Listen up, you primitive screwheads! Ash vs. Evil Dead, Starz original series that revitalized Sam Raimi‘s legendary horror series, is coming to DVD and Blu-ray, complete with a double-barreled boomstick and a chainsaw covered grease and blood. In the series, Bruce Campbell reprises his iconic role as Ash, the hapless hero forced to fight the frightful forces of the undead. Joining our arrogant and incompetent hero along his horrific journey is Pablo (Ray Santiago), the wide-eyed co-worker of Ash that foolishly looks up to the brash would-be hero, and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo), another co-worker of Ash’s with a strong sense of self.
The first season of Ash vs. Evil Dead premiered last Halloween with its inaugural episode directed by Raimi, capturing all of the manic mayhem and comedy of the classic original series of films. As the series progressed, Ash wouldn’t just have to contend with the forces of the undead, but a Michigan State Trooper seeking answers (Jill Marie Jones) and the mysterious stranger Ruby (Lucy Lawless). The series is action-packed and overflowing with gore and bloody humor, and is a must-own for horror fans and lovers of the Evil Dead series.
There will be blood, and lots of it when Ash vs. Evil Dead hits DVD and Blu-ray on August 23rd, 2016. Featuring audio commentaries with Bruce Campbell and other special features, Ash vs. Evil Dead certainly looks to be a home video set that’s, well, groovy.
From the press release:
From the creators of The Evil Dead comes a new STARZ Original Series, Ash vs Evil Dead. The STARZ Original series is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film The Evil Dead. The series is executive produced by Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead, The Grudge), Rob Tapert (The Evil Dead, The Grudge), and Bruce Campbell (“Burn Notice,” Oz the Great and Powerful, The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness), the original filmmakers, and Craig DiGregorio who serves as executive producer and showrunner. Campbell reprises 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. Bring the terror home on Blu-ray™ and DVD August 23, 2016.
