Bruce Campbell will strap on his chainsaw again on February 25 when Ash vs. Evil Dead returns for season three. The first teaser trailer is now here and things look bloody as ever, with a little dose of daddy issues.
We’ve all watched a movie where a character gets hurt and thought “They’d never survive that in real life.” Well, a new book will put that to the test with some super gruesome and awesome drawings.
Starz has yet to reveal the season three premiere date for horror comedy Ash vs. Evil Dead (apparently, even star Bruce Campbell doesn’t know when the show will be back). In the meantime, you can pick up the season two DVD on August 22, and peek at what has to be one of the grossest bonus features ever below.
Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy is one of those series that has almost too much merchandise, in the form of toys, props, t-shirts—you name it, and it’s probably been licensed. One thing we’ve never seen, though, is maybe the best of the bunch: this custom bird feeder that looks exactly like the haunted cabin from the…
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly round up of all things merchandise. This week we’ve got even more San Diego Comic-Con exclusives to drool over, some new Lego from the upcoming Ninjago movie, and the best plastic recreation of Bruce Campbell’s face the world has ever seen. Really!
The first season of Ash vs Evil Dead was nonstop insane mayhem, continuing a story that began 35 years ago in the most rewarding way possible. How could the second season possibly top that? Sam Raimi had the answer: raise the stakes, allow certain characters to evolve, and make everything at least 10 times gorier.
Last week’s Ash vs Evil Dead saw Bruce Campbell’s cocky hero trapped in a grimy asylum ruled by a sinister doctor who looked an awful lot like the demon Baal, and filled with other characters who were dead ringers for Ruby, Kelly, and Pablo. Obviously, this was some kind of Baal-induced mindfuckery. Right?
Last week’s Ash vs Evil Dead ended with Ash’s worst fear coming true: his beloved Delta was heisted by teenage joyriders. On this week’s “Last Call,” Ash throws a party with his longtime buddy, sleazy bartender Chet (Ted Raimi), to lure back the car thieves. Did we mention the Necronomicon’s in the car, too?
Ever wonder what it would be like to watch a scary movie with Bruce Campbell and Lucy Lawless? You wouldn’t have time to scream, because you’d be too busy laughing your ass off. The stars of one of our favorite TV shows, Ash vs Evil Dead, recently sat down to offer their takes on some of horror’s most iconic moments.
We already knew Ash vs Evil Dead was one of the goriest shows on television. But it’s incredible to see how much prep work goes into staging those splatter-y scenes—and how many practical effects are used. This new featurette offers a peek at some of the show’s grosser effects. (Two words: “blood cannon.”)
It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Ash vs Evil Dead here at io9. It’s one of the funniest, goriest shows ever to grace the airwaves, and after all, it’s based on one of the greatest horror trilogies of all time. With season two kicking off this weekend, we’ve been thinking about what we’d like to see in the new…
Ash vs Evil Dead returns to Starz on October 2, but if you simply cannot wait to see the first episode of season two (we saw it at San Diego Comic-Con, and can confirm it’s blood-gushingly delightful), here’s how to watch it early. As in, later today. No cable required!
We’re just over a month away from Ash vs Evil Dead’s October 2 return to the airwaves. “I guess it’s safe to say the truce is over,” Ash announces in this behind-the-scenes peek, which contains (awesomely gory) footage from the first episode as “Ashy Slashy” heads back to his Michigan hometown of Elk Grove.
We love Ash vs Evil Dead. And we get why the show is the most excellent way to continue Ash’s adventures as he blasts his way through his 50s. But that doesn’t mean we don’t wish that, back in the day, Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and company had made Evil Dead 4—especially now that we’ve heard a few of Raimi’s ideas.
Ash vs Evil Dead returns October 2, just in time for Halloween season, and also the last few weeks leading up to something even more terrifying: the 2016 election. The official season two poster dropped today with a winking nod to patriotism, and with it a reminder that the best salutes are done with chainsaws.
Horror legends Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell hunker down for the commentary track of Ash vs Evil Dead’s first episode, in which Ash, Campbell’s extremely reluctant hero, realizes he hasn’t quite left those nasty Deadites in the past after all.
Ash vs Evil Dead recently bumped up its return date from Halloween to October 2, and the gifts just keep coming. Here’s first look at season two’s big bad, a powerful demon named Baal who’s played by Joel Tobeck (Sons of Anarchy, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King).
The cast and crew of Ash vs Evil Dead did a great job talking up season two at the show’s Comic-Con panel and press room. But the ultimate proof that the show’s return is cause for celebration came with a preview screening of the first episode, which won’t air on Starz until Halloween. It’s fantastic.
Yesterday’s Ash vs Evil Dead Comic-Con panel was catnip for all the gorehounds who turned out to see Bruce “El Jefe” Campbell in person—as well as Sam Raimi, Lucy Lawless, Lee Majors, Ted Raimi, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago and Rob Tapert. Most also participated in a press room earlier in the day.
As we count the seconds until Ash vs Evil Dead returns in October, we can gaze upon this first image of Ash’s father, played by Lee Majors. The actor is best-known for his role as the bionic superspy on 1970s TV juggernaut The Six Million Dollar Man, and though he’s now almost 80, he still looks more than ready to…
