Movie Mania: Oz the Great and Powerful

Hello folks!

Today’s post has been waiting in my drafts folder for quite some time now. The movie I want to talk about is Sam Raimi’s star packed adventure Oz the Great and the Powerful.

Movie Mania: The Evil Dead + Evil Dead II + Army of Darkness

The teenagers accidentally awaken something very dark when they play a tape with recitations from the Necronomicon Ex Mortis. One after the other they get possessed…

Evil Dead II:
Beginning exactly where the first part ended, Evil Dead II picks up the story of the only survivor Ash. After killing all his friends (and girlfriend) he tries to escape only to be possessed aswell. But as day breaks he returns to normal. It turns out that the only way our has been destroyed trapping Ash in the hut.
Later we discover that the only way to put the demons back in their place is opening a portal…

Army of Darkness: Continue reading
