Fantastic Fest: Ash vs. Evil Dead: Season 2
Season 2 of Ash vs. Evil Dead starts on Sunday, October 2nd. I got to preview the first two episodes of the season and can give you a little of what to expect. Ash, Pablo, and Kelly are back and they are finally in Jacksonville, Florida having a great time until two females that you think are coming on to Ash end up possessed by demons (Deadites) and trying to kill him. They have a truce with Ruby (Lucy Lawless), but that doesn't last, so they head to Elk Grove, Michigan, Ash's hometown to find her to continue fighting the Deadite plague. I talked to the Bruce Campbell, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago, and Lee Majors about the new season. Check it out above.
Lee Majors of The Six-Million Dollar Man and The Fall Guy fame has been added to the cast as Ash's father, Brock Williams, that he hasn't seen in 30 years. He sees him when he gets to Elk Grove and asks if they can stay with him. They end up finding Ruby and they are trying to send her children back to hell. Problem is she has hidden the evil book in a dead body in a hospital morgue. When Ash goes to get the book, the intestines of the dead body won't release the book and the scene is one of the funniest that has happened in Ash vs. Evil Dead.
Kelly ends up even fighting herself in the new season and the face of the evil book gets attached to Pablo and he starts having premonitions, but that just may save their lives. Also, one of Ash's old flames, Lillian Pendergrass, is dating his father. But when Ash gets to the morgue, he sees that Lillian has died of pneumonia. Catch my drift? Hilarity ensues in the new season. There's even more gore this season and it's just as campy. With a campaign around the new season that states, "Glory, Gory, Hallelujah!" you know that you are in for a treat.
Even if you haven't watched Ash vs. Evil Dead yet, the first season only has 10 episodes so it's easy to get caught up. These characters by Sam Raimi are so much fun, you've just got to dive in.
