Rewind ArchiveThe screenplay was passed on by Universal Pictures and 20th Century Fox.
Rewind ArchiveA glove belonging to Freddy Krueger can be seen on the wall in the cabin. Sam Raimi did this to thank Wes Craven for showing the Evil Dead on the TV screen in Nancy's room in "A Nightmare on Elm Street". Wes Craven did that to thank Raimi for having a "Hills Have Eyes" poster on the wall in the Evil Dead.
Rewind ArchiveWhen Ash is possessed a second time, the necklace on the floor is laid out in the shape of a skull.
Thanks to Joe GariffoSam Raimi decided to change the blood from red to all sorts of colors to help the movie get an R rating. It didn't work and the film was released unrated.

Thanks to Phantom PlanetSam Raimi went on to direct a third chapter in the Evil Dead series called Army of Darkness, in which our smart mouthed, chainsaw wielding hero Ash fights for his life against an army of medieval 'Deadites.' Sam Raimi has repeatedly stated that he would like to do a fourth installment and it has been reported that he is going to start writing the script.
Rewind ArchiveDuring some of the production the crew stayed in the same house Steven Spielberg used to film 'The Colour Purple'.
Rewind ArchiveBetsy Baker, who played Linda in the original film, was asked to reprise her role but couldn't because she was pregnant.
Rewind ArchiveOriginal script was subtitled "Army Of Darkness" as Raimi intended to focus on Ash's medieval adventure but couldn't arouse enough funding. Raimi made sure the 2nd movie finished in the 1300s to setup this possibility in future.
Thanks to EvilAshAsh's car in both Evil Dead movies is the same make and model as Peter Parker's uncle's car in the Spiderman movie. The original car belonged to Sam Raimi and he tries to use the same make and model in all his movies when possible.
Thanks to Mark DuttonWhen the film failed to secure an R rating, producer Dino De Laurentiis used a dummy company called 'Rosebud International' to distribute it. Sam Raimi filmed the logo sequence and used the same 'buzzing fly' sound effect used in the original movie.
