Earlier this year, Dynamite Entertainment announced plans to relaunch their Army of Darkness comic book series. Titled Ash and the Army of Darkness, the new series is written by Steve Niles and we have preview pages from the second issue:
“Dynamite is proud to announce that their flagship comic book title, Army of Darkness, will receive a complete overhaul and a new ongoing series as imagined by Steve Niles, acclaimed author of 30 Days of Night and Batman: Gotham County Line. A horror/action series with dark comedic overtones, the newly-titled Ash and the Army of Darkness continues the time-traveling, demon-fighting adventures of Ash Williams, the smart-mouthed hero of the 1992 cult-favorite film of the same name.
“What I’m doing with Ash and the Army of Darkness is a complete reboot,” says Niles. “We start and the last frame of the film and then go right to the next. It’s »

Hopefully, this fan series can stay up on YouTube, unlike the creative Marvel Zombies vs Army of Darkness fan film that was yanked by Marvel. Evil Rebuilt.

Though it simply wouldn't be true to say that most fan films are worth watching, there's nevertheless something about them that is endlessly alluring. In the world of fan-made films, absolutely Anything is possible, allowing for fun mash-ups and crossovers that the studios would never be able to provide for us. Want to see Leatherface battle Jason? Freddy go toe-to-toe with Michael Myers? Your wish is YouTube's command!
Though Evil Dead's Ash has never crossed over with any other franchise characters in the world of movies, he has encountered Jason, Freddy and even Herbert West in the world of comic books. A five-issue comic series was also launched in 2007 called Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, which pit the chainsaw-handed one-liner spouting badass against zombified versions of Marvel's most iconic superheroes. Though it's highly unlikely that we'll ever see such wild imagery leap off of the page and onto the screen, »

Even though Evil Dead's hero Ash (the mighty Bruce Campbell) hasn't been on the big screen since 1992, his story has actually continued in the pages of Dynamite Comic's Army of Darkness series. One of the most popular stories from the run is a crossover between Dynamite and Marvel Comics, Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, where Ash has to tangle with undead versions of Marvel superheroes, themselves subject to a popular run of mini-series born from an idea by Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar. Now the Marvel Zombies, let alone the Army of Darkness crossover, is something we will never, ever see on the big screen, so thankfully director Brian Rosenthal has put together this awesome fan film (which he also shot and edited). Starting off with Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy running from a zombie attack, it features a perfect Bruce Campbell impersonation from actor David Vonhippchen, and a »

Fan films can be very hit-or-miss. Some have a great concept, but the execution sucks. Others have a good idea, but because of budget restraints, it doesn't look too hot. This one based on the Marvel Zombies vs Army of Darkness comics though? All kinds of awesome. It begins with Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy at the start of the zombie outbreak, and turns into a battle between Ash and an undead Wolverine. Keep your eyes peeled while watching this video, because there are several other »

Considering the outlandish nature of the comic book series, it's very likely that fans will never see a big screen version of the Marvel Zombies limited series. The five-issue run is set in an alternate universe where the world's superhero population has been infected with a virus which turned them into zombies. Therefore, it's even less likely that we'll see that other five-issue comic book series that followed: Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness. That comic book series brings Bruce Campbell's Ash character from the third film in Sam Raimi's horror series into the Marvel zombie world, and makes for some epic horror mash-up goodness. Now someone has taken the time and passion to craft a fan film bringing the series to life. Watch! Here's Brian Rosenthal's Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness from Geek Tyrant: The story follows Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy trying to survive a zombie apocalypse, »

This week's American Horror Story boasts enough weirdness to power an entire season of most supernatural TV shows...
This review contains spoilers.
3.6 The Axeman Cometh
I love the way American Horror Story mines history for inspiration. Murder House tied back to the tale of old Hollywood's depravity, the dirty little secrets spawned by all that illicit sex and heavy drinking in the squeaky-clean golden days, the Black Dahlia, Sal Mineo's murder, and all kinds of fun stuff. Asylum brought in a lot of the real-life abuses wrought by mental health facilities, aversion therapy, Nazi war criminals being secreted away in American and given cushy government jobs, and the like. Now, in a history-rich city like New Orleans, American Horror Story's cast and crew are making great hay with the collection of strange urban legends, pseudo-mythical figures, and actual terrifying events that took »

[Spoiler Alert If You Haven't Seen The Latest American Horror Story: Coven!!!!]
Not surprisingly, Halloween ended quite bloodily on American Horror Story: Coven. Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) fended off a parade of zombies with the help of a chainsaw and poor Myrtle (Frances Conroy) was framed by Fiona (Jessica Lange) and burned at the stake. But is anyone really ever dead on Ahs: Coven? EW talked to co-creator Ryan Murphy about “Burn Witch Burn” and his plans for the just-greenlit fourth season.
Entertainment Weekly: It feels like you really wanted to explore the two horrible mothers on the show: Madame Lalaurie and Fiona. It was interesting to see that Lalaurie was as »

Founded in 1998 and picking up a whole lot of steam in more recent years, Funko specializes in toys of pop-culture icons, ranging from movie/TV characters to advertising mascots like Count Chocula and his cereal monster friends. One of their most popular offerings is a line of 3 3/4" figurines called 'Pop! Vinyl,' which oftentimes depict horror icons as looking a whole lot cuter than we're used to them looking. Characters like Freddy, Jason and Michael Myers have all been given the vinyl treatment in the past, and Funko has just unveiled a whole new batch of vinyl terrors!
The likes of Captain Spaulding, Trick 'r Treat's Sam, Pennywise and even an Army of Darkness Deadite are set for release on November 12th, to name just a few of the new additions you see above. It's worth mentioning that while all seven of the other characters have been given their own toys over the years, »

The Evil Dead has been the talk of the horror community over the course of the past couple weeks, a tumultuous period of time full of ups and downs, excitement and disappointment.
First we found out that Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi would be returning for Army of Darkness 2, and then Campbell himself debunked the rumor he started – chalking it up to fanboy fantasy. Then we learned that Fede Alvarez wouldn’t be directing the sequel to this year’s remake, followed by the news that he in fact would be returning to the cabin in the woods.
Honestly, I don’t even know what to think anymore. About any of it. I’ve kind of had enough of the rumors and reports about the franchise, and I think we all need a break. So let’s all take one together, while soaking in the glorious sights of the top »

(Cbr) So, that "Army of Darkness" sequel Bruce Campbell was talking about the other week? Not happening, according to … uh, Bruce Campbell. “It’s all Internet b.s. – there’s no reality whatsoever,” the actor said in a recent interview. “These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi’s mouth, next thing you know, we’re making a sequel.” In fairness, Campbell’s the one who ignited the fire in the first place. During a convention appearance last month, the erstwhile Ash Williams said, “the answer is yes” to a sequel, after joking about the possibilities of an aged Ash. “Ash would »

Needless to say, anytime that either Sam Raimi or Bruce Campbell discuss Army of Darkness 2, it garners a fair amount of interest. Recently we’ve heard that Sam Raimi is currently working on a sequel, and apparently that's part of the reason why the follow up to the Evil Dead reboot has been put on the back burner. Bruce Campbell himself also made comments indicating he’s open to a return recently, although these were far from conclusive.
However, it looks like it was all much ado about nothing. Talking to Screen Rant, Campbell said that "it’s not news. Let me dispel that right now. It’s all internet B.S. There’s no reality whatsoever. These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi’s mouth, next thing you know, »
Right, someone needs to make up their minds about whether this film is happening or not.
Despite telling people that Army of Darkness 2 was going ahead (not to mention Fede Alverez also saying it was happening), Ash Williams himself Bruce Campbell has dispelled the rumours by saying that there is no truth behind the claims and that the movie is "way not confirmed".
"It's all Internet b.s. - there's no reality whatsoever" the b-movie legend told Erin Darling at Comikaze. "These random comments slip out of my mouth or Sam Raimi's mouth, next thing you know, we're making a sequel. Unless it's announced from Renaissance Pictures, it's not real"
He then goes on to talk about how the Internet "prays" to rumours. "I feel bad for people" Campbell said. "The Internet prays to mis-information. It's unbelievable how much mis-information there is."
Yeah, mis-information you reported Bruce.
