Happy-go-lucky S-Mart employee Ash is ripped from his 1990s existence and transported back to medieval times, where he must struggle against warring factions of men and an army of the dead that threatens all existence. The third film in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy puts the pedal to the metal with an endless array of sight gags, one-liners, and demon busting action sequences. Can Ash retrieve the ancient tome known as the Necronomicon and banish the evil forces it summons from the face of the earth? Or do we even care about plot with a film as wickedly fun and frenetic as Army of Darkness? “Sam Raimi’s “Army of Darkness” is a goofy, hyperventilated send-up of horror films and medieval warfare, so action-packed it sometimes seems less like a movie than like a cardiovascular workout for its stars.” – Roger Ebert



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
