Though there’s no sign of the boom stick, Ash seems well-prepped to again take on the Deadites in this brief but bloody new teaser. From the minds of original creator Sam Raimi, star Bruce Campell and producer Rob Topert comes “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” the Starz horror series set to pick up 30 years after we last saw the chainsaw-wielding monster murderet do what he does best.
Reprising his role as the titular Ash, Campbell resurfaces in the series as an aging stockboy who’s been trying to avoid anything meaningful since he last conquered evil. But when a Deadite plague threatens mankind, out comes Ash’s most lethal weapons: the chainsaw, boom stick and sarcastic comments.
“Ash vs. Evil Dead” premieres this fall on Starz with Lucy Lawless as a mysterious figure who suspects Ash is the source of all evil. Pablo Simon Bolivar becomes our hero’s new sidekick, but Jill Marie Jones co-stars as a cop trying to prove Ash killed her partner. Looks like Ash is outnumbered yet again. Good thing he’s okay with those odds.
Watch the teaser trailer above.
