“Ash vs Evil Dead” S02E10: Second Coming

Published on :

Ash vs Evil Dead isn’t a show too based in narrative weight. After all, coming from the original Evil Dead series that always swung for the bizarre and brazen more than it has dramatic heft. Even the original film – for all its over the top early Bruce Campbell face contortions – was more over the top than […]

For the holidays you can’t beat home sweet home.

“Ash vs Evil Dead” S02E08: Ashy Slashy

Published on :

Ash Williams has been through a lot. On this season of Ash vs Evil Dead alone, he’s lost his father, his best friend and his sister… again.

“Ash vs Evil Dead” S02E07: Delusion

Published on :

Ash vs Evil Dead loves to experiment with the reality our characters perceive. It’s something Craig DiGregorio and his team of writers have carried over from Sam Raimi’s style in the original films. With “Delusion” though, it’s a whole different ball game. The context of “Delusion” is one I was honestly dreading when I heard about […]

“Ash vs Evil Dead” S02E04: DUI

Published on :

After an ending as insane as last week, Ash vs Evil Dead needed to up the ante with the follow up. As Ash says while scooping up the brain of his father, “everyone in his life ends up being taken,” putting Pablo, Kelly and even poor little Eli at risk of being destroyed by Deadites. The […]

“Ash vs Evil Dead” S02E03: Last Call

Published on :

This weekend marked the 35th anniversary of The Evil Dead premiering. So, what better way for Ash to celebrate his birthday than a round of drinks on Ash vs Evil Dead?! Well, there’s an ulterior motive to Ash’s decadent actions this week. Specifically to draw in those damn punk kids who took his one true love: that 1973 Oldsmobile […]

“Ash vs Evil Dead” S02E02: The Morgue

Published on :

Season 1 of Ash vs Evil Dead was about the building of a surrogate family. Loner Ash found himself thrust into a small family unit with Pablo and Kelly, one that lasted through a series of nightmarish encounters. We see a bit of that connection in a lovely scene where Kelly calls Pablo a “strong, powerful” vagina […]
