By god lets give em what for...,
This review is from: Army Of Darkness Aka Evil Dead III [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Ash finds himself stranded in the year 1300 AD with his car, his shotgun, and his chainsaw.
Soon he is discovered and thought to be a spy for a rival kingdom and is taken prisoner. After proving his merit in The Pit, he decides to help the kingdom retrieve the Necronomicon, which will also help him return to his own time, which they need to battle the supernatural forces at play in the land.
Ash accidentally releases the Army of Darkness when retrieving the book, and a fight to the finish ensues.....
A word of advice, if you really want to enjoy the film for what it is, try not to see the first two movies in close proximity to this, it really does tarnish the overall effect of the film.
It can be seen as a standalone film, because the film really has no continuity with the first two, other than he gets sucked into the past, and he has a chainsaw.
But it's fun, and this was when Raimi was getting a too clever for Hollywood and when Campbell started self parody, so by no means expect a horror film. It has parts that are slightly eerie, like the pit scene, but its laugh out loud funny all the way through.
It's as if Raimi doesn't care what people think of his trilogy, he's doing this for himself and his friends, and the love of the film is evident, even though one feels we are being left out of most of the joke.
Effects are intentionally cheesy, as is the script, but its short, exciting and never once gets boring.
