Return to the Trip Overview

Evil Dead:
Can you say "Kandarian Demons?" Or "ancient funereal rites?" Or "Necronomicon ex mortis?" I've been told I have read too much Lovecraft or seen too many horror films. Whatever. But I was on edge every second I was there. I was on an isolated island, staying in an old cabin in the woods. Could the set up for attack by the undead be any more obvious? I searched that place carefully, and I am telling you that if I found a trap door to a root cellar in one of the rooms, man, I would have spent the night in the canoe.

(And yes, while we were there I did find some pages from an ancient religious text. While they were just some passages from the Bible left by some well-meaning evangelist, there was no way I was going to read those lines aloud. Not in a secluded cabin, not at night, and certainly not without a tool shed properly stocked with a chain saw or shotgun.)
