Dead was released in 1981, &
Evil Dead 2 in 1987.
There was a third installment as well (see movie trailer
below). In the original, a group of friends decide to rent a
backwoods cabin for the weekend. Snooping around
the house, they find an old book in the cellar, titled
"The Book of the Dead," and a tape recording.
After playing the tape from beginning to end, which
included an incantation for conjuring up demons, things
begin to get weird. One by one they become
possessed. Killing them requires complete dismemberment.
