Are you a fan of the Evil Dead movies? Then I’d like to bet you know how difficult it is to pick just one favorite moment from the series. However, that didn’t stop me from asking the cast of Ash vs. Evil Dead to share their picks while promoting the show.
On October 31st, Bruce Campbell returns as Ash Williams, everyone’s favorite stock boy who once took on a slew of bloodthirsty demonic zombies. Ash thinks he’ll be able to avoid the horrors of the Necronomicon forever by keeping it tucked away in his trailer, but one night, he slips and accidentally unleashes the evil again. Now with the help of his coworkers from the Value Stop, Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) and Pablo (Ray Santiago), Ash will have to arm up and dismember some more Deadites. On top of that, he’s got Lucy Lawless’ character, Ruby, on his tail as well as Jill Marie Jones’ Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper who’s determined to prove that Ash is at fault for her partner’s murder.
All the cackling, bloodshed and Deadite mayhem begins on October 31st at 9pm when Ash vs. Evil Dead debuts on Starz, but while we wait, let’s revisit some highlights from the original films. Check out what Lawless, Jones, DeLorenzo and Santiago pegged as favorite Evil Dead moments in the video below.
Here’s the official description of Ash vs. Evil Dead:
Bruce Campbell reprises 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 – personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’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 (“Sleepy Hollow”) 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.
