Ash has settled himself into a life that fits him. Low key and uneventful.
But, of course, The “evil dead” has something else in mind.
From the opening scene this is classic Raimi. At his best. He directed this episode, and it shows. There are so many scenes that have the same smell of Raimi before Spider Man.
The crazy over the top gore effects are– well over the top! And I say, good on them and Starz to take a chance on this kind of content!
In this story, the creators have added a couple of “pseudo-heros” (I say this respectively) that will carry Ash and them to the conclusion of this 10 part series (30 minutes each– already in the bag). It’s like a 5 hour Evil Dead movie!!!
Regardless, this start is freaking outstanding!!!!! Mr. Raimi, I was starting to lose faith in you. But if this is the quality of the entire series, you are back to being awesome in my book (of the dead).
