It's said that the past is a foreign country – and it doesn't get much more foreign than a feudal hellscape beset by war and demonic possession.
The third installment of the Evil Dead franchise begins where Evil Dead 2 left off – with chainsaw-armed protagonist Ash Williams flung through a mystic vortex and into a historically spurious version of the year 1300. Finding himself in an entire world overrun by the Deadites, Ash must track down the infamous Necronomicon Ex Mortis and put a stop to the infernal invasion.
Not only does Army of Darkness fully embrace the "splatstick" comedy begun by its immediate predecessor, it also becomes more overtly fantastical. Though Ash travels through time, the setting he finds himself in is so preposterous that he may as well have landed in Oz – a similarity that has not gone unnoticed.
