Added DiffLines:
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first film is straight up low-budget horror. The rest of the franchise leans far more heavily on comedy, with Army of Darkness being straight up parody.

* DecapitationRequired: The only real way to kill a deadite outside of [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill total destruction of the body]] is to either decapitate it, (which will leave a rather pissed off severed head, but it's more effective than most things) or [[YourHeadAsplode completely obliterating it's head.]]

The first film's story follows a bunch of teens who get together in a cabin in Tennessee and play a tape recorded recitation from a demonic book of the dead (the {{Necronomicon}}) -- which leads to each of them becoming possessed and attacking the others. ''Film/EvilDead2'' is a partial sequel and a partial remake. Because Raimi was unable to use scenes from the original film[[note]]This was because the rights to the first two films were owned by separate companies, and it would've been too much of a hassle to get the rights to the original film's footage[[/note]], he turned the first act of the sequel into a quick, simplified version of the first film. In it, Ashley J. Williams survives the possession of his girlfriend and, along with some new arrivals, manages to fight back the evil demons possessing the house. This film leads straight into ''Army of Darkness''.

* AntiHero: Although Ash's characterization changes radically over the course of the franchise, he's never a traditional hero. In the first film he's just male FinalGirl. In the second, he goes a bit crazy and [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in badass]] by the end. In ''Army of Darkness'', he becomes a WrongGenreSavvy, wise-cracking, SmallNameBigEgo IdiotHero. Most adaptations use or expand upon this characterization.
