More Movies Please!


Oct 30, 2020

On the podcast this week, Steven and Sean are bringing the band back together again and it is glorious. We’ve got a special guest coming along this film journey with us today. It’s the one and only Greg Dengler! It’s a good thing he’s here with us because we’ve got a legion of Deadites to smite back into the netherworld in the Sam Raimi film from 1992, Army of Darkness.

Don’t you just hate it when you narrowly escape from murderous demons who want to do what they do best only to find yourself sucked way back in time when you have to destroy an army of… murderous demons who want you dead? Mondays, am I right?

If your name is Ash, then you’re probably well acquainted with that unfortunate conundrum. Dude just wanted to spend some sexy time with his special lady friend out in a spooky cabin in the woods and this is what he’s got to deal with? Can’t the dude ever catch a break? Oh, he’s got to find an ancient evil book, bound in human skin and written in blood, and deftly perform a deceptively tough ritual with it to send all the baddies back to hell where they belong? Anything else you want this poor, beleaguered man to do?

He’s totally up to the task, though. I mean, the dude (momentarily) has a chainsaw for an arm. If anyone can squash the minions of darkness, it’s a guy with logging gear strapped onto him.

We had a wonderful time watching this one with Greg. His deep knowledge of filmmaking and cult movies makes for a fascinating conversation about one of Sam Raimi’s earlier works. We loved watching a filmmaker like Raimi really come into his own with this film. His storytelling and production confidence are on full display here. It’s no wonder that he’s become one of the most respected directors working today.

If you’re looking for a spooky good time, and a stellar B-movie, then you’ve come to the right place. Just be sure not to forget your boom stick.
