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.
