The rusted Oldsmobile seen in the film is NOT a 1973 Delta 88 (AKA Sam Raimi's personal car) like many fans have stated, but a 1974 Delta 88. According to car enthusiast Jerry Garret: "A 1973 Olds Delta 88 had a hood that curled down over the front of the car. Under it, two low, long and wide 'waterfall' grille sections were placed either side of a 'nose', festooned with an Oldsmobile logo, about six inches wide. The front bumper ran in a clean, unbroken line across the front of the car. In the 'Evil Dead' (2013), the grille sections of the rotting Olds in the woods are placed much farther apart from the nose. They are more upright and square. In fact, they begin to wrap up over the hood line. And the front bumper of the car in the remake has two bumper guards, while Raimi's did not. See also the chrome 'Oldsmobile' script on the left grille panel; not there in a '73". A possible reason for this stand-in for Raimi's original is Raimi could have been using the chassis for a wagon in Oz: The Great And Powerful, which was filming around the same time as Evil Dead.

While the theatrical release was uncut, the German DVD release was cut by ca. 1 minute to to keep its "Not under 18" rating from the FSK. The uncut version was released with a SPIO/JK approval (resulting in various sale restrictions). See more »
This movie was great. simply astonishing, a near perfect experience. Just like the poster of the film it's one of the scariest film ever. I saw the old evil dead movies and i have to say that this movie is pretty close to the original. This is a little better because the old one looks little fake but this doesn't mean that it wasn't scary. I want to see it again and again and again but please don't go alone to see it or don't see it alone anyway.i want expecting that great result to be honest but when you finally got to see it it will be an amazing way to spend 90 m of your life. it deserves the place that the old films have. The whole film has tone of blood. If you love violence, gore, jump scares, demons , screams and other freaking scary this then this film would be perfect for you. Only for strong stomachs!!! 8/5
