One of the big highlights of the second season of Starz’ “Ash vs. Evil Dead” was the return of the evil Henrietta, who Ash reunited with down in the fruit cellar of the iconic cabin. Ted Raimi, brother of Sam Raimi, reprised the role of Henrietta 30 years after Evil Dead 2, which was a massive treat for longtime fans.
“Ash vs. Evil Dead” Season 2 is headed to DVD & Blu-ray on August 22, and today we’ve been provided with an exclusive clip that digs into the return of Henrietta!
“It was like some kind of an acid trip flashback,” Ted Raimi explained to us in a chat last December. “The set was exactly the same and Bruce and I were dressed the same – gave me chills. At one point during shooting in the cabin for episodes 209 and 210, Bruce turned to me and said: ‘Well Ted, we’ve come a long way in 30 years!‘”
“Season 2 roars back into action with Ash leaving his beloved Jacksonville and returning to his home town of Elk Grove. There, he confronts Ruby, only to find that she too is now a victim of evil and in need of Ash’s help. The former enemies have to form an uneasy alliance to give them a chance of success as Elk Grove soon becomes the nucleus of evil.”
