Ready to scream so hard you’ll laugh yourself silly? Comedian, writer-producer (The Simpsons) and monster aficionado Dana Gould has conjured a new horror-comedy in the “spirit” of Ghostbusters and Shaun of the Dead. And it’s coming just in time for Halloween.
Set in a small New England town, Stan Against Evil stars Scrubs alum John C. McGinley as a disgruntled former sheriff and Janet Varney (You’re the Worst, The Legend of Korra) as his replacement reluctantly joining forces to battle a legion of demons summoned atop the site of a 17th century witch burning. Throughout the season, the mismatched duo discover that something isn’t quite right with their seemingly bucolic town.
Check out a clip below to get a taste of the macabre humor in store this season.
The debut eight episode season premieres with two back-to-back episodes Wednesday, November 2nd at 10P and 10:30P, and will continue to run Wednesdays at 10P throughout the fall. (New episodes will be available the day after airing on IFC.com and the IFC app.) And because we know you love a good scare on All Hallow’s Eve, we’re giving you a special sneak-peek of the season premiere on Halloween night, October 31st at 10P.
