Evil Dead II

Continuity mistake: When Ash is crawling through the cellar, he finds some of the pages, and he holds them in his right hand. Only problem is, he cut off his right hand earlier and attached the chainsaw to it - the film was flipped so he'd appear to be crawling in the right direction. (01:06:15)

Continuity mistake: When the hillbilly is killed by Henrietta, blood is spraying everywhere, and Annie is totally drenched by it, but in the next shot, she is totally clean except for the one blood stain mentioned on this mistake page. (01:03:30)

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)

Continuity mistake: During the first scene where the "evil force" is chasing Ash through the house, you can see above the rafters, showing that this is not actually the house but a set. (00:12:50)

Continuity mistake: After the hillbilly is killed by the Henrietta deadite Annie has a blood stain on her left shoulder. Then she runs into Evil Ash and it has switched to her right shoulder. (01:03:40)

Continuity mistake: When Ash is driving along in his car he has a muddy face, and he wipes some off with a rag, but still leaves a fair amount of dirt on. In the next shot when he gets out the car his face is spotless. (00:10:20)

Continuity mistake: When Ash is thrown into the cellar he breaks a few of the steps. Later when he goes in to retrieve the pages of the Necronomicon every step is intact. (00:38:30 - 01:08:10)

Continuity mistake: When Annie grabs Ash while he is lying on the floor you see lots of blood getting all over Annie's right shirt sleeve. Later on her shirt is totally clean. (00:36:20 - 00:37:30)

Continuity mistake: There are 5 different colours of blood used throughout the movie. Ash always gets soaked by blood (either chopping Linda's head up, or hacking Professor Noble to pieces), but always ends up dry in the next shot. [The reason why there are 5 types of blood: The creators wanted to get an R rating instead of NC-17, so they used different colors for slime instead of blood. It failed, they got an NC-17 rating and then released it independently with a non-rated rating.] (00:22:00 - 00:45:30)

Continuity mistake: When the evil force is speeding towards the cabin door, when the trees are attacking the cabin, the shotgun holes in the door are missing. During alot of the film the holes change size/shape too. (01:12:30)

Continuity mistake: When Henrietta is attacking Ash, the clock in the background alternates from reading 1:15 or 1:30. (01:09:00)

Continuity mistake: When deadite Linda first pops up outside the window in front of Ash her hair is in a bun, but the view changes and her hair is down. (00:18:30)

Continuity mistake: During the movie, you can see that the metal handle of the chainsaw switches between being thin and thick. This is because they had replaced the handle half way through the shoot and had just painted the regular one silver and brown.

Continuity mistake: Ash's shirt is untucked as he listens to the tape, but when he runs into the room after Linda screams, his shirt is suddenly tucked in. (00:03:15 - 00:05:20)
