The Evil Dead (1981)
Ash Williams and his four college friends travel through the Michigan hills to a secluded cabin in the woods for a quiet getaway. It’s supposed to be a fun weekend. The place is dusty and decrepit but livable, and the group plans to make the most of it. If there is one common denominator in horror, it’s that nothing can get in the way of kids having a good time… until something does. In the basement of this cabin is a secret book left behind by dead occupants. Also with this book is a tape recorder with words that will unleash hell and bring the fun to a screeching halt. On September 1st, witness the start of one of the most iconic franchises in your favorite film genre in this bloody classic horror movie from Newline Cinema.
Evil Dead II (1987)
Ash Williams returns in this Sam Raimi classic that is even crazier than the first. After a brief and edited retelling of the previous installment, Ash’s fight for survival has only just begun as the forces of evil block his escape from the Michigan mountains. The story you already know is continued in a bloodier, sillier fashion as new problems emerge for the hero to face in this movie sequel. After fighting off his headless neuromorphic lover, Ash must battle the evil within himself. As night falls, the power of the Necronomicon threatens to possess him as well. Is he strong enough to overcome this influence? This time around, he is joined by Annie Knowby, a newcomer with pages from the Necronomicon that could be the key to their survival. Witness Ash and the evil dead in the most iconic film in this hilarious and bloody saga.
Army of Darkness (1992)
In this third and final installment of the Evil Dead film series, things get crazier than ever. Picking up where the previous movie left off, Ash is dropped in 13th century England. He is immediately captured by Lord Arthur and forced, yet again, to fight for his life. To make it back to his time, Ash must travel across unfamiliar terrain to find the Necronomicon, the very bane of his existence. Once it is within reach, he need only recite the incantation given to him to safely return to Lord Arthur’s castle and find his way home. But, in typical Evil Dead fashion, things go horribly wrong. Now Ash faces his greatest challenge, a literal army of darkness led by his neuromorphic clone. But this time, he is not alone. Before the night falls, Ash must rally a kingdom behind him to fend off the forces of evil one last time to conclude this legendary trilogy.

When the device is unexpectedly activated, the only man to see through the hole is severely traumatized by what he sees. Through strange visions and recovered evidence, the crew begins to piece together what had happened to the previous passengers.
