>The Evil Dead
An original tale.
>Evil Dead II
A retelling of the first tale, but with new details added and a new ending. Why? Because.
>Army of Darkness: Evil Dead 3
We're in a different time now. Somehow it's all part of the same story, but how does it come together since time is already screwed up and probably multiple worlds have been created. So... the original tale was in one of the worlds?
A return to the first tale. New characters, new destinies. Repetition of fate with the recovery of the demon from the book in the cabin. Ash's story probably doesn't exist here, but he himself is present, or could be.
>Ash vs. Evil Dead
An attempt to combine Ash's stories into one. Probably just fanservice and not worthy of attention. Or takes place in one of the possible worlds.
>Evil Dead Rise
Again. It's not clear which timeline we're in. Did Evil Dead take place in this universe? Or Ash's story?
So... what the fuck is this all about? What the fuck is going on?
