Army of Darkness (1993)

armyofdarkness2In this sequel to the Evil Dead films – The Evil Dead (1981) and Dead By Dawn (1987) – a discount-store employee (“Name’s Ash. Housewares.”) is time-warped – along with his ’73 Oldsmobile – to a medieval castle beset by monstrous forces.

Initially mistaken for an enemy, he is soon revealed as the prophecised saviour who can quest for the Necronomicon, a book which can dispel the evil.

Unfortunately, he screws up the magic words while collecting the tome and releases an army of skeletons, led by his own Deadite counterpart.

What follows is a thrilling, yet tongue-in-cheek battle between Ash’s 20th Century tactics and the minions of darkness.

This infinitely quotable second sequel (and final instalment) abandoned its gore-laden roots almost entirely in favour of some truly unforgettable comic scenes.armyofdarkness5
