Army of Darkness (also known as Evil Dead III, Evil Dead III: Army of Darkness, Bruce Campbell vs. Army of Darkness, or The Medieval Dead) is a 1993 comedy horror fantasy film and the third and final installment of the Evil Dead film trilogy. It was directed by Sam Raimi, written by Raimi and his brother Ivan, produced by Robert Tapert, and starred Bruce Campbell and Embeth Davidtz. Continuing where Evil Dead II left off, Ash Williams is trapped in the Middle Ages and he battles the undead in his quest to return to the present.

Army of Darkness is not as violent or gory as the prior Evil Dead films, relying more on slapstick. The film was produced as part of a production deal with Universal Studios after the financial success of Darkman. Filming took place in California and it was released on February 19, 1993. It achieved $21.5 million and was also a commercial success and also received positive reviews from critics, though less than the previous films. Since its video release it has acquired a cult following, along with the other two films in the trilogy.

Plot

After a brief flashback to Evil Dead II, which explains the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis and how Ash got to where he is, Ash lands in Medieval England, where he is almost immediately captured by Lord Arthur's men, who suspect him to be an agent for Duke Henry, with whom Arthur is at war. He is enslaved along with the captured Henry, his gun and chainsaw confiscated, and is taken to a castle. Ash is thrown in a pit where he fights off a Deadite and regains his weapons from Arthur's Wise Man. After demanding Henry and his men be set free (since Henry stood up for him, and swore he did not know who Ash was), Ash is celebrated as a hero. He also grows attracted to Sheila, the sister of one of Arthur's fallen knights.
