With the strong start of Ash vs Evil Dead, attention now turns to the second episode to see if it delivers. With most of the action taking place in a morgue, Bruce Campbell is given the chance to show he still has it when it comes to slapstick comedy.
Ruby is back (Lucy Lawless) and has asked Ash (Bruce Campbell) for help. In the search for the Necronomicon he finds himself alone in the morgue looking for the book, while his father Brock (Lee Majors) has a date night at home.
In my review of the season opener I did hint at the morgue scene, and it is one that you do have to have a strong stomach for. The main comedy piece is something that you can see coming, and when you see it, it is as disgusting as you expect. The payoff after this scene is fitting as typically for Ash, »

“Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It’s fun to be a vampire.” The CW is looking to tap into the fun and frightening concoction of Joel Schumacher’s The Lost Boys, as they are developing a TV series based on the beloved film.
Deadline broke the news about The Lost Boys TV series, which is being developed and written by Rob Thomas (iZombie, Veronica Mars) at The CW in conjunction with Gulfstream TV and Warner Bros Television.
According to Deadline, the series is being planned by Thomas as a massive seven-season story that would follow an immortal group of vampires (the Lost Boys) as they live through the triumphs and tribulations of each decade. Each season would be set in a new decade, with the debut season expected to take place in San Francisco circa 1967.
It’s unknown at this time whether or not »

Yet another remake is making its way to television.
The CW has put a re-imagining of the 1987 film “The Lost Boys” into development, Variety has confirmed.
The potential series hails from “Veronica Mars” and “iZombie” creator Rob Thomas, furthering his relationship with the CW, as his DC Comics zombie rom-com is heading into its third season at the network.
Based on the movie, CW’s “Lost Boys” will be an anthology of sorts, looking at vampires through a new lens, asking the question: what does it really mean to be immortal? The series will tell a story spanning 70 years, each decade a new season — meaning the plan is for the show to go on for seven years. Each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change — only the vampires, our Lost Boys, remain the same. The first season will be set in San Francisco during 1967 — the Summer of Love.

Truth, justice and the American way prevail! It seems we're getting a true Lost Boys 2, only in the form of a comic. 30 years removed from the release of the original cult classic, this is perhaps the only way to go, especially since one of the main stars has long since drifted into the chilly night air of Santa Carla. The Lost Boys sequel comic will pick up where we last left Sam, Mike, his mother and their vampire fighting Grandpa.
There's no denying that The Lost Boys is an 80s cult classic that has a legion of fans. But the franchise hasn't exactly faired well over the past few decades. The movie was supposed to get a true sequel heading into the 90s, which never happened. It would have revolved around an all-girl vampire coven, and may have just been too far ahead of its time. It wasn't until 2008 that »
“The Lost Boys” never grow old and never die, which means it’s never too late for a sequel to the cult classic film. Variety can exclusively reveal that the beloved ’80s horror-comedy will receive a sequel comic book in the form of a new miniseries from Vertigo, which will hit shelves on October 12.
Featuring the surviving characters from the film, “The Lost Boys” comic is being crafted by horror veterans, writer Tim Seeley (an alum of DC’s “Grayson” and “Nightwing,” and creator of “Hack/Slash”) and artists Scott Godlewski (“The Dark & Bloody,” “Copperhead”) and Patricia Mulvihill (“The Dark & Bloody,” “Hellblazer”), with covers by Tony Harris. The team promises to deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987.
In the new miniseries, Santa Carla, California, is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after »
