added: Mon, Oct 26th '15

He may be a bit older, a bit bolder, and perhaps a bit more heavier, but Ash still has a way with the ladies, that's for sure.

Check out the opening scene of "Ash vs The Evil Dead," STARZ's new action-horror-comedy series that sees genre favorite Bruce Campbell reprising his iconic role as the chainsaw-handed, slick-talking demon slayer, Ash Williams.

The 10-episode series, which has been set up as the long-awaited sequel in the "Evil Dead" franchise, continues the monster-filled adventures of reluctant anti-hero, Ash, who has been laying low for the past three decades, but is dragged back into the demon-killing game when he finds himself marked for death by wretched spirits. Campbell's Ash also finds himself teaming up with a baby-faced sidekick (played by Ray Santiago) and a no-nonsense skeptic (Dana Delorenzo). Lucy Lawless and Jill Marie Jones also star.

"Evil Dead" mastermind Sam Raimi is directing the pilot episode, which is set to premiere on the STARZ network this Saturday, Halloween Night, October 31st.

"Ash vs Evil Dead" follows 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.
