Halloween is only one scant week away, and this year we get a little extra treat with our tricks: Ash vs. Evil Dead premieres on Starz that very night! While the further adventures of everyone’s favorite groovy hero-wannabe is a long time coming, initial reviews for the show have been positive, and honestly, who can’t use a little more Bruce Campbell in their life, am I right? Today, Starz gives its fans an advance candy-bar of a gift, even if it is a little fun-sized: they’ve put the first four minutes of the first episode online for the whole world to enjoy!
Being the sneak Deadite-loving folks that they are, the network has chosen to share the footage only via their Facebook page, so click here to go give ’em a Like and then you’ll be able to check it out. A few brave souls have already copied the footage onto YouTube if you’re that anti-Facebook, so a quick search there might reveal what you’re looking for as well. Either way, give it a good look-see, and then come on back and comment below to tell us what you thought!
In case you’ve been living under some hard rock-like structure, here’s the “official” synopsis of the show. Ash vs. Evil Dead premieres October 31 on the Starz Network.
Bruce Campbell returns as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.
