Army of Darkness

Army of Darkness

Now that's what I'm talking about.

EDIT: My watching of this for the first time retroactively became the kickoff for a three-day movie marathon my household dubbed "Cinepocalypse," lovingly swiping the title from the Chicago film festival of the same name. Our conceit was simple: to look at the concept of the end of the world from narratives beyond the simple "politics go bad and sky goes boom" (although that's certainly an element explored). Here in Raimi's finish to the EVIL DEAD trilogy the apocalypse is all shtick and mostly-centered on one man's quest to be rid of it as quickly and conveniently as possible (you wouldn't believe the night he's had). I'm not sure there's much worth tracing the eschatological outlook of this film to any real-world subtext, but everyone involved seems to be making it clear there really needn't be any cause to do so. MEDIEVAL DEAD still would've been a better title, though.
