The Evil Dead series, both in the cinematic and television forms, has a marvelously delirious history. An original film financed on a shoestring budget that plays its horror-centric tone mostly straight but with a few chuckle inducing moments, a sequel that is in essence a remake of the original and was originally supposed to follow the plot of the third film, said third film that goes off in a completely different direction, and now a TV series, 22 years later, that makes no reference to the third installment for legal reasons, therefore technically continuing the story of the first film but unquestionably borrowing the slapstick, overly comedic identity of the third movie. Few popular franchises can claim to having a developmental history has complicated and hard fought as Evil Dead, although one would struggle to consider that a virtue. »

Demonic forces time warp him – and his '73 Oldsmobile – into England's Dark Ages, where he romances a beauty (Embeth Davidtz, The Amazing Spider-Man) and faces legions of the undead.

New Medieval Times: The Making Of "Army Of Darkness »

The Evil Dead series is one that I hold very close to my heart (and my knuckles, which are tattooed with just that: Evil Dead). My adoration towards Sam Raimi’s 1981 directorial debut and the series that followed is unparalleled by most series, and I don’t know many horror fans who aren’t absolutely drawn to Bruce Campbell’s Ash character. With each film, the tone slowly changed from a straight up terrifying mood with the first film, to a “splat-stick” somewhat Three Stooges horror approach in Evil Dead 2, to full on action adventure horror with 1992’s third entry into the franchise, Army Of Darkness. A definite fan favorite, Army Of Darkness saw Campbell’s Ash character transported to the Medieval era and fully made the character a legendary one.
By now, we’ve seen countless releases of the film, and though some have said that there isn »

Marilyn Monroe was a study in contradictions. She was the giddy, cooing blonde who became one of America’s haughtiest sex symbols, as well as a woman haunted by a thorny relationship with her mentally ill mom and the pressures of fame. The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, a two-night mini-series on Lifetime, tries to peer into the woman behind the legend, opening up the scars that most viewers couldn’t see under the flash and sizzle of the big screen. However, the mini-series is too disjointed and melodramatic to completely work as a biopic. Nevertheless, Kelli Garner is masterful as Monroe, digging into the pain and vulnerability of a cultural icon without ever succumbing to mere impersonation. It’s a terrific performance, the magnetic core of an otherwise muddled misfire.

Amy Adams drop dead gorgeous on Oscars' Red Carpet Amy Adams at the 83rd Academy Awards Looking drop dead gorgeous, Amy Adams is pictured above donning a scintillating blue dress while arriving at the 2011 Oscar ceremony, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in the fast-thumping heart of Hollywood. Adams was – for the third time in six years (more info below) – a Best Supporting Actress nominee. This time around, she was shortlisted for her performance in David O. Russell's The Fighter, a generally well-regarded and surprisingly successful (in the U.S.) boxing drama that earned fellow supporting actress Melissa Leo the evening's Oscar. Another The Fighter actor, Christian Bale (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), took home the Best Supporting Actor Oscar statuette. In fact, the film's only major cast member left without an Oscar nomination in the acting categories was lead Mark Wahlberg (pictured with wife) – though he did »
