When SDCC is in full swing the info can come so swiftly that things can get lost in the roar but this year the sound of a buzzing chainsaw has cut through all the other hype. I give to you, the official trailer for Ash Vs. Evil Dead.
Looks like Bruce hasn’t missed a beat and Ash is going to be every bit the wise ass he’s always been. As you can probably guess by what you’ve just seen we pick up with Ash some 30 years after the events of the original trilogy and embark on the following tale:
“Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter, 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.”
When can we see this you ask? Why when else but on Halloween night – Oct. 31st at 9 PM on Starz. If you don’t yet subscribe, it’s time to do so.
Joining Campbell in the 10 episode first season will be Lucy Lawless, Mimi Rogers, and Jill Marie Jones. Sam Raimi directs the premiere episode and all is right with the world!
