Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3

You know you’re about to see something crazy when Bruce Campbell comes out on stage wearing a Hugh Hefner-like pimp suit. That was just the first of many amazing surprises in store for us at the Ash vs Evil Dead panel Saturday afternoon at New York Comic-Con.

There was already an air of anticipation in the Hammerstein Ballroom in the moments leading up to the cast’s entrance on stage. But luckily we didn’t have to stare at a blank screen or listen to a hype man try to pump up the crowd. On the screen in an endless loop was a vintage clip of a bobcat mascot in a high school hallway staring menacingly at the camera from a distance. Then in the next moment, there’s a jump cut with the mascot much closer to the camera. This time it had blood streaming from its eye sockets. Just like that, the audience was hooked. And it wasn’t even time for the panel yet. This was idle time!

evil dead 4 - bruce campbell

In retrospect, it’s obvious why Evil Dead 4 never came together. Sure, Army of Darkness is beloved now, but it was a box office whimper back in 1992. And then director Sam Raimi became one of the biggest and busiest filmmakers in Hollywood with the original Spider-Man trilogy. And then Drag Me to Hell, a spiritual cousin of sorts to the Evil Dead movies, was a financial bust. The external factors alone, including a very good remake, made a big screen continuation the original Evil Dead series feel nearly impossible.

Of course, the new adventures of Bruce Campbell‘s chainsaw-armed demon hunter have found a new home on Starz with Ash vs. Evil Dead, which is set to return for its second season this fall. In the meantime, the first season has just hit Blu-ray and DVD and Raimi has revealed some of the abandoned concepts for the never-made Evil Dead 4. It seems that various creative issues also kept this project from finding life.
