Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn


Legend has it that it was written

by the Dark Ones.

'Necronomicon Ex Mortes'.

Roughly translated,

'Book of the Dead'.

The book served as a passageway

to the evil worlds beyond.

lt was written long ago, -

- when the seas ran red with blood.

This blood was used to ink the book.

ln the year 1300 A.D.

the book disappeared.


- So, what's this pIace Iike?

- It's a IittIe rundown, but...

- It's right up in the mountains.

- Are you sure it's converted?

I think so.

What do you think, kid?

I Iove it, Ash.

I feeI funny about being here.

What if the owners come home?

- We'II teII them the car broke down.

- With your car, they'd beIieve it.

What about some champagne, baby?

After aII, I'm a man and you're

a woman. At Ieast, the Iast time.

- There's a tape recorder here.

- See what's on it.

This is Professor Raymond Knowby,

log entry number two.

l believe l made a signifiicant find

in the castle of Kandar.

Having journeyed there with my wife,

my daughter and Prof. Gatly, -

- it was in the rear chamber that we

stumbled upon something remarkable.

'Naturum de Monto',

the Book of the Dead.

We brought the book here,

where l could study it undisturbed.

Here l began the translations. The

book speaks of a spiritual presence.

A thing of evil that

roams the forests.

Through recitation of the book,

this spirit is given license -

- to possess the living.

Here are the pronunciations

of those passages.

Kanda. Estrata. Amantos...



They're gone.

The sun's driven them away.

For now...

Better puII out of here

before nightfaII.

Join us!

Oh, my God!

I gotta get a grip on myseIf here.

Thank you.


How did the expedition go?

Great. I found the pages

of the Book of the Dead.

- What condition are they in?

- Take a Iook.

They haven't aged in 3,000 years.

When do we begin transIations?

Tonight. Is it aII set with my father?

I haven't spoken with him in a week.

There's no phone in the cabin.

It'II take an hour to get there.

You hinted that your father was

onto something with his transIation.

- What has he found?

- ProbabIy nothing.

But just possibIy,

the doorway to another worId.

You tricked me.

Yeah, just...

HeIIo, Iover.

Work shed.

Even now we have

your darIing Linda's souI, -

- she suffers in torment.

You're going down.


PIease, Ash.

PIease, don't hurt me.

You swore that we'd aIways

be together. I Iove you.

Yes! Your Iove was a Iie.

And now she burns in heII.

I'm fine...

I'm fine.

I don't think so. We just cut up

our girIfriend with a chainsaw.

Does that sound fine?

You bastards!

You dirty bastards!

Give me back my hand.

Give me back my hand!

Excuse me.

Excuse me...

Is this the road to the Knowby cabin?

- That's right. And you ain't going.

- And why not?

There must be another way in.

A road or something.

Sure ain't no road.

Why the heII

do you want to go there?

None of your business.

I just remembered...

There is a traiI.

- You couId foIIow Bobby Joe and me.

- Sounds aII right.

- But it'II cost you.

- How much?

TeII you what:
You take my bags

and you got a deaI.


That's right.

Who's Iaughing now?

Who's Iaughing now?

Jesus Christ. I thought she was

taIking about them IittIe bags.

Here's your new home.

You son of a...

Gotcha, didn't I, you IittIe sucker?

I'II bIow your butts to Kingdom Come!

See if we don't...

- Hit him!

- You dirty bastard.

- You gonna be aII right, honey?

- I don't know. I think so.

Sit stiII for a minute.

You know this son of a bitch?

- We thought our father wouId be here.
