We gave it a B-

Sam Raimi’s sequel (of sorts) to the dizzy, daffy Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness is still a hoot 16 years later. And its lantern-jawed hero, Bruce Campbell’s Ash, mixes Stooges-style slapstick and chainsaw-wielding mayhem like no other. But let’s be honest, any self-respecting fan already owns one or more of the cult flick’s previously released special editions. Does he or she (okay, he) really need another? Based on the EXTRAS here, no. The digital transfer is sweet, but the only new tidbit is a doc about how the F/X were created. B?
