Hey, guys! Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks. It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme. We’re still all about the horror topics for October, so let’s talk about some horror comedy flicks!
#1 Evil Dead II/Army of Darkness
You have no idea how much I love this movie series. The first Evil Dead movie is mostly just horror not comedy but part 2 and 3 are amazing. You’ll be laughing so hard! Can we just take a moment to appreciate Bruce Campbell?
#2 Braindead aka Dead Alive
Did you ever wonder what Peter Jackson was doing before LOTR? This movie is something else. I swear, more people need to know it and love it!

I’ve already mentioned this show before but so far neglected to give it a proper introduction. So let me present to you: Ash vs. Evil Dead, a comedy horror show developed by Sam Raimi and based on his homonymous movie series!
What is it about? Our good old friend Ash (played by Bruce Campbell) is living a pretty decent life when all of sudden (because he did something stupid) the Evil Dead show up again, more 30 years after their last encounter. Well, as we all know, Ash is just THE man to stop them…
I don’t know why but I neglected writing this review for ages. Shame on me! So, today I have the honor to present to you one of Bruce Campbell finest movies!
An elderly man living in a retirement home claims to be Elvis, the guy who died in 1977 was in an impersonator. His only friend is Jack, an elderly man black man who thinks he is JFK. Anyway, the real action starts when the two have to team up in order to fight a re-animated ancient mummy… Continue reading →
