About the Movie

Bound 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?

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This is old-fashioned fun until the climactic battle, which almost comes across like routine bone piling after all the flights of fancy. – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

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 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?

Only the greatest movie ever!

bruce campbell shows his amazing acting in this comedy/horror film Army of Darkness, its got humor, action and the king himself Brice Campbell, dont think twice about buying this movie, just buy it, you will love it


This movie is great, but doesn't really make sense without the rest of the series. Please bring us The evil dead and the evil dead 2!!!!
