Ellie Creed further tortures Jud Crandall in an exclusive look at a deleted scene from Pet Sematary. The latest big screen adaptation of Stephen King's iconic book was a success at the box office, taking in $112.3 million globally from an initial budget of $21 million. This week, the movie is coming out Digitally with the Blu-ray hitting shelves in July and it's packed with a ton of chilling bonus features, including deleted scenes. We have an exclusive look at one of the unused scenes and it provides some extra backstory about Jud and his late wife Norma.
In Pet Sematary, Ellie Creed is killed after Church the Cat lures her out into the street. She ends up being brought back from the dead, but she is not the same daughter that Louis and Rachel knew and loved. The deleted scene finds Ellie in Jud Crandall's house wearing her animal mask right before she kills him. The zombie version of the girl is torturing Jud and before she takes his life, she takes on the voice and appearance of his late wife Norma.
With his Achilles tendon sliced, Jud Crandall has nowhere to go after falling down the stairs. Ellie Creed starts telling Jud that she saw Nora down in Hell and she's burning because of what he did to her. It's here that Ellie takes on the voice of Norma and briefly her appearance before declaring that they're going to bring Jud back to suffer. It's an intense scene and one has to wonder why it ended up on the cutting room floor because it adds a lot of tension to the original moment as it plays out in the finished film.
