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.
