Cult legend Bruce Cambell stars as Ash Williams, the incompetent, mid-20’s employee of S-Mart (Shop smart. Shop S-Mart!) Whose trip away with his friends and girlfriend Linda turns into a deadlight disaster when they stumble across the Book of the Dead, unleashing evil spirits which possess the living.
