Ash - the sole survivor of the original 'Evil Dead' - returns with his girlfriend Linda to the remote cabin in the woods. He discovers a tape recorder that a professor had used to record incantations from the Necronomicon XMortis - the Book of the Dead. When he turns it on, the recording releases a dark, sinister force from the woods. It turns Linda into a zombie, her soul possessed by some hideous demon, and then tries to do the same to Ash. Other people come to help Ash, but one by one they are taken over by the Evil Dead force that also possesses Linda, the Professor, and the Professor's wife...and they try to make sure Ash is...Dead by Dawn!

- Annie: The first passage will allow the demon to manifest itself in the flesh. Ash: Why the hell would we want to do that?
Ash: You're goin' down. Chainsaw.
Ash: [talking to mirror] I'm fine... I'm fine... [Mirror Ash jumps out of the mirror and grabs Ash] Mirror Ash: I don't think so. We just cut up our girlfriend with a chainsaw. Does that sound "fine"?
[upon gaining the chain saw in place of his lost right hand] Ash: Groovy.
Ash: [for no apparent reason] ... Groovy.
- One of the books on the can that traps Ash's possessed hand is "A Farewell to Arms".
Director Cameo: [Sam Raimi] the first Medieval knight to raise his sword and give his speech before hailing to Ash.
Professor Knowby's dead wife is said to be in the "fruit cellar," a reference to Psycho (1960).
Ash's chainsaw appears to switch hands in one scene. This is because Sam Raimi decided Ash should walk the opposite way across the room in that scene, so he flipped the negative.
Often considered to be a remake of The Evil Dead (1981), however this is not accurate. The rights to show scenes from the original could not be obtained to re-cap what happened, so they recreated the beginning to explain how Ash got to the cabin, a headless Linda, etc.
