Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It’s finally happening! Bruce Campbell returns to the role that made him the king of B 10/31/15 in “Ash vs Evil Dead” on the Starz network! For years, I’ve been ridiculed that this would never happen, but now those neh-sayers can suck a fat one. We’ve had Evil Dead aka Army of Darkness comics, musicals, and a re-make to help pass the time these last 20+ years with, but now we get the legit continuance of Ash’s journey that made him arguably the greatest horror movie hero of all time.

What’s even better is the involvement of Evil Dead creator Sam Raimi who’ll be directing the first episode of what looks to be a kick-ass series full of epic fights and storyline. This definitely makes up for all those times Sam Raimi pissed me off over the years when I’d watch movies of his post “Army of Darkness” like “Drag Me to Hell” that could have easily been made into an “Evil Dead” sequel. Not to mention all those times he’d tease/acknowledge horror fans with his Evil Dead antics briefly popping up in other movies he’d directed,  like that scene in “Spider-Man 2” when Doc Ock’s tentacles are killing everyone in the operation room. That scene had me wishing they had cast Bruce Campbell as the surgeon fighting his tentacles with the chainsaw instead of the doorman who keeps Spider-Man from a date.

Now, there are some who are probably disappointed that they’re producing a TV series as opposed to a full fledge/high budget movie, but I think this is better. We’ve been waiting decades for more adventures with Ash, and this allows us to really be involved with the character and take our time with him instead of a wham bam thank you ma’m hour and a half on a movie screen until who knows when! We’ve been really pumped about this, and our heads are about to explode after seeing the trailer they released which can be seen below.

Other than that, that’s all we really have to talk about right now. Be sure you’re caught up with the rest of Screaming Soup! Season 2 and come back here 7/20/15 for the next exciting episode of Screaming Soup!
