Director Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell were friends from high-school, where they made many super-8 films together.
They would often collaborate with Sam's brother Ted Raimi. Campbell became the "actor" of the group, as "he was the one that girls wanted to look at."
The cabin used for filming The Evil Dead was located in Morristown, TN. The cabin mysteriously burned down years later.
The cabin did not actually have a cellar. The cellar scenes were filmed in Raimi's garage. For the scene where the students descend into the cellar, a hole was cut into the floor, a shallow hole was dug, and a ladder was placed into the pit.
Filmed in a real-life abandoned cabin.
After completing principal photography in the winter of 1979-1980, most of the actors left the production.
However, there was still much of the film to be completed. Most of the second half of the film features Bruce Campbell and
various stand-ins (or "shemps") to replace the actors who left.
