Stars: Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo
A spinoff of the popular horror comedy Evil Dead film series, Ash Vs. Evil Dead finds our titular hero once again fighting those evil demons from hell known as “Deadites.” Set 30 years after the events of Army of Darkness, Ash Vs. Evil Dead finds Ash (Bruce Campbell) working at a value shop when, of course, the evil dead return, and he and his coworkers must team up to save the world from demonic doom. The show combines the typical off-kilter humor of the films, and updates the humor of those late ‘80s movies by making Ash the butt of the joke more often, and contrasting his casual sexism with the more progressive attitudes of Pablo and Kelly. The show, like the movies, is also remarkably gory, showing a deep reverence for inventive carnage by regularly showering the main cast in blood. Ash Vs. Evil Dead is a must for horror movie fans.
