For decades, Evil Dead lovers have begged, pleaded, and pestered director Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell for another movie. None of the three films were huge box office smashes, and none were critically acclaimed in their initial release. But on home video and cable they methodically built one of the most passionate and loyal fanbases in all of horror moviedom. And that fanbase wanted more.

Evil Dead plans to dole out its brand of horror.
Starz’s Halloween-tinged Ash Vs. Evil Dead gave us a refresher course on Sam Raimi’s horror mastery by the most recent trailer, but no harm ever came from investigating a little deeper, right Ash?
