“Keep your damn filthy bones outta my mouth!”
Army Of Darkness plays this weekend (August 22nd and 23rd) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.
If they’d put Sam Raimi in charge of the banks there wouldn’t be any recession, because what he managed to do with a small budget earlier in his career is absolutely remarkable.
One reason that the Evil Dead series is such a satisfying trilogy of movies is that Sam Raimi added to the formula with each new instalment in an intelligent way. Where the first film was an out-and-out horror film, the second was a horror-comedy, while Army Of Darkness (1992) was a horror-comedy-fantasy. This meant that each movie has its own distinct personality, while sharing a single core idea. With Army Of Darkness, Raimi produced the most commercial entry in the series and played »

I don't pop a boner over Mondo posters like some people, but I do love me some Evil Dead 2 and Army Of Darkness, and I'm pretty impressed with these new ones for Sam Raimi's horror movies. The Evil Dead 2 poster was by artist Randy Ortiz, and the two different Army Of Darkness prints were created by Tom Whalen and Richey Beckett. If you're interested in buying these posters, Mondo will be announcing when they'll be available for purchase at a random »

It's the special time of the year again when Mondo puts out exclusive artwork that has us all drooling. Of course most of us have come to terms with the fact that we will never be lucky enough to ever own one of these, as they sell out in seconds, but damn it, we try!
Up next... Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness get the treatment!
"On sale tomorrow [8/14] we have Evil Dead 2 by Randy Ortiz and a couple of Army Of Darkness posters from Richey Beckett and Tom Whalen! These all come from one of our favorite horror franchises, and all three artists did an incredible job," write the purveyors of all this is cool.

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, […]

Trees that are vicious and alive, an Evil Ash coming to life, an army of Deadites rising up to vanquish mankind, and the list goes on. The Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, aka Book of the Dead, has put Ash and his friends through hell over the course of three movies. Now Mondo has unveiled a new batch of posters based on Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness that showcase the films’ good and evil forces facing off.
As with previous Mondo poster releases, these limited Evil Dead-based posters will go on sale at a random time on Thursday, August 14th. The time will be revealed via Mondo’s Twitter account. Each poster comes with a variant and prices vary depending on the individual print. Artists Randy Ortiz, Richey Beckett, and Tom Whalen created these new looks at the beloved horror franchise:

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!

Halloween will be here before we know it, folks. In an effort to get the holiday spirit going a little early, the good people at Mondo have unveiled some incredible posters for a pair of horror movie classics: Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness. Artist Randy Ortiz put together the haunting Evil Dead 2 posters, while there are two separate prints for Army of Darkness by Tom Whalen and Richey Beckett. There’s not a bad design in the bunch (triumphant Ash atop a bevy of creatures is particularly entertaining), and I imagine demand will be extremely high when these go on sale tomorrow. In the meantime, hit the jump to get a closer look. As always, follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement at a random time tomorrow, August 14th.

"Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up!"
There's been talk of an Army of Darkness 2 being developed by Sam Raimi and his brother. Both Raimi and Bruce Campbell have confirmed this. But since the Evil Dead TV series was announced I have no idea if that sequel is in the cards anymore. I hope it happens! Regardless of if it does or doesn't, I thought it would be fun to check out some facts about one of my favorite films ever… Army of Darkness. There are 13 facts here to go through, some I'm sure you'll know, but maybe there's one or two that you won't.
Bruce Campbell says that in order to make it appear that the chainsaw was always running, tobacco smoke was pumped through a tube that was slid up his right pant leg, up his shirt, and into the chainsaw.One of the items visible in Ash's trunk »

Motel Hell is available now on Blu-ray. That information alone should be enough to send horror fans shrieking into the streets to party until the wee hours of the morning. And we here all want to get into the festivities as well.
To celebrate the release of Motel Hell on Blu-ray, we've compiled our Top 9 Chilling Chainsaw Kills. Of course this is in reference to the iconic chainsaw scene in the climax of the film. There was something simply unforgettable about Rory Calhoun wielding a ridiculously long chainsaw while wearing a pig head like a Halloween mask. Classic!
But before we get to our top horrific movie chainsaw kills, we have some honorable mentions to share with you. We've got to go way back to find some of the earliest on-screen chainsaw kills. We came up with Dark of the Sun (1968) and The Wizard of Gore (1970) for two of the first buzzsaw butcherings. »

America has Tmnt fever! Michael Bay’s souped-up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot raked it in at the box—office over the weekend, but everyone knows the greatest movie about those radioactive ‘Heroes in a Halfshell’ was the same-titled 1990 epic
The entire concept of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was conceived by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird who originally created them to parody the dark, gritty comic books of the early 80s. Of course, the series branched away and became a pop culture phenomenon of its own and when something becomes a monstrous hit, you can almost guarantee a motion picture is right down the alley. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit the theaters in 1990 and instead of it being a continuation of the hit cartoon series, the film goes back to its source »

I actually really enjoyed the Sam Rami-produced and Fede Alvarez-directed Evil Dead remake, and I would have loved to see a sequel set in that same world. However, according to the star of the film, Jane Levy, it doesn't sound like it's going to happen. It makes sense that a sequel would be put on the back burner now that a TV series is in development. This is what Levy said to Bloody-Disgusting:
"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, what? [Laughs] I honestly don’t know, but it doesn’t seem like there’s going to be an Evil Dead 2 anytime soon. At least, not with me in it."
I still hope that it happens one day and that the project isn't completely dead. »

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, »

Pulp Comics!! God, I can’t believe I’m turning into that guy. The sad thing is that I am the proud owner of a trenchcoat that looks exactly like it came out of a detective novel. No, not a creepy Hot Topic black leather duster, I’m talking the real thing, as vintage as you can get without dropping a few grand. Definitely holding on to it in case trenchcoats come back in style. Or the apocalypse happens. Whichever comes first.
Also, I just noticed that, for the second time, I’m reviewing all #3 issues. I think it’s a good omen.
The Shadow: Midnight In Moscow #3
Writer: Howard Chaykin

I’m pretty excited about a new announcement involving The Shadow. Interestingly, this new title is going down at Dark Horse Comics, rather than at Dynamite, the »

The good news is that now that all the singing and the farting around is done in Hobbiton and the story has kicked in good and proper, the majority of this second in Peter Jackson’s portrayal of a slim Tolkien story overblown to epic proportions is mostly action with a minimum of plot. It’s still got various story beats it has to hit of course and is very much a middle chapter, but this has a momentum which was really missing from An Unexpected Journey.
In this second Hobbit film you can start to see the stuff that was added in to pad out the two films into a trilogy with characters who do not appear in the books introduced and a weird elf/dwarf romance along with a more angsty and badass Legolas, strangely enough it doesn’t feel out-of-place.

After a brief hiatus due to our live coverage of Comic-Con, we’re back with a double-sized edition of the Indie Spotlight, highlighting the recent independent horror news sent our way. Today’s feature includes a new trailer for Come Back to Me and I Spill Your Guts 2, release details on Schism, Silent Retreat, and the Class of Nuke ‘Em High soundtrack, and much more:
Come Back to Me Trailer: “Sarah (Walder) and Josh McLaren (Passmore) are a young married couple living in suburban Las Vegas. Shortly after a car accident, Sarah begins to suffer a series of disturbing memory lapses and frequent blackouts that seem to be increasing in intensity. Unsure of what is happening, and feeling as though she is losing her mind, Sarah comes to learn she is pregnant. To add to her shock, she subsequently discovers that her husband is sterile. As her marriage and world begin to fall apart, »

Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" reboot was released last year and went on to gross almost $100 million worldwide on a budget of $17 million. That was enough for the studio to announce a sequel. Since then, we learned that Raimi is developing a sequel to "Army of Darkness" and is working on an "Evil Dead" TV series. So what does this mean for "Evil Dead 2"? According to "Evil Dead" actress Jane Levy, who played Mia in the film, a sequel is not in the works. "I don't think they're gonna make it," she said. "They're always coming up with a new thing - now I hear they're making a TV show. I was like, 'what?' It doesn't seem like there's going to be an 'Evil Dead 2' anytime soon. At least, not with me in it." »
Even before last year's well received Evil Dead remake hit theaters, director Fede Alvarez claimed that Evil Dead 2 was on the fast track. Around this same time, director of the original 1981 The Evil Dead, Sam Raimi claimed he was making his own franchise sequel titled Army of Darkness 2, a follow up to the third installment, 1993's Army Of Darkness. The end of the Evil Dead remake even set up a future clash between cult icon Bruce Campbell as Ash, and new horror heroine Mia, played by Jane Levy.
Back in May, director Fede Alvarez spoke about the planned sequel to Evil Dead, denying reports that he’d left the project and stating that he’s still looking for the right idea for the follow-up to the 2013 reboot. However, with Sam Raimi working on Army of Darkness 2, as well as bringing Bruce Campbell’s Ash to the small screen for an Evil Dead TV series, it seems that star Jane Levy isn’t convinced that we’ll see a sequel to the reboot.
“I don’t think they’re gonna make it,” Levy tells Arrow in the Head. “I mean, they’re always coming up with a new thing- now I hear they’re making a TV show. I was like, what? [Laughs] I think they just like exciting their fans and confusing them. I honestly don’t know, but it doesn’t seem like there’s going to be »
