TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 Impresses With Ample Comedy, Horror, and Absurdity

Ash vs Evil Dead has returned for its third season, proving that this classic franchise still has a lot left in it as long as Bruce Campbell’s Ash is blasting away Deadites. When this season opens, Ash, Kelly, and Pablo have been somewhat moving on with their lives since supposedly ridding the world of evil, but it isn’t long before this same evil catches up to them and brings everyone together for another Deadite-killing adventure. Dana DeLorenzo and Ray Santiago of course return as Kelly and Pablo to kick some more demon ass, and so does Lucy Lawless as the conniving Ruby who I just love to hate. This season also sees the inception of a couple of new faces who bring a breath of fresh air to Elk Grove and may or may not play a major part in the series going forward.... Continue Reading

DVD Review: Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 is an outrageously entertaining thrill ride

Ash vs Evil Dead is the followup series to Sam Raimi‘s Evil Dead trilogy that pits Ash (Bruce Campbell) against more Deadites proving the chainsaw wielding, shit-talking badass can’t seem to escape the presence of evil. I am a huge fan of the original Evil Dead films as they inhibit a specific tone unlike any other horror/comedy I have ever seen. So when going into this series it was essential for it to emulate the humour and horror that made me love the films so much, and with the return of Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi as an executive producer it executes this flawlessly....

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2, Episode 10 “Second Coming” (USA, 2016) is a worthy finale

We’ve fought colons together, laughed at psychotic hand puppets, fought corrupted cars and traveled back in time. This, ladies and gentleman is Ash vs The Evil Dead. And while that list of outrageous incidents may raise an eyebrow when presented out of context, it really is just another day at the office for Ash, Kelly, Pablo and Ruby. Aside from a couple of forgettable episodes, season 2 of Ash vs Evil Dead has been a fantastic ride that saw character growth, cinematic action, actors being taken out of their comfort zone and terrific writing all converging to form a must watch show....

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2, Episode 8 “Ashy Slashy” (USA, 2016) is the best episode of the series yet

I was under the impression that Ash vs Evil Dead had reached it’s peak. That episodes like the last two and season one’s finale and Killer of Killers couldn’t be topped. After all, a goofy horror/comedy genre mash-up probably has no right to strive for anything brilliant. Right. Right? No. Ashy Slashy now holds the crown as the single greatest episode of the show yet and if it’s closing moments are any indication, it shows no signs of quitting while its ahead.... Continue Reading

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2, Episode 7 “Delusion” (USA, 2016)

I remember writing a review for a season one episode of Ash vs Evil Dead that started with “well that was different”. The final verdict was that it was the first mediocre episode of the series. Delusion also goes through a vicissitude, breaking the norm and presenting something totally different to what we have expected. Only this time, it works and it’s one of the best episodes yet.... Continue Reading
