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 too badly.
Created by Ivan Raimi, Sam Raimi and Tom Spezialy (doubtless with input from B-movie legend Bruce Campbell), Ash vs. Evil Dead rocks as hard as it should (and note the Michigan bands whose music closes each episode – legendary!).
We’re still three days and a bit out from the series premiere of Ash vs. Evil Dead but Starz has seen fit to give the series a second season order today. The early renewal comes as rave reviews from sources like Deadline.com, TV Guide and IGN pour in.
Ash vs. Evil premieres on October 31st (Happy Halloween!) – simultaneously around the globe. For details, follow the jump.
Executive Producers and original filmmakers Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell along with showrunner Craig DiGregorio were joined by cast Lucy Lawless, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo and Jill Marie Jones for the surprise screening in advance of the October 31st series premiere.
