Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell Explain How ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ Is the Revival Fans Wanted

Fred Topel writes:

My most anticipated panel at the Television Critics Association summer press tour was the Starz panel for Ash Vs. Evil Dead. Bruce Campbell dominated the panel, both via questions asked of him, and those asked of his costars and collaborators. Wearing a white dinner jacket and what could’ve quite possibly been alligator shoes (from this distance from the stage), Campbell made sure to let the room know he was there as he talked about the bloody show and his long relationship with fans.

'Ash Vs. Evil Dead' answers the important question: Will there be blood?

From the horror movie franchise that coined the term "splatstick," there's one thing the new Starz TV series extension of the "Evil Dead" movies needs to get right: It needs to be bloody. And star Bruce Campbell is ready to answer fans, yes, there will be blood.

EW: Ash vs. Evil Dead is not a 'watered-down version' of the films, says Bruce Campbell

Ash is back, baby — and despite moving to TV, he won’t be pulling any punches.

In Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead, Bruce Campbell reprises his role as 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. Now, when a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons — personal and literal.

“It would be silly of us to rip the fans off by doing a watered-down version of the series,” Campbell said Friday at the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour. “If this came out as a movie, it would be unrated. … The beauty of working with Starz is we have no content restriction whatsoever.”

Bruce Campbell Says ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’ Series Could Lead To More ‘Dead’ Movies – TCA

“This series will force us to make more movies,” Bruce Campbell said today at the TCA session. “That’s only 10 hours of programming; we need eight more movies,” the Ash Vs. Evil Dead star joked about what the franchise’s zealous fans would demand. “Making a fourth movie would work. … No matter what we give them, it will never be enough.”

Garth Manor Brings out the Dead: FX maestro Robert Kurtzman on the seminal Evil Dead 2

The elevator pitch for 1987's classic comedy-horror Evil Dead 2 would be simple: the same, but more. More blood, more monsters, more chain saw-wielding craziness. Without the beast-wrangling skills of effects genius Robert Kurtzman, the sequel would have had much less splatter. Kurtzman still leaves his bloody handprint over contemporary creature flicks like last year's werewolf wonder Late Phases, but he returns to the scene of one of his original crimes with a special 35mm screening, courtesy of the ghouls of Garth Manor.

SDCC: ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’s’ Campbell, Lawless & More Spill Their Guts

“I haven’t come to a comic con promoting an ‘Evil Dead’ since probably ‘Army of Darkness,'” “Ash vs Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell declared during an interview with press at Comic-Con International in San Diego. “But I don’t think I even came to Comic-Con at that time for ‘Army of Darkness’ — which was 24 years ago. It’s great. It’s the maximum potential, because now people aren’t going, [whiny voice] ‘Hey, I remember you. You’re the guy that was Ash.’ They’re like, ‘You’re fucking Ash! You’re playing Ash.’ It makes people very happy.”

Campbell responded to a fan who was asking about “The Classic” and stated that the original vehicle was shipped to New Zealand for the filming of the 10-episode show.
