Quotes:

    Ash
    Gimme some sugar, baby.

    Duke Henry
    You're not one of my vassals... who are you?
    Ash
    Who wants to know?
    Duke Henry
    I am Henry the Red. Duke of Shale, Lord of the Northlands and leader of its peoples.
    Ash
    Well hello Mister Fancypants. Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things: Jack and s**t... and Jack just left town.

    [Sheila wants to apologize to Ash]
    Ash
    First you wanna kill me, now you wanna kiss me. Blow.

    Ash
    It's a trick. Get an axe.

    Ash
    Shop smart, shop S-mart!

Trivia:

  • As various missiles such as catapult loads and arrows fly through the air, we see their targets from the missile's viewpoint, a type of shot that director Sam Raimi uses quite a bit.
     
  • Cameo by Bridget Fonda as Linda
     
  • All European editions of the movie have the original ending (Ash oversleeping and waking up in a destroyed world.) The US "supermarket battle" ending used to be virtually unknown in Europe for a long time.
     
  • Ted Raimi plays the S-Mart store clerk at the end of the movie.
     
  • An issue of the magazine "Fangoria" can be seen in the car's trunk.
     

Credits Fun:

  • In the opening credits, Bruce Campbell vs. Army of Darkness instead of "in".
