One of my favorite movies growing up as a kid, was Army of Darkness. Part of the Evil Dead franchise, this movie had everything I wanted in a movie. Corny humor, gore, and of course zombies! OK fine, they were evil dead. But that’s pretty close to zombies!
And now, a lifetime later, Ash and the Evil Dead are returning to us in a 10 episode series on the Stars Network. Bruce Campbell shall be reprising his role as the much older, but not more mature Ash, who is forced to once again fight the Evil Dead.
Original creators Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are serving as executive producers on the series with Raimi even directing the first 30 minute episode. Premiering this Halloween, the series looks to have all the fun and gore of the original, with much better special effects. Can’t wait!
