Ash Williams, general deadbeat and failure, has a secret. As a youth, Ash witnessed his friends murdered and then possessed by an unspeakable evil. Summoning every ounce of his strength, he was able to push that evil back where it came from and keep the world safe. In the present day, after a drunken party trick gone wrong, Ash has unleashed the evil into the world again, and those evil forces are gunning for revenge.
If you haven’t already seen first three Evil Dead films, let me warn you: this series is incredibly gory. However, despite the literal blood and guts flying all over the place, the show remains light, campy, and a little irreverent. Ash vs. the Evil Dead remains true to the spirit of the films—that is to say tastelessly gruesome.
