Gorehounds and fans of splatstick horror were delighted when Bruce Campbell returned as Ash Williams in Ash vs. Evil Dead, the Starz series which picks up from the original trilogy of Evil Dead films from master filmmaker Sam Raimi. Of course, there was a remake of Evil Dead that left fans of the series divided, but the return of Ash and the original creative team for Ash vs. Evil Dead gave the fans what the wanted. It brought the haunted world of the Deadites back to new life, reviving that madcap blend of graphic ultraviolence and Three Stooges-inspired comedy.
Now the triumphant second season of Ash vs. Evil Dead is blasting onto Blu-ray this August 22nd, with enough special features to keep your boomstick loaded with ammo to fight the Deadite plague for many days and nights to come. This wild second season sees Ash leaving behind a party life in Florida and facing his own personal demons in his hometown, including a tense reunion with his father (Lee Majors). Meanwhile, there are answers as to the past of the mysterious Ruby (Lucy Lawless), and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) and Pablo (Ray Santiago) continue to better understand the twisted new world that they’re living, settling into new roles that show their characters’ progression since the series premiere.
No show on television has more swagger or splatter than Ash vs. Evil Dead, and fans of the original movies aren’t going to want to miss out on another groovy season this horror-comedy and all of its gory glory. Be sure to take it home when the Necronomicon summons Season 2 on Blu-ray on August 22nd.
