All three "Evil Dead" films can be seamlessly cut together (which has been done by fans), though some introductory footage in the sequels is lost. See more »
At the beginning of the movie Ash is being chain-ganged using a wooden stocks that bind his wrists and his neck, each through a separate hole. However, although his right hand had been self-amputated at the wrist, he seems unable to free his arm by simply pulling the stump out through the restraining cuff. See more »
My name is Ash and I am a slave. Close as I can figure, the year is thirteen hundred A.D and I'm being dragged to my death. It wasn't always like this, I had a real life, once. A job.
[now Ash is in a flashback]
Umm... Hardware aisle twelve, shop smart, shop S-Mart!

I had a wonderful girlfriend Linda. Together we drove to a small cabin in the mountains. It seems an archeologist had come to this remote place to translate and study his latest find...

Ash can be heard laughing over the beginning of the credits in the original ending. See more »
Almost all deleted scenes are added into television versions of the movie, excluding some scenes in the final battle (BadAsh checking his hair as BadSheila picks her nails with a dagger, Arthur's repeated cries of "We are deserted!", and the death of Ted Raimi). This includes two excellent scenes cut from every version of the movie. At the beginning, as Arthur yells "To the pit!" the little bald guy with the whip (Gold Tooth) says "To the pit with the blackguard!" and charges Ash on his horse. Ash knocks him off the horse with his shotgun and is sucker-punched by Arthur, which Ash doesn't like, and knocks Arthur down. Arthur is shocked, but recovers to slap Ash's face lightly and order his men to "Secure the prisoner." They do. Another scene explains the mirror thing a little better, as Ash leaves the windmill to walk through an ominous forest, accidentally knocking into his horse. Saying "You big piece of hamburger, c'mere," he ties the horse down until seeing a duplicate of himself in the windmill's doorway, which then slams shut. He runs back into the windmill and smashes headfirst into a mirror. These scenes are included in VERY rough scratched-up form in the "director's cut" DVD/VHS, along with another scene in which Ash is captured by Henry's men, including Rob Tapert. Henry stops them from killing Ash and laughs, calling Ash "Mr. Fancypants." Ash convinces Henry to fight with him, saying "You owe me." There is also an alternate opening on the DVD which is much more horror-like, omitting the S-Mart material and including more "Evil Dead 2"-style footage. This matches with the "end of the world" ending, as Ash appears to have a beard (only his eyes are shown to avoid giving this away too much). See more »
Is the word Army Of Darkness ever said in the film?
After the ending to Evil Dead 2,Ash is Accidentally travel back in time to medieval and he must find a way to get back to his own time. This is in my opinion the best horror series, i personally think is better than The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, Friday the 13th,Nightmare On Elm Street, and etc.
I like the fact that each of them have their Genre. The first movie was a horror film with a little dark comedy, the second movie was a Horror/Comedy film, and the third movie is a Action/Adventure/Slapstick film.
Bruce Campbell is great, the effects are great, the soundtrack is great, and the pacing is great. I recommend seeing this film. BTW the alternate ending sucks in my Opinion.
