Visitors to this week’s Comic-Con in San Diego will see many strange sights. But one thing they won’t be viewing is the new, NSFW red band trailer for Ash vs Evil Dead, the Bruce Campbell-starring horror-comedy show, which, according to the folks at Starz, has been deemed “too gory” to show at the event.
Is this really true? Or phoney-baloney hucksterism? We cannot say. Although we can say the clip features new cast members Lee Majors — who play’s Ash’s father — and Ted Raimi, em>and that it has blood to spare.
Evil Dead superfan Kid Cudi premiered the trailer on his Twitter account, along with a whole bunch of excitement and emojis. See his tweets — and that bloody red band trailer — below.
Starz also released a cool, retro poster in time for Comic-Con, which will be available at the Ash vs Evil Dead cabin in Petco Park Interactive Zone during the big event this weekend.
Ash vs Evil Dead season 2 is expected to premiere this October on Starz.
