Someone’s In My Fruit Cellar!

After watching the horror film The Evil Dead (1981) on someone-or-other's movie channel we went online to the trivia section at IMDb and found this tidbit:
The cabin did not actually have a cellar. Most of the cellar scenes were filmed in the stone cellar of a farmhouse owned by producer Robert G. Tapert’s family in Marshall, Michigan. The last room of the cellar was actually Raimi’s garage. The hanging gourds and bones are a tribute to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974). For the scene where the students descend into the cellar, a hole was cut into the floor, a shallow hole was dug, and a ladder was placed into the pit.
Nice. Anyone want to add anything to the story?
