News & Interviews for Ash vs. Evil Dead: Season 1
If you're a fan of the mixed-genre genre, this is a cracker, and aficionados of Sam Raimi's original films will love revisiting tropes, touchstones and Raimi's distinctive style. This also works perfectly well for newbies, though.
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
Audience Reviews for Ash vs. Evil Dead: Season 1
Ash vs. Evil Dead is the single greatest thing in the history of the universe. Sure, I may be saying that as a die-hard fan of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead film franchise-- a series that started in 1981, and ostensibly ended in 1992 (with a brief, notable continuation with 2013's intense and wonderful Evil Dead remake). And as such a fan, I may have been waiting to see Bruce Campbell's dimwitted zombie slayer Ash Williams make a return for, oh, over a DECADE or so. But even with the glossy sheen of nostalgia and brand recognition stripped away, Ash vs. Evil Dead is a crazy-fun, energized, blood-drenched carnival ride. It's everything that made the original films great, chopped up into neat, 30-minute increments and stretched out over five freaking hours. Screw an Evil Dead IV-- THIS is what we've all been waiting for! (more to come)
