Big Winter Movies (Part 1.5).

And finally, at fucking last, two months and two weeks later it's....

Ash vs Evil Dead (2015)

First, the long-ass journey here.

And now, the (spoiler filled) episode reviews from the comments section of "Big Winter Movies (Part 1)".
  1. El Jefe.
  2. Bait. (addendum)
  3. Books from beyond.
  4. Brujo.
  5. The host. (addendum)
  6. The killer of killers. (addendum 1, 2, 3, 4)
  7. Fire in the hole.
  8. Ashes To Ashes.
  9. Bound In Flesh.
  10. The Dark One.(addendum)

All right, now for the overall show rundown as a 5 hour movie.
  • Loved it.
  • Some weaker episodes than others, but watched end to end in binge mode, it's all good.
  • I repeat what I said after Christmas about Hannibal. It's an embarrassment of riches. Now we have 13 hours of Evil Dead instead of 8. With another 5 coming along to make it 18. 
  • Can't wait for the DVDs.
  • I think I may like this even better than Evil Dead 2. Hard telling. I need more time to process it.
  • Just like "The Force Awakens", you'll love the new characters as well as the old. 
  • Ash still rules.
  • Faithful to the rules of the mythology. They expand on what's established in the canon with no bullshit pulled out of thin air. It all fits. 
  • Can't wait for season 2. And 3, and 4, and 5, and...for as long as they want to go. 
  • You may or may not not like the ending of this season, works with Ash's character when you think about it. Plus, again, we're getting season 2.

Aaaand, I guess that's it.

Get ahold of it however you have to, and check it out.
See you next year for next season.

Now, to at long last retro-link this to last Halloween's "80's slashers".

Next up, hopefully a third time for "The Force Awakens".
