Sent back in time

Army of Darkness’ airs on MGM at 9 pm on November 3. In this sequel to the ‘Evil Dead’ films, a discount-store employee, Ash, is time-warped to a medieval castle, beset by monstrous forces. Initially mistaken for an enemy, he is soon revealed to be the predicted saviour who can quest for the Necronomicon — a book which can dispel the evil.

 Unfortunately, he screws up the magic words while collecting the tome and releases an army of skeletons, led by his own counterpart. What follows is a thrilling, yet tongue-in-cheek battle between Ash’s 20th century tactics and the minions of darkness.

The secret of the motel

In the night, Marion is brutally stabbed while taking a shower. The money, the car, and Marion’s remains are quickly dumped in a nearby swamp.
