Ash Gets A Crew in Brand new ASH VS. EVIL DEAD Featurette

unnamed (13)Full disclosure: I was more than skeptical when the original announcement of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD hit computers everywhere. The first film in the EVIL DEAD series is one I hold high with great esteem, and as much as I dig EVIL DEAD 2, the approach to go silly with that one and ESPECIALLY in ARMY OF DARKNESS made me wonder, “Why bother?”. Well, this writer is not above admitting that he’s wrong, because based on every single bit of footage, behind the scenes stills and now the brand new featurette for the upcoming 10-part TV series (making its Halloween debut on Starz), color me anxious. It’s a neat little featurette that gives viewers the info on characters we’ll either be revisiting or welcoming aboard for the first time.

Read the official release info and enjoy the featurette!

Ash vs Evil Dead,” a 10-episode half-hour series, is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film The Evil Dead. The series is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers, and Craig DiGregorio who serves as executive producer and showrunner.

Campbell will be reprising 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 cast is led by Bruce Campbell in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick, Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past and Jill Marie Jones as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner. “
