In The Evil Dead, Ash gives his girlfriend Linda a necklace prior to the first deadite incident in the cabin. At the end of the movie he used Linda's necklace to grab the Necronomicon Ex Mortis while he was pinned down by the deadites of his friends. In Evil Dead II, it causes the deadite Ash to remember his friends and how much pain the deadites had given him, turning Ash back to normal.
The Evil Dead
The necklace was purchased from a Michigan jewelry store called Corey's Jewel Box. It is silver with a small magnifying glass inset. During production, the original was misplaced and a gold substitute painted silver had to be used. In Raimi's originally conceived idea for the climax of the film the magnifying glass portion of the necklace catching the light of the rising sun would have made Ash realize he needed to burn the Necronomicon.
Ash vs. Evil Dead
In the last episode of Ash vs Evil Dead Season Three when brandy and ash are in the sewer Ash gives Brandy this as a present he said it always kept him safe from harm and give him the courage he needed whenever he would fight the deadites brandy accepted it but unbeknownst to her, Ash gives his girlfriend Linda this necklace prior to the first deadite incident in the cabin. At the end of the episode as he says goodbye to brandy this is one of the 5 things he looks at before the ambulance drives off.
- Corey's Jewel Box (before being bought)
- Ash (after being bought)
- Linda (prior to the first deadite incident in the cabin)
- Ash (after the first deadite incident in the cabin)
- Brandy (as a gift from ash to keep her safe)
In Evil Dead (remake) David gives his sister Mia a wooden charm necklace that looks suspiciously like the one Ash gave Linda. The charm does not serve any of the characters a practical purpose, however.
