The Evil Dead

Continuity mistake: At dinner, Cheryl starts pouring a drink. It cuts and she's now suddenly unwrapping foil.

Hamster

Visible crew/equipment: When the cellar door 'opens itself' look very close, and for a few seconds you can see the arm of a crew member pushing up the cellar door, then quickly pulling their arm back down.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Ash is about to cut Linda with the chainsaw, you get a close up of her necklace, and it is visible, just under her neck. But in the next wide shot, the necklace is further down on top of her dress.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Ash gets blood splattered over his face, covering it entirely (when Evil Cheryl explodes.) Then in the next shot the blood is just partially dripping down his face.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Scotty honks, and the two guys on the side of the street wave their arms, the window of the car is suddenly open (it was closed before, as can be seen by the reflection) and then again is suddenly closed.

Revealing mistake: When Ash shoots Cheryl through the door in the head, you can clearly see the hose (not an artery) that's squirting out the blood.

Visible crew/equipment: When the people are driving over the bridge at the start, it goes to a shot of the front of the car. To the right of the car you can see a crew member holding a still camera.

Continuity mistake: The actors' haircuts change a few times. This is noticeable when Scotty pulls back the bath curtain, and his hair is rather long and thick, but when he turns around, his hair is much shorter. Also, Linda's hair is short and wavy, but when she turns evil and she and Ash are fighting outside, her hair is very curly.

Hamster

Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning when Ash is walking up to the door for the first time you can see the shadow of a boom mike on the back of the swing.

Continuity mistake: In several scenes Ash is completely covered in blood yet seconds later he is almost totally clean.

Continuity mistake: Evil Shelley wears red and white patterned socks as we see when Scotty pulls her out from the fireplace. Later when Scotty is dismembering her with the axe, he hits her ankles, and the socks are now all-red, thick, woolly socks which are longer in length too.

Hamster

Audio problem: When their car is making a sharp turn at the beginning of the film, you can hear the tires screeching. This could only happen if they were on concrete, not on a dirt road.

Continuity mistake: The clock in living room of the cabin shows 5:52p (approx.) at the time it stops toward the beginning of the film. At the point that Scott is "re-animated" and attacks Ash in the climactic scene, it shows 3:10 until it restarts at the very end. This change is NOT accounted for by the clock running backwards as Ash is coming up from the cellar with the shotgun shells as the next shot of the clock shows it to again be at 5:52.

Continuity mistake: The design on the box that contains the necklace changes when Ash gives it to his girlfriend.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: After the recently possessed Cheryl stabs Linda in the ankle with a pencil, she draws back her arm to attack again and her wrist is grabbed by Ash to prevent her from doing so. The shot of the stabbing shows the pencil to be covered with blood,but in the close-up of her being stopped by Ash, no blood on the pencil. The pencil is bloody again in the shot of Cheryl coming after Ash after having tossed him and Linda aside.

Revealing mistake: When Ash is exploring the basement, he only has a lantern that would cast a flickering yellow light for illumination. Instead, all of the basement is lit with strong, steady white light, awfully like stage lights...

Phoenix

Continuity mistake: The purple bruise on Ash's face near the end of the movie goes from very large to small, and changes from light to dark throughout shots.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Evil Shelley scratches Scotty's face, you can see her fingernails are very long. But when Shelley and Scotty are fighting by the fireplace, notice that in some shots her fingernails are much shorter, and in other shots they have totally disappeared.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Cheryl is trying to get in the front door, and Ash is pushing against it, Cheryl manages to get her hand in the door. Ash hits it with the end of his gun, which gets blood all over the side of the door and the wall. But in the next shot, the blood has vanished.

Revealing mistake: In all the nighttime scenes in the woods where the moon is shown, you can see the clear edges of the matte they used to show the moon. The color of the entire woods set is almost black except for the navy blue "rectangle" around the moon.

Trivia

When Ash is in the cellar, a poster for Wes Craven's film "Hills Have Eyes" is hung on the wall. Wes then repaid the compliment in "Nightmare on Elm Street" by having "Evil Dead" playing on the television in Nancy's room, when she is trying not to sleep.
