October 15th: Just for Fun
One of the best “Just for Fun” horror movies is Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness (1992). This is the third installment of the Evil Dead franchise; however, the studios hoped it would stand on its own and refused the title Evil Dead III. Army of Darkness pays homage to the slapstick routines of the Three Stooges.
Home goods clerk Ash is transported back to 1300 A.D. medieval times to battle an army of dead to recover the magic book, Necronomicon.
Yep, that’s about it. However, Bruce Campbell excels at playing the snarky clerk while interjecting his favorite word: Groovy. Don’t miss this film. Raimi is a master of horror and rekindled the genre.
