Army of Darkness (1992)

Army of Darkness (1992)

Director: Sam Raimi
Starring: Bruce Campbell, Embeth Davidtz, Marcus Golbert

Synopsis:
Transported to the Middle Ages, Ash must break the curse of the Necronomicon and find his way back home.

Impressions:
The Evil Dead series gets progressively campy as you go along and Army of Darkness is the pinnacle. It gets really goofy up until the final battle and even then it's rather silly. So long as you know full well that's what you're in for, it can be a pretty fun ride. You've got slapstick comedy, some pretty good (if occasionally goofy) action, effects of varying quality (sometimes deliberately cheap for comedic value), and a fair bit of quotable quotes. During the slapstick scenes, Bruce Campbell mugs the camera something fierce and if you really like to see an actor ham it up, you've got your movie. Give this one a watch.
