“Why have you disturbed our sleep; awakened us from our ancient slumber?” – Possessed Cheryl before she goes into full levitation, stabby mode in Evil Dead (1981).
Given how hilarious Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness are (not to mention the recent Ash Vs. Evil Dead TV series which all sorts of glorious), you may forget that Evil Dead is actually terrifying!
Most quotes of the day here are smart or funny. This one is neither. This is just flat out scary.
This whole scene remains the best one. Linda and Shelley are playing around with a deck of cards, doing ESP tests (with one of Linda guessing the next card and Shelley tricking her by pretending she’s right). This is all fun and games until Cheryl, who is recovering after a particularly bad time out in woods, starts guessing them while looking out of the window. Correctly.
She then turns around, freaks everyone out and stabs Linda with a pencil.
Not for the faint of heart AT ALL.
