'''NC (vo):''' Yeah, the support in both versions is pretty by-the-numbers. They both clearly exist just to be victims to either be killed off or possessed. When they get possessed, they're a lot of fun, each one with creative ways to look grotesque, gooey, and horrifying. But that still doesn't mean they have much personality before they're taken over.

'''Benny (vo):''' The closest was probably the brother in the second version, because he at least had a concern for his sister's mental health, which ties into the fear of his mental health as well. But we know he's not gonna go crazy.

'''NC (vo):''' There's also a clever trick where just before the blonde dies, the spirit leaves her body, meaning she can go back to normal. This is great for later when the brother has no idea if Mia being buried is the real Mia or not. But aside from that, the supporting cast doesn't offer that much and aren't really very memorable. The original ''Evil Dead'' has a huge advantage, though: it has a sense of humor. Because it does have a corny way of doing things that's both frightening and kinda funny, their performances can be a little more hammy and not seem out of place. In a weird way, their sometimes-awkward way of saying things helps them stand out more.
