It's official: Cult horror classic The Evil Dead will rise again as a TV series next year on Starz. The show, Ash Vs. Evil Dead, will play out over 10 half-hour episodes. Movie director Sam Raimi, who made the original movie in 1981 and its two sequels (Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness), will executive produce the series, according to Entertainment Weekly, and will write and direct its first episode. Actor Bruce Campbell, who starred in the three movies and made a cameo in the 2013 Evil Dead reboot, will reprise his role as Ash Williams. »
Strap on your chainsaw arm and get ready for the return of Ash. Starz announced on Monday that it has ordered a series version of "Evil Dead," a project announced by Sam Raimi back at San Diego Comic-Con in July. The 10-episode order for "Ash Vs. Evil Dead" is full of intriguing elements. First, the most obvious: Bruce Campbell will return to play Ash, as if anybody else would be able to get away with interpreting the iconic role. Of the plot, Starz summarizes, "Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons -- personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the »

Body horror plays off of one of our most natural reactions as living creatures, avoiding pain. Since we are all biologically pre-programmed to do this, body horror can be very efficient at making you squirm.

Thirty years ago today, James Cameron’s The Teminator dominated the box office on its opening day.
Though the Arnold Schwarzenegger action film is now considered a modern classic, it’s not exactly the best film in its franchise.
In the intervening nine years between The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) became a hard-willed warrior, determined to protect her son John Connor and the future of humanity. That’s one big step up from her colourless, sometimes hysterical demeanour in The Terminator. Already Terminator 2 is the better movie.
Terminator isn’t the only franchise that has a high-achieving younger sibling. Let’s go through some of our favourites.
James Cameron makes a good sequel. Unfortunately, his follow-up to Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi thriller Alien was postponed for years while Cameron wrote and directed The Terminator and Rambo: First Blood Part II. We’re very »

With Halloween fast approaching, EW is picking the five best films in a variety of different horror movie categories. Each day, we'll post our top picks from specific group—say, vampire movies or slasher flicks—and give you the chance to vote on which is your favorite. On Oct. 31, EW will reveal your top choices. Today, we're kicking things off with demons. To the nonbelievers, demons are kind of funny—all horns and red faces, too unrealistic to provoke real scares. Then a legitimately terrifying, devil-centric movie—say, Paranormal Activity—comes along...and suddenly demons aren't so silly anymore. A »

Director Sam Raimi, the man who brought us such films as Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness, the Spider-Man trilogy, Drag me to Hell, Darkman, The Quick and the Dead, Oz The Great and Powerful, and more, now has his own action figure!
The Sam Raimi action figure comes from Credenda Studios, and it's a New York Comic Con exclusive. The carded figure will be available at the Tenacious Toys booth #208. The designer of the action figure, Beau Greener of Credenda Studios, will be signing the figures on Thursday at 4pm.
There's a limited run of only 50 figures, and they are priced at $65 a piece. This is the perfect collectors piece for any fan of Raimi, so if you get one, consider yourself lucky, especially since there are so few of them.

Psychological horrors are all well and good (and equally as effective in many respects), but sometimes we need some a good, old fashioned, relentless horrorshow to truly keep us lying awake at night unable to sleep. Of course, few movies get it right, with many going so over the top that they become laughable instead of horrifying.
Narrowing down the greatest and goriest horror movies to just ten is no easy feat, so below you’ll find simply a selection of some of our favourites. All of them handle fear in extremely different ways, some to enhance the story and others to simply shock the audience to a point where they’re left truly horrified.
Let’s fire up that chainsaw and head into it.
10. The Evil Dead
This is a franchise so bloody that it’s near impossible to single out just one of the movie’s as the goriest. »

Mondo has released some awesome poster art for Sam Raimi's Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. They were created by artists Randy Ortiz, Richey Beckett, and Tom Whalen. I love each of these poster designs, and they are a must-own for any fan of the cult classic horror films.
All posters will be available for purchase online sometime today. Follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement.

During Comic-Con, the collectible arthouse Mondo unveiled some awesome posters for Guardians of the Galaxy, not to mention announcing their foray into collectible toys with figures for The Iron Giant and more. Now Mondo is back to their regularly scheduled programming (via Badass Digest) with great artwork for two of the most revered cult classic horror films. Evil Dead II is given a stylish poster by Randy Ortiz while Army of Darkness is given two different prints by Tom Whalen and Richey Beckett. Technically there's six posters since each has a variant to go along with it, but if you like Mondo, you know the drill.

One of the complaints many people have about the pop culture poster scene is that the same handful of movies keep getting posters. It’s a valid argument. Massively popular films like Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, The Big Lebowski and Kill Bill do have infinitely more posters than their smaller counterparts. The reasons, though, […]

Mondo is revisiting Sam Raimi's sequels Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. If you recall, the company recited incantations from the Necronomicon in 2013 and brought forth two great prints. This time, artists Randy Ortiz, Richey Beckett and Tom Whalen are involved and, come tomorrow, Mondo will be dropping the prints you see here onto the public. As usual, you'll need to follow Mondo's Twitter page to find out when this will go up for sale (usually in the a.m.). There will be variants as well. Check 'em out!

Fede Alvarez’s grisly Evil Dead remake had us equal parts grossed out and engrossed, but Sam Raimi’s ever-shifting plans for the future of the horror franchise, which will now include a TV series, might mean that we’ll never see a direct follow-up to that film.
To be clear, that would be a real shame. Evil Dead, among its other strengths, worked to establish Jane Levy’s Mia as the new series’ protagonist – and the dramatic chops the Suburgatory alum showcased in the movie had me completely behind that, at least until Bruce Campbell’s Ash came into contact with her. But recent comments from Levy to Aith suggest Mia may end up being a one-and-done:
“I don’t think they’re gonna make it. I mean, they’re always coming up with a new thing- now I hear they’re making a TV show. I was like, »

All right you primitive screwheads, listen up. Sam Raimi ("Oz the Great and Powerful"), the father of the Evil Dead franchise surprised everyone at San Diego Comic-Con when he announced that a new Evil Dead television series was in development. The only concrete information that he provided was that he was currently in the process of writing it with Bruce Campbell, Rob Tapert and his brother Ivan Raimi. Once news hit the web everyone wanted to know if Bruce Campbell would reprise his role as 'Ash,' and according to this tweet from the actor, he will! “@DeaditeBill: Only if @GroovyBruce is the Star of this new tv series will I accept. That's the plan. pic.twitter.com/m7EkBFpl1b — Bruce Campbell (@GroovyBruce) July 27, 2014 Campbell previously starred in the original Evil Dead, the sequels Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. He made a "groovy" cameo in the Evil Dead reboot, »
