You may recognize the theme music the next time you watch the Olympics. (No. It's not the “Olympic” theme, but the theme NBC has been using for the past few.)
My favorite supporting character: Pete. (Watch for that actor later...)
This movie best watched with a rowdy group who already know the lines a la “Rocky Horror”.....
A few snipets:
King: “Are all men from the future such loud-mouth braggarts?!?”
Ash: “Nope. Just me, baby. Just me.”
Ash: “THIS is my BOOMSTICK!” (etc., etc., etc.)
“It's a trick. Get an ax!”
“You ain't got but two things: Jack and shit. And Jack left town.”
I especially enjoyed the series of zoom shots when creating Ash's metal hand.
Oh, and pay attention to Ted Raimi's FOUR roles in this movie.
A delight and a half.
