    B-MOVIE BINGO: ARMY OF DARKNESS

    ARMY OF DARKNESS (1992)
    Showing Tuesday 10/3/2017 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Bound in human flesh, inked in blood — and amazingly hard to pronounce — the ancient “Necronomicon” (Book of the Dead) unleashes unspeakable evil upon mankind in director Sam Raimi’s (DARKMAN) outrageously hilarious sword-and-sorcery epic.
     
    Back to do battle with the hideous “Deadites”, Bruce Campbell reprises his role from the EVIL DEAD series as Ash, the handsome, shotgun-toting chainsaw-armed department store clerk from S-Mart’s warehouse division. Demonic forces time-warp him — and his ’73 Oldsmobile — into England’s Dark Ages, where he romances a beauty (Embeth Davidtz) and faces legions of undead beasts, including a ghastly army of skeletons. Can Ash save the living from the evil dead, rescue his girlfriend, and get back to his own time?
     
    Overflowing with spectacular special effects, ARMY OF DARKNESS will make you scream with fear and laughter. In the words of the Washington Post, it’s “drop-dead fun!”
     
    Directed by Sam Raimi (THE EVIL DEAD, SPIDER-MAN).

    Yuen Biao (EASTERN CONDORS, WHEELS ON MEALS) and Cynthia Rothrock (CHINA O’BRIEN, LADY DRAGON) star in this explosive action thriller classic, easily their finest work and also known as RIGHTING WRONGS. Yuen is a mild-mannered prosecutor who takes the law into his own hands, when the justice system fails to capture the most notorious criminals. As the police assign a tough gutsy inspector (Rothrock) to stop Yuen’s vigilante hunting out of court, another murder brings them together in the search for the real killer, who may or may not be one of their own! Already an instant classic among Hong Kong action fans, ABOVE THE LAW is filled with some of the best fight scenes ever filmed, and a hair-raising stunt finale that has yet to be surpassed!
     
    Directed by Corey Yuen (NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER, LETHAL LADY).
