The Evil Dead

The Evil Dead is a 1981 American supernatural horror film written and directed by Sam Raimi and executive produced by Raimi and Bruce Campbell, who starred alongside Ellen Sandweiss and Betsy Baker. The film focuses on five college students vacationing in an isolated cabin in a remote wooded area. After they find an audio tape that, when played, releases a legion of demons and spirits, members of the group suffer from demonic possession, leading to gory mayhem. Raimi and the cast produced the short film Within the Woods as a "prototype" to build the interest of potential investors, which secured US$90,000 to produce The Evil Dead; the film was shot on location in a remote cabin located in Morristown, Tennessee, in a difficult filming process that proved uncomfortable for the cast and crew. The low-budget horror film attracted the interest of producer Irvin Shapiro, who helped screen the film at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival. Horror author Stephen King gave a rave review of the film, which helped convince New Line Cinema to serve as its distributor.

It grossed $2.4 million in a total of $2.7 million worldwide. Both early and critical reception were universally positive and in the years since its release, The Evil Dead has developed a reputation as one of the most significant cult films, cited among the greatest horror films of all time and one of the most successful independent films; the Evil Dead launched the careers of Campbell and Raimi, who collaborated on several films together, including Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. The film spawned a media franchise, beginning with two sequels written and directed by Raimi, Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness, as well as video games, comic books, a television series; the film's protagonist Ash Williams is regarded as a cult icon. The fourth film, serving as a soft reboot and continuation, was titled Evil Dead and was released in 2013. Raimi co-produced the franchise producer, Robert Tapert; as with the films, the follow-up television series Ash vs Evil Dead was created and produced by Sam and Ivan Raimi, with Campbell executive producing.

Five Michigan State University students—Ash Williams, his girlfriend, Linda. Approaching the cabin, the group notices the porch swing move on its own but stop as Scott grabs the doorknob. While Cheryl draws a picture of a clock, the clock stops, she hears a faint, demonic voice tell her to "Join us", her hand becomes possessed, turns pale and draws a picture of a book with a demonic face on its cover. Although shaken, she does not mention the incident; when the cellar trapdoor flies open during dinner, Shelly and Cheryl remain upstairs as Ash and Scott investigate. They find the Naturan Demanto, a Sumerian version of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, along with an archaeologist's tape recorder. Scott and Ash take them upstairs. Scott plays a tape of incantations. Cheryl yells for Scott to turn off the tape recorder, a tree branch breaks one of the cabin's windows; that evening, an agitated Cheryl goes into the woods to investigate strange noises. She gets attacked, pinned to the ground, raped by demonically possessed trees.

When she manages to escape and returns to the cabin bruised and anguished, Ash agrees to take her back into town, only to discover that the bridge to the cabin has been destroyed. Cheryl panics as she realizes that they are now trapped and the demonic entity will not let them leave. Back at the cabin, Ash listens to more of the tape, learning that the only way to kill the entity is to dismember a possessed host; as Linda and Shelly play Spades, Cheryl calls out the cards, succumbs to the entity, levitates. In a raspy, demonic voice, she demands to know why they disturbed her sleep and threatens to kill everyone. After she falls to the floor, the group checks on her. Scott locks her inside. Everyone fights about. Shelly becomes paranoid upon seeing Cheryl's demonic transformation, she lies down in her room but is drawn to look out of her window, where a demon crashes through and attacks her. Shelly scratches Scott's face. Scott throws her into the fireplace burning Shelly's face; as she attacks him again, Scott bisects part of her wrist with a knife and she bites off her own mangled hand.

Scott stabs her in the back with a Sumerian dagger killing her. When she reanimates, Scott buries the remains. Shaken by the experience, he leaves to find a way back to town, he shortly returns mortally wounded. When Ash checks on Linda, he is horrified to find, she attacks him. Unwilling to dismember her, he buries her instead, she attacks him, forcing him to decapitate her with a shovel. Her headless body bleeds on his face as it tries to rape him, but he pushes it off and retreats to the cabin. Back inside, Ash is attacked by Cheryl, who has escaped the cellar, the reanimated Scott, he shoots Cheryl several times, gouges Scott's eyes out, pulls out a branch lodged in Scott's stomach, causing him to bleed out. The Deadites attack and beat Ash with a fire iron. Ash throws the Naturan Demanto into the fireplace, the Deadites stop their attack; as the book burns, Scott and the book gruesomely decompose. Demonic hands protrude from both corpses, Cheryl's decomposed body falls and splatters in front of Ash, l

Next Madrilenian regional election

The next Madrilenian regional election will be held no than Sunday, 28 May 2023, to elect the 12th Assembly of the Community of Madrid. All 132 seats in the Assembly will be up for election; the Assembly of Madrid is the devolved, unicameral legislature of the autonomous community of Madrid, having legislative power in regional matters as defined by the Spanish Constitution and the Madrilenian Statute of Autonomy, as well as the ability to vote confidence in or withdraw it from a regional president. Voting for the Assembly is on the basis of universal suffrage, which comprises all nationals over eighteen, registered in the Community of Madrid and in full enjoyment of their political rights. Additionally, Madrilenians abroad are required to apply for voting before being permitted to vote, a system known as "begged" or expat vote. All members of the Assembly of Madrid are elected using the D'Hondt method and a closed list proportional representation, with a threshold of five percent of valid votes—which includes blank ballots—being applied regionally.

Parties not reaching the threshold are not taken into consideration for seat distribution. The Assembly is entitled to one member per each 50,000 inhabitants or fraction greater than 25,000; the term of the Assembly of Madrid expires four years after the date of its previous election. Elections to the Assembly are fixed for the fourth Sunday of May every four years; the previous election was held on 26 May 2019, setting the election date for the Assembly on Sunday, 28 May 2023. The president has the prerogative to dissolve the Assembly of Madrid and call a snap election, provided that no motion of no confidence is in process, no nationwide election is due and some time requirements are met: namely, that dissolution does not occur either during the first legislative session or within the legislature's last year ahead of its scheduled expiry, nor before one year has elapsed since a previous dissolution. In the event of an investiture process failing to elect a regional president within a two-month period from the first ballot, the Assembly shall be automatically dissolved and a fresh election called.

Any snap election held as a result of these circumstances will not alter the period to the next ordinary election, with elected deputies serving out what remains of their four-year terms. The table below shows the status of the different parliamentary groups in the Assembly at the present time; the electoral law allows for parties and federations registered in the interior ministry and groupings of electors to present lists of candidates. Parties and federations intending to form a coalition ahead of an election are required to inform the relevant Electoral Commission within ten days of the election call, whereas groupings of electors need to secure the signature of at least 0.5 percent of the electorate in the Community of Madrid, disallowing electors from signing for more than one list of candidates. Below is a list of the main parties and electoral alliances which will contest the election: The table below lists voting intention estimates in reverse chronological order, showing the most recent first and using the dates when the survey fieldwork was done, as opposed to the date of publication.

Where the fieldwork dates are unknown, the date of publication is given instead. The highest percentage figure in each polling survey is displayed with its background shaded in the leading party's colour. If a tie ensues, this is applied to the figures with the highest percentages; the "Lead" column on the right shows the percentage-point difference between the parties with the highest percentages in a given poll. When available, seat projections are displayed below the voting estimates in a smaller font. 67 seats are required for an absolute majority in the Assembly of Madrid. Opinion poll sources Other
