A new Army of Darkness comic book was announced recently by Dynamite Entertainment, and today we have our first look at some of the artwork from in Army of Darkness #1. The pieces you see here are the cover art and some interior pages of the first issue that were dreamed up by artist Larry Watts. As you can see, the new story takes Ash into space! Here are some additional details:
Dynamite Entertainment proudly announces that its flagship title and longest-running comic book series, Army of Darkness, will launch with a brand new #1 issue in December. Cullen Bunn, the celebrated writer of Deadpool, will take iconic horror hero Ash Williams somewhere he has never been before: outer space. Longtime franchise fans are invited to strap themselves in for the bold new direction.
Looks like fun! Now Sam Raimi just needs to make that sequel he has been working on. Thanks »

Ryan Murphy will freak people out for the foreseeable future: The "American Horror Story" creator has just inked a deal to make a new horror-comedy hybrid anthology series for Fox, set to debut next fall.
Murphy, along with "Glee" co-creator Brad Falchuck and "Glee" writer Ian Brennan, has received a straight-to-series order from the network for "Scream Queens," which Murphy has described as blending the lines between two distinct genres. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first season will be comprised of 15 hour-long episodes, "revolving around a college campus that's rocked by a series of murders."
Like its predecessor, "American Horror Story," the "Scream Queens" setting and characters will change from season to season. Each season is expected to focus on two female leads, though Vulture reports that it's unclear if "Queens" will also take a cue from "Ahs" and recycle the same actresses in different roles.

The hypothetical matchup between pop culture warriors has powered TV shows, YouTube channels, and an endless number of nerdy arguments. Now, a new web series is taking its own crack at hypothetical combat scenarios between pop culture icons. It's called Slash/Up and it has a particular focus on horror movie characters. Slash/Up is the brainchild of Dead Pixel, a production company that previously adapted a crossover comic called Marvel Zombies Vs. The Army Of Darkness. The fan film was removed after a claim from Marvel, but that hasn't stopped Dead Pixel. Instead, they've returned with the first episode of Slash/Up which pits Terminator heroine Sarah Connor against Friday the 13th villain Jason Voorhees. Dead Pixel doesn't seem interested in turning Slash/Up into a blatant copy of Super Power Beat Down. Instead, they constructed an entire scene around their climactic battle, while additional segments before the scene »

It looks like director Sam Raimi will be moving in a very different direction of filmmaking than what we are used to seeing him do. Over the years he's given us films such as Evil Dead, Darkman, Army of Darkness, Spider-Man, Drag Me to Hell, and his most recent film, Oz the Great and Powerful.
Deadline is now reporting that the director is in talks to helm an adaptation of a novel called Love May Fail, which was written by Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick. The script for this film was adapted by Mike White (School of Rock, Nacho Libre).
The story follows a character named Portia Kane, "who is coming off a demoralizing ending to her marriage to a cheating husband." While going through this, she "returns to her hometown determined to clear the name of her favorite English teacher, whose career was forcibly ended after a classroom scandal. »

Sam Raimi may have found his next project and it will be in a genre he hasn't worked in for some time. Sony is in talks with the Spider-man and Army Of Darkness director to helm the adaptation of Matthew Quick's novel Love May Fail. Quick is best known for his book Silver Linings Playbook which was adapted into David O. Russell's award-winning feature starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. Love May Fail will return Raimi to the real of drama and romance, one he last visited in the »

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.

Because some Hollywood movies feature titles with idioms or complicated phrases that won't market well in foreign territories, it's not uncommon for film's names to be changed when reels get sent overseas. This is why Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness was called Captain Supermarket in Japan and Woody Allen's Annie Hall was sold as Urban Neurotic in Germany (which is actually kind of an improvement). These funny cases pop up every so often, but thanks to China and Marvel Studios I think we now have a winner for 2014. The blog The Chinese Pod has done an interesting Mandarin breakdown of James Gunn's interstellar adventure Guardians of the Galaxy, and in doing so has uncovered the incredible hilarious and bizarre literally translated title that the film had when it was released in China. According to the site, the title on this poster: translates to "Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team. »
In what was surely a first in the annals of motion-picture marketing, an early ad for “Left Behind” featured a quote taken not from a film critic, but rather from Satan himself, who allegedly quipped, “Please do not bring unbelievers to this movie.” This presents a rare scenario in which Christian moviegoers ought to feel perfectly secure heeding the advice of the Devil, as this faith-based thriller is likely to inspire far more dorm-room drinking games than religious conversions. With a “Sharknado”-inspired visual style and a deeply weary lead performance from Nicolas Cage, “Left Behind” is cheap-looking, overwrought kitsch of the most unintentionally hilarious order, its eschatological bent representing its only real shot at box office redemption. The film hits theaters this weekend, but as for when believers can expect to see the tenets of their faith reflected with any sort of sophistication or intelligence in a mainstream genre film, »

Here's a cool set of digital Star Wars vinyl caricatures that were created by Evil Corp. I've included a few other figures that pay tribute to other movies like The Shining, An American Werewolf in London, Spinal Tap, and Army of Darkness. You can check them all out below! In case you missed them, you can find some other figurines for Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End that we posted a few weeks ago right here.

The prolific writer will be working on the Evil Dead sequel spinoff with long-time series artist Larry Watts.
"Ash is kind of the ultimate screwball knucklehead, and he really has no business being the 'Chosen One' in the battle against ultimate darkness," said Bunn. "That's what makes him such a compelling underdog,
"With this new series, we're taking the 'fish out of water' storyline to the next level, because not only is Ash fighting the Deadites, he's doing so in the depths of space.
"With such a strange set-up, it might be easy to think that this is a big departure from what we've seen before, but my goal has been to make »
Some prefer Mia’s fight with the Abomination under a blood rain downpour. Others like watching Ash shoot at his hand or seeing him take on Deadites in 1300 Ad. And there are those who enjoy the discovery of the Naturon Demonto, aka Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, by a group of college students.

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new. »
On August 24th, a beautiful Sunday evening, a line formed outside of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The crowd was full of diverse characters, but we all had one thing in common: we have a strong love of horror, and music. So there I was, about to enter Johnny Ramones 10th Anniversary Tribute, and I was ready to enjoy a memorable experience.
For those who are not familiar with the venue, it is actually a cemetery. It is also the final resting place of many celebrities, including Johnny Ramone himself. Often there are movie screenings there, and you are allowed to view the film picnic style, with blankets, chairs, and coolers. In other words, it’s a really cool way to watch a movie.
Soon after everyone entered the premises, many claimed seats on the lawn, and others ventured into the mausoleum to observe some very awesome horror goodies from the »
There may be no other genre of film that juggles trends as often and openly as horror. One decade it’s the slasher; one decade it’s the ghost story; the next it’s found footage. The door does and will continue to revolve. That’s not going to change.
Fortunately for fans of this diabolical branch of celluloid, every now and then those shifts come on the heels of a landscape-altering production or the birth of a franchise destined to change the way we view film. We’ve seen movies evolve so much in the last 80-plus years it’s insane.
It’s almost hard to grasp, but it happens. And it often takes career-defining projects and game-changing films to make the shift a reality. Here are 15 horror franchises that enhanced or completely altered the face of horror as we know it.

“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 »

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.

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. Randy Ortiz's poster for Evil Dead II (variant on the right): Richey Beckett's poster for Army of Darkness (variant on the right): Tom Whalen's poster for Army of Darkness (variant on the right): My favorite is probably Tom Whalen's, »
