Midnights at the Baxter presents 'Army of Darkness' [Movies]
Print this page

Sam Raimi hit solid gold in the early 1980s. He was a 22-year-old aspiring filmmaker who had previously made short movies on a Super 8 camera with a friend of his named Bruce Campbell – you may have heard of him. In 1981, he decided to go for a feature-length film, and the result was the low-budget horror/comedy The Evil Dead. The story is simple: a group of friends rent out a cabin in the woods and discover an old book along with an audio tape containing incantations from the book. When the tape is played, it summons forth demonic entities, and a bloodbath ensues. The Evil Dead currently has a rabid cult following, complete with hero worship for Mr. Campbell. The film was followed by two sequels: The Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness.

It is with Army of Darkness that we are concerned today, for Baxter Avenue Theater presents a midnight screening of said film tomorrow, Saturday, as this week’s installment in the Midnights at the Baxter series. Army of Darkness continues the story where The Evil Dead 2 left off. We find our hero, Ash (Bruce Campbell), pulled through a time portal and transported to the year 1300. An army of the undead awaits him as he must retrieve the Necronomicon – a book bound in human flesh.

Army of Darkness screens at midnight on Saturday. Baxter Avenue Theater is located at 1250 Bardstown Road, in Mid-City Mall. Further theater information and advance ticket sales (because this almost certainly will sell out) can be found at the Baxter Avenue Theater website.

And, please: leave your chainsaws at home.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
