The cable network Starz has released a second trailer for the TV series sequel to the classic Evil Dead films, Ash vs. Evil Dead. If you missed the first trailer, check it out when we previewed the show first here at borg.com. Whether or not you’ve seen the originals, we see two big reasons to give the show a try.
First, how can you not love Bruce Campbell? As Ash Williams, he is one of our favorite members of the Borg Hall of Fame. Although it was Evil Dead that made him known worldwide, we loved him back in his Hercules, The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess days as the Errol Flynn inspired Autolycus. He reprised his role as Ash in Army of Darkness, but also popped up all over the place in shows from Knots Landing (what?) to The X-Files, from Homicide: Life on the Street to Lois and Clark and Charmed, and from Psych to The Librarians. His two series with Campbell in the lead, The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. and Jack of All Trades are the stuff of cult classic legend. And his pop culture status has only grown through roles in Darkman, Congo, The Hudsucker Proxy, Escape from L.A., McHale’s Navy, The Majestic, Spider-man, and Sky High. And his best TV is undoubtedly Sam Axe on Burn Notice.
Second, Lucy Lawless back in a show with Bruce Campbell? That’s just… neat.
Here is Bruce Campbell in the second trailer for humor-filled gore-fest that is Ash vs Evil Dead:
And someone finally got the memo–a horror event premiering on Halloween! Bravo!
