Michigan native Ellen Sandweiss gained fame as one of the young cast members of Evil Dead (1981). She first began her association with Evil Dead (1981)'s director Sam Raimi and its star Bruce Campbell when she attended high school with them. Sandweiss appeared in some of Raimi's early Super 8 films, including Within the Woods (1978), the short film that Raimi and company used to interest investors in the feature-length version of Evil Dead (1981). Sandweiss went on to play Cheryl, the sister of Bruce Campbell's Ash character, in the legendary horror flick. Evil Dead (1981) was shot on a shoestring budget in Morristown, Tennessee, and it was a grueling production for all involved. When it was over, Sandweiss finished college and left her movie days behind her while Evil Dead (1981) amassed a tremendous cult following. On the twentieth anniversary of the film's release, Sandweiss and her fellow Evil Dead (1981) cast members Betsy Baker and Theresa Tilly began making public appearances under the name "Ladies of the Evil Dead". Soon after, Sandweiss made a return to horror films with a role in Satan's Playground (2006) which also starred another horror icon, Massacre au camp d'été (1983)'s Felissa Rose.
