Evil Dead 2013: 23 References to the Original Movies

Fans of the the Evil Dead franchise have been hoping for an Evil Dead 4 or Army of Darkness 2 for two decades but it looks like they will have to wait just a little bit longer (or WILL they?). For now they'll need to settle for a remake by director Fede Alvarez - and first reactions say, that's not a bad thing.

Alvarez and company have not only managed to produce a horror remake that isn't awful, but they did it while including several references to the original series of Sam Raimi directed films from the 80's and 90's - Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn, and Army of Darkness.

We've identified three different types of head nods - prop nods, story nods, miscellaneous nods - and have found 23 of these References to the Original Series - some subtle, others blatant - to watch for in the remake.
