When humanity is under threat from a Deadite invasion, who’s the grooviest cat around? Why, it’s the guy with a chainsaw for a hand and a back-up plan that comes out of the barrel of a boomstick, that’s who!
Bruce Campbell is once again back to kick some Deadite ass and save the day. Provided that he survives some light cardio exercise when decapitating his way through an elderly zombie or two. Here’s the first trailer for Ash Vs. Evil Dead. And it’s groovy!
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.
Now that’s what I’m talking about! It’s bloody damn good stuff, pun fully intended. Seeing Bruce Campbell reprise his signature role, while poking fun at a few decades of having zero responsibility and having retained his penchance for one-liners is just what I wanted to see.
The ten episode series kicks off on October 31 with half-hour episodes and also stars Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo.
