Has Bruce Campbell’s Ash Hung Up His Chainsaw For Good?

29 September 2017 9:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bruce Campbell will always be associated with Ash Williams from The Evil Dead. From the series’ splattered beginnings in the 1980s through to the bizarre yet awesome medieval spoof The Army of Darkness, through various spinoff videogames and, most recently, to the sleeper hit Ash vs. Evil Dead. There’s just something about his goofy, matinee idol looks and famously prominent chin that makes him the perfect foil for the deadite hordes.

But now, if we’re reading this interview that Campbell did with Syfy Wire right, Ash might be gone for good. When the outlet asked him a question beginning with, “When you hang up that chainsaw for the last time and Ash is gone, you’re moving on…” Campbell interrupted them with, “Who says I haven’t?”

When pressed on this, he added, “We finished season three of Ash vs Evil Dead. At the end of that season, »

Looking back at the early films of Peter Jackson

13 September 2017 5:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Allison Sep 29, 2017

He conquered the world with The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. But what about the first few films from Peter Jackson?

At the 2004 Academy Awards, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King swept the board with 11 statuettes, equalling the records previously set by Ben-Hur and Titanic. When collecting the award for Best Picture, director Peter Jackson made a passing reference to the two films with which he had started his career in the late 1980s - Bad Taste and Meet The Feebles - commenting that they had been “wisely overlooked by the Academy at the time”.

Despite Jackson’s dismissal of his own early work, these films represent more than a curious historical footnote; they are the first steps from one of the most important blockbuster film-makers of the last two decades. When viewed from the lofty gaze of hindsight, they are not only »

Great Job, Internet!: Sam Raimi shows that horror can be bloody hilarious

20 July 2017 9:23 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Evil Dead II is a genuine masterpiece, as grotesque as it is funny. These two sides of the movie have never felt like a mismatch—as America’s Funniest Home Videos, clear precursor to our Golden Age Of Television, shows, grievous injuries are hilarious (no matter what anyone says). Add ghosts and demons to a grainy VHS compilation of old people wiping out and the result would be a decent, low-rent approximation of Evil Dead II’s slapstick creepshow.

A video essay by Patrick (H) Willems takes a more detailed look at the apparent tension between scares and laughs, centering on Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead II to analyze what makes his horror comedies work so well.

The video’s premise seems a little precarious since horror and comedy have probably never seemed like an incongruous match to anyone but genre purists, but Willems’ conclusion ends up finding its way »

Practical-ly Perfect: Celebrating the Admirably Audacious Effects in Sam Raimi’s Darkman (1990)

1 June 2017 4:21 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Before tackling the Spider-Man trilogy, Master of Horror Sam Raimi gave the world his own unique brand of superhero storytelling with his 1990 neo-noir/horror/romance mash-up, Darkman, which paid homage to the larger-than-life characters and worlds of comic properties like Dick Tracy and Batman, as well as the tortured titular character in The Phantom of the Opera. A wildly hyperkinetic tale of revenge and loss, Darkman may not be Raimi’s most polished work, but I truly feel that given where he was at that time in his career, and the budget he had to play with, Darkman is easily one of Raimi’s most ambitious efforts (certainly right up there with the first two Evil Dead films).

One of my favorite aspects to Darkman (besides Larry Drake as the absolutely despicable crime boss Durant) has always been the film’s incredible effects, which were designed and created by Tony Gardner of Alterian, »

Blu-ray Review – Evil Ed (1995)

29 May 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Evil Ed, 1995.

Directed by Anders Jacobsson.

Starring Johan Rudebeck, Per Löfberg, Olof Rhodin, Camela Leierth, Anders Ek, and Bill Moseley.

Synopsis:

A mild-mannered video editor is given the job of editing a series of brutal slasher movies for his unscrupulous boss, with disastrous results.

Sometimes it can be a bit tricky being a horror fan because try as one might, no matter how seriously you take the genre and ferociously defend it to the death against those whose only exposure to anything approaching horror is a yearly watch of Paranormal Activity, there comes along a film like Evil Ed and you know there is no defending it no matter how you feel about it.

Taking its cue from the early masterpieces of Peter Jackson and Sam Raimi along with Stuart Gordon’s sense of the theatrically absurd (or absurdly theatrical, depending on how you look at it), Evil Ed is »

The Unbearable Loudness of Gunfire: An Interview with Ben Wheatley

15 May 2017 7:24 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

It’s probably fitting that Free Fire didn’t get a fair shake at the box office, if only because it seems destined, if not conceived outright, for a spot in the “underappreciated cult classic canon.” While the film, boasting an A-list cast led by Brie Larson, would appear to be co-writer/director Ben Wheatley’s most commercial film to date, Free Fire winds up shooting its way so far through the mainstream action genre that it winds up back in arthouse territory. The ‘70s-set plot involves an arms deal in an abandoned warehouse gone horribly wrong, but the particulars aren’t especially important. What is important is that Wheatley takes just about every Die Hard-style action movie trope to its furthest limit. Remember the scenes of John McClane dragging his bloodied torso around the Nakatomi Plaza? Well, pretty much every character spends most of the movie doing that, except in far more excruciating detail. »

Getting a Grip on ‘Evil Dead II’

22 March 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Celebrating 30 years worth of fanaticism and community in the cult of Ashley ‘Ash’ Williams.

Thanks to our Star Trekian utopia of VOD insta-satisfaction (“Number One, slap The Greasy Strangler on the view screen!”), it’s becoming difficult to remember the ruthless savagery of that bygone VHS hunt. I spent far too many days roaming my hometown and neighboring cities chasing down lesser-known Kurosawas, the Critters sequels, and the seemingly always elusive pre-Mad Max apocalyptic mindfuck, A Boy and His Dog. Too often I had to settle for less, and rewatch Police Academy 4 instead of the highbrow hilarity of Zapped! cuz some other Scott Baio devotee had the local Power Video on stakeout. If your tastes in cinema aligned with the Blockbuster new release guarantee then you were golden, but us degenerates with a predilection for Roger Corman, and movies made before our births were doomed to the endless quest.

Impressions & Photos of Sideshow Collectibles’ Evil Dead II Ash Sixth Scale Figure

21 March 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Although it may be difficult to believe, horror fans recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of Sam Raimi's return to one of the creepiest cabins in cinema in Evil Dead II. To celebrate the seminal sequel, Sideshow Collectibles recently released an Ash Williams sixth scale figure that they sent our way, and fans can rest assured that this depiction of the iconic character is incredibly detailed, comes with awesome accessories, and is, above all else, groovy.

Designed by Joe Allard based on Bruce Campbell’s appearance as Ash in Evil Dead II, this sixth scale figure is featured in epic fashion on the outside of the box, which could be proudly displayed by collectors on its own. Opening the box is well worth it, though, as Sideshow’s Ash figure is a sight to behold—and a hell of a lot of fun to place in different poses.

Toy Fair 2017: Neca

1 March 2017 8:11 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Toy Fair is an annual trade show where hundreds of toy companies get together to showcase their latest innovations for buyers and press. The following is a photo recap from the Neca booth. To see the rest of our coverage, click Here.

The Neca booth called out to me from afar with their lifesize foam figures of Deadpool, Harley Quinn, and Spider-Man. Unlike most items of that size, these were not just for display purposes. You can actually purchase each of these figures for around $1,000 each. Aside from the price, a total lack of space, and a wife I’d like to keep, I could certainly see myself a collector splurging on one of these because the quality is astounding.

Luckily, the attention to detail carries over to their much smaller scale collectibles. Their Evil Dead II Ultimate Edition 2-figure set was one of the most fun things to photograph at Toy Fair, »
