Thirty years after the events of Evil Dead, Ash is a loner, living a dull existence, still not able to come to grips with the events that started at the cabin. In the event of a Deadite invasion, Ash must attach his chainsaw and pick up his trusty boomstick one more time, all while finally coming to terms with his past.
Glory, Gory, Hallelujah!
Did You Know?
Early in the first episode, Ash is seen performing a "powerslide", which is a stunt that requires the driver to steer the car into a tight turn at high speeds, and apply the parking brake, which causes the back tires to lose traction with the road and slide into the turn. Bruce Campbell
has revealed that he was taught to perform this move by William Shatner
, who was known to perform the stunt regularly on T.J. Hooker
(1982). See more
