We’ve known Ash and his boomstick were coming back for another round of undead mayhem thanks to last year’s announcement of Ash vs. Evil Dead, an original series set to debut on Starz. The reveal was made at San Diego Comic-Con, and now that we’ve had a full year to dream about the possibilities, Starz is back at the annual celebration of all things geek to show off the first official trailer for the show.
The original Evil Dead trilogy are cult classics through and through, and now that several generations have had the chance to bask in their glory, the Starz show aims to bring a whole new group of fans into the fold.
Not shying away from the fact that Ash, played by Bruce Campbell, is a good bit older than he was in the original films, there’s plenty of age-related humor sprinkled throughout the brief sneak peek. There’s some heavy breathing, a pair of dentures, and even a leather girdle—or should we just called it an Ash Sash?
Oh, and there’s blood. Lots and lots of blood.
