Stan Against Evil (IFC) – Starts 31st October – Renewed
A straight up comedy horror take on Ash vs. Evil Dead, set in the small town of Willard’s Mill that during the Witch Hunter trials made Salem seem like a minor event. During that time a curse was placed on the towns sheriff meaning that they will die in office.
After his wifes death, the curmudgeonly sheriff Stan assaults the priest at the funeral leading to him losing his job, where after he finds that his wife spend her evening taking out the demons trying to kill him. As he discovers this his replacement finds herself beset with supernatural attacks on her life and manages to get him to reluctantly agree to help.
While it is reminiscent of Ash vs Evil Dead, it’s enjoyable silliness.
