'Evil has found me!' Warns Ash to one of his co-workers, hoping for a little bit of backup. Even a man with a chainsaw hand can't fight Evil alone! A new Ash Vs. Evil Dead sneak peek has arrived, bringing tons of new footage. See who gets roped into Ash's journey as he unleashes a nightmare long thought buried. We get to hear from the entire cast and the creators behind this Starz original series, arriving just in time for Halloween.
Ash Vs. Evil Dead follows Ash (Bruce Campbell), 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. Bruce Campbell offers some new insight into this iconic character. Here's what he had to say about Ash as he returns to fight a new threat, as well as Ash's new companions.
"Ash Williams is your everyman. He's your neighbor who knows nothing. He has no special skills. He's not interested in saving the world. Ash and Pablo, they are very side-kicky. You need a mentor and a tormentor. [Along with Kelly], it's a very tight threesome. And they have a vendetta to rid the world of evil. And they're going to do it one creature at a time."
The rest of the cast offer their own thoughts on who Ash really is. Executive Producer and show runner Craig DiGregorio calls him a lazy blowhard. Executive producer, writer and director Sam Raimi thinks he's selfish and egotistical. While co-star Dana DeLorenzo, who plays Kelly, reveals that the former monster hunter is perfectly happy living in his trailer, and entertaining the ladies when the mood strikes. Of course, all those late night parties come to an end once the Evil Dead is unleashed back on the world.
Executive Producer Rob Tapert explains that it's under his own 'foolery' that Ash releases the Evil Dead from their grave. He must now resume his journey and finish what he started thirty years ago. But he can't do it without a little help. This time around, he'll have his best friend Pablo at his side, played by Ray Santiago. Pablo Simon Bolivar is not only Ash's buddy, but they work together at the Value Mart. Pablo idolizes Ash, only because he needs to something in this world to believe in.
The duo are joined by Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly. The actress describes her character as a sarcastic, tough, quick witted loyal friend to Pablo. She is definitely a bad ass in the making. And Sam Raimi insists she is the real brains behind the operation. These three aren't the only one's battling the Evil Dead. We're also introduced to police officer Amanda Fisher, played by Jill Marie Jones. She is seeing some things that nobody is believing in. She wants the truth. She wants to know what she saw was real. And until she gets the answers, she is very much on the hunt.
Rounding out the cast is Lucy Lawless as Ruby. The actress describes her character as a very mysterious figure. We don't know where she has come from. It's almost as if she has appeared out of nowhere. And she has a powerful obsession with Ash Williams. She will help Ash become the hero he was always meant to be in Ash Vs. Evil Dead. The show is seen as a true sequel to the iconic horror franchise. And as Bruce Campbell himself promises, this is going to be the wildest ride you've ever taken. Strap yourself in and hold on, October 31 can't get here fast enough!
