Movie Quote(s):
  • [Shelly has been hacked into several pieces] Ash: We can't bury Shelly - S-She's a friend of ours.
  • Linda: [singing] We're going to get you. We're going to get you. Not another peep. Time to go to sleep.
  • Ash: You bastards, why are you torturing me like this? Why?
  • [Cheryl has become possessed] Cheryl: Why have you disturbed our sleep; awakened us from our ancient slumber? [shouts] Cheryl: You will die! Like the others before you, one by one, we will take you. [falls to the floor]
  • Voice of Evil Force: Join us...
Movie Trivia:
  • After completing principal photography in the winter of 1979-1980, most of the actors left the production. However, there was still much of the film to be completed. Most of the second half of the film features Bruce Campbell and various stand-ins (or "shemps") to replace the actors who left.
  • Filmed in a real-life abandoned cabin.
  • Creamed corn dyed green was used as zombie guts.
  • Director Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell were friends from high school, where they made many super-8 films together. They would often collaborate with Sam's brother Ted Raimi. Campbell became the "actor" of the group, as "he was the one that girls wanted to look at."
  • The voice of the professor on the tape recording is that of American Movie Classics host Bob Dorian.
