Following up Sam Raimi’s horror classic Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness takes the things we loved about the previous films and converts it into an action film. Blending dark fantasy and comedy, Army of Darkness continues the adventures of Ash (played by The Chin aka Bruce Campbell). He travels through time to find himself stuck in the dark ages and to get back to his own time, he’s gotta find the book of the dead. Sh*t hits the fan and causes an all out war with the undead. Memorable lines such as “This is my boomstick!” have immortalized Army of Darkness to film fans everywhere.
