(us) wrote: What a disapointment, I apreciate Sam Raimis love for Harryhausen films and the 3 stooges, but this is NOT a horror movie, at best its a fantasy/comedy, it just pales in comparison to evil dead 1 and 2, I think thats probably why he did Ash vs evil dead series, to ward off all the hate mail, i personly think this would have been alot better recieved had he NOT made it a part of the cult fav evil dead series, because if you separate it from that, its not a bad fantasycomedy, its just the insult that pissed so many people off, we wanted gore not xena action!
(nl) wrote: I am shocked at how much I enjoyed this piece of nonsense. The sense of humor was wonderfully dark, having Tony Todd, Mr. Candyman himself, in a wonderfully dark cameo, naming characters after greats of horror cinema past and having the most elaborate and amusing death scenes in recent memory. I can't wait to watch the other 4.
