Army of Darkness (1992)
A sardonic hardware store clerk is accidentally transported to 1300 A.D., where he must retrieve the Necronomicon and battle an army of the dead so he can return home.
I've bought this movie five times. Initially, I got the director's cut as one of the very first DVDs I ever owned. Then I got the edition that came bundled with the theatrical cut. Then I bought the blu ray. Then I bought the fancy Scream Factory version of the blu ray. Then I bought the 4K. If it ever gets some sort of ridiculous 8K release, I'll probably buy that too.
What can I say? I love this movie. I love the silly plot, Bruce's acting, the practical effects, the humor, the ending(s), the climactic battle... it's really just the perfect medieval time-travel fantasy horror comedy... thing. One that I never get sick of watching. Is it as good as it's predecessor? No, but it's very close.
In the Mouth of Madness (1994)
An insurance investigator begins discovering that the impact a horror writer's books have on his fans is more than inspirational.
The third and final Carpenter film to make the list. This time he tackles some Lovecraftian things (kind of), while piling on the monsters, the jump scares, and Sam Neill losing his mind. I love it. I may not completely buy the plot (imagine a pulp horror writer being the most popular thing in the world), but when movies are this entertaining, who cares?
Also, check out Carpenter's Cigarette Burns. I won't call it a spiritual sequel, but there's a lot of similarities.
Two detectives, a rookie and a veteran, hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his motives.
Another borderline horror film. I included it mainly for "seven" particular scenes:
If you've seen the movie, you know exactly what I'm talking about. And you know I'm cheating there, a little bit. If you haven't seen it, immediately go watch it.
