Hey HOOQers, did you miss Ash Williams?
Gather all your courage as the horror-film franchise, Ash VS Evil Dead moves to the small screen.
HOOQ, Asia’s biggest video-on-demand service, partners with Starz Entertainment this Halloween to bring you the extreme gore of the highly anticipated Ash vs. Evil Dead exclusively on HOOQ, ahead of the US, for the first time in Asia.
The series stars Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash Williams.
Ash vs. Evil Dead premieres worldwide on 31 Oct and HOOQ will be the first and only platform in Asia to offer the series on the same day as the US. Get ready to indulge in more new and exciting TV series to be available on HOOQ’s diverse and expansive selection of over 30,000 hours of movies and TV series such as hot favorites and award-winning series Gotham, The Flash, Mad Men, Scandal, Rosemary’s Baby, Nashville and awesome action backed superhero blockbusters Thor and Captain America – The First Avenger.
The show, which kicks off with a Raimi-directed premiere, finds Campbell resuming the saga of Ash Williams, the aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has been avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead for 30 years now.
Ash is finally forced to face his demons – personal and literal when a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind. The “Deadites” are sinister spirits who turn unwitting people and inanimate objects into wise-cracking killing machines. Williams becomes mankind’s only hope. He must find a way to put the “genie back in the bottle,” as Campbell puts it or face world destruction.
The cast also features franchise newbies Lucy Lawless, Mimi Rogers and Jill Marie Jones, among others, while retaining the series’ hilarious, Three Stooges–inspired “splat-tick” humor — making for a viewing experience that’s less Walking Dead and more “mocking dead.”
The first season of the show will feature 10 half-hour episodes of events getting worse and worse for Williams as he tries to contain the evil Deadites.
“We’ll see where it takes up beyond that,” Campbell says in an interview, teasing a continuation of the plot into a second season. “I think fans are gonna get their money’s worth,” he says. “We’re not pushing our way through this. We’re taking it very seriously. We know what the fans demand — and we’re giving them exactly what they demand.”
Watch the trailer here:
This series that has critics, horror fans, and film enthusiasts abuzz sees actor Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash Williams from the original Evil Dead series as the chainsaw-wielding, monster-shredding slacker. Anti-hero Ash Williams, now somewhat aged but still quick-witted as ever, fights the forces of evil that turn unsuspecting people and inanimate objects into wise-cracking killing machines called Deadites. Ash vs. Evil Dead also features franchise newcomers Lucy Lawless, Mimi Rogers, and Jill Marie Jones. Enjoy “splat-stick” at its finest as the offbeat and endearing characters find themselves in gruesomely hilarious situations with Deadites.
