Fede Alvarez Reflects on Ash Almost Appearing in ‘Evil Dead’ and Teaming With Mia in a Sequel [Interview]

After decades of begging for the return of Ash in a fourth Evil Dead, fans were offered a glimpse of hope in the closing seconds of the Fede Alvarez-directed Evil Dead back in 2013.

While Bruce Campbell didn’t appear in the actual film, which Alvarez has previously explained is a direct sequel to Sam Raimi‘s The Evil Dead (1981), he does cameo in the final seconds of the end credits. But before this playful “button” was tacked onto the credits, Alvarez had planned to have Ash actually appear in the film’s epilogue, sharing the screen with Mia.

In the extended cut of the film, Jane Levy‘s Mia is picked up on the road by a truck driver after her horrifying ordeal. The original plan, Alvarez confirms in a chat with Bloody Disgusting’s The Boo Crew Podcast this week, was for the truck driver to be Ash Williams.

Additional Excerpt:
Alvarez had also toyed with the idea of Ash and Mia being related, he tells The Boo Crew. “We did have a lot of intentions of doing that,” he says. “And she still might be related. If she is, she doesn’t know. We had a very complex character past for [Mia]. And David. They were siblings but they had different parents – different fathers. So yes, they might be related.”

[Exclusive Interview] Crawl Inside The Practical Magic of THE WRETCHED with Makeup FX Artist Erik Porn

One of the many great standout features of The Wretched are the film’s frequent and awesome practical special effects. After growing up with a father who helped create visual effects for Evil Dead and Evil Dead II, it’s really no surprise that The Pierce Brothers would take the art seriously in their own work. This is where hiring makeup and special effects artist Erik Porn comes into play.

“A Bomb of Blood”: ‘Evil Dead’ Director Fede Alvarez on the Alternate Endings We’ve Never Seen [Exclusive]

“There are two endings no one has seen.”

Currently, there are two different endings to Fede Alvarez‘s Evil Dead that you can watch, with Mia escaping into the woods alone in the theatrical version and getting picked up by a truck driver in the extended alternate ending that’s included with the “Uncut” version of the film. But there’s another ending that Alvarez and Jane Levy shot – one that we’ve not yet seen.

Speaking with Bloody Disgusting’s The Boo Crew Podcast, Alvarez reveals the alternate ending that would have hearkened back to The Evil Dead and Sam Raimi’s iconic “demon-POV” camerawork, leaving Mia’s fate a whole lot more unclear. And there’s still another ending to the film that was scripted but never shot, wherein Mia is definitively killed by the evil force.

Ultimately, it was Sam Raimi who insisted on Mia surviving.

Bruce Campbell Does Voice Work Like ‘The Last Kids On Earth’ Because ‘I’m Not Getting Blood Thrown In My Face’

Nicholas Morine writes:

Almost any ’80s or ’90s kid who grew up watching sci-fi, fantasy, or horror fare can associate the name Bruce Campbell with at least one iconic role. From Ash Williams of the Evil Dead franchise to the “King of Thieves,” Autolycus, in the Xena and Hercules television shows that were extremely popular at the time, Campbell left a lasting impression on audiences that persists to this day.

Having appeared as acerbic playboy Sam Axe in 111 episodes — and a spinoff movie — for sunny spy-actioner Burn Notice, and having recently hosted Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, Campbell has found a number of iconic roles through a career spanning 40 years.

Now, returning to lend his voice to The Last Kids on Earth, an animated post-apocalyptic Netflix series from Atomic Cartoons, the veteran actor finds himself working with the world’s most recognizable streaming giant. And as a fan, I was delighted that Campbell took a few moments out of his day to discuss his past, present, and future credits with me — as well as his social media presence and his love of the great outdoors.

‘Army of Darkness’ is Absolutely Fascinating For All Sorts of Reasons

The Evil Dead series, both in the cinematic and television forms, has a marvelously delirious history. An original film financed on a shoestring budget that plays its horror-centric tone mostly straight but with a few chuckle-inducing moments, a sequel that is, in essence, a remake of the original and was originally supposed to follow the plot of the third film, said third film that goes off in a completely different direction, and later a TV series, 22 years later, that makes no reference to the third installment for legal reasons, therefore technically continuing the story of the first film but unquestionably borrowing the slapstick, overly comedic identity of the third movie. Few popular franchises can claim to have a developmental history has complicated and hard-fought as Evil Dead, although one would struggle to consider that a virtue. All that being said, Army of Darkness, which premiered in 1992 but was only released wide in February of 1993, is arguably the most interesting, unique and important entry.
