Evil Dead reference...?

I just finished the game, and I can't help but wonder if the whole comically posessed hand thing is inspired by the Ash character from the Evil Dead trilogy.

Just throwing that out there. :)

    Also, everyone knows Evil Dead 2 is the best one.

    Maybe the third one wasnt all horror, but still funny. And the effects were actually quite good at the time. With the budget it had at least.

    I got both the 2nd and third movie on DVD. Truly classics. I just wished my DVD had all 3 endings, not just two of them.

    Hmmm... looked into it again. My DVD is directors cut and it only has the apocalypse ending. So its just two endings, just remembered it as being two endings on that DVD but not the hail to the king ending. Just couldnt remember the other ending on it :rolleyes: Because it isnt there it seems.

    There are 3 endings? I have the Boomstick Edition and it only has 2 on there.

  • We definitely talked about Evil Dead 2 and the hand dragging Ash around the kitchen and stuff, 3-stooges eyepoking him and such, especially for the final puzzle/situation in Chapter 1. You can't have a violent, comedic possessed hand without at least bringing up Evil Dead!

    I kept hoping there'd be a bit with Guybrush hitting himself over the head with plates.

    Bruce Campbell is the man.

  • the possesed hand/body part theme was around WAY before Sam Raimi used the idea for his student film.

    ... Evil Dead 2 wasn't a student film. I also don't believe anyone claimed that Sam Raimi invented possessed hands. Just that it's one of the greatest films to have ever used the premise.

    Also obviously the hand wasn't just "an evil dead reference" -- it was definitely something that came up in design meetings but we didn't all sit down and say "oh man lets put Sam Raimi's Evil Dead hand in the game!!!" because that would be weird.
