Where did I see something like this before?...
27 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

So "Stan Against Evil" came out in 2016. Excuse me, but has creator Dana Gould not been watching "Ash vs Evil Dead"? Did he want to make an homage to "Ash vs Evil Dead"? Or did he just blatantly rip off everything from that successful show to make "Stan Against Evil"? I do not know. I can only speculate.

Regardless, "Stan Against Evil" turned out to be an entertaining enough show for what it was. But the similarities to "Ash vs Evil Dead" were just an overshadowing factor that served as an anchor around the foot of "Stan Against Evil". I mean, heck, even the title itself is so close to "Ash vs Evil Dead" that it borders on being something that The Asylum would have put out there.

As for the characters in "Stan Against Evil", well they were well-detailed and well-fleshed out on the screen. But again, the similarities to "Ash vs Evil Dead" was just too much. Stan, who is played quite well by John C. McGinley, is an aging man with a big attitude and it seems that the entire world is just out to get him and his sly remarks.

Lets just stop to take in another similarity between the two shows; the book. There is a most vicious and gruesome book in both shows. Coincidence? I beg to differ.

The episodes though are fun and do provide good entertainment, however they seem awfully short, running at just 30 minutes each. But if you enjoyed "Ash vs Evil Dead", then you will also enjoy "Stan Against Evil", if you can look past the in-your-face-similarities between the two shows. The eight episodes of season 1 just flies by in an instant, and I do hope that they return for more than just a single season.

"Stan Against Evil" has good effects as well, which do help the show in a favorable way. A show or movie set in a horror genre needs to have good effects, as it is a make or break kind of a factor.

I enjoyed "Stan Against Evil", despite of it being a blatant rip-off of "Ash vs Evil Dead" (in my opinion). And I was more than impressed with John C. McGinley's performance. It was a blast to watch him in a show and a role such as this.
