Critic Reviews for Ash vs Evil Dead Season 1

Watching the production come up with crazy kills and challenging set pieces is nearly as fun as hearing Ash's continuous wisecracking, making "Ash vs. Evil Dead" quite possibly the most fun you can find on television.

When old friends get back together, it's not surprising if they dwell on the past. Ash vs Evil Dead is nothing new, but everyone involved seems to be having such a good time that it's hard not to get pulled in.

I'm happy the producers of the upgrade made a very clear decision not to "upgrade" the proceedings too much. Things still feel tactile. When the buckets of blood pour, you can feel the stickiness.

With its quips, chainsaws and plenty of blood, I couldn't be happier

I can say that I found it all fairly amusing, as the material kept veering into cheap horror slapstick.

The bloody roots of Evil Dead are fully honored as well; it's doubtful there has ever been a more red-covered show in TV history. But the overarching goofiness of everything tempers any disgust factor.

No matter what, new Evil Dead is new Evil Dead and there's one word to describe that - groovy.

Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

For Evil Dead disciples who've kept the faith all these years, the show is fun enough to make them rethink everything this franchise taught them about dead loved ones who show up on their doorstep, looking better than ever.

Insistent on sticking to the roots of old-school techniques over transitioning the series into something it is not, a.k.a. modern-day CGI and special effects.

Dec 3, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's exactly as cheesy as it sounds, and do you know what? It's all the more glorious for it.

Sep 19, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's difficult to imagine how Ash vs Evil Dead could be any more fan-pleasing than it is...packed with all sorts of looney fun that conjures back up the "splatstick" style Raimi and friends popularized.

Aug 20, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

With its over-the-top style, twisted sense of humor, charming cast, and a compelling storyline, it's an unabashedly entertaining show that takes everything we love about the original films and translates it to the small screen.

    Amazing show, I was encaptured by the first episode and binge watched it right until the end. When I heard the show was not picking up I was deeply saddened and now my hope is that Netflix will pick it up. Either way I thought I'd send my support via RT

    Itâ??s exactly what weâ??ve all been waiting for, for years. How did this show get cancelled?!
  • Feb 11, 2019
    Gloriously gruesome, fabulously funny, nostalgic but still fresh. A pleasure to watch.
  • Jan 03, 2019
    I started watching this without having seen the movies, but was able to get what was happening and quickly fell in love with it's trademark cheesiness, and Bruce Campbells classic character.
  • Dec 31, 2018
    Bruce Campbell's over the top personality is fun and camp. We need more people like him in the world!
