Dialogue
Army of Darkness is both the sequel and a spin-off of The Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2. Both can be considered some of the best horror movies ever made, so the bar is high. The last scene of Part 2 had the hero, Ash, be sucked into a portal and sent to medieval times. Army of Darkness picks up the story there, and injects elements of fandom fantasy and adventure into it.
From the original film to this one, Ash, again played by Bruce Campbell, has gained an incredible amount of self-confidence in only a few hours. Now one of the most iconic horror movie protagonists in history, he is the best thing about this film. He is an increasing caricature of himself, and engages in more elaborate fights. He eventually fights an army, as the title implies.
Army of Darkness attempts practical skeleton animation but appears behind its time. The demons of Part 2 were better designed. The make-up was better, too. Pet peeves aside, and as a stand-alone film, this comical epic depicts demons and the living dead in a manner similar to role-playing or video games. It’s also a nod and gift to the hardcore fan of horror and therefore of this franchise.
