Video: As soon as we heard about IFC's horror comedy Stan Against Evil, it reminded us a lot of Ash vs Evil Dead. And now that the first trailer has dropped, we see the similarities even more. Still, Stan — about a retired sheriff (John C. McGinley) who's reluctantly pressed into service as a demon fighter — looks like it will be fun anyway. So ... is that the Necronomicon or what?

The first episode of Stan Against Evil previews in the US on October 31 on IFC; the show's official premiere, which will include the first two episodes, will air on November 2. An Australian broadcaster has not been announced.
