Ash vs Evil Dead is a follow-up to the classic horror film, The Evil Dead, starring Bruce Campbell as Ash, a chainsaw wielding zombie killer. Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, who has spent the better part of thirty years trying to avoid responsibility and the evil dead, but 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.
Run by Sam Raimi, the series also stars Lucy Lawless, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo and Jill Marie Jones. The first season will run as a 10-episode half hour series.
As a fan of the original The Evil Dead franchise, I’m quite excited to see how the series turns out. Hopefully, it won’t be too bad, but judging from the trailer, I’m confident it won’t be (who judges a series from the trailer right?).
