Editor's NoteUnassuming store clerk Ash (Bruce Campbell) is time-warped into England's Dark Ages, where he must find the Necronomicon, a compendium of the black arts, before he can return home. Fortunately, he has time to romance a beautiful princess and battle an army of skeletons. This is the inspired sequel to EVIL DEAD and EVIL DEAD 2.

|It's hard to say no to another edition of Sam Raimi's comedy/horror cult classic, Army of Darkness. The brand new Screwhead Edition is the film's first release on Blu-ray. Army of Darkness is the sequel to the comedy/horror classic Evil Dead II and continues the adventures of Ash (Bruce Campbell). After discovering a great evil in the wood and being attacked by a wild (yet quirky) horde of undead (and even having to kill his possessed girlfriend), Ash is dropped into medieval England, where he finds that the evil he experienced in his own time is gaining strength in the Middle Ages. In order to get back home, Ash strikes a deal with the locals, where he must venture into a creepy cemetery and retrieve the Necronomicon. ...read the full review|

Good Horror Fun3/28/2013
The blu-ray version is really the best possible way to watch this classic movie. I'm surprised at how much humor is involved, everything from slapstick comedy right down to the dialog. The disc has some extra features like commentary and stuff which is nice. A lot of the other extras are accessed via the menu. This is such a family favorite and I'm constantly telling new people to watch it, it's that good!
Beautiful on Blu12/3/2012
I have bought versions of Army of Darkness on VHS and DVD and finally I bought this Blu-ray. I love the picture quality. It is definitely worth the money for any lover of Army of Darkness. Most of the special features seem to be available through BD Live. The on disc features are the alternate ending and a separate feature on Creating the Deadites. A must have for collectors.
One of my favorite movies of all time!9/25/2011
This movie is a cult-classic. It's basically an action comedy with a ton of quotable dialog, you'll definitely be saying lines from this movie the rest of your life. The story follows Ash getting sucked into a time portal trying to find his way home. He's given a mission to seek out a book. Things go awry the whole way. If you love classic comedies or cult-classics you have to get this movie. Everything is sharper and looks great on blu-ray compared to DVD.
