Bruce Campbell Says “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” Regarding ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’ Season 2



Bruce Campbell Says “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” Regarding 'Ash Vs. Evil Dead' Season 2

While fans eagerly wait for “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” season 2 to hit our screens, we’ve gone and found out some very interesting things that we can all expect to see for its TV return. For the UK release of “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” on DVD, Bruce Campbell took some time out to chat with SciFiNow regarding season 2. Take a look below at some of the highlights.

Did you warn Ray and Dana about the amount of gore they’d be covered in?

“Well, I needed to remind myself, it wasn’t even about them! When it first got on me, I was like “Holy shit, I forgot about this!” How horrifying it is and how miserable it is and how sticky and cold and all the above. It smells weird, and it dyes your skin and there’s almost nothing good about it.

So yeah, we warned ‘em, but then at the same time, you catch yourself complaining and you go wait a second, you told those actors not to complain! It was a harsh reminder for all of us that these movies were never easy, the TV show is not going to be easy. In Season 2…poor Ray, the physical crap that he had to go through, my hat’s off to him. He beat me in Season 2.”

Is there a level of comfort now going into a second season?

“Well, you know you got the job, but there’s also this thing called expectations now. The first season, people were more like, “Meh, let’s see what’s going to happen.” If you liked Season One, then you go, “Alright, try and beat that!” So we hope to not get caught in a silly competition with the audience, you know, that’s not what this is about.

It’s about Ash going on a crazy ass journey and we think we’ve expanded that. You have to grow your story, grow your cast. We’ve got Lee Majors coming in to play my dad, Ted Raimi’s back to play my boyhood friend, it’s a great supporting cast this year. I want people to see it.”

Was it at all odd driving the Oldsmobile again, and to go back onto that cabin set?

“The cabin and the car were weird. The car is original, it’s Sam Raimi’s personal family car. I used to drive around in it in high school. There’s a certain sound when you open the door, it would make this very pathetic little noise, and the art department had Sam and I come down, because they shipped it out in a container to New Zealand which is not an easy feat. We went down to look at all the stuff they put on the dashboard and I opened the door and there was that sound and I looked at Sam, like, “This is ridiculous, man!” The same sound from high school. That was crazy.

The re-do of the cabin they did, both outside and inside, was just impressive as hell. Rob Tapert and I were the only guys on set who would have known the original perspective of what you would have seen down this hallway, or through that window. And these guys, I don’t know how they did it but it was like a virtual reality game.

Everywhere I looked it was the right door leaf, the laughing lamp from Evil Dead 2, the deer’s head on the wall, the stone head in the fireplace. It was just insane. I’m not a method actor but I didn’t have to do much acting to walk around looking creeped out!”
