Evil Dead II

Audio problem: It's quite obvious that all of the grunts and sounds of terror that Ash makes while his hand is attacking him in the kitchen are dubbed. (00:28:45)

Audio problem: After Linda's head is possessed and bites Ash's hand, as he's getting up and going to the work shed, his mouth doesn't move as he says the word "work-shed", and it is obvious that it is dubbed in. (00:28:55)

Audio problem: When Ash is struggling with Linda's head, he bangs it against several objects. At one point he slams the wall, which sounds like a large metal panel or piece of aluminum siding. The cabin is made of wood. (00:19:45)

Phoenix

Audio problem: When Ash is standing by the self-playing piano, it is clear that the keys being pushed are way out of sync with the music. (00:14:25)

Continuity mistake: No matter how many times Ash has blood poured on him or landed in mud, he will always have a clean face with his freshly made scars, scenes after he has been blood bathed or mud wrestled. (00:34:05)

Ash: There's something out there. That... That witch in the cellar is only part of it. It lives... Out in those woods, in the dark... Something... Something that's come back from the dead.

Trivia: In the last scene, after Ash has traveled back in time, a knight lifts his visor and shouts, "Hail he who has come from the skies to deliver us from the terrors of the Deadites." This knight is Sam Raimi, the director. The knight to his left is his brother Ted Raimi. (01:20:20)

More trivia for Evil Dead II

Question: If this movie is a sequel to the first Evil Dead, how come it only shows Ash and Linda driving up to the cabin and not the other friends? Also, why does it show Ash playing the recording and not Scotty, like in the first film?

Answer: Sam Rami could not get the footage of Evil Dead to use in the sequel, so he remade the movie in a shortened form for the beginning. Since Linda was the only original character other than Ash to come back he included her in the recap but deleted the others as not to waste time. An in universe answer could be that trauma of losing his friends made Ash block them out and rewrite history in his head, except for Linda who comes back to haunt him in the movie so he is forced to deal with it.
