ash_vs_evil_dead_trailer_1When a beloved franchise announces that they’re going to return after a near-30 year gap, you have to take that news with an appropriate amount of hesitance. But when said franchise returns with such a wild, insane trailer like the new Ash vs Evil Dead, any doubts kinda just fade away. You can’t watch this new footage and not have a giant grin on your face the entire way through – it’s like Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and crew haven’t missed a beat! How will the narrative unfold over a long-form series remains to be said, but more Ash doesn’t seem like a bad thing anymore!

Ash and the deadites (and possibly some new wickedly demonic creatures) return this October on Starz.
