During the making of this film, Bruce Campbell never took off his monster make-up and, when shooting ended, he discovered that his face had started to resemble the shape of the make-up.
The film was publicly released once, shortly after it was made, and featured before late night performances of the The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) in a Detroit theater. Due to not having rights to the music, Raimi and Campbell donated the film's entire gross of less than $20 to the American Cancer Society.

Was slated to be released in April of 2002 as a special feature on Anchor Bay's "Book of the Dead" DVD release of The Evil Dead (1981), but it was withheld at the last minute due to problems with royalties for the music used in the short. This problem has prevented it from being given a release in any format.

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

The scene in which Bruce Campbell gets his wrist cut, leaving his hand dangling, then he proceeds to bite off the rest of the hand was improvised. The hand was meant to have come completely off, but didn't.
