During the Credits
There are several noteworthy parts of the credits of Evil Dead. The first couple of minutes of the credits plays over slow motion close-ups of various violent elements of the movie. After this, the rest of the credits scrolls over parchment from the Book of the Dead. About four minutes into the credits, audio of Cheryl Williams (Ellen Sandweiss) and Professor Raymond Knowby (Bob Dorian) from the first movie of the franchise plays as the professor dictates his encounter with the Book of the Dead. After about a half-minute pause, this is followed by another sound clip at the end of the credits, then the sound of a fly buzzing around, which is associated with being possessed.
After the Credits
There is a brief extra scene after the credits of Evil Dead. Check out more details and spoilers below.
After the credits of Evil Dead is a special cameo that lasts about seven seconds. It shows a shadowy close-up profile of a now older Ash (Bruce Campbell). Initially looking down, he lifts his head up, says ”Groovy” (a catchphrase from the original trilogy), and suddenly turns to the audience.
