“Ash vs. Evil Dead – Season 1” review…

So this week I’ve finally finished watching “Ash vs. Evil Dead – Season 1”. The continuation from the Evil Dead trilogy starring Bruce Campbell who reprises his role as Ash. I wanted to watch this show but I don’t have the Starz channel. Now I’ve bought the PS4 system, I’ve bought this show from the Playstation Store and watched it on there.

“Ash vs. Evil Dead – Season 1” was surprisingly amazing. Some of you know that I’m a pretty big Bruce Campbell and Evil Dead fanatic. I’ve always have been. Loved the Evil Dead trilogy for years. Now the continuation or “sequel” is finally here with Bruce back as Ash finally.

This show is every Evil Dead fan’s dream. It sticks to the same horror & comedy format. So it is both scary and funny at the same time like the original trilogy. Honestly, this is more “action” then horror ’cause there’s plenty of action scenes in it. Yes, you will see plenty of gore too. You will see a lot of demon fighting too. Ash is older and funnier. Bruce can still kill it as that character. He still does the funny catchphrases and one-liners.

“Ash Vs. Evil Dead” was originally supposed to be “Evil Dead 4” for the big screen but the Raimi brothers couldn’t afford it for the big screen so it went to TV instead. “Ash vs. Evil Dead” turned out to be a great show and it’s a must watch for any horror fan or Evil Dead fan. You will see plenty of flashbacks from Evil Dead 1 & 2 but there are no flashbacks from “Army of Darkness”, though. The store that Ash works in is called “Value Smart” instead of “S-mart” like at the end of “Army Of Darkness”. Not sure why all the changes from Army of Darkness. Is it because of copyright reasons? Probably since “Army of Darkness” was a different studio.

Anyway, “Ash vs. Evil Dead” was fucking awesome and a blast to watch. My only complaint is that the episodes were too short. I don’t agree with a half hour an episode. They need to be an hour long so can Season 2 be an hour long for each episode, please? “Ash vs. Evil Dead” was funny as hell as I had a good laugh watching some scenes. I had to watch this show on the Playstation ’cause I didn’t know where else to watch it. Bring on Season 2 please!



“Ash vs. Evil Dead” trailer is finally here!!!

Oh man, as expected I would think that the “Ash vs. Evil Dead” TV show for Starz would turn out to be badass. Ash is back and badder than ever!

This show won’t disappoint die-hard Evil Dead fanatics at all ’cause just like the original trilogy… there will be plenty of demon fighting, blood & gore.

I wish I could watch this show but I don’t have the Starz channel and don’t plan on getting it anytime soon. Anyhow, I’ll get the BluRay when it comes out.


Casting and plot revealed for “Evil Dead” TV series!!! Yes, Bruce is indeed coming back as Ash!!!

The casting and plot details have been revealed for the upcoming “Evil Dead” series for the Starz network. Ray Santiago and Dana Delorenzo have been signed to play Ash’s sidekicks for the TV show.

Look like this TV show isn’t gonna be a continuation of the 2013, “Evil Dead” big screen film but instead the TV show is gonna be a continuation of the original trilogy so I assume this will take place 30 years after, “Army of Darkness”???

Here’s the synopsis: “Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the 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.“


Awesome! Wish I can watch this show when it’s on the air but I don’t have Starz and will probably never get it! So if they get it on Netflix, I’ll probably watch it on there. If Netflix doesn’t get the show at all, then I’m gonna have to buy it on DVD.

I’m sure the show will still be a mix of comedy and horror like the original trilogy. I’m sure Ash will say his famous catchphrases such as “Groovy” and “Hail to The King, baby” but I hope he comes up with new catchphrases too!

I’m excited for this show being the big Evil Dead and Bruce Campbell fan that I am. Can’t wait to see him back as Ash. Gonna be badass to see him back in that role and I’m sure he’s still got it! \m/


Groovy! Bruce Campbell confirmed to reprise his role as Ash for “Evil Dead” TV series!!!

This is big news for Evil Dead and Bruce Campbell fanatics like myself. While I am excited for this news, the only problem is though that I don’t have the Starz channel. I don’t get any premium channels for cable TV anymore as they are too expensive.

“Evil Dead” is coming to Starz for a 10 episode run and each episode will be only a half hour long. I just knew that Bruce’s cameo at the end of the latest “Evil Dead” film confirms a future return for Ash and I was right.

The TV show will be just like the movies. Ash trying to fight the Deadites to survive… lots of blood and gore w/ wacky humor along with it.

Will we see the chainsaw as his hand and the sawed off shotgun? I’m sure we will see both of those again but I’m sure Ash will come up with new weapons as well.

Read here for more information on the show…


I’m dying to watch this show being the big “Evil Dead” nut that I am but I don’t have Starz. I’ll just watch it when it comes out on Netflix or DVD. Wish the episodes can be an hour but despite the length, I’m just glad Evil Dead is coming back with Ash this time.

Even though Bruce hasn’t played the character in so many years, I’m sure he’ll kill the role with no problem at all.


Listen up you primitive screwheads… look like Ash is returning to “Evil Dead”after all but to the small screen…

It’s been officially announced that the “Evil Dead” is headed to the small screen but the best part is that Bruce Campbell is reprising his role as Ash. The plot for the new TV series is not yet known and it is also not yet known what TV network the show will be headed to.

As long as Ash is finally making a comeback, it would make a lot of sense if the TV show would be a continuation after “Army Of Darkness”. I would like to know what happens to Ash after that. Would Ash still be stuck in the medieval world in 1300 AD? I think it’ll be cool if Ash finds his way back to the cabin in present time.

What TV network should get the show? I hope it doesn’t go to a premium channel. It should stay away from HBO or Showtime. I think this is perfect for AMC. Great competition for, “The Walking Dead”. I’m happy Bruce is not done playing Ash. Can’t wait to see him back in the role and I’m sure he can still play the role well.

I can’t wait to see him back with the chainsaw and sawed-off shotgun! Groovy!!!



Hmmmm, looks like Bruce Campbell as Ash has a cameo in the new “Evil Dead” movie after all!!!

I just finished re-watching the new “Evil Dead” movie on BluRay. The re-boot film, and I just found out that Bruce Campbell actually reprise’s his role in the film even though there was a lot of speculation that he wasn’t in the film at all. Stick through the credits at the end of the movie when it’s rolling and when the credits are done… you’ll see him. He’ll just quickly look at the camera and say his famous catchphrase, “Groovy”. Could this mean that Ash could be the leading character in the sequel? He can still play that role really well even if he said one line. I didn’t stay for the credits when I first saw this movie in theater.

Hopefully, Ash will be in the next one. They shouldn’t ignore Ash completely. I’m a huge Bruce Campbell and Evil Dead fan. I love the previous three Evil Dead films too. Bruce Campbell is the man. I respected that guy for years. He’s the most famous B-movie actor out there. Kudos to him for staying away from the big budget films. He’s a cool guy.

I still love the new “Evil Dead” film too. Looking forward to the next one and really hope they bring Ash back at some point.


Film Review: Evil Dead

Starring: Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci

Directed By: Fede Alvarez

Well, earlier this afternoon, I finally got around to watching the new, “Evil Dead” movie, in a theater, this time! Here is my review:

Plot/Synopsis: Five young friends, go out vacationing, and they discover an old remote cabin in the woods, where they decide to stay at for a few days. Mia who is David’s sister, is a recovering heroin addict, and they investigate the cabin, whether it is safe to stay there or not. When they decided to stay, they discover the Book of the Dead in the basement. One of them decided to read the book and they accidentally summoned the Deadites living in the woods nearby. The group tries to fight off these Deadites for survival. 

When this project was first announced since last year, I was kind of skeptical of this film myself. I was even more skeptical when Diablo Cody, jumped on board to help write the script with these guys. Now that the movie is finally here, and I got to see it, I was pleasantly surprised. This is a true horror film, at it’s finest. I don’t mind an “Evil Dead” movie, without Bruce Campbell starring as Ash, but as long as the original team is still behind it, I’m all for it. This film was an absolute thrill ride. I had such a blast watching this film. I never felt like that watching a horror film. I’ve seen so many horror flicks over the years. Most of them don’t want to make you jump up and cheer. Get grossed out or even get scared a little bit. This film did all that. It was creepy and gory as hell, all the way through. Even though this film has nothing to do with Ash, as expected, there were plenty of Ash references, and they’re real easy to spot too!

A lot of people said that this film was very much like the original, the first one, but the way I saw it, this film was a mix of the first two Evil Dead movies. This film has a little bit of “Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn” in there, as well. Even though Sam Raimi, didn’t direct this one, and he was one of the producers, this film was still done in his style. So Fede Alvarez, obviously had a lot of help from Sam in this movie. You’re not going to see too much comedy in this film. This film wanted to focus more on the horror part of things. The goal here was to make this film a true horror film, and it was!!! This film isn’t a remake or a prequel. It is actually a continuation, taken years after the first one. There are signs throughout the film, that Ash has been in the cabin previously. This film does a wonderful job explaining how the cabin turned out to be. Getting haunted by the Deadites.

For the sequel, I hope they don’t ignore the comedy stuff completely, ’cause it was the horror/comedy bits, that is what made these films work. Even though, this film was more focused on horror, there is still bits of humor here and there. Just not too much. It’s just a new EVIL DEAD movie, using today’s technology of filming. Just a word of advice though, this film is not for the weak stomach at all. There are some major gross outs that’ll make you almost want to throw up or look away from the screen. The gore looked pretty good and more realistic looking too. Most gore in horror films have been pretty bad, but this film makes the gore look good.

The cabin and set design is very similar of the first two Evil Dead flicks. The same place that Ash was at previously, until he got thrown into a different world (the Army of Darkness world where he got sent to). So it wouldn’t make sense at all if Ash did return to the cabin for this movie. That would be a problem. Other than that, this was a pretty amazing flick. Like I said, I haven’t had so much fun watching a horror film in a long time! It is a great introduction to the Evil Dead franchise. Whether you’re a longtime fan, or a newbie, this will attract new fans to the older movies, which is the goal here.

I’m already looking forward to the sequel here. Two thumbs up for this movie. I will definitely buy the Blu Ray when it comes out.


Congratulations to Sam, Bruce, and Rob on success of new “Evil Dead” film!!!

I’m pretty proud of these guys. The new “Evil Dead” movie, is the #1 movie in America just over the weekend. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m going to see it today at a different mall. The original trilogy didn’t do very well in the box office back in the day, but their new “Evil Dead” film, became a hit. So that means, there’s going to be more new, “Evil Dead”, films. I read somewhere that Sam plans on making a sequel to “Army Of Darkness” (Evil Dead 4), still where it leaves off from the last one. So hopefully, Bruce decides to return as Ash in the, “Army of Darkness” sequel, ’cause it would make a whole lot of sense.

Like I said, I definitely plan on seeing the new “Evil Dead” later this afternoon, and will review it when I get back. I’m probably gonna end up liking it a lot.

I love horror flicks. I love the Evil Dead trilogy and Bruce Campbell. I’ll let you know what I think of the new Evil Dead film. I haven’t seen a new film in a theater in a long while ’cause the movie theater closed down at the mall that’s near me, so I’m going to a different one today. I’ve been wanting to see the new “Evil Dead” film, ever since this project was first announced, and it can’t wait for the Blu Ray release.


New “Evil Dead” movie, will I see it next weekend? Yes, probably…

The reason I haven’t reviewed any new movies out in theater in a long while is because the Wilton Mall in Saratoga Springs, a mall that is near me, has no movie theater anymore. The theater closed down. So I haven’t been seeing that many flicks in a long while. I am planning to see the new Evil Dead movie next weekend, though, for sure. Gonna go with other people at a different mall, I think.

Could the new “Evil Dead” movie be just as good as the originals or could it be better? I know everyone wants Bruce Campbell to be a part of this movie, but it makes kind of sense for him to move on. The man is aging, he isn’t getting any older, and he just wants to pass the torch to younger actors. Remember now, Bruce was pretty young when he did the originals. I believe   Bruce was around 20 years of age when he filmed the first and second Evil Dead, flicks. Even though Bruce isn’t starring in the film, I’m sure we’ll get plenty of Ash references, though! We’ll  still get the old school Evil Dead B-Movie style but with a current feeling of today’s technology. The film was made low budget, just like the earlier films.

Everyone mistakenly believes this new film is a re-boot/remake, but it isn’t. It’s a continuation. It’s actually a sequel of the first film, ’cause the new film takes place 30 years after the first one. Maybe the new film can work without Bruce Campbell. If you knew what happened at the end of the first Evil Dead movie, it wouldn’t make sense to bring Ash back. I don’t mind a new Evil Dead film without Ash, as long as the original team are still behind it: Sam, Rob, and Bruce. I’m sure the new film will be scary and gory as hell, but will this film top the original? I’ll have to see for myself first.

I am a huge  fan of the original trilogy, though. Can’t wait to see the new film, though. I’m sure they will do it justice.
