Ash Vs Evil Dead Cast Explains How to Kill a Deadite

Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead” features some pretty glorious special effects, with gruesome Deadite and demon kills filling every episode. All of that spouting blood doesn’t come easy, as evidenced by a new behind-the-scenes video that shows everything that goes into creating and killing a Deadite.

According to the cast, there are various ways to dispose of the evil creatures: shooting, stabbing or, of course, chainsawing. Star Bruce Campbell (Ash) says that an ax will also work, but it’s a lot of effort: “It’s for a younger actor.”

The series’ special effects team says the demon spawn, introduced late in the first season, are the most labor-intensive creatures to create. The actors playing them have to get in full-body make-up to make them as creepy and realistic as possible.

Of course, in fighting these demons, the show’s actors end up getting a little bloody themselves, and the veteran special effects team has a lot of ways to get the actors covered in goo. Blood-delivering devices range from a brush to a manual crank to a cannon.

“I swear one of the things they use is a snow blower,” said Dana DeLorenzo, who plays Kelly.

However, the cast and crew say they’re willing to put in the work required to make the grisly series a reality.

“That’s the beauty of ‘The Evil Dead,'” Campbell said. “Carnage, mayhem and a couple of one-liners.”

The second season of “Ash vs. Evil Dead” premieres Sunday on Starz.
