Continuity mistake: When Ash leaves the workshed after cutting up Linda he only locks the door to the workshed with the chain, later on he goes into it and unlocks the chain and the piece of wood. (00:22:20 - 01:06:20)

Continuity mistake: In one scene, Ash finds some pages from the Necronomicon lying in a mud puddle. He picks up the pages, and they're dry. (01:10:00)

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)

Trivia: When Ash is possessed of the evil presence and beats up the girl, he throws her on the couch and chuckles evilly (or hornily, same dif). He is stopped from committing further molestation by the sight of that ugly piece of jewelry that he gave to Linda earlier. When the necklace gets a closeup, the chain forms the outline of a skull.
