The boomstick takes another shot on home media next Tuesday when Scream Factory unleashes their three-disc Collector's Edition Blu-ray of Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness. Ahead of the anticipated release, we have clips and trailers from the film to help hold fans over and keep the Deadites at bay.
Army of Darkness Collector's Edition Blu-ray: "Back to do battle with the hideous "Deadites," Bruce Campbell returns to the role of Ash, the handsome, shotgun-toting, chainsaw-armed department store clerk from S-Mart's housewares division. Demonic forces time warp him – and his '73 Oldsmobile – into England's Dark Ages, where he romances a beauty (Embeth Davidtz, The Amazing Spider-Man) and faces legions of the undead. Can Ash save the living from the evil dead, rescue his girlfriend, and get back to his own time?
