Ash Vs. The Evil Dead
« on: April 03, 2015, 01:49:51 PM »
I consider this good news...mainly because it's going to be a direct sequel to Army of Darkness:

Quote
Evil Dead is coming back in a big, big way, people. Original creators Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are joining forces to bring the gruesome horror franchise to Starz. And yes, this does mean that Bruce Campbell will return as the one and only Ash Williams.

Variety is reporting that the Evil Dead series is a go at Starz. The official name of the 10-episode series is Ash Vs. Evil Dead.

So where will we find Ash? Turns out he's "the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead." But there's no rest for the Deadites. A new undead evil is about to be unleashed, and Ash has to get his crap together to fight eit.

In an interview, the original film's director Raimi hinted at both the return of the chainsaw arm and the "boomstick." Good. No doubt this being on Starz, there will be plenty of pausing for undead sex. There was undead sex in the previous franchise, but thanks to Starz's lax TV guidelines and hungry-for-flesh audience, we suspect there will be a whole lot nudity and bright red blood for horror fans. Please just be good.

Will TV save our flagging franchises?

Yes! And glad to see this on Starz. That means gore and sex.

Evil Dead is a franchise that could work well on uncensored TV.

Evil Dead news...

So my takeaway is that Army of Darkness is no longer canon. Though the series has retconned itself before (each movie retconned the last, after all).

I'm somewhat shocked, though I suppose I shouldn't be. Raimi and Tapert can go as gonzo as they want and no one will care. And since it's one Starz they can get as gory and crass as they want.

Raimi is directing the first episode.

Shocked about what? Starz will do anything.
