Starz has revealed the first official Ash vs Evil Dead trailer and it already promises to be one of this year’s most anticipated TV series. Hard to believe it’s been close to 30 years since the first Evil Dead but time has been kind to franchise star, Bruce Campbell who is right at home once again as the chainsaw wielding Ash.
Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who 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.
The Ash vs Evil Dead trailer though delivers a perfect throwback to the series of old with trademark humour and Campbell hamming it up as an unsung hero. Filled with signature action and humour, fans are already salivating at the prospect of seeing this series come to life in late October this year. Fittingly, Starz has chosen to air the ten episode series beginning Halloween, which makes perfect sense. We can’t wait to watch this one when it comes out.
