It's surprising then, that although Evil Dead still doesn't quite hit the spot, it still turned out to be quite enjoyable. First and foremost, it's a straight rehash of the original. They don't even try to recast or reboot Ash Williams, and instead introduce five new characters and a new story. Mia is a drug addict, who is taken out into the woods by her three friends, and her older brother David, after she nearly dies from an overdose. While staying at their family cabin, one of their number disturbs the ancient Book of the Dead, inadvertently inviting demons to terrorise and possess them, and setting an apocalyptic ritual in motion.
