The Internet loves a lot of things, but it especially loves anything Marvel, anything with zombies, anything featuring Evil Dead’s Ash, and a good mash-up. So today we bring you this fan film featuring all four of those elements. It’s like a veritable nerdgasm…
Brian Rosenthal has crafted what might be the ultimate fan film with his bite-sized epic Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness – a short wherein Ash takes on the zombie forms of some of Marvel’s biggest heroes. Holy crossover!
Things open up with Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy trying to survive the zombie apocalypse, but next thing you know zombie Wolverine is wreaking havoc and it’s up to Deadite slayer extraordinaire Ash to save the day… with a little help from the Marvel universe.
The eight-minute mini movie is actually well made. It’s a bit jarring to see someone other than Bruce Campbell as Ash, but the actor they cast does a pretty good job at mimicking the star’s mannerisms. The video is filled with all kinds of in-jokes for Army of Darkness fans and should please those fans as well as the comic geeks who made the Marvel Zombie books (including this crossover) such a huge success.
Enough prattling from me, though – watch the film below and revel in the awesomeness for yourself. Here’s to hoping that Rosenthal and his team are already planning a sequel. If you're looking for more of this action, grab the officially sanctioned Marvel Comics series and dig in.
