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.
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.
When Annie is trying to pull Jake out of the cellar door, she is sprayed with blood and her shirt and shorts soaked in the front. When she turns around, she's almost completely clean.
In the TV edit, you can see the amount blood on her shirt matches the one in the release version; it was never used in the film version, but for TV broadcast in an attempt to tone down the violence. See more »

The full version of the film is considered lost, but nonetheless behind-the-scenes photo and video of some scenes have been found and are included on the laserdisc and DVD editions: As Henrietta is in her rocking chair while the professor is reading the incantations, she rocks into the light, which reveals her demonic eyes. Linda's severed head throws up black bile on Ash when it's trapped in the vice (which is why black slime suddenly appears around her mouth in the final scene). Linda's severed head puts its long snake-like tongue into Ash's mouth when he's sitting in the rocking chair. Alternate longer take of the "blood flood" with green and yellow blood. After hitting the possessed Ed with the ax, the scene continues as a "half-headed" Ed runs after them and eventually is chopped to pieces. The body parts flop on the floor. A possessed Ash eating a squirrel as he runs after Annie. See more »
This film, is without a shadow of a doubt, one of finest, most imaginative comedy horror films ever made. Raimi, has put all the aspects of the film together in masterful fashion. The camera work and sound effects are pulsating, and the timing is perfection. And in Bruce Campbell, the film as a lead actor who gives an exceptional performance. Campbell plays "Ash", an everyday, supermarket attendant who suddenly finds himself thrown into the unusual situation of having to defend himself against, zombies, evil spirits and even his own possessed hand, just in order to survive the night. I laughed, I gasped, and I gripped the arm of my chair throughout! If you like your comedies, black and hilarious, and your horror, gory and sensational, then look no further. Raimi has created the definitive comedy horror! Fantastic!
