Physical Description & AttritbutesEdit
In their source, Evil Dead, people who have become possessed by a demonic or evil spirit, transforming them into an undead monstrosity. The anatomy of a possessed person alters slightly after becoming possessed, with teeth growing sharper and eyes turning pale and skin decaying slightly. The longer someone remains possessed by a demonic spirit, the more hideous the people turn in appearance. It is never revealed as to whether Deadites function this way in this movie as well.
A tape recording with verses from the necronomicon summons them.
They are a direct reference to the Deadites of the Evil Dead series.
