Starz released a new red band trailer for Season 2 of Ash Vs. Evil Dead on July 19th, just one day before Comic-Con's opening night preview. They also announced Comic-Con would not show the trailer due to its graphic nature. In other words, it has been banned from the conference.
Fortunately, no video is too graphic or bloody for the internet. So I watched it twice. I am a bit hesitant to agree that any teaser for a TV show — network or otherwise — would be considered too gory for Comic-Con. But hey, what do I know? It's the second trailer for Season 2 and you can watch it here to decide for yourself:
About Season 2: Ash Vs. Evil Dead
The trailer puts Ash back in his home town, Elk Grove, just in time for "all hell to break loose." And honestly, the 2-minute video provides everything you need to know about the show. It's obvious the creative team is sticking with with the 3 C's that have always attracted The Evil Dead's cult following; chicks, chainsaws and campy lines.
If you love the following phrases you are already on board with the strategy:
- Give Me Some Sugar, Baby
- Fistful of Boomstick
- Come Get Some
Furthermore, Starz has promised an even bloodier and campier Season 2, which was made obvious in the first trailer released earlier this month. If you haven't seen it click play below:
Ash Vs. Evil Dead Delivers
Now a lot of people might think these trailers are too bloody to represent the actual ongoing episodes. If you haven't heard of the show, I suggest visiting the Starz website to find out what all the buzz is about. Ash vs Evil Dead has already been praised as the best horror show on television by audiences and critics alike.
Season 1 truly captured the heart and soul of the original movie trilogy. That means if you are a diehard fan of The Evil Dead movies, you should know what to expect, whether you have seen the show or not. Either way, make sure to catch up on or re-visit the first 10 episodes before the next season starts. Then stay tuned in October for the return of television's most animated bloodbath that isn't a cartoon.
So what do you think?
