“Ash vs the Evil Dead” S01E09: Bound in Flesh / S01E10: The Dark One

Published on :

First of all, apologies for the double review for the final two episodes of Ash vs the Evil Dead. I got caught up in New Years plans and work, forcing me to combine these two into one article. Plus, as I was trying to write about “Bound in Flesh”, I honestly couldn’t find too much to say […]

“Ash vs the Evil Dead” S01E08: Ashes to Ashes

Published on :

It only seems appropriate that this week’s Ash vs the Evil Dead aired the same weekend as the release of Star Wars The Force Awakens. As I’ve mentioned on Horror News Radio, modern Hollywood’s newest recurring trend is (as ScreenCrush’s Matt Singer dubs it) “The Legacyquel“, in which an older property is essentially rebooted with the help of […]

“Ash vs the Evil Dead” S01E06: The Killer of Killers

Published on :

Forward momentum is an elusive mistress for Ash vs the Evil Dead. Just when I thought things were kicking back into higher gear with last week’s return to form episode, this week’s spends roughly 80% of its running time meandering with hit or miss character moments and re-expositing plot points we’re aware of.

Published on :

The Evil Dead was never a film series deeply rooted in logic or reason.

Published on :

Ash J. Williams has always been a loner. The Evil Dead essentially taught the Deadite killer that he could only rely on his own wits to get him out of a situation the hard way. Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness even taught him that a demonic evil could come from within to challenge him. Now with Ash vs […]

“Ash vs the Evil Dead” S01E01: El Jefe

Published on :

The Starz horror TV series Ash vs the Evil Dead grabs its audience’s attention quickly within the opening minutes as Bruce Campbell shakes and grooves to Deep Purple’s Space Truckin’. “One more for Bubba,” Ash slyly references another film early in the opening of the pilot episode “El Jefe” to let the audience know what they are […]
