Continuity mistake: When Cheryl is running through the woods, she is wearing slippers that stay on up until she reaches the cabin door. However, in following shots, she is shown barefoot, and when Ash opens the door her foot is dirty as if she'd been running barefoot the whole time. (00:28:05 - 00:29:10)

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. (00:22:40)

Trivia: Raimi created the "shaky cam", a low budget version of the Steadicam, which he couldn't afford to use for filming. The camera was bolted to a 2x4 piece of wood, and two people held on to each end of the plank and ran through the woods with it. Producer Rob Tapert has said "We did a lot of tests with it, and we were actually very pleased with how it turned out. We never considered the shakiness a problem, we thought it showed the energy of the force behind it."
