He has since been captured by patrolling knights who believe him to be an enemy and, after being stripped of his signature shotgun and chainsaw, driven with other captured prisoners back to the castle proper. There follows one of the best scenes in cult history, but I won't spoil it here.
Instead of the frightened character who was pretty much in the hands of the ghouls , Ash is a complete jerk bad-ass who does whatever he intends to.
It still has it's nods to the original Evil Dead, but if you're looking for the ultimate horror experience, then this film is not for you. Instead Darkness is full of comedic dialogue and actions.
