Evil Dead II

Evil Dead II (1987)

Ending / spoiler

(1 vote)

Annie dies, but not before sending the evil dead back into the past...alas Ash (still the only survivor out of this particular party) is sucked in as well and left stranded somewhere in the Middle Ages.

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)

Linda: Sure.
Ash: After all, I'm a man and you're a woman... At least last time I checked. Huh huh.

Trivia: The person wearing the Henrietta costume is Sam Raimi's brother Ted Raimi. Ted Raimi can also be seen in Army of Darkness as the S-Mart clerk in the U.S. ending, and in Ash's pep talk to fight the army of the dead.

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.
