Ash vs. Evil Dead: The Complete Season One is now available on home video. It has everything an Evil Dead fan could want: average-schmo-turned-hero-out-of-necessity Ash Williams; grandmothers and booksellers turned deadites; human-sized demons that erupt from a doomed character’s mouth; gallons of fake blood and even a new crew to keep Ash from screwing up […]

Despite starting […]
