Cast members from the Starz horror comedy “Ash vs. Evil Dead” are hosting a Season 2 advanced screening and panel discussion tonight on MSU’s campus. Actors Ray Santiago, Ted Raimi and Dana DeLorenzo and talk about why Michigan plays such an important role in the new season.

If you like horror films, you definitely know all about the classic “Evil Dead" trilogy starring Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams. And if you’re a big fan of those films, then you were pretty excited when almost 25 years later, the story picked back up again with the Starz show "Ash vs. Evil Dead."

Season 2 of the show premieres this weekend, and Michigan plays an interesting role in the story, probably because the creator of the films, Sam Raimi, attended MSU, and so did his brothers Ted, who stars in season 2, and Ivan, who is executive producer.

Current State talks with cast members Ted Raimi, Dana DeLorenzo, and Ray Santiago ahead of a panel discussion and free screening tonight at MSU's Wells Hall.
