    Enter an all-new Evil Dead experience, as Ash finds himself arrested, convicted of murder, and sentenced to Sunny Meadows, an institute for the criminally insane. Though better than the madness he escaped hidden within the woods, he quickly learns the evil has only become more malevolent. Deep in the basement of an insane asylum, the mad Dr. Vingo Reinhard combines technology with The Book of The Dead, AKA The Necronomicon to fulfill perverted experiments of his very own. Hell-bent on using science to harness the Necronomicon's powers, the malevolent doctor unleashes the book's all-powerful Evil on the world - creating a new breed of Deadites, monsters and experiments gone wrong, twisting reality into a hellish strudel and leaving mankind with that not-so-fresh apocalyptic feeling. It's just too bad for Vingo that the judge gave Ash a straightjacket instead of the needle...

    • The Ultimate Evil Dead Experience! Experience - some of the fiercest, action-packed, and punch-in-the-gut hilarious gameplay this side of biblical Armageddon

    • Meet Sam! - for this first time ever, Ash has been forced to take on a partner - Sam, a three-foot tall Deadite who's part empath, part wiseass and all corpse! And he's willing to use his flea-bitten carcass as anything, from a tiki torch to a bowling ball, to get his revenge. Ash would rather behead Sam then befriend him, but he's going to need all the help he can get against the army of monstrosities that lie in wait.

    • Dual Weapon Combos, Hordes of Baddies, and Non-Stop Action! - join Ash and Sam as they battle evil—and each other—killing anything dead that moves with everything from harpoon guns to flame throwers to the world famous chainsaw and shotgun combination special

    follow-up to Evil Dead 2.


    Evil Dead Regeneration follows Ash, the lone survivor of a camp who discovered the
    Necronomicon - the wholly evil book of the dead. Thought to have murdered his
    companions, Ash is arrested, convicted of the crime, and sentenced to Sunny Meadows,
    an institute for the criminally insane. But his stay is short-lived....

    Ash's peaceful stay is about to end, thanks to the perverted experiments of his very own
    psychiatrist Dr Reinhard. Hell-bent on using science to harness the Necronomicon's
    powers, the mad doctor unleashes the book's all-powerful evil on the world - releasing a
    new slew of Deadites, monsters and spirits, twisting reality into a hellish strudel and
    leaving mankind with that not-so-fresh apocalyptic feeling.

    • Take on the evil Deadites once more using your chainsaw hand, your trusty Smith &
      Wesson "Boomstick" and Ash's sharp wit


    • Features the voice of Bruce 'Ash' Campbell


    • Follows the events of Evil Dead 2 with a "What if Ash hadn't been sucked into the

Cranky Pants website:
    A doctor’s unorthodox experiments unleash an ancient and oh-so familiar Evil that quickly corrupts everything in sight, and it’s up to Ash to rescue the world, again. It will take every ounce of attitude, firepower, and luck for our reluctant hero to defeat the Evil, but this time he’s got help. Ash begrudgingly joins forces with Sam, a short, untrustworthy, not-quite Deadite in a quest to release the girl, conquer the Evil, and save civilization...maybe.

Press Release (Sept. 14, 2005):

    THQ Announces Launch of Evil Dead Regeneration for Xbox and PS2

    Calabasas Hills, CA - September 13, 2005 - THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) today announced the launch of Evil Dead Regeneration for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, with the Windows PC version expected to ship September 20th. Taking off from where the seminal horror classic Evil Dead 2 movie ended, Evil Dead Regeneration explores a "what if..." continuation of the evils connected to the legendary Necronomicon. Voiced by Bruce Campbell, players will control Ash, the reluctant hero of the series. Ash is joined by a deadite dwarf sidekick --voiced by Ted Raimi -- who's literally half the hero Ash is. Developed by THQ studio Cranky Pants Games, Evil Dead Regeneration is available now for the suggested retail price of $19.99.

    "This is not a sequel to any previous Evil Dead game, but an all-new Evil Dead adventure. Fans of Evil Dead have been waiting for an experience that injects a natural evolution which truly captures the mood and atmosphere of the world created," said David Bollesen, general manager, Cranky Pants Games. "We believe Evil Dead Regeneration provides the hysterical humor and frantic horror sewn into each film. The chemistry created between Bruce Campbell as Ash and Ted Raimi as his sidekick really delivers on the spirit of the films. Punting a half-dead sidekick to do your dirty work is case-in-point."

    Evil Dead Regeneration follows Ash, the lone survivor of a camp discovering the Necronomicon -- the wholly evil book of the dead. Thought to have murdered his companions, Ash is arrested, convicted of the crime, and sentenced to Sunny Meadows, an institute for the criminally insane, but not for long. Ash's peaceful stay is about to end -- thanks to the perverted experiments of his very own psychiatrist. Hell-bent on using science to harness the Necronomicon's powers, the mad doctor unleashes the book's all-powerful Evil on the world -- releasing a new slew of Deadites, monsters and spirits, twisting reality into a hellish strudel and leaving mankind with that not-so-fresh, apocalyptic feeling.

    The praise and anticipation among gaming press point to Evil Dead Regeneration being the best game within the franchise.

    "Cranky Pants delivers action and adventure surprises in succession with a doggedly imaginative barrage of enemies, environmental puzzles, and play mechanics." 8.0 out of 10
    -Play Magazine

    "For fans drooling at the opportunity to control Ash's deadly chainsaw/shotgun combo and blast Deadites to giblets, Evil Dead Regeneration looks like it could provide a satisfying third-person action experience.
    -IGN

    "The visuals are the best to be seen in an Evil Dead game to date. Cranky Pants' experience with consoles shows through thanks to a solid engine that's big on detail and performance."
