Ash vs Evil Dead
Season 3
Blu-ray | DVD | Digital
Director: Sam Raimi
Starring: Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago, Dana Delorenzo, Lucy Lawless, Arielle Carver-O’Neill
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release date: August 21, 2018

Bruce Campbell has played Ash Williams in the Evil Dead universe longer than I’ve been alive, and I’m 36! Through an epic cinematic trilogy that took him from battling deadites in a cabin in the woods to fighting his evil twin in Medieval Times, Ash has faced it all and won in groovy style. On Halloween night in 2015, the Starz network opened the Necronomicon and resurrected Ash as part of a 10-episode series, Ash vs Evil Dead. For three glorious blood and booze soaked seasons, the creators of the original film delivered one of the best shows on TV, capturing the gore and wittiness of the films while creating new amazing stories and characters. Horror fans were dealt a painful blow earlier this year when Starz announced they would not be renewing Ash vs Evil Dead for a fourth season. While Bruce Campbell has officially retired from the role, laying down the noble chainsaw and boomstick for good, you can now take home Ash’s final ride with the Blu-Ray release of Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3.

“Oh great. I’ve doomed humanity.”

Warning: spoilers below…

This is it. The bittersweet conclusion to my all time favorite show to grace the small screen, Ash vs Evil Dead. Word came out a few weeks back of the decision by STARZ to cancel the show after its third season due to lackluster ratings. It certainly was not due to the quality of the show as season 3 has peaked the series in terms of gore, effects, emotion, and character development. Even Bruce Campbell who has portrayed hero Ash Williams for nearly 40 years, announced on social media his retirement from the character once word came out. I’ve lived and died with this show, the actors, and its fans since day one. I had the honor and privilege of interviewing the cast members several times over the past 3+ years, and it was my favorite part of NYCC each year. Bruce and the rest of cast assured everyone, that the finale was epic. So with that in mind, and a wide range of emotions in my heart, I cover the finale of Ash vs Evil Dead.

SPOILERS below!

“My Boomstick; it’s got me out of a lot of scrapes but be careful”¦ It’s got a hair trigger, kick like a mule.”

Warning: spoilers below…

This was a bad week for fans of Ash vs Evil Dead as STARZ announced that it would not be renewing the show for a fourth season. While the series hit a creative peak this season, the ratings simply were not there. And so this weekend saw the penultimate episode for my favorite show on television. And god dammit they are going down swinging. Last week saw Ash die in order to enter the Rift and rescue Brandy and Kelly. He was half successful as Brandy returned with him thanks to Pablo’s Brujo Especial powers. Kelly is trapped though thanks to Kaya still controlling her body. Let’s hold back the tears for one more week and brace ourselves as tonight, The Dark Ones arrived”¦

“To save those two, I would submit to a prostate exam.”

Warning: spoilers below…

The last two weeks on Ash vs Evil Dead have been rough on Ash and the Ghost Beaters. First, a vengeance-seeking Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) was killed by Ruby (Lucy Lawless) after a knockout drag-out fight. Then Ash had to watch as Ruby threw the Candarian dagger straight into her daughter Brandy’s back killing her as well. Ash is distraught as any father would be. Pablo (Ray Santiago) is also in tears, as this week’s episode begins due to Kelly being trapped in the Rift. Since Pablo used his Brujo Especial powers to open the Rift in the hardware store basement once before, they come up with a crazy plan to get their loved ones back…

“Well for starters there’s a very handsome, but demented version of me running around here so if you see I give you permission to break his face.”

Warning: spoilers ahead…

If you were waiting for Season 3 of Ash vs Evil Dead on STARZ to get REALLY bloody”¦ first off, what’s wrong with you?!?! But secondly, holy crap this is the episode for you! Last week we got the crazy Kelly vs. Ruby brawl that led to Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) being killed in a moment that shook the AvED universe. Ruby (Lucy Lawless) used her body as a vessel to bring Kaya back from the Rift, a place on the other side where Kelly now resides. Meanwhile, Ash (Bruce Campbell) and Pablo (Ray Santiago) accidentally opened the Rift in the hardware store basement leading to a bloody confrontation with demonized Knights of Sumeria. This week, Ruby puts her plan in motion to stop Ash once and for all.
