The third and final chapter of director Sam Raimi's Evil Dead trilogy, Army Of Darkness immediately follows the events of Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn with our hero, Ash (Bruce Campbell), being sucked into a vortex which transports him to Medieval England. Initially perceived as a spy by the occupants of a royal castle under siege from the dark forces of the Deadites, he soon proves himself to the locals and is hailed as the deliverer of the Necronomicon, an ancient tome with the power to ward off the evil onslaught and the potential to return Ash to his own time.
Meanwhile, he falls in love with a local woman, Sheila (Embeth Davidtz). Unfortunately, while retrieving the book, Ash screws up the required incantation and unwittingly unleashes an army of skeletons led by his own Deadite alter ego, Evil Ash. Now he must use his 20th Century wits and skills to overcome his evil self, his possessed medieval girlfriend and the entire Army of Darkness in a battle to save the living from the dead!
