After a trip to an old cabin in the woods with his girlfriend, Linda, goes wrong, Ashley Joanna Williams, better known as Ash, has no choice but to kill her when she is possessed by the Kandarian Demon, becoming an unlikely and reluctant hero as it falls to him, again and again, in both the past and present, to fight against the Evil Dead.
