Episode 72: Thrice Upon a Castle in the Desert
It's time again, for Dawn and Jen to go on a journey of re-discovery through one of horror's most beloved franchises: The Evil Dead. Coming off of the successful Darkman and a deal with Universal, Raimi and company set their sights on the distant past, an epic journey, and a clear focus.
...and almost forget where the heart and soul of the series resides.
While Army of Darkness was the most commercially successful of the series, the pared-down feature strips most of the nuance and (admittedly thin) logic out in favor of more yuk-yuks, bravado, foolishness and accidentally becomes more problematic than the movie with the tree-rape scene.
This episode is the third in a series that will cover all three Evil Dead movies and the 2013 remake. Stay tuned.
