From Back Cover:
Bound in human flesh and 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 (Darkman) 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 evil dead, rescue his girlfriend, and get back to his own time?
Overflowing with spectacular special effects, Army of Darkness will make you scream with fear and laughter. In the words of The Washington Post, it's "drop-dead fun"!
Although this is the third in the Evil Dead trilogy, Army of Darkness isn't much like its predecessors. There are zombies and witches and the like wreaking havoc, but this isn't really a horror movie. It is almost pure comedy and will probably have you saying "Groovy," "This is my boomstick!," and "Give me some sugar, baby" for awhile to come.
Rated R (MPAA)
