Bruce's Dad

During the scene where the Deadites break through the castle walls, and Arthur's men do the *Hah who hey ya* thing, a few minutes after that, a man will FALL into the camera, grey hair and a slash down his cheek.

"Shemps"

Ash takes the Necronomicon all the skeleton arms start to do a classic 3 Stooges slap-and-poke routine with him. "I'm blind! I'm blind!"

Ted Riami Store

The disbelieving clerk Ash is explaining his adventure to in the S-Mart ending is Ted Raimi, who can also be seen in the crowd below the castle battlements receiving Ash's pep-talk just before the battle with Bad Ash's Army of Darkness. Ted is director Sam Raimi's brother--and is best known for his part as Joxer in the Hercules and Xena TV shows (of which brother Sam was executive producer) where he again worked with Bruce Campbell.

Sam Raimi Cameo

In the scene where Ash is trying to rally the townsfolk into fighting the Deadites, a bearded man raises his hand and says something like, "I'll lend you my steel." THAT is Sam Raimi, the guy who has brought us the wonderful Evil Dead movies.

Fangoria

Once Ash decides to help the villagers fight the deadites, he dives into the trunk of his car (that came back ino the past with him) to get some chemistry books and make weapons. Look closely and you will see a copy of the famous Horror Film magazine FANGORIA... The creator Sam Raimi is paying homage to the magazine as they gave Evil Dead I & II such a good rap.

Army of Darkness (Director's Cut) - Hidden Storyboards

Start playing the movie, with the Sam Raimi / Bruce Campbell Commentary, rather than the film's normal audio. Turn on the subtitle function. Rather than getting subtitles from the movie or the commentary, you will get scene by scene storyboards in the lower right hand corner. You can now see each scene as it was storyboarded while it is playing on the screen.

I DO HOPE ARMY OF DARKNESS 2 IS FULL OF EASTER EGGS AND FUN FACTS.
