When last we saw Stan Against Evil’s titular curmudgeon (John C. McGinley), things were looking awfully apocalyptic in Willard’s Mill. At the press room and panel for the IFC horror-comedy at Comic-Con, we learned a lot more about what to expect from season three, starting with this trailer:
James Wan reveals the wonderfully simple way people will talk under water in Aquaman. Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly can never escape questions about where they were during the events of Infinity War. Plus, our best look yet at the new Predator design, and more footage from Preacher’s return. Spoilers get!
The Cyborg solo movie will revisit the hero’s origins. Get an even better look at Iron Man’s Avengers: Infinity War armor. Another familiar face could return for the John Wick TV series. Plus, behind the scenes on A Wrinkle in Time, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge on Ron Howard’s take on Solo: A Star Wars Story. Spoilers get!
Stan Against Evil wraps up its second season tomorrow night with its last set of back-to-back episodes. We’ve got an exclusive look at the finale, and while there’s no Stan in the clip, it does feature a time-traveling Sheriff Evie (Janet Varney) meeting Deputy Leon (Nate Mooney) for what he thinks is the first time.
Stan Against Evil’s first season was enjoyable, but it suffered due to its undeniable similarities to Ash vs. Evil Dead. With Ash’s next season still AWOL, Stan stands alone in the cranky-old-dude-fighting-demons zone—and happily, IFC’s horror comedy has finally found its footing in season two.
When we last saw Stan (John C. McGinley), the demon-fighting ex-sheriff of Willard’s Mill, he’d just survived the craziest events of Stan Against Evil’s first season. Unfortunately, he was left unable to remember some very key stuff—which begins to haunt him in this clip from the season two premiere.
With today’s news that the long-awaited Ash vs. Evil Dead third season won’t be hitting the airwaves until February 25 (sob), here’s something in the same vein to tide you over: the latest season two trailer for IFC’s similar-but-not-quite-identical Stan Against Evil.
Season one of horror comedy Stan Against Evil packed a ton of witch-slaying into eight fast-paced episodes—and while it wasn’t the most original thing we’d ever seen, star John C. McGinley’s endearingly boorish performance was enough to make us cheer when season two was announced. Now we finally have a new trailer,…
Channing Tatum says the Gambit movie is still on its way. Legion casts a Wonder Woman star as its major villain. The first look at Fahrenheit 451 is here. Plus, a better look at Iron Man’s armor in Infinity War, a new yet weirdly familiar Justice League picture, and the name of the next season of American Horror Story…
This year has been full of new half-hour comedies that have some sort of science fiction-y component. And where that hasn’t worked so well in the past, at least two of them have already been renewed.
In any other dimension, Stan Against Evil, IFC’s horror comedy about a 50-something curmudgeon fated to fight demons, would be a fresh and deliciously gory new treat. In one where it must co-exist alongside the superior Ash Vs Evil Dead, however, it comes off a bit stale in comparison.
Suspiria’s star will return for the remake. A familiar face from Prometheus will appear in Alien: Covenant. An old American Horror Story character will return for Roanoke. Plus, new Power Rangers images, more confirmation of characters returning for The Defenders, and Gotham casts Catwoman’s mom. Spoilers Get!
Not to be outdone by Syfy’s “31 Days of Halloween,” IFC has its own October gimmick in the works: “Wake Up and Smell the Evil,” which unleashes B-movie horrors every weekend morning this month. That’s right, morning—because nothing goes better with bacon and a hangover than Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster.
As soon as we heard about IFC’s horror comedy Stan Against Evil, it reminded us a lot of Ash vs Evil Dead. And now that the first trailer has dropped, we see the similarities even more. Still, Stan—about a retired sheriff (John C. McGinley) who’s reluctantly pressed into service as a demon fighter—looks like it’ll be…
IFC’s new show Stan Against Evil has many, many elements that excite us. It’s a horror comedy in the vein of our beloved Ash vs Evil Dead. It stars the hilarious John C. McGinley (Scrubs, Office Space). And according to these first images, its definition of “evil” will include at least one angry devil-goat man.
Back in February, we learned that Simpsons vet Dana Gould was cooking up a horror comedy for IFC called Stan Against Evil, with a premise (crabby middle-aged anti-hero fights demons) that reminded us of Ash vs Evil Dead. Now the show has cast its most important role, and it’s an inspired choice: John C. McGinley.
IFC is getting in on the current witch/Satan/hellfire trend with an eight-episode order of Stan Against Evil, a comedy from Emmy-winning Simpsons writer and producer Dana Gould. The description sounds a wee bit like Ash vs Evil Dead—which is a total compliment—though a lot will depend on who gets cast.
