Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 Premiere Review
by TS Alan
Fans of Ash vs Evil Dead got a surprise at this year’s New York Comic Con panel. After viewing the trailer, series star Bruce Campbell addressed the packed Hammerstein Ballroom, and announced that the audience would be the first to see the Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 premiere.
Ash is now the town hero, and now that he no longer has to kill Deadites, he’s opened his own hardware store/erotic boutique. Pablo (Ray Santiago) owns his own business, too–A taco stand!
[Minor Spoilers Below]:
All his happy and well in the town of Elk Grove. For about half a minute. It doesn’t take long for the Necromonicon to re-appear, and some dimwit to read from it (this time not Ash), which re-summons the evil the Ash and company have fought so long and hard to destroy.
At the local high school Ash gets into some mano-a-mano Ash-kicking against Cougy, the school mascot turned Deadite. Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) re-appears to help save his ash, along with series newcomer Dalton (Lindsay Farris), a member of the Knights of Sumeria, an ancient order dedicated to battling evil.
In the band room Ash takes on his long lost daughter’s best friend, using a music instrument in an inventive way for an awesome kill. Yep, Ash has got a kid, and high school senior Brandy (Arielle Carver-O’Neill) has an attitude. The boomstick doesn’t fall far from the Ash tree, apparently.
The debut was everything Ash vs Evil Dead fans expect and demand. Plenty of high-jinx, over-the-top blood splatter, chills, thrills, and kills. The Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 Premiere does not disappoint.
Ash vs Evil Dead season three premieres Sunday, February 25, 2018 at 9PM ET/PT on STARZ.
