Ash vs Evil Dead: Bruce Campbell & Rob Tapert Tease Cameos from Original Films

At San Diego Comic-Con, Bruce Campbell, Rob Tapert, and Lee Majors hint about revisiting the events and characters of the first Evil Dead.

Ashley Williams, the chainsaw-handed and dubious messiah of Ash vs Evil Dead has had a sordid family history. That kind of comes with the territory when you read from the Book of the Dead, and it directly leads to the possession and hellbound slaughter of your sister, as seen in the original The Evil Dead. Yet, that familial freak out caused by Bruce Campbell’s buffoonish anti-hero has never been really referenced in the subsequent sequels and TV show spin-offs… until now.

While chatting with Campbell and Ash executive producer Rob Tapert during separate roundtable interviews at San Diego Comic-Con, I brought up the fact that Ash is not only revisiting his father, who is being played by TV legend Lee Majors, for the first time in any medium, but that he inevitably will also have to address the death of his sister. Incidentally, the thing about death in properties like Evil Dead is that characters don’t need to stay gone.
