Main Plot

Five friends travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons.


  • Bruce Campbell's character, Ash Williams, is the main protagonist who battles against a group of demonic spirits in a cabin.
  • Ellen Sandweiss's character plays a pivotal role in The Evil Dead as she is possessed by a demonic spirit.
  • Richard DeManincor's character, Scotty, is one of the friends who becomes possessed by evil forces while staying at a cabin.


In the ending of The Evil Dead, Ash survives the nightmarish ordeal in the cabin. As he tries to escape, he is attacked by demonic forces. In a last-ditch effort, he retrieves the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis and recites an incantation to banish the evil. However, the ritual backfires and sends Ash hurtling back in time. He lands in medieval times, where he is greeted by an army of knights, setting the stage for the sequel, Army of Darkness.
