Trivia

Before they moved on to make Ash vs Evil Dead (2015), Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell confirmed that this film is set in the same continuity as the original trilogy and their plan was to make Army of Darkness 2, a sequel to this film starring Mia, and one final film with Ash and Mia teaming up to fight Deadites. Since Universal Studios passed on Army of Darkness 2, with Ash's adventures now being told in Ash vs. Evil Dead, and the sequel to this film appearing to have been shelved, it is doubtful that this team-up will ever happen.

User Reviews

Perfectly acceptable horror, but it's no future classic
20 March 2015 | by (Birkenhead United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

(53%) A remake of a horror comedy classic, only with almost all the comedy removed, and most of the fun, and the low budget charm, the crazy trippy scenes of madness, Bruce Campbell, the black humour, all with the added fact that this will be largely forgotten about an hour or a so after watching while the original can be played vividly in my mind scene by scene from beginning to end. So as a remake I'd stick with hugely fun Evil Dead 2, but with all that's been said this is still an okay watch. It doesn't add anything to it by saying this is the highest quality of all the Evil Dead movies, mainly because here they had a budget of over $100 to spend, but this is well shot with good production values and some very graphic blood and gore. And by the end that's the only thing you'll be able to slightly remember from this throwaway rehash of low budget horror perfection.
