Evil Dead Franchise And Timeline Expained + How To Kill A Deadite? Evil Dead Future Explored!

Depending on the movies you have watched as an impressionable child, you either know Sam Raimi for the Toby Maguire-starring Spiderman trilogy or the supernatural horror/comedy – The Evil Dead trilogy. The 1981 classic Evil Dead was the first movie Sam Raimi directed that he was credited for. It was a dream come true for him, and he even dropped out of college to shoot the film. He was not even 20 when he collected the funds for his Evil Dead movie and started shooting.

Evil Dead introduced us to the evil entities that come out of the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, or the Book of the Dead, after reading the book aloud. These entities who once ruled the world can possess the living and the dead. They impart supernatural strength to those they possess and can live even if their host is decapitated.

But the real legend that the franchise has bestowed upon us is the one and only Bruce Campbell. It’s near impossible to forget his acting in the first two part of the Evil Dead trilogy. The movie embraced its comedic elements, and Bruce went all out with his expressions. It was his facial acting that accentuates the movie to a whole new level and keeps people hooked. And the special effects mahn, it was cheap, but it was phenomenal, in the way it was used.

In this video, we’ll talk about fictional creatures of the movies: Deadites. Who are they? Where they come from? And how to kill them? We’ll also talk about all Evil Dead movies and the TV series, and what’s in the store for the franchise in the future. Having said that let’s not forget that there has been a multitude of Evil Dead stories in movies, comics, and video games, the lore has some common aspects but vastly differs from each other. We’ll stick to the movies and the TV series for consistency so that we can tell one coherent lore.

Ready? Let’s begin, this going to be a big video, so get something drink and eat!
