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 .

As the convention hall doors prepare to close on another sensory-overload edition of the most media-heavy nerd gathering in the known universe, we here at NBHQ thought it would be wise to take a quick trip down Recent-Memory Lane by recapping some of the craziest, zaniest, and most mind-blowing-y moments of SDCC15.

Continuing the gear up for SDCC 2015 Starz‘s Ash vs Evil Dead has released two more production stills featuring the famous Chainsaw and Ash’s sweet ride, the 1973 Delta 88. With the news that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will not be presenting any new footage or a second trailer, this makes me wonder if some of the smaller panels might try to take advantage of that opening.

Truth time: the world as we know it has been heinously below its quota of ALL BRUCE CAMPBELL ALL THE TIME for a while now. Fortunately, the screwheads in charge of Hollywood seem to be finally wizening up, as the beyond-enticing TV series “Ash vs. the Evil Dead” is ramping up production as we speak – er, type and read. Earlier this week, we seem to have gotten the first bit of behind-the-scenes juiciness directly from The Man Himself, via his Twitter feed. (more…)
One upon a time, there were a trio of guys from Michigan that decided to make a movie. For the then princely sum of $350,000, writer/director Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert and star Bruce Campbell created a seminal indie horror hit that’s still beloved and referenced by fans and audiences to this day.

Bruce Campbell is the King, baby, and every chance he has to remind his legions of fans of this fact, he takes. Fans are chomping at the bit to see the new Evil Dead television series, Ash vs. The Evil Dead, and for good reason!
