army of Darkness


Starring Bruce Campbell, Embeth Davidtz, Ian Abercrombie, Bridget Fonda.

Summary: In this third entry in the Evil Dead series, S-Mart employee Ash (Bruce Campbell) stumbles upon the Necronomicon which, when used with the correct spell, can either raise or vanquish the dead. He is thrown back in time to medieval England (or so they say) and meets up with warring fiefdoms, who believe him to be the "Chosen One." Ash and his trusty chainsaw hand must quest for the Necronomicon in a spooky graveyard. He forgets his lines, and wouldn't you know, the dead come back with a vengeance to reclaim the Necronomicon. Will Ash save the day?

Contributing Genres: Comedy (of the Monty Python variety) and Fantasy

Dialogue: This is a great combination of Monty Python and Saturday Night Live. Witty one-liners saturate the script.

Monster Type: The "Army of Darkness," in various stages of decay, plus a few cool demons.

Gore Factor: This movie isn't particularly gory; the campy special effects create the humor.

Scariness/Suspense: This film may be scary to a five-year-old child, but to the average college student, it's hilarious.

Target Audience: Fans of Monty Python, SNL, and Tales from the Crypt should love this flick.
