Drag Me To Hell


I'll spare you a 3rd review of this film and just say that I found it to be very Evil Deadish and liked it very much. Now on to an interesting fact I stumbled on that some of you may have known but it somehow slipped past me. Tony actually noticed it, the car.

From Spike's Top 7 Cars That Kill:

The director of the Evil Dead series, Sam Raimi, seems to have a soft spot for 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88s – he’s featured it in all but one of his films (and in that one, The Quick and the Dead, he just covered the car with a wagon frame).

But it wasn’t until Army of Darkness that the Delta 88 reached its pinnacle of awesomeness, when Ash and his cohorts somehow managed to rig up what appeared to be helicopter blades and a cow catcher to the front end and subsequently went on an undead blood-letting orgy. Sadly, the Delta 88 didn’t survive the assault, but it did literally go out in a “blaze of glory”.

Cool! Glad someone else saw this.

50 and I were already well-versed in the lore of the car, and spotted it right away.

Shucks, I would've seen it.
