The Scariest The Scariest: Bruce Campbell Makes an Ash of Himself Written by John Stanley on May 28, 2016 More in The Scariest: The Scariest: Ash to Ashes May 28, 2016 The Scariest: Skeletons Out of the Closet May 28, 2016 The Scariest: British Nurse & American Werewolf May 28, 2016 This horse-bound collection of evil entities is from Army of Darkness (1993). It should have been titled Evil Dead 3 but Universal was afraid the title would debauch society and concealed its true origins. The film still made money all over the world. This time that warm-hearted, marshmallowy director Sam Raimi (writing with brother Ivan) has concocted a marvelous horror party in which smart alec Bruce Campbell (also a coproducer) travels back through time with his trusty chain saw to encounter terrors of the Dark Ages as he (you remember Ash, right?) is assaulted by Deadites, an army of skeletal monsters on horseback (see above), demons and time-space distortions. Composer Danny Elfman’s “March of the Dead” theme figured prominently and Bridget Fonda had a nice surprise cameo in all the cinematic chaos.
