In the third film of "The Evil Dead" series, our gun-toting, chainsaw-handed hero, Ash, has been transported to the 13th century where he has been prophesied as the one who will find the Necronomicon, the Book of the Dead, and deliver the people from the terrors of the Deadites, who quest for the book, too. But he is mistaken as a spy from a rival kingdom and forced to fight two Deadites before the people find out what he is here for. He also falls for a woman named Sheila before he searches for the book. But after finding it, he says the wrong words that will allow the wise men to use the book to send him back and stop the Deadites and accidentally awakens the Army of the Dead, led by his clone, Evil Ash. Now, Ash must use his 20th century wits and skills to beat Evil Ash and his army of skeletons.

- Trapped in time. Surrounded by evil. Low on gas
- 1 Man, 1 Million dead, The odds are just about even.
- They move. They breathe. They suck.
- Sound the trumpets, Raise the drawbridge, and drop the Oldsmobile
- How can you destroy an army that's already dead?
- In an age of darkness. At a time of evil. When the world needed a hero. What it got was him.
- Ash: It's a trick. Get an axe.
Sheila: I may be bad... but I feel gooood.
Ash: Yeah! [after shooting King Arthur's sword in half] Ash: Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
[first lines] [opening monologue] Ash: My name is Ash and I am a slave. As far as I can figure, the year is thirteen hundred A.D and I'm being dragged to my death. It wasn't always like this, I had a real life, once. A job. Ash: [now Ash is in a flashback] Umm... Hardware aisle twelve, shop smart, shop S-Mart! Ash: [back to monologue] I had a wonderful girlfriend Linda. Together we drove to a small cabin in the mountains. It seems an archeologist had come to this remote place to translate and study his latest find: Necronomiconexmortis. The Book of the Dead. Bound in human flesh and inked in blood, this ancient Samarian text contained bizarre burial rights, funeral incantations, and demon resurrection passages, it was never meant for the world of the living. The book awoke something dark in the woods, something evil. [something crashes through the window of the cabin and Linda screams] Ash: It took Linda. Then it came after me, it got into my hand and it went bad, so I lopped it off at the wrist. [Ash is seen cutting off his hand] Ash: But that didn't stop it, it came back big time. Ash: [Ash gets pulled into the vortex holding onto the doorway] For God's sake how do you stop it? [Ash falls into the vortex and the opening credits start]
Duke Henry: You Sir, are not one of my vassals... who are you? Ash: Who wants to know? Duke Henry: I am Henry the Red. Duke of Shale, Lord of the Northlands and leader of its peoples. Ash: Well hello Mister Fancypants. Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things, right now: Jack and shit... and Jack left town.
- An issue of the magazine "Fangoria" can be seen in the car's trunk.
The magic words Ash must use to claim the Book of the Dead are "Clatto Verata Nicto" - a reference to "Klaatu, Barada, Nikto", the words used to command the robot Gort in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951).
Cameo: [Bridget Fonda] As Linda.
Cameo: [Ted Raimi] at least four characters: The cowardly warrior who doesn't want to die, the man who shouts "you can count on my steel", the swordsman with an eye-patch and the S-mart's store clerk.
Director Trademark: [Sam Raimi] [shemp] Don Campbell and Charlie Campbell, father and brother of Bruce Campbell.
