My name is Ash and I am a slave. Close as I can figure, the year is thirteen hundred A.D and I'm being dragged to my death. It wasn't always like this, I had a real life, once. A job.

Umm... Hardware aisle twelve, shop smart, shop S-Mart!

I had a wonderful girlfriend Linda. Together we drove to a small cabin in the mountains. It seems an archeologist had come to this remote place to translate and study his latest find...

Alternate Dialogue: In the theatrical release, when the evil Ash is mocking good Ash, Good Ash shoots Evil Ash with the shotgun and says, "Good or Evil, I'm the one with the shotgun." In the director's cut version he says, "I'm not that good." See more »
If you have seen the previous installments, the Evil Dead 1 and 2, you know what to expect from this movie. If you haven't, prepared to be shocked and impressed.
When I first saw Army of Darkness I had not seen the previous installments in the loosely called 'series'. I had no expectations, but right from the start of the film, it becomes clear that you are to relax, free your mind, and laugh as hard as you can.
Army of Darkness has no flaws in my opinion. It is perfectly paced and this is the role Bruce Campbell was born to play. The film sets a unique tone that not many movies can. It focuses more on comedy than gore unlike it's predecessors, but it works well in it's favor.
Once you watch it, you will have unlimited quotes to use with your friends. I still quote it to this day, and its been 20 years later. If you don't see this movie, you haven't lived life yet. Gimmie some sugar, baby.
