"Army of Darkness" (1993)

The third of the "Evil Dead" movies. Although, since the second one was just a remake of the first, this is more of a sequel to the second than the third in a trilogy. It starts when the second left off, with Ash in the past, and continues with the slapstick humor. The scenes with the mini-Ashs in the windmill are hilarious, and there are some classic Three Stooges routines in the graveyard scene.

The special effects are the best of the three movies. They really went all out with this. The only effect that really didn't work is when the two mini-Ashs are holding the big Ash's nose closed. it took me a moment to figure out what was supposed to be going on there. Modern CGI would have handled that better, but it was a good try for green scene work.

A good movie if you like slapstick comedy with skeletons and hokey dialog. I liked it and I was never a fan of the Three Stooges.

I was disappointed with the DVD. Three different versions of this movie exist but we only get one of them with no deleted scenes, alternative endings, or commentary.

Love this movie and you don't need to see first 2 to get the idea of what's going on.
I saw this one on TV years ago, before I saw the other two. While it is true that the plot is very straight forward and you can understand what is going on without having seen the previous movie, I did feel like I was missing something.

I hate seeing movies out of order.
