With the politic season in full swing, Ash is throwing his chainsaw in the ring through STARZ's Ash4President campaign. The grassroots movement just launched a new website and released two videos featuring Bruce Campbell's Ash urging folks to stay groovy by voting for their favorite Deadite slayer this November.
Press Release: Beverly Hills, Calif. – August 25, 2016 – Today, answering the call of the people, STARZ is reigniting the Ash4President campaign with a new website and killer campaign videos to rally the troops and rock the vote.
Ash is the only man who can cross party lines, because no one likes a party more than Ash Williams. Under the promise of making America groovy again, fans can sign up to receive custom campaign swag, download political posters, and share Ash’s policies across social media. Through www.Ash4President.com and the @Ash4President Twitter handle STARZ will be releasing a series of exclusive political clips featuring Ash Williams giving his take on hot button issues to get loyal fans (err, citizens) to the polls. Ash is still waiting for the invite to the presidential debates but just in case it got lost in the mail he’ll be live tweeting the debates from the @Ash4President handle to make sure his voice is heard. Hey America, you could do worse.
“Ash vs Evil Dead,” is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film The Evil Dead. The series is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers, and Craig DiGregorio who serves as executive producer and showrunner.
