The lone survivor of an onslaught of flesh-possessing spirits holes up in a cabin with a group of strangers while the demons continue their attack.
The recap of The Evil Dead (1981) includes a shot where the "evil force" runs through the cabin and rams into Ash. When this shot was filmed, Bruce Campbell suffered a broken jaw when Sam Raimi (who was operating the camera) crashed into him with a bicycle - or so people were led to believe. This was a story concocted by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell as a gag to see how many people would believe it actually happened.
You did it kid...
After Ash regains composure from getting possessed by the evil force, the shot spins and zooms out to expose a very long shot; this shot has obviously been done in reverse-action as the water patterns from the movement of Ash's legs are playing backwards.
The sequel to the ultimate experience in grueling horror
In an attempt to attain an R rating for the film (the first The Evil Dead (1981) was released unrated), fluid spit out by the Possessed Henrietta was variously black and green instead of blood red. An alternate take of the "blood flood" (when Ash is deluged by blood from a hole in the wall) used different colors as well (as shown in the special features on the DVD). Ultimately, the film was not given an R rating and was released unrated.
