Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
There is panic throughout the nation as the dead suddenly come back to life. The film follows a group of characters who barricade themselves in an old farmhouse in an attempt to remain safe from these flesh eating monsters.
Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. While the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
Ashley Williams travels to a secluded cabin in the woods with his girlfriend Linda where they find a tape recording of a professor and a book of evil. This unleashes a bunch of evil spirits that constantly terrorize Ash. Meanwhile a journalist comes to the area to study the book of evil. Ash and her end up having to survive this swarm of evil until morning comes.
Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert's original idea for the film's plot had Ash held captive in the cabin by a group of escaped convicts searching for buried treasure. Bobby Joe's death was originally planned for a man and would have been much more violent with him being split in half by a tree. See more »
When Ash's hand gets bitten by the Evil Head, it is bitten on the flap of skin between index finger and thumb. Later, when the hand itself becomes possessed, and drags Ash along the floor towards the meat cleaver, the bite wound is still there, though the teeth marks are less pronounced, and there is a new large open wound on the back of the hand.

Raimi and Campbell are back for a bigger and juicier sequel!
Evil Dead II (1987) After the huge success of the first film, Sam Raimi and
Bruce Campbell reunite for this Quasi-Remake/Sequel. Ash and his lady
are off on a nice trip through the woods. They stop off and rest inside an
old cabin. Does Ash realize that he's been here before, or hasn't he? Raimi and company (armed with a bigger budget and over the top special effects) bring us the second installment of the Evil Dead series. This film focuses
more on black humor and camp instead of shock and horror. Technically
this film is far superior to the one that was release a few years back and in many ways it's a better film.
What a better way to spend the night? Watch Evil Dead II with some of
your friends and let the party begin! Leave all logic at the door.
Remember, this is a movie, and a fun one at that.
