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.
Two siblings and three of their friends en route to visit their grandfather's grave in Texas end up falling victim to a family of cannibalistic psychopaths and must survive the terrors of Leatherface and his family.
A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.
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.
The recap of The Evil Dead (1981) includes a shot where the "evil force" runs through the cabin and rams into Ash. When this shot was filmed, Bruce Campbell suffered a broken jaw when Sam Raimi (who was operating the camera) crashed into him with a bicycle - or so people were led to believe. This was a story concocted by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell as a gag to see how many people would believe it actually happened. 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 »
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.
