30 years after what happened in «Evil Dead II», an aging Ash lives in a worn trailer while suffering from PTSD and surviviour gult, haunted by the gruesome past and spending his time chasing women in the local bars. One night he takes a prostitute home to his trailer park where they get high on marihuana, and does something really stupid. Well, not really. If not, we wouldn’t have gotten «Ash vs Evil Dead» , would we? They start to read from the Necronomicon, which Ash keeps hidden and locked in his trailer, and shit starts to happen right away.

Produced by Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, Craig DiGregorio, and Robert Tapert, who produced all four «Evil Dead» films, finally gives what the fans have demanded since «The Army of Darkness» in -92. Give us more Evil Dead with Bruce! It took its time, but here it is. In a TV series, as the Raimi brothers did not have the money to make a fourth movie. But it works and the series (so far) has all the ingredients that will satisfy the fans. It has much of the tone and spirit of «Evil Dead II», mixing horror and comedy just perfect, and Bruce Campbell is still in great shape while playing the role of his life.

It develops into a road trip with the sidekicks Pablo and Kelly, in some kind of «Supernatural»-style while the world is becoming totally infected with the curse of the Necronomicon. We also get to visit the iconic cabin and meet Ash’s-right-possesed-hand. Some cheap CGI blood here and there, but for the most part the effects are practical and looks great. And an awesome soundtrack that includes Deep Purple and Alice Cooper is a plus.
