Starz is delivering a delicious Halloween treat tonight with the premiere of Ash vs The Evil Dead starring the one and only Bruce Campbell. Fans of The Evil Dead trilogy have been anxiously awaiting the return of Ash for 30 years and tonight that extreme patience will finally pay off. Considering many of you will be out and about tonight, Starz is offering the ability to watch The Evil Dead online free live streaming of episode 101, ‘El Jefe,’ from mobile devices so you don’t have to wait any longer than necessary.
Ash vs The Evil Dead is a sequel to the previous films starring Campbell as a beaten down man who has successfully beaten the Deadites on numerous occasions. Ash has spent the past 30 years hiding out to avoid any more encounters with the “Evil Dead” that were the reason behind him chopping off his own hand and doing other unsavory things.
Original film producers and writers Ivan Raimi, Sam Raimi and Tom Spezialy have returned to pen the Ash vs Evil Dead pilot where Ash is once again force to battle the Deadites, only this time with much higher stakes. Jill Marie Jones, Ray Santiago, Dana Delorenzo and Lucy Lawless round out the main cast.
Starz has filmed a total of 10 episodes of Ash vs The Evil Dead for its first season. A second season was ordered by Starz this past week before the first premiered.
The start time for tonight’s big Ash vs The Evil Dead premiere episode on Halloween night is 9/8c exclusively on the Starz cable network. Starz also offers Ash vs The Evil Dead live online streaming via their Starz Play website and mobile app here where you can watch tonight’s episode without a TV.
Unfortunately it doesn’t look like Amazon.com will be offering Ash vs The Evil Dead episodes via video-on-demand so you’ll need a Starz subscription or you’ll have to wait for the inevitable Blu-ray and DVD release.
