More Trivia from The Evil Dead
Ash, Cheryl, Scotty, Linda, and Shelly are on vacation to a remote cabin in the woods. Located on the other side of an old, rotten bridge, the austere, run-down cabin is unusually cheap to rent.
While exploring in the cellar, the boys discover the Book of the Dead, bound in human skin and inked in human blood and a tape recording of an archaeologist describing his discovery of the ominous book. The recording also contains the incantation that supposedly conjures up demons and the boys allow it to play from beginning to end. That's when things start to get weird.
Cheryl is mysteriously drawn outside by strange voices whispering "join us..." While running around in the woods in her nightie, she's attacked by vines, which bind her to the ground, undress her, and have their way with her --Whatever a vine's way would be, that is.
She runs back inside, hysterical, and tries to get a skeptical Ash to drive her back to town, but the bridge is out. Just as her friends have convinced her that everything's okay, she is possessed by a demon, turning into a scaly, gray-skinned zombie with clouded, colorless eyes and a taste for human flesh.
The boys manage to trap her in the cellar, but they're by no means safe. Shelly's the next to be possessed, raking Scotty's face to bits with her fake nails. Luckily, Ash remembers the archaeologist's advice on how to destroy these demons, complete dismemberment.
He takes a chainsaw to his zombified friend, reducing her to a pile of quivering entrails, which they bury in the woods. Now it's only Scotty, Ash, and his girlfriend, Linda.
When Linda becomes possessed, she giggles madly and chants "we're gonna get you" in an eerie childlike voice. Ash can't bear to cut her up, since she's his girlfriend, so he buries her in one piece.
Despite being a little thin in the plot department, this cult/horror classic is still very funny and entertaining to watch. It's a great concept done without restraint that has thrilled young audiences for 20 years.
