‘Ash vs Evil Dead': Bruce Campbell Talks Blood, Sidekicks, and Hating Ash’s Car

Christina Radish writes:

Starz’s 10-episode half-hour series Ash vs. Evil Dead is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise from Sam Raimi (who also directed the first episode). Aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter Ash (Bruce Campbell) has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of Deadites. But when a plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons, whether he likes it or not.

Having gotten the opportunity to screen the first two episodes, I can say that it’s funny, it’s over-the-top gory, and it’s absolutely everything that I want and expect from The Evil Dead franchise. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Bruce Campbell talked about how gratifying it is that there are still so many fans of Ash and Evil Dead, why it was more feasible to continue this story as a TV series, how bizarre it was to get back on set and into this character’s shoes, why he likes the half-hour pacing of the show, pushing the envelope on the blood and gore, getting to have sidekicks, why he hates that car, and that he feels they’re only just getting started with the story.
