Ash and Pablo devise a plan to pull Brandy and Kelly out of the 'dead world' where demonic creatures drag victims to hell. The only problem is that, for the plan to work, Ash must die.
Episode 8 of season 3 goes for atmosphere over splatter, with much of the action taking place in the gloomy realm called dead world, which is a bit like Silent Hill crossed with The Upside Down. Unfortunately, the shadowy spirits that lurk there aren't all that scary and all too easy to outsmart, meaning that there is a distinct lack of tension.
Those that prefer their Evil Dead to be splashed with red will have to wait for a fun fight scene in Ash's hardware store between Pablo and a female deadite. Pablo uses a variety of tools to battle the demon, but his finishing move is quite inventive: he clamps her head in the paint tin shaker and hits the on switch, her head coming apart in a welter of gore.
6.5/10, rounded up to 7 for IMDb.
