Horror 101 – Episode 68: Evil Dead III: The Army of Darkness

Horror 101 – Episode 68: Evil Dead III: The Army of Darkness – September 26th, 2017

Trapped in time. Surrounded by evil. Low on gas

After our last farewell podcast we wanted to come back to you a little more upbeat and we had the perfect Part III to do it with. More comedy than horror, Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness is the endlessly entertaining third chapter to his Evil Dead story. At the end of Evil Dead II we saw Ash transported back to medieval times. Army of Darkness is the story of this out of place 20th century man fulfilling the foretold prophecy and becoming the savior of the realm. We’ll discuss our first experiences seeing the movie over 20 years ago. There’s a horror geek dispute that you won’t want to miss. Its Horror 101 covering Bruce Campbell Vs. The Army of Darkness.
