Movie-A-Day #292: Army of Darkness (1992).
October is National Book Month. And since we’re spending this month focusing on horror films, it seems only right that we should mention the most important book in horror, the Necronomicon. It’s turned up in a few films, but it’s never really been done right in the straight Lovecraft adaptations. “Army of Darkness” is pretty fun, but it sure plays fast and loose with the Lovecraftian canon. So if you want to see what all the fuss is really about you should, quite appropriately, stick to the original books.
