Army of DarknessClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Beyond in human flesh, inked in blood-and amazingly hard to pronounce-the ancient "Necronomicon" (Book of the Dead) unleashes unspeakable evil upon mankind in director Sam Raimi's (Spider-Man) outrageously hilarious sword-and-sorcery epic. Back to do battle with the hideous "Deadites," Bruce Campbell reprises his role from the Evil Dead series as Ash, the handsome, shotgun-toting, chainsaw-armed department store clerk from S-Mart's housewares division. Demonic forces time warp him-and his '73 Oldsmobile-into England's Dark Ages, where he romances a beauty (Embeth Davidtz) and faces legions of undead beasts, including a ghastly army of skeletons. Can Ash save the living from the dead, rescue his girlfriend and get back to his own time?

Fresh: This is old-fashioned fun until the climactic battle, which almost comes across like routine bone piling after all the flights of fancy.
We need to get some Evil Dead up here
Army of Darkness is my 3rd favorite movie (Evil Dead II, Dark Knight, ARMY OF DARKNESS) and here's why. It follows the character of Ashley (Ash) J. Williams in his journey to the past that is far better explained in Evil Dead II. He is only able to be sent back to his own time (and his job at S Mart) if he finds the Necronomicon (Book of the Dead) which will also free the people who can help him from the attacks of the deadites. Ash has to find the book, get the babe, fight some demons, and get back home...like in the deal. This movie has it all, and some sugar, baby! It is a hilarious, gorey, wonderful display of Bruce Campbell's ingenious acting ability, and anyone who says differently is a deadite. Now here's my concern: I want the goodness of all three Evil Dead movies on my iPhone to spread the rainbow of bodily fluids throughout my world. Who's with me?
You just don't understand, that's all
Great movie! This movie is so silly, that it's actually funny. I have always liked Army of Darkness. Thanks iTunes for providing it. To the person who gave it only 1 star, you're probably just a "goody little two shoes, goody little two shoes!!"
A classic. Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, & the special effects masters KNB! You cant ask for more. Great story, funny lines, fantastic looking monsters. If you know horror, then you know this is a must own!
