Anchor Bay Entertainment has just announced the upcoming release of the Starz television series Ash vs. Evil Dead, bringing it to DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in August.
Bruce Campbell reprises 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 also includes Lucy Lawless as Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick, Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past and Jill Marie Jones 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.
As bonus materials, the release features all ten half-hour episodes from the show’s first season, accompanied by Audio Commentaries on select episodes. In addition, the release contains a number of Featurettes, such as ”Ash Inside the World,” “How to Kill a Deadite” and ”Best of Ash”.
“Ash vs. Evil Dead” will be in stores on August 23 and can be yours for $39.98 on DVD and $49.99 on Blu-Ray Disc.
