Gimme some sugar, babyBy JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 05 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]The third - and seemingly ultimate - of the Evil Dead movies discovers Ash Williams and his trusty chainsaw, somehow transferred to medieval England, about to clash, once again, with the undead. Whilst being an alien in a peculiar place, he entices an auspicious young woman, Sheila and assists the hesitant inhabitants.
One of the wonderful things about this film is that it progresses at such a rip-roaring swiftness that one has barely time to catch their breath or even total the irrationality of the story. But, who cares? This submission, which somewhat avoids the initial Evil Dead's basis, and exploits more of the crazed, intense rapidity of Evil Dead 2, seems contented to tender considerable quantities of humour mixed with guttural bloodshed and merely the thinnest character exposition. This is a magnificent conclusion to the finest trilogy in the comedy horror genre (probably).

Skeleton crew.By Oi (29 reviews) from Harwich , 31 Aug 2013Bruce Campbell larks it up and what a laugh! I am not a fan of serious horror and although 28 years old this had me splitting my sides> Everyone is in on the joke with this film and Bruce isn`t afraid of making a fool of himself......nice one.
"This is my boomstick!"By ArrogantDuck (69 reviews) , 09 Aug 2013The gore & horror of the first two movies is shed in favour of comic-strip style adventure. It's not my favourite of the franchise, but it's still good, unpretentious fun.
Groovy Bruce on top form..By showmethemoney (516 reviews) from South Wales , 25 Mar 2013This truly defines the comedy horror genre. It's got the best of both worlds. There's enough horror on show to stay true to its roots, without losing the comedic elements which plays a big part too. We always find ourselves changing opinion on the best of the series between this and the original, as they're both so good.
Hail to the King baby!By NESlami (18 reviews) from Leeds , 05 Jan 2012Hilarious. Easily the best of the series. Boomsticktastic, hail to the King baby and all that jazz.
If you like any kind of comedy or horror you must watch this.
