Evil Dead (2013)- Deleted Credit Scene

Posted on March 21, 2013 at 9:23 pm by Jess Hicks


In just a little over a month the eagerly anticipated remake of Evil Dead will be upon us. You can’t be online without inadvertently hearing or seeing something about this film. Though it isn’t in theaters yet it has been screened at several film fests, more recently SXSW, and fans and critics alike seem to love it. Stop reading now if you wish to avoid mild spoilers!

We have heard that there is an “after the credits” scene so make sure you stick around after the show. However, the scene that is in the final version apparently wasn’t the original one they planned on. According to Comic Book Movie, the scene in question would have made fans jump for joy.

“I was told that there was a scene for post-credits where they shot Bruce Campbell in the Ash role but of course he is older (trying to integrate him into this remake’s timeline for future possible cross over),” the reader explained to us. “The surviving member of the group is walking down a road (all covered in blood from the final scene in the movie) and suddenly a truck (with the word “S-Mart” printed on the side of the truck’s container unit) drives up the road and stops by the survivor. Then the window roles down and we see none other than Ash (Ashley Williams…Bruce Campbell)…the hero and survivor from the original Evil Dead trilogy. He asks the survivor if everyting is OK and if any help was needed. Then the Survivor looks at Ash and turns again into a Deadite (gets possessed again)….then we see Ash with the camera zoomed in a close-up on his face as he says: “Groovy!” (one of his famous catchphrases from Evil Dead 2/Army of Darkness…you fans know what I am talking about) and we fade to black… I was so excited and shocked when I heard this little golden nugget by the insider. Then the person goes on to tell me that they shot the whole scene but when Sam Raimi/Bruce Campbell watched it they decided it was out of place (for now).”


I haven’t seen the film yet but I would have loved to see the original scene they filmed. The new one better be worth it to cut out Bruce “the chin” Campbell! What do you guys think? Should they have left it in to pay homage or is it better to keep this film as separated from the original as possible? Leave a comment below!
