The scene also features Ash's famous car, the 1973 Delta 88
Fans of Ash vs Evil Dead are accustomed to seeing people (and other things) die onscreen — in fact, that’s one of the reasons they watch Starz’s horror-comedy show. But according to star Bruce Campbell, the Evil Dead team have really outdone themselves with one particular demise which occurs in a season 2 episode also heavily featuring Ash’s famous car, the 1973 Delta 88.
“There’s an episode that’s basically around the Delta,” Campbell tells EW. “It’s a pretty interesting episode, with perhaps the worst onscreen death in the history of all visual arts. ‘Worst’ meaning ‘most outrageous.’ Like, ‘Am I really watching this happening? Am I really watching this unfold in front of me?'”
The exclusive image above, showing the car covered in blood, is from that very episode. See a trailer for the new season below.
Campbell also hinted that the upcoming season, which returns to Starz in October, will once again find Ash being tormented by his evil doppelgänger. “Well, he seems to pop up, that Evil Ash, he’s a tricky one,” says the actor. “Ash always has internal struggles, let’s just say that.”
Ash vs Evil Dead returns in October on Starz.
