ASH VS EVIL DEAD, now in its third season on Starz Sunday nights, represents a very particular sort of career triumph for its star Bruce Campbell. By now, the origin story has gained folklore status: in 1979, Campbell and his friends, director Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert, then young men in Michigan, raised $350,000 to make a low-budget horror film, THE EVIL DEAD, which was released in 1981, starring Campbell as inadvertent demon-summoner Ash Williams. The trio went on to make EVIL DEAD II (1987) and its studio-sponsored follow-up ARMY OF DARKNESS. The friends also came together to make the […]Read On »

In the EVIL DEAD universe, Bruce Campbell’s antihero Ash Williams has always been more or less alone (usually because he’s accidentally managed to get everybody else killed). However, in ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, now in its second season on Starz Sunday nights, Ash has acquired two loyal companions. Pedro Simon Bolivar, played by Ray Santiago, and Kelly Maxwell, portrayed by Dana DeLorenzo, both worked with Ash at a big box store before the place got trashed by Deadites, aka the Evil Dead of the title. Now Kelly is out for vengeance against the Deadites for killing her parents, and Pablo […]Read On »

In Season 2 of Starz’s ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, starting Sunday October 2, the antihero played by Bruce Campbell has more company in his fight.

Emery, who used to be Ash’s girlfriend, and Lee Majors as Ash’s dad Brock Williams, who still thinks that Ash murdered his own sister, Brock’s daughter. This […]Read On »

Few composers who continually get pulled back into a genre that gave them birth have as much fun both screaming, and laughing about continually being clawed by their fateful, creative relationship than Joseph LoDuca. Born in Michigan around the same time as another native with whom he’d be joined at the hip, LoDuca was well into fulfilling his rock and roll aspirations with the big town likes of Jeff Beck and Bob Seger before getting the call to enter a possessed cabin in the backwoods. The result of his impressively frenetic, orchestral score done a dime was the beginning of […]Read On »

The Scoop on ASH VS. EVIL DEAD

Executive producer Robert Tapert, star of the series and executive producer Bruce Campbell along with executive producer Sam Raimi, original filmmakers of the EVIL DEAD franchise, start production on the TV series ASH VS. EVIL DEAD which will premiere this fall on Starz | © 2015 Starz

When best friends director/writer Sam Raimi, producer Robert G. Tapert and actor Bruce Campbell made the short film WITHIN THE WOODS in their native Michigan, they were hoping to make the feature that became 1981’s THE EVIL DEAD. They didn’t realize they were launching a horror franchise that would spawn 1987’s EVIL DEAD II and 1992’s ARMY OF DARKNESS, plus a 2013 remake. They were expecting even less that, in 2015, they’d all be working on the television series ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, which will premiere on Starz later this year. The three men, who have all enjoyed enormous success […]Read On »
