Back at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, the first official trailer for the TV series Ash vs. Evil Dead, which is of course based on the original Evil Dead trilogy of movies from Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, and it was magnificent.
Now Starz has released a new trailer for the show, the “Evil Trailer,” and you can check it out below.
â€œAsh vs Evil Dead,â€ which is currently in production in New Zealand, is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on STARZ in Fall 2015.
Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, 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 â€“personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its â€œEvilâ€ grip.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, â€œBurn Noticeâ€) in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless (â€œSalem,â€ â€œSpartacusâ€) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Ray Santiago (â€œTouch,â€ Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ashâ€™s loyal sidekick, Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past and Jill Marie Jones (â€œSleepy Hollowâ€) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.
Raimi is directing the first episode of â€œAsh vs Evil Deadâ€ that he wrote with Ivan Raimi (Darkman, Army of Darkness, Drag Me to Hell), and Tom Spezialy (â€œChuck,â€ â€œReaper,â€ â€œDesperate Housewivesâ€). Raimi will also serve as executive producer, with Rob Tapert (Evil Dead, â€œSpartacus,â€ Xena: Warrior Princessâ€) and Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, â€œBurn Noticeâ€) along with Craig DiGregorio (â€œWorkaholics,â€ â€œChuckâ€) who will serve as executive producer/showrunner. Ivan Raimi will co-executive produce and Aaron Lam (â€œSpartacusâ€) and Chloe Smith (â€œSpartacusâ€) will serve as producers.
Ash vs. Evil Dead will premiere on Halloween night.
