JWM SPOOKATHON 2017: Army of Darkness (1992)


A man is accidentally transported to 1300 A.D., where he must battle an army of the dead and retrieve the Necronomicon so he can return home. (IMDb)
I was hoping for some campy horror goodness and was not disappointed: The stop-motion skeletons, creepy books, and aggressive old witches (and let’s not forget the murderous mini-mes and body double growing out someone’s shoulder) are only amplified in their goofy spookiness by the cliche medieval setting and entertaining zoom-happy camerawork. Would’ve liked to see a few more memorable characters, but the cheesy macho Ash is a solid, quotable lead (“Good. Bad. I’m the guy with a gun”).
7.5/10 (Really Good)
CREEPY QUOTE: “The book awoke something dark in the woods, something evil.” – Ash
