Sam Raimi Writing ‘Evil Dead’ TV Series That Will Include Bruce Campbell

25 July 2014 10:36 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sam Raimi announced at San Diego Comic-Con that he is writing, along with his brother Ivan, a television show based on the “Evil Dead” series of movies. Even better, it purportedly involves Bruce Campbell, though it's unclear if he'll appear on-screen or behind-the-scenes. Also read: ‘Spider-Man’ Director Sam Raimi to Produce ‘The Last of Us’ Movie for Screen Gems The original film trilogy (“The Evil Dead,” “Evil Dead II,” and “Army of Darkness”) ran from 1981 to 1992 and introduced the world to Campbell as Ash Williams. Cambell, most recently seen on “Burn Notice,” may be too old to play Ash these. »

Impressions of Evil Dead: The Musical

16 July 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Doris the Deadite greets us atop the stairs leading to Planet Hollywood’s V3 Theater in Las Vegas. Wearing a blood-splotched white dress with a matching white hat nestled on her curly blonde hair, Doris smiles through the peeling gray skin of her face. Teeth bared, eyes darting from sunken sockets, Doris cackles and beckons us closer for a photo. Welcome to the immersive atmosphere of Evil Dead The Musical Ultimate 4D Experience.

A tasty slice of horror heaven from director/producer Sirc Michaels that’s based on Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy, as well as the book and lyrics of George Reinblatt, this Vegas production is packed with nods to its beloved source material, but also boasts buckets of blood-drenched originality.

After our photo is snapped with Doris, we hang out in the bar area for a bit before another Deadite calls us into the theater. As we walk down a short hallway, »

Wild Evil Dead II Poster Art by Jeremy Wheeler

27 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here's a crazy radical piece of poster art for Sam Raimi's classic horror film Evil Dead II. It was created by Jeremy Wheeler and comes in a regular metallic edition of 50 and a bloody variant edition of 25, which is the one I prefer. I'm all about the blood. The posters are available for sale today from Fright Fest Originals. If you want to purchase one, click here.

#SDCC14: Sideshow Announces Evil Dead II and More Friday the 13th

23 June 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The good folks behind some of the coolest yet most painfully priced collectibles in the world, Sideshow Collectibles, have announced that they have scored the license for Evil Dead II and will be releasing more Friday the 13th goodies.

There was no press release and no additional information available at press time. All we have to go on are the following two images.

Now let us be clear; even though Comic-Con isn't mentioned anywhere on the images, given the timing of the announcement and the time of year, we'd be shocked if the company didn't have prototypes ready for San Diego's big dance.

Check out the images below, and look for more soon!

Bon Appetit: ‘Ravenous’ and the Beast Inside

14 June 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ravenous

Written by Ted Griffin

Directed by Antonia Bird

USA, 1999

Ravenous is a film that is deceitful above all things. Almost from the outset, and certainly from the trailers, it portrays itself as a horror comedy in the vein of perhaps Evil Dead II or Cabin Fever. However, as the film comes together, the viewer quickly begins to see it for the maddening Frankenstein’s monster it truly is.

Ravenous tells the story of two outcasted men. The first is a disgraced former soldier, Calhoun, struggling with his “heroic” past, while the second, Ives,  is the sole survivor of a wilderness trek. Both mens journeys ended bad and bloody, and because of this, there is a kinship among them. They seem to know and understand one another.

Oh, and one other thing, they’re both cannibals.

And so, in the quiet California snow of the 1800s, we find these two »

My 10 Favorite 1990s Action Films

16 May 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I've recently been revisiting a lot of my favorite action movies that I watched as a teenager in the '90s. They seriously just don't make action films like that anymore. Filmmakers were still using lots of real explosives and blood squibs in these movies. Most of the films these days create those things digitally. Action films in the '90s were a sweet spot between the '80s and the '00s where the way action movies were being made really started to change with the advancement of technology. On top of that, the stories that they told were fun and completely over-the-top.

So here's a top ten list of my favorite action films from the '90s. Obviously these movies are all insanely action-packed. This is an action movie list, after all, so I'll talk about some of the other reasons I enjoyed these films so much.

Website Goes Behind the Scenes of The Walking Dead Chop Shop

8 April 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To survive in the world of The Walking Dead, you have to be smart, skilled, and swift. And as Hyundai’s The Walking Dead Chop Shop app shows, it doesn’t hurt to have a sweet and deadly set of wheels to drive around and through herds of walkers. Derek Arzoo, the Associate Creative Director for Hyundai’s The Walking Dead Chop Shop, launched a website that features intriguing looks at what went into making the popular app and its related materials.

For those who aren’t familiar with it, Hyundai’s The Walking Dead Chop Shop is a free app in which users build the ultimate survival machine out of three Hyundai vehicles and over 900 parts. At your disposal are machine guns, blades, barbed wire, and much more: think the kinds of vehicles that prowled the landscapes of The Road Warrior and Doomsday. The challenge is to create a »

​A pair of one-sheets to share with you before we close out the week. The first is a piece of art from the famous poster artist Graham Humphreys (who has done Evil Dead II for the UK and various other titles). He applied his talents to Soulmate, a gothic thriller that is on the way from director Axelle Carolyn. Anna Walton (Hellboy II) stars as a young woman who, following a suicide attempt, retreats to a cottage haunted by its previous owner.

10 Reasons to Never Mess with Liam Neeson

25 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

As we prepare for Liam Neeson's latest action film Non-Stop, a movie in which an entire plane full of people learn it's not a good idea to mess with Liam Neeson, it seems like an opportune time to inventory the many reasons why this is a guy you're better off leaving alone. Just in case you were thinking about maybe lifting his wallet or something.   Even His Superhero Is Lethal After Evil Dead II and before Spider-Man, Sam Raimi made an R-rated superhero movie called Darkman. For those who have yet to see it, Darkman is not a nice superhero. He has severe rage issues and unlike wimps like Batman, does not hesitate to kill his enemies. A lot. To help make sure everyone knows this character's severity, Sam Raimi wisely cast Liam Neeson in the role. Because...

Review: Darkman (Blu-ray)

20 February 2014 1:25 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Darkman is a movie I have a lot of affection for, as it was one of the first R-rated movies I snuck into with friends back in junior high. Undoubtedly one of Sam Raimi’s most ambitious projects, Darkman goes for gusto with its wacky sense of humor firmly intact.

While its imperfections are numerous, there’s a lot I will always admire about Darkman. It still remains one of Sam Raimi’s most ambitious projects to date and it’s hard to do anything but admire the kind of lofty ambitions Raimi tosses at the screen with his self-created superhero crime thriller/dark comedy mash-up.

In Darkman, Liam Neeson plays lovesick scientist Peyton Westlake, who gets caught in the middle of a dangerous political cover-up when his well-meaning girlfriend Julie (Frances McDormand) leaves an incriminating document at his lab connecting a corrupt developer to maniacal mob boss Robert Durant (Larry Drake, »
