I have yet to watch the first series of Ash Vs Evil Dead, but it is on my list. Ratings and reviews of the American comedy-horror TV show, produced and developed by director Sam Raimi, were solid and extremely positive. Hence why we now have a second season.
The trailer above sees the return of Bruce Campbell as Ash battling the evil dead once more with plenty of claret and the odd perfectly timed one-liner.
Ash Vs Evil Dead season two is set for release this October.
If you’re a Bruce Campbell fan, or an Evil Dead fan, then you really must stop what you are doing, lock the front door, draw the blinds and bask in this brilliant trailer for Sam Raimi’s forthcoming TV series Ash Vs. Evil Dead.
Ash is indeed back battling the undead and demons with one hand and one-liners in what looks like a camp, OTT collection of episodes every horror fan will relish. The plot is set 30 years on from the original film and the old fella, even though a few pounds heavier, still has it, was there ever any doubt he had lost it?
Speaking at the show’s Comic Con panel in San Diego yesterday Campbell explained a little more about the return of his iconic character:
“He has survivor’s guilt. You could have a heyday with his PTSD. He’s a war vet. He continues being a trash-talking know-it-all who doesn’t really know anything. He’s the ultimate anti-hero. He’s kind of an idiot, but man, if I had to go to battle, I’d want to be next to that guy, because he’ll bring it if he has to.”
In news which should surprise no fan of this property Ash Vs. Evil Dead premieres this Halloween.
Here’s the first official teaser trailer for the forthcoming horror TV series Ash Vs Evil Dead.
It’s understood the series will comprise of 10 half-hour episodes and will star Bruce Campbell as he reprises his iconic role of Deadite hunter Ash Williams. Director Sam Raimi, who helmed the original three Evil Dead movies will produce.
The official plot rattles along like so:
Ash has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead until a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind and Ash becomes mankind’s only hope.
Ash Vs The Evil Dead will air this autumn.
No this isn’t the HD officially released version, this is a leaked copy of the trailer filmed through somebody’s jacket, but even though it’s not the best quality I’m not sure I like the look of this remake, it seems far too serious for me. The original was peppered with some much needed light relief, courtesy of the genius facial contortionist Bruce Campbell. This just seems too evil deadpan…sorry.
