Ash Vs Evil Dead

The hands down highlight of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, at least on the horror front, was Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” which debuted a trailer so full of awesome last night that the community was set ablaze with unbridled excitement. Soon, the show gets its own toy line.

Though “Ash vs. Evil Dead” doesn’t premiere on Starz until Halloween night, toy company NECA just announced on Twitter that they’ve picked up a license for the series.

Yes we have the licenses for Hateful 8 and the new ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ show,” they wrote. “More on those in the Fall.”

Once we have images to show off, you better believe you’ll find them right here on Dread!

About “Ash vs. Evil Dead”
Ash vs. Evil Dead” is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and will premiere on STARZ October 31, 2015. The 10-episode first season of the half-hour series is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers of the franchise, and Craig DiGregorio, who serves as executive producer and showrunner.

Campbell is reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario, and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity, and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons – personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick; Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past; and Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.
