Five friends travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons.
The eerie howling wind audio heard in the background of much of the film wasn't stock sound effects. Raimi recorded this audio himself while staying in a hotel during filming. One evening Raimi awoke to hear the wind blowing through the mountains ... ...

Characters' hairstyles, as well as the amount of blood on them, change drastically from shot to shot - a result of shooting the film sporadically over several years. Note that seconds after Ash is completely covered in Linda's blood, he is clean again.
The swing music from the old Victrola in the cabin's cellar plays during the closing credits, only to wind down and grind to a stop leaving the sound of the wind to accompany the rest of the credits. The final sound heard as the closing credits end is the fly buzzing - the first sound heard in the opening of the film.
