I like this movie, and I feel bad that I didn't like it more. I think the story is great, and I like that it didn't take the easy way out of things by making characters pure evil or having the witch be a stereotype. It's all quite impressive. I like the folklore the town has created around the witch, with the statue of the stereotypical hag as well as the casino billboard with the sexy witch.
I just... didn't…
This is one of my favorite films ever. It is the perfect blend of sci-fi and horror. The special effects are so well done; modern movies should watch The Thing and weep in shame.
The characters, the paranoia, the sense of claustrophobic doom, it's all brilliantly done.
I watched this movie when I was decently young, so it holds a special place in my heart as being one of the few films that ever managed to scare me.
Just found my MGM Region 3 Director's Cut buried in a pile of DVDs. Groovy.
The movie is 93 minutes long with some alternate takes and the original ending. It's awesome, though I do miss "Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun."
Army of Darkness is a ridiculous, campy, over-the-top slapstick comedy in which the goofy Ash manages to make life a lot more difficult for everyone he meets. There really is nothing like a Bruce Campbell one-liner.
