Psst. Hey you…yeah you! Do you like she-bitches, boomsticks, chainsaws, copious amounts of blood, and curiously strong jawed heroes? Well come around the Starz house on Halloween night and have yourself the treat of all treats with Ash Vs The Evil Dead.
With the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead, Starz is in full press mode promoting the premier episodes of Ash Vs The Evil Dead. They’ve just released a new trailer for the 10-episode first season of the half-hour series . It’s a shortened version of the trailer released at San Diego Comic Con, but features a few bits of new footage, and a new clip of Ash being one of the only heroes of Cinema that can get away with being a racist.
The boomstick is back, baby! It’s such a pleasure to see Bruce Campbell reprise his role, he’s hit this perfectly, the show hasn’t even started and its already better than the remake. It looks to be a mixture of actual horror, over the top violence, odd ball characters, and just the right amount of immature banter. Yeah, this one’s most certainly at the top of the anticipation pile, for sure. It just proves that good things truly do come to those who wait.
As the story line goes: 30 years after the events of Evil Dead, Ash is a loner, living a dull existence, still not able to come to grips with the events that started at the cabin. When the early stages of a Deadite invasion begin to unfold, our favorite anti-hero must once again attach his chainsaw and pick up his trusty boomstick, all while attempting to finally come to terms with his past.
