Corrected entry: When the army of the deadites arrives at the castle, Evil Ash says something along the lines of "Bring me forth into that castle." A few moments later, he says "Sally forth!" only not being able to say forth because of his decayed mouth, despite being able to say it only moments before.
Corrected entry: In the scene where mini-Ash is about to be stomped, he holds up a nail and although there is the sound of the nail going through the shoe of big Ash, you can see it never penetrates.
Corrected entry: Allegedly Sam Raimi bought at least ten Oldsmobiles to be used as stunt cars for this film, however, he still drove his original Oldsmobile to the set everyday. When filming the scene where Ash and his car crash land in the dark ages, Bruce Campbell and a few technicians swapped Raimi's Oldsmobile for the stand in that was to be hoisted up and dropped. Raimi never noticed until he'd shot the scene twice then walked onto the set to check if the car was still in good enough condition for a third take. Amazingly enough, it was.
Corrected entry: When Ash is running from the evil presence, before it has overtaken him, he stumbles and falls a few times. At one time he jumps over a fallen log. When this happens, the camera (evil presence) breaks through a tree stump to come after him. If you watch in slow motion, or are very observant, you will see that there is a kabuki mask inside the stump. Must be some crew-members idea of a joke.
Corrected entry: One of the deadites who Ash fights in the pit is crushed by the spike walls. After Ash gets out, no one ever opens the spike walls. So how does the deadite emerge from the pit? (00:15:20 - 00:18:50)
Corrected entry: During the castle scene, when the monster gets shot, he falls down and you can hear water splash, but you never see the guards open the spiked walls with the mechanism they use to start it up. (00:19:00)
Corrected entry: During the final showdown between Ash and Bad Ash, Bad Ash tosses a dagger at Ash. The way he flings it, it seems to land sideways at his feet, but a camera cut shows it to stab the stone beneath Ash as he rolls to the side.
Corrected entry: When Ash first uses his shotgun in the castle, he never reloads it. He manages to fire at least 4 shots out of a double barreled gun. (00:21:40)
Corrected entry: After the army of the dead breaks through the main castle door, the humans rush to meet them. If you look carefully, there's an iron gate suspended above the two groups just before they clash. Why didn't the men drop the gate? It would have given them more time.
Corrected entry: When Ash is fighting Evil Ash, Ash flips over Evil Ash and stabs him in the back with his sword. However when Evil Ash pulls it out and throws it at Ash, it is a tiny dagger. (01:07:25)
Corrected entry: In the final battle, when Ash is driving his car with the propeller on etc, a deadite says "Its the one in the car we want, get him." How could it know its called a car?
