Deadly Dialogue: A Conversation on Cinema with Tony Gardner

19 December 2016 5:20 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Hello, readers! Welcome back for another installment of one of our featured columns here at Daily Dead, Deadly Dialogue: A Conversation on Cinema, in which we catch up with notable talent who have worked in the horror and sci-fi genres—both in front of and behind the camera—to discuss the films that inspired them to become the artists they are today.

For this month’s discussion, Daily Dead spoke with Tony Gardner, legendary special effects artist and president of Alterian, Inc. With an already prolific career that began in the early 1980s, Gardner has consistently established himself as one of the premier talents in the industry, contributing to films like The Return of the Living Dead, Cocoon, Evil Dead II, Harry and the Hendersons, The Lost Boys, Gorillas in the Mist, Nightbreed, The Blob, Darkman, Army of Darkness, Hocus Pocus, Seed of Chucky (in which he has a pretty sweet cameo and death), 127 Hours, »

Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 Episode 9 Review: Home Again

4 December 2016 6:35 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It's good to be back...or is it?

On Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 Episode 9 during a drunken stupor, Ash came up with a brilliant idea: go back in time and prevent his younger self from ever finding the Necronomicon. Sounds simple enough right? 

However, nothing ever comes easy for our deadite fighting friends, and Ash usually always finds a way to make a dire situation even worse.

There are many theories regarding time travel, and none of them are black and white. One common idea that most of them share is that if something in the past is altered, even if considered trivial, it will have a significant impact on the future.

I wasn't initially on board with Ash's plan at first. After putting his well-thought-out plan into effect and stopping Baal at the end of Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 Episode 8, I was a little disappointed that Ash »

October Horrors Day 30 – Ash vs. Evil Dead

30 October 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ash vs. Evil Dead

Created by Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi and Tom Spezialy

Starring Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, Jill Marie Jones and Lucy Lawless.

Synopsis:

Set several years after the events of the films, the series follows Ash still working as a stock boy, still charming his way into the arms of various women, and still making completely idiotic choices that threaten the future of all life on the planet. As the evil he thought vanquished returns to threaten humanity once again, Ash sets out with his new sidekicks Pedro and Kelly on an epic road trip to finally vanquish the demonic hordes of the deadites, and retire in his dream home of Jacksonville.

What has probably become abundantly clear to you all dear readers is that I am a big fan of the Evil Dead franchise. I love everything about it -the gory effects, the wacky set »

Halloween Party Tips and Indoor Lighting with the Philips Hue System

25 October 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I’ve taken part in outdoor Halloween decorating nearly as long as I’ve been alive, but it’s only over the last five years or so that I’ve been having Halloween parties with friends and family. Every year, it gets a little more elaborate, and I’ve learned a lot about what to do (and what not to do) along the way. Here are my tips and tricks for your upcoming Halloween party:

Pick a Theme

No matter what your budget is, pick a theme for your party, even if it’s only loosely followed. This will help with your playlist, food, and drinks. It can also be a great way to help invited guests pick a costume. As an added bonus, send out invites that match your theme to get your guests into the spirit of your party ahead of time. There are countless themes to choose from, »

October Horrors Day 20 – Army of Darkness (1992)

20 October 2016 10:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Army of Darkness, 1992.

Directed by Sam Raimi

Starring Bruce Campbell, Embeth Davidtz, Marcus Gilbert and Ian Abercrombe.

Synopsis:

Following on from the events of Evil Dead II (1987) which saw Ash vanquish the demonic force before being sucked through a time portal to the Dark Ages, we now find our wise-cracking hero having to seek out the cursed Necronomicon so as to find his way back to the present. However, due to his own general incompetence, Ash once more accidentally releases the forces of evil and has to do battle with them in order to save the world.

We return to the Evil Dead franchise for the third time in my cavalcade of horror, although in this instance, I might be cheating a bit this time around. After all, Army of Darkness is not really a horror film at all, instead being more of a fantasy adventure tale, albeit one with a chainsaw wielding, »

Great Job, Internet!: Watch Bruce Campbell and Lucy Lawless rate iconic horror movie scenes

14 October 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

If there’s anybody that knows his way around gory, over-the-top horror, it’s Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell, a man who’s been sprayed with more brightly dyed corn syrup than the kids in the front row of an Insane Clown Posse concert. To promote his just-returned Starz series Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Campbell recently sat down with co-star Lucy Lawless to offer up their opinions on some other entries in the pantheon of great horror movie scenes.

And while the results were a little surprising—Ghost Ship is a better piece of filmmaking than Alien, apparently—it’s mostly just fun to hear the two long-time co-workers dish on guys in masks and the bit where a woman gets turned into a “meat puppet” in Hellraiser III. Plus, the producers slip in a clip from Evil Dead II, prompting Campbell to declare it “a classic motion picture,” even »

October Horrors Day 11 – Evil Dead II (1987)

11 October 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Evil Dead II, 1987

Directed by Sam Raimi

Starring Bruce Campbell, Sarah Berry, Dan Hicks and Kassie Wesley

Synopsis:

Ash, the sole survivor of the previous film, returns to contend with the evil spirits summoned from the cursed Necronomicon, the book of the dead. Joined by those present at the book’s original discovery and others, Ash and his new allies struggle to find a way to banish the evil forever before it destroys them in all manner of horrific ways.

Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell take us back to that ghostly cabin in the woods for another slice of gore-drenched horror, inadvertently creating one of the greatest sequels ever made, and one of my favourite horror films of all time. I am of course referring to Evil Dead II

If one were to watch the first two instalments of this series back to back, they would be struck by the sudden tonal shift between instalments. »

Ash Vs Evil Dead season 2 episode 2 review: The Morgue

9 October 2016 6:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Stephen Harber Oct 10, 2016

This week's Ash Vs The Evil Dead illustrates the show's transition from superhero horror to crazy sitcom...

This review contains spoilers.

2.2 The Morgue

When Roger Ebert reviewed Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn back in 1987, he looked past the gore and the guts that casual viewers would be disgusted by and understood what Sam Raimi was doing: making a Three Stooges-inspired satirical romp dressed up like a midnight splatter flick for Halloween. Ebert articulated the charm of the film series that spawned it in one profound paragraph:

"I'm not suggesting that Evil Dead 2 is fun merely because you can spot the references to other movies. It is because (a) the violence and gore are carried to such an extreme that they stop being disgusting and become surrealistic; (b) the movie's timing aims for comedy, not shocks, and (c) the grubby, low-budget intensity of the »

Official Ash vs Evil Dead season 2 poster revealed

23 August 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ash and the gang salute the American flag in a brand new official poster for the second season of Ash vs Evil Dead, the hit Starz series set in the Evil Dead universe. Plastered at the very top of the one-sheet is the tagline “Glory, Gory, Hallelujah!” which, in addition to being an homage to “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” is a suitable three word summary of the show in general. See it here…

Highlighted on the poster are stars Bruce Campbell (Ash Williams), Lucy Lawless (Ruby Knowby), Ray Santiago (Pablo Simon Bolivar) and Dana DeLorenzo (Kelly Maxwell), who all the survived the chaotic events of season 1.

While not for the faint of heart, the series was warmly received by both critics and longtime Evil Dead fans when it premiered last year, possibly due to the fact that the same team behind the Evil Dead films, Campbell, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, »

How Dana Gould’s Horror Movie Fandom Evolved Into ‘Stan Against Evil’

31 July 2016 4:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Stan Against Evil” is a personal show for Dana Gould — not just because he’s the creator and writer, but because it reflects his personal fandom. He’s a self-avowed horror aficionado, the perfect background for someone behind a show about a pair of present-day New England sheriffs dealing with some unfriendly evil spirits.

Horror comedies aren’t a new phenomenon and Gould was quick to mention that some of his favorites were big influences (among the films name-checked over the course of the panel were “An American Werewolf in London” and “Evil Dead II”).

David Crow Jul 28, 2016

Bruce Campbell, Lucy Lawless, Rob Tapert, and more on Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2...

This article is from Den Of Geek Us.

Every San Diego Comic-Con offers a different experience and a unique hue to its vintage. Thus it’s impossible to rank one Sdcc adventure over another, yet there are moments at each that stand tall. And running into Bruce Campbell and friends on several occasions this past week while they were promoting Ash vs Evil Dead season 2 certainly qualifies as a hard-to-top highlight.

Indeed, we were able to catch up with Groovy Bruce’s even groovier chin, as well as at different points Rob Tapert, who is executive producer on Ash vs Evil Dead, and fellow cast members Lucy Lawless, Dana DeLorenzo, and Ray Santiago, during a roundtable interview and the season 2 premiere screening. During it all, we learned some pretty nifty details about what »
