Though the idea of Thanksgiving has unfortunately morphed a bit in recent years, the commercialization of the holiday turning it from a day to relax and enjoy the company of your family into a day to skip out on your loved ones and stand in line for 5 hours in an attempt to get a Blu-ray player for $20, there’s one important aspect of Thanksgiving that should not be lost amidst the consumption of turkey and trampling of shoppers; being thankful.
No matter what it is you’re thankful for, Thanksgiving is a day to be thankful for something that has happened in the past year, whether it’s finding the love of your life or scoring yourself that aforementioned $20 Blu-ray player – here on FEARnet, we don’t judge. We’re just happy that you’re happy.
As 2013 rapidly comes to a close, I want to take a moment to shine »

Latin American filmmakers are an emerging global force, riding on a wave of genre films. So much so that Latin America’s biggest movie market, Ventana Sur, which means Southern Window, has launched Blood Window, a slice of the mart dedicated to horror.
More widely available digital distribution systems, whether set-top boxes or game consoles or even mobile phones streaming content, have created a demand for youth-skewing genre pics in Europe, Asia and especially the United States.
“Ironically, it’s easier to find interest abroad when producing genre films than here in Argentina,” says scribe-helmer Ramiro Garcia Bogliano.
Javier Fernandez at Buenos Aires’ Incaa, which co-organizes Ventana Sur with the Cannes Festival’s Film Market, likens the rise in Latin American genre to what happened in South Korea a little more than a decade ago, and more recently Spain.
Some highlights of the surge:

The Evil Dead has been the talk of the horror community over the course of the past couple weeks, a tumultuous period of time full of ups and downs, excitement and disappointment.
First we found out that Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi would be returning for Army of Darkness 2, and then Campbell himself debunked the rumor he started – chalking it up to fanboy fantasy. Then we learned that Fede Alvarez wouldn’t be directing the sequel to this year’s remake, followed by the news that he in fact would be returning to the cabin in the woods.
Honestly, I don’t even know what to think anymore. About any of it. I’ve kind of had enough of the rumors and reports about the franchise, and I think we all need a break. So let’s all take one together, while soaking in the glorious sights of the top »

Right, someone needs to make up their minds about whether this film is happening or not.
Despite telling people that Army of Darkness 2 was going ahead (not to mention Fede Alverez also saying it was happening), Ash Williams himself Bruce Campbell has dispelled the rumours by saying that there is no truth behind the claims and that the movie is "way not confirmed".
"It's all Internet b.s. - there's no reality whatsoever" the b-movie legend told Erin Darling at Comikaze. "These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi's mouth, next thing you know, we're making a sequel. Unless it's announced from Renaissance Pictures, it's not real"
He then goes on to talk about how the Internet "prays" to rumours. "I feel bad for people" Campbell said. "The Internet prays to mis-information. It's unbelievable how much mis-information there is."
Yeah, mis-information you reported Bruce.

Last month, Bruce Campbell, who portrayed the iconic Ash in The Evil Dead and its sequels Evil Dead 2 and Army Of Darkness, appeared to tease a follow-up to the third film at the Nashville Wizard World convention.
Rumours of a new film have been circulating for a while now. Back in March, Rob Tapert, producer of the Evil Dead films and long-time colleague of their director Sam Raimi, said that Raimi and his brother Ivan would be writing a direct sequel to the original Army Of Darkness, a time-travel action-fantasy-comedy set in the Middle Ages that has become a cult favourite for its ridiculousness and Campbell’s one-liners. Of the next film in the Evil Dead franchise, he said:

Last month Bruce Campbell made some comments at the Wizard World Comic-Con that made it sound like he was onboard for a sequel to Army Of Darkness. Many thought he was being sarcastic, but Fede Alvarez tweeted a week later that Sam Raimi will be directing the sequel, so it seemed pretty legit. Unfortunately, Bruce Campbell wasn't actually confirming another Ash adventure with his comments, and when the actor was asked about a sequel to Army Of Darkness by Shock Till You Drop, he »

Having previously endorsed the prospect of a sequel to Army Of Darkness, Bruce Campbell has been speaking about the long-awaited project again, this time dismissing the story as “internet Bs”. There has been a lot of buzz around Army Of Darkness 2 of late, with Fede Alvarez and Sam Raimi himself both suggesting that a sequel was in the pipeline. However, according to Campbell, this is all so much hot air… “It’s not news,” says Campbell. “Let me dispel that right now. It’s all internet B.S. There’s no reality whatsoever. These random...

Last week, Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez revealed on Twitter that a sequel to cult classic Army of Darkness was on its way and would have Sam Raimi attached to direct. A week before that, Bruce Campbell also told fans at the Nashville Comic-Con that he was slated to return to the big screen with Army of Darkness 2. However, the cult icon is now detracting his claims that a sequel to the horror comedy is coming to theatres, explaining that all of the talk about the movie is “Internet B.S.”
In an interview with Popfix, Bruce Campbell said that “there’s no reality whatsoever” behind the rumours for Army of Darkness 2. “These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi’s mouth, next thing you know, we’re making a sequel,” he continues. “We do appreciate people’s enthusiasm for another Army of Darkness, but they should »

We've run the gamut of Evil Dead news lately. Recently, there were rumblings that director Fede Alvarez and writer Rodo Sayagues had fallen away from the remake sequel (until the director revealed that wasn't true), and Alvarez also revealed that Sam Raimi was lined up to direct Evil Dead 4, or what is now being called Army of Darkness 2. But all of this buzz started after Bruce Campbell talked about the potential sequel, joking about playing a geriatric Ash in the sequel. Now Campbell is denouncing all of the talk about Army of Darkness 2 in an interview with PopFix (via Shock Til You Drop) saying, "It's all Internet B.S." Campbell seemed almost annoyed with the talk of the sequel saying: "It's all Internet b.s. - there's no reality whatsoever. These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi's mouth, next thing you know, we're making a sequel. »

There's been quotes from various conventions over the year, with the likes of producer Rob Tapert, remake helmer Fede Alvarez, and star Bruce Campbell all directly hinting that an "Army of Darkness 2" is in the works.
Today, all that talk has been emphatically dismissed by Campbell who tells Erin Darling:
"It's all Internet B.S. - there's no reality whatsoever. These random comments slip out of either my mouth or Sam Raimi's mouth, next thing you know, we're making a sequel.
So, unless you have an announcement from Renaisssance Pictures - it's not real. Or unless you have a start date, or a release date.
We do appreciate people's enthusiasm for another 'Army of Darkness,' but they should just wait until it's real."

This past weekend, Erin Darling interviewed Bruce Campbell at Comikaze in Los Angeles. When Erin inquired about the new Army of Darkness 2 rumors, Campbell immediately douses them with cold water. "It's all Internet b.s. - there's no reality whatsoever. These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi's mouth, next thing you know, we're making a sequel." As a reminder, Campbell and the rest of the Evil Dead gang have been hinting at a cross-over film between Ash and Mia while they were all promoting Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead remake. A couple weeks ago at Wizard World Nashville, a fan in attendance asked Campbell if he would reprise his role as Ash for Army of Darkness 2 and he replied, "Alright sir, the answer is yes." About a week after that, Fede was asked on Twitter if he would direct Army of Darkness 2, and he said no, »
It began with Rob Tapert. The producer of the Evil Dead films hinted at an Army of Darkness 2 back in March when he was asked about the prospect of another entry in the Sam Raimi-directed series. He stated the film - if there ever was another one - would not be Evil Dead 4, but Army of Darkness 2. This set off a firestorm of rumors and hopeful rumblings that we might see Bruce Campbell play Ash one more time.
But now, in spite of Campbell being quoted at a convention confirming AoD2 is in the works, now says it's all bullshit.
"It's all Internet b.s. - there's no reality whatsoever. These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi's mouth, next thing you know, we're making a sequel, »
Welcome to The Last Horror Blog, a biweekly column on all things horror. Fede Alvarez leaves Evil Dead 2? -- Back in March, everything was wine and roses surrounding Fede Alvarez's rebooting of The Evil Dead. Sam Raimi loved it, fans turned out in droves, and talk was that a sequel was already in development. So, that makes yesterday's revelation that Alvarez and writing partner Rodo Sayagues are no longer involved in the sequel (and haven't been for months) pretty shocking. Sayagues offered the following info about the duo's departure: "Look, I am sorry to tell you this but that movie won’t happen. Evil Dead 2 is not going to happen, at least not with us involved. We left that project many months ago because we preferred to put our...

It’s fair to say that the Evil Dead remake received a mixed response, but even with this being the case it was deemed profitable enough shortly after its release for the studio to consider a sequel.
However, the state of the sequel was thrown into doubt following some comments made by co-writer Rodo Sayagues. Speaking to Shock Till You Drop, he said that "I am sorry to tell you this but that movie won’t happen. Evil Dead 2 is not going to happen, at least not with us involved". He added that "we left that project many months ago because we preferred to put our energies on other things. I don’t know if the producers still have intentions of making it. But »
Alvarez addressed the issue on Twitter, telling tell his fans not to believe everything they read on the Internet. He also talked to Bloody-Disguisting saying that, basically, "this was a case of things getting lost in translation."
He went on to explain that what Sayagues apparently meant was that "Army of Darkness 2 is taking a priority and that Evil Dead 2 is very much in development with Sayagues and Alvares still attached."
I've got to say that is a huge mistranslation, but it's good to know that the movie is still in development and that we'll see Army of Darkness 2 before we see the Evil Dead sequel!

Yesterday the decidedly un-groovy news came out that Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez and co-writer Rodo Sayagues were no longer attached to doing a sequel. But, as with so many stories of people departing a showbiz project, it turns out this one may have been a bit misconstrued. Alvarez took to Twitter last night to walk back Sayagues' statements, commenting to Bloody Disgusting that “stuff got lost in translation” with his co-writer. He explained that they’re “not actually making Evil Dead 2 right now because the priority is Sam [Raimi]’s Army Of Darkness 2. But the plan »
Bloody Disgusting caught up with Alvarez, who clarified things. “Stuff got lost in translation,” he says of the Gorosito interview with Sayagues that spawned all this. “Rodo meant we’re not actually making Evil Dead 2 right now because the priority is Sam’s Army of Darkness 2. But the plan of making a sequel to our Evil Dead is very much alive.”
There. Crisis averted. Now where's all that Halloween candy? We've got some celebrating to do!

Yesterday, Evil Dead screenwriter Rodo Sayagues Mendez revealed in an interview that he and director Fede Alvarez have parted ways with Evil Dead 2. However, Fede Alvarez shot down the report on his Twitter page.
"@MikeMcCabeSad Apparently @fedalvar won't be working on Evil Dead 2, very ungroovy" Don't believe everything you read online...
— Fede Alvarez (@fedalvar) October 31, 2013
The director elaborated that the writer's comments were "lost in translation," and added that the sequel is still alive, although another sequel, Army of Darkness 2, has become a bigger priority.
*Updated with a quote from Fede Alvarez* With a production budget of $15 million, Evil Dead earned $97 million worldwide and it seemed likely a sequel would move forward. Director Fede Alvarez previously discussed his interest in returning for a sequel, but a new report suggests that it’s unlikely to happen. During an interview with Gorosito.TV, Evil Dead co-writer Rodo Sayagues revealed that they left the project months ago:
“Look, I am sorry to tell you this but that movie won’t happen. Evil Dead 2 is not going to happen, at least not with us involved. We left that project many months ago because we preferred to put our energies on other things. I don’t know if the producers still have intentions of making it. But what I can tell you is that we are not part of that project.”
He didn’t provide a reason, but previous comments »

Yesterday, we heard news that “Evil Dead” remake co-writer and Fede Alvarez’s Bff Rodo Sayagues was telling a foreign news outlet that he and Alverez were off the “Evil Dead 2″ movie, and had been “for months”. As it turns out, he was either talking out of his butt, or something got lost in translation. Today, Alvarez has taken to twitter to tell people “don’t believe everything you read online”. He then clears things up further to Bloody-Disgusting: Rodo meant we’re not actually making ‘Evil Dead 2′ right now because the priority is Sam’s ‘Army of Darkness 2.’ But the plan of making a sequel to our ‘Evil Dead’ is very much alive. Ah, see, he doesn’t actually say He will be making “Evil Dead 2″, he just says the “plan of making a sequel to Our ‘Evil Dead’” is still alive. I think everyone knew that. The film turned a very nice profit, »
