— Mia (to Abomination Mia)
Mia is the fictional protagonist of the 2013 remake of Evil Dead. She is portrayed by Jane Levy. Her possessed self serves as the main antagonist.
She is the only survivor of the demon attack, having defeated the demons of the book.
Mia is in her early twenties. She also was at her mother's deathbed, as David was not able to make it due to a new job in Chicago. Mia posed as David when her mother mistook her for him, creating a tension between the siblings. The traumatic event of her mother dying had a serious emotional effect on Mia; it is possible that witnessing her mother's declining mental state contributed to her drug addiction. She is superstitious and believes in protection from otherworldly forces.
In Evil Dead, Mia, David, Olivia, Natalie, and Eric, go to Mia's parents' cabin in the woods. There, she decides to "play cold turkey" and dumps her heroin supply down the well. When suffering withdrawal effects, she smells something dead in the cabin, though no one else can seem to smell it. When the dog, Grandpa, begins to sniff the rug, they move it and find a bloodstained cellar door. In the cellar, Eric and David find dead cats hanging from the ceiling, and the Naturon Demonto (Book of the Dead) near a shotgun on the table. When Eric and David return upstairs, Mia admonishes them for bringing the book and the shotgun out of the basement.
When Eric reads a passage from the book, Mia sees a woman in a white dress calling her name in the woods. She runs inside, telling David and Olivia that she needs to get out of the cabin because she is going insane. Olivia tells her that they are not going to let her leave, because they think that she needs to stay in the cabin for a few days so that she can get clean, to which David agrees. Furious and feeling betrayed, she climbs out the bedroom window and hijacks Eric's car. Driving down the road, she sees the woman in white in her path, and swerves out of the way only to crash right into a swamp, knocking her out.
After regaining consciousness and escaping the wreck, she is chased by an unseen force and gets "raped" by trees that seem to be alive. Afterwards, David finds her curled up in front of an oak tree, scared out of her mind. Back at the cabin, she tells David that she thinks that there is an evil force in there with them, but everyone passes this off as an attempt to get out of the cabin because of withdrawal. Mia later burns herself badly in the shower by turning the hot water on full blast, fulfilling part of the Book's prophecy. David begins to drive her to a hospital, but is stopped when he finds that the road has become flooded by a river of fast moving water that is impossible to cross. Back at the cabin, Mia shoots David in the shoulder with a shotgun, seconds before the unseen force bursts through the cabin door and flies to Mia. She screams as a demonic voice (implied to be Cheryl Williams) taunts the group, and remarks "You're all going to die tonight" in multiple simultaneous voices before falling to the ground.
She then attacks Olivia and vomits a river of blood all over her face. Olivia throws her into the cellar and Eric locks her in. She later tricks Natalie into entering the cellar with her. The possessed Mia pins her to the cellar stairs and bites Natalie's left hand. Mia then proceeds to grab a box-cutter and splits her own tongue before kissing Natalie, but she is interrupted by David, who forces them apart. She then tells David, in voices other than her own, that Mia's soul is "being raped in hell", and David chains the cellar shut.
Later, Natalie's hand becomes evil and she grabs the electric knife in order to cut it off, but the possessed Mia tells her not to cut it off, only to cackle when she does it anyway. Afterwards, Eric tells David that once the evil consumes five souls, the sky will bleed once again, and the dark one shall rise from hell. He also telll him that the only way to save Mia's soul is to kill her, either by alive burial, bodily dismemberment, or purification by fire. David is reluctant at first, but eventually throws gasoline all over the cabin and lights a lighter, but Mia begins to sing a lullaby familiar to the sibling. David finds it impossible to kill her, so he goes down into the cellar to capture her, but she attacks him with the box-cutter, then shoves his head underwater and begins to drown him. Eric hits her over the head, saving David, but is stabbed by Mia's box-cutter, and he dies.
David buries Mia alive as Mia taunts him about his leaving her and their mother. Upon her death, David digs her up and proceeds to defibrillate her, seemingly unsuccessfully. David laments the loss of his sister and walks away; Mia, free from the possession, awakens and calls his name, and the siblings embrace. David tells her to wait at the car while he goes back inside to get the keys. Inside, he finds a picture of them and Eric and Olivia sitting on a couch happy. When David turns around however, he gets stabbed in the neck with a pair of pliers by a possessed Eric. Mia sees this and tries to get her brother out, but he pushes her out the door and locks it. Despite Mia's screams, David then shoots the canister of gasoline in the house, igniting the whole house with flames.
A grief-stricken Mia finds the buckthorn necklace that David had given her, but when she picks it up, it starts to rain blood, and a hand shoots up and grabs her wrist. Mia pulls away in fright as she witnesses The Abomination rising from the ground. Mia pulls away, and runs to the toolshed where she grabs a chainsaw. She then is pursued by the demon, and in the chase, the Abomination flips David's Jeep onto Mia's hand, forcing her to rip it off to escape. As the Abomination approaches, Mia picks up the chainsaw and shoves it in the Abomination's face, killing the demon. It sinks into the ground, and the blood rain stops. Mia picks up the buckthorn necklace and puts it on as she absorbs the recent events before limping away from the scene as dawn breaks over the blood-drenched woods.
- Mia's weapon of choice is found in the end, when she has to fight the demon. She chooses to use a chainsaw, which she shoves through the demon's head, killing it.
- Mia can be seen as a composite of both Ash and Cheryl Williams, however she shares more in common with Cheryl than she does with Ash, despite being the protagonist - both are the leading male's sisters, both are the first one to notice something is wrong, both get raped by the trees, both become posessed first and spend the majority of the film locked in the cellar and both stay as Deadites the longest. The similarites end as Cheryl is never unpossessed and is killed at the end of the original, wheras Mia's soul is saved and she becomes human again, surviving the final battle, where she becomes more like Ash.
