Goofs:
Miscellaneous
The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Continuity
After Mia deals with the last demon, she walks into the distance, limping on the wrong leg.

Continuity
In the final scenes, the blood on Mia's face changes a number of times, not only the pattern, but it changes from dry blood to wet blood (which makes no sense because it is raining blood).

Continuity
After Eric is stabbed in the eye several times and pulls out the needle from under his eye, in the following scene the mark from the needle is lower on his face than where he pulled the needle out from.

Continuity
Mia's necklace is broken near the beginning of the film and is miraculously back together by the time she puts it on.

Continuity
When Mia drives the station wagon into the lake it's frozen. But when she gets out of the car the lake doesn't have any ice on it.

Character Error
In the beginning of the movie, Mia makes David cross his heart. He makes the motion over opposite side of his body (his right side).

Continuity
The double barrel shotgun keeps changing. It goes from having a pistol grip stock to a full stock.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Mia tries to escape in the station wagon there is the sound of tires squealing on asphalt when the car is on mud.
Trivia:
The abandon car Mia is sitting on in the beginning of the film is a 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88, the same car used in the first two Evil Dead films and Army of Darkness. Sam Raimi also featured it his other films including Crimewave, Darkman, A Simple Plan, The Gift, Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3 and Drag Me To Hell.

According to reports in the press, the film used 70,000 gallons of fake blood. In an interview, Fede Alvarez said they used 50,000 gallons for the final scene alone. This is compared to the 200-300 gallons used in the original.

Gillian Jacobs auditioned for the role of Mia but lost to Lily Collins. Collins later dropped out and was replaced by Jane Levy.

Jurnee Smollett-Bell auditioned for the role of Olivia.

Agnes Bruckner and Thora Birch auditioned for the role of Natalie

If you take the first letters of the main characters David, Eric, Mia, Olivia and Natalie, the letters spell out DEMON.

Fede Alvarez stated that the film will heavily rely on practical effects rather than CG effects.

Fede Alvarez pitched the film as the audience watching something they are not supposed to watch.

In one scene there are cards spread out on the table. The cards are laid out in the order that Cheryl reads them in the original.

In the scene where the broken necklace is found outside of the cabin, it can be seen resting in the shape of a skull, just like in the original.

Mia can be seen wearing a Michigan State sweatshirt. In the original version, the main character also wears a Michigan State sweatshirt in the opening scene. This is also a homage to original director Sam Raimi, who is from Michigan.

Diablo Cody polished and "Americanized" the screenplay while remaining uncredited.

The famous "We're gonna get you" scene (shown in the original film and this film's trailer) didn't make it in to the theatrical cut, but supposedly will be in the DVD release.

On one of the first scenes within the cabin, a Uruguayan soccer team flag, of which the director is a fan, can partly be seen on top of a table.

The illustration of the Abomination in the Naturom Demonto is based on the poster artwork for the original Evil Dead film.
