Trivia / Evil Dead

Works in this franchise with their own pages:

  • Completely Different Title
  • Name's the Same: Ashley Williams. Yeah it was deliberate.
    Nothing like a nice relaxing stroll on the beach...blasting bad guys with my boomstick.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • The three other Lindas (the Army incarnation played by Bridget Fonda). She's never been played by the same actress twice.
    • In Poker Night 2, it'll be the first time Ash isn't played by Bruce Campbell. To say many fans cried Ruined Forever is an understatement.
  • Real-Life Relative: Ted Raimi, natch, who appears in every movie in different roles. Ivan Raimi is also credited as Fake Shemp in the first and third movies (the latter of which he co-wrote).
  • Similarly Named Works: The song "Evil Dead" by Death Metal band Death.
  • Star-Making Role: Bruce Campbell is most definitely annoyed by the amount of people who ask him about Evil Dead IV.
  • Trope Namer: This film series has named the following tropes:
    • Fake Shemp: During filming of The Evil Dead, any castmember that wasn't Bruce Campbell eventually left due to various circumstances. To finish the movie, stand-ins were utilized wherever possible (sometimes quite noticeably, sometimes not) and these people were credited as this. Sam Raimi himself coined the term, inspired by The Three Stooges. The term became a fixture of later Raimi-related productions.
    • This Is My Boomstick: After Ash's line in Army of Darkness.
  • The Wiki Rule: The Evil Dead Wiki.
