Hey you primitive screw heads we have some news for ya! Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first official still from Starz’ Ash VS. Evil Dead! We have our first look at Bruce Campbell as Ash covered in blood and gore sporting his trademark chainsaw. He’s still a stock boy and has spent the past three decades 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. He’s joined by his fellow Value Stop employee sidekicks Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana Delorenzo). So with all the time that has passed between Army of Darkness, what has Ash been up to?
“Not much!” says Campbell. “He was perfectly happy doing basically nothing: telling lies about how he lost his hand in bars late at night. That was basically his MO. So, he’s not really the guy who should be dealing with this right now. But…he is. He’s our guy!”
So how exactly do the deadites return? What we know is that Ash is again responsible for unleashing the Evil Dead upon the world. Get that boom stick ready Ash!
Below is a teaser which doesn’t exactly show a whole lot, but it’s enough to get you excited.
