In 1981 five friends traveled to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly released flesh-possessing demons. The story, know known as “Evil Dead,” became one of the best cult classic films and launched Bruce Campbell and director Sam Raimi’s careers.
The low budget horror flick was screened at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival, with Stephen King even praising the film. Once it was distributed by New Line Cinema it went on to earn $2.4 million worldwide.
The project was shot on location in a remote cabin in Newport, Tennessee. It was reported that the filming process was extremely uncomfortable, with many cast and crew members sustaining injuries. The video below takes you back to the epic movie and its wild and terrifying scenes.

Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness is one of the most important “gateway” horror films, which opened the door for many of us into the genre. In fact, I often see people mention that they saw Army before they even knew The Evil Dead or its sequel existed. No matter what order you experienced Sam Raimi’s […] »
So, we’re almost at the halfway point for movie year 2016. Since we’re a few weeks into the Summer flick season, the studios are trying to hedge their bets (and investments) by delivering entertainment with a recognizable name. There’s been a glut of sequels (two this very weekend), and two franchise films based on comic book characters (Cap’s latest is the year’s biggest hit). Hmmm, what other properties are ripe for cinematic exploitation? Ah yes, games! Just a few weeks ago Angry Birds, an animated romp based on an “app”, grabbed the number one box office slot from the shield-slinger! And this weekend sees a live action/CGI-animated hybrid based on an immensely popular on-line video game that began 22 years ago. Now, the studios have been trying to lure game players into the multiplex for years, well over twenty since those Super Mario Brothers made the »

The project has a working title of “Stormfall” and the studio is seeking writers for the script. Raimi is developing with an eye to direct.
“Stormfall” is the second Raimi movie set up with Warner Bros. this after Bill Block came on to Raimi’s “World War 3” project in February as part of Block’s first-look deal at the studio. “World War 3” is based on predictions in George Friedman’s nonfiction best-selling book “The Next 100 Years.”
Raimi gained notice in 1982 with “The Evil Dead,” followed by “Crimewave,” the sequel “The Evil Dead 2,” “Darkman” and “Army of Darkness” — the third film in the “Evil Dead” series. He also directed “The Quick and the Dead, »

In June, Lion Forge Comics is set to launch a new series based upon the post-wrestling exploits of former WWE and Lucha Underground star Chavo Guerrero, Jr., entitled Chavo Guerrero’s Warrior’s Creed, and we have a preview of the first issue for you here…
So here’s the thing about Chavo Guerrero, Jr. — the guy’s unstoppable. With 12 major wrestling championships in a career spanning just as many years, he’s one of the most electrifying performers on the circuit. After his “retirement” from the ring he went on to dominate the first year of El Rey Network’s Lucha Underground, much to the excitement of his 500K social media followers and El Rey’s 10M-strong viewership. You could say Chavo’s stardom is matched only by his incredible family legacy, as he is the third generation of Guerrero family grappling. This heritage, charisma, and physicality is what »

Ash takes his chainsaw and boomstick on the campaign trail in Dynamite Entertainment’s Army of Darkness: Ash for President. Written by Elliott Serrano with artwork by Diego Galindo, the one-shot comic book will be released this August, and we have preview pages (minus the dialogue) teasing what to expect from the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis this time around:

As we anxiously await Star Wars: Episode VIII, writer-director Rian Johnson has shared two new photographs from behind the scenes via social media, as well as a little news. The photographs (above and below) are captioned: “Good. Bad. I’m the guy with the microfiber sham.” The quotation is an apparent reference to a scene in Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness, in which Ash (Bruce Campbell) faces off against himself.

As we anxiously await Star Wars: Episode VIII, writer/director Rian Johnson has kindly shared two new photographs from behind the scenes via social media, as well as a little news. The photographs (above and below) are captioned: “Good. Bad. I’m the guy with the microfiber sham.” The quotation is an apparent reference to a scene in Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness, in which Ash (Bruce Campbell) faces off against himself. Watch the clip below; the dialogue in question can be heard near the end. For those who are not familiar with cleaning products, a microfiber sham is a cloth commonly used to clean windows. The photographs appear to indicate that microfiber shams existed "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away." As for...

Though the snaps don't exactly give us any real clues about the plot of the film -- what, did you really expect Disney to sign off on something like that? -- it's still exciting to get even a small glimpse at the behind-the-scenes workings of the "Star Wars" set, and knowing that the flick is already 50 percent completed (from a filming standpoint anyway) is pretty cool, too. As for what the photos do depict, the first appears to be some sort of Rebel-affiliated aircraft (perhaps an X-wing?), while the second shows a scene inside a First Order station.
Movies.com points out that the caption Johnson used for the images is a riff on a scene from "Army of Darkness," the campy third flick in »

The world still has a year and a half to wait for “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” but director Rian Johnson is halfway through production and he’s posting set photos to celebrate. On his blog, Johnson posted two arty black-and-white pictures behind the scenes of filming the sequel, which is set for release on Dec. 15, 2017. “I can’t believe we’re halfway through the shoot. (We’re halfway through the shoot!)” he wrote.

The still untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII is now officially halfway through its shoot, and to mark the occasion, director Rian Johnson has posted a couple of black and white behind-the-scenes snaps from the set to his Tumblr page.
Johnson had previously shared a similarly stylish image of the returning Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o), and though these don’t seem to feature any of the main characters, they should still be off interest to fans.
The first image shows off a Resistance pilot in his X-Wing as a crew member gives the window a wipe (not a whole lot of note there), but the second one gives us a look at what we assume is a member of the First Order, wearing a new type of uniform. The helmet is quite similar to the ones worn by the Death Star gunners way back in A New Hope, »

Before the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters, it was revealed that Disney plans on releasing a new Star Wars movie every year, indefinitely. Fans will get to see the first spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16 of this year, with Star Wars: Episode VIII following on December 15, 2017. Production started on Star Wars: Episode VIII in February, and today marks a very special day in the filming process, with director Rian Johnson revealing two new photos from the set, along with news that production is halfway complete.
The photos don't reveal too much, with an unspecified crew member using a microfiber sham to clean off the cockpit of what appears to be an X-Wing ship in one image, while cleaning off a control panel in another. We don't get a great look at the actor who is in the cockpit of the X-Wing. This »
I would be lying if I said Box of Dread’s Shaun Of The Dead/Army Of Darkness mashup theme didn’t excite the hell out of me. I mean, come on, these are two pretty iconic and beloved flicks. Well, this month’s Box of Dread definitely did not disappoint in terms of cool collectibles and swag!
First item out of the box was Vinyl Sugar’s Shaun (Shaun Of The Dead) Dorbz figure. It’s a really nice vinyl figure complete with details like Shaun’s nametag, his trusty cricket bat, and even the tiny red [blood] stain on his shirt. And bonus, the box wasn’t damaged!
Next, we have some Starship Troopers trading cards. Talk about some “unlikely heroes”! Circa 1997, these bad boys features images from Paul Verhoeven’s action-packed Sci-Fi, as well as storyboard sketches and facts about the scenes. These cards are practically oozing nostalgia. »

Dynamite Entertainment has debuted a preview of its Vampirella/Army of Darkness trade paperback ahead of its release tomorrow; check it out here…
Horror icons from two universes collide as Ash Williams, the chainsaw-armed Chosen One of the small and big screen, crosses paths with the supernatural superheroine Vampirella in a story set during the events of the cult classic film, Army of Darkness!
When Ash misspoke the incantation to acquire the Necronomicon, an unholy book written in blood, the spell ripped Vampirella – a force for good, despite her blood-hungry fangs – from her own time and back to 1300 Ad. Infected by Deadite magic, she stalks the halls of Lord Arthur’s castle, unable to control her thirst. Even if that time-lost chucklehead Ash can free her of the demonic mutation, can he convince his allies – primitive screwheads that they are – that she shouldn’t be burned at the stake?

Ash has spent more time partying than killing deadites in the time between Army of Darkness and the TV series, so it’s no surprise that the first image of Ash vs Dead Season 2 shows him chainsaw-tapping a keg in Florida. The new season may start off with Ash living the good life, but executive producer Craig Digregorio promises that the “party is cut short when [Ash] must return home to continue the fight against evil.”
“The second season of the Starz Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” will be 10 half-hour episodes. The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby, who now possesses the powerful Necronomicon; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s loyal sidekick dealing with the trauma he suffered in the cabin; and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, »
