Ten Best Horror Comedies to Haunt You Over the Holidays

19 December 2011 12:16 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The horror-comedy. Perhaps the most difficult sub-genre of film to perfect. Most attempts at horror-comedy don't come off well. Either they're too scary without enough comedy or (more frequently) mostly humor with not enough horror. A lot of times they just come across as trying too hard and cheesy. But every once in a while a movie gets it just right. And when that happens, audiences embrace and celebrate the brilliant and elusive successful horror-comedy.

That being said, in celebration of the upcoming release of Trent Haaga's Chop, we did our best to put together a list of 10 horror-comedies (in no particular order) that we feel are the most impressive efforts in the field. Wocka, wocka, wocka!

Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil (2011)

We've seen quite a few attempts at horror-comedy over the past few years, but recently none has been better than Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil. Starring Alan Tudyk »

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: A Tribute to Bruce Campbell

15 December 2011 1:07 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"This is my boomstick!" Bruce Campbell was already a full-fledged horror icon before reciting that unforgettable line from Army of Darkness, but this put the cherry on top. "Boomstick" was Campbell's "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", his "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", his "Stairway to Heaven".

Here at Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel column, we're used to paying tribute to the real baddies of horror. The nastier character you portrayed, the more love you'll get here. Campbell is the rare Scalpel honoree who's recognized for his portrayal of a hero. Throughout his illustrious career Campbell has appeared in dozens of movies and television shows, but it's one character in particular that we all fell in love with that earned Campbell his Tip of the Scalpel nod. I'm talking, of course, of Ashley J. "Ash" Williams.

Campbell and The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi met in high school, and »

In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds (2011) Movie Review

13 December 2011 1:23 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

When I learned that Dolph Lundgren was teaming up with controversial Z-grade director Uwe Boll, I was stunned. After the success of “The Expendables”, as well as his relatively well-received direct-to-video efforts, I was shocked that Lundgren would find himself starring in a motion picture directed by the same humanoid who fashioned such memorable cinematic gems as “Alone in the Dark” and “Far Cry”. Did he need the paycheck? Was the script a good read? It’s anybody’s guess, really. Despite my skepticism, I approached the project with an open mind. After all, even if Boll was behind the camera, the awe-inspiring presence of the Dolph should, in theory, overpower any of the production’s wonky moments. So much for being optimistic. “In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds” is a failure. It’s a cheap, Renaissance Fair-scented action flick that borrows heavily from the illustrious Tome »

Spoilery ‘The Evil Dead’ Remake Details

9 December 2011 7:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Ghost House Pictures, the company run by Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert, is getting ready to shoot a remake of The Evil Dead down in New Zealand, with Fede Alvarez directing from a script he co-wrote. (And one that Diablo Cody revised.) We know that the basics of the story are much like those of Raimi's original The Evil Dead: five young friends go to a remote cabin for a weekend where they are besieged by a supernatural evil. We've had a few details, too, about how this version will differ from the original. I won't recount those above the jump for the spoiler-averse. Along with a repeat of those details below, we've got a report that includes a lot more information about the film. This is also potentially very spoilerish stuff, and it will show just how different the new Evil Dead will be. Put it this way: »

The Remake of Evil Dead Hits Theaters on April 12, 2013

8 December 2011 12:44 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony Pictures has set the remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 horror film Evil Dead (or "The Evil Dead" if you want to be Ocd about it) for April 12, 2013.  The original movie centered on five twenty-somethings who headed up to stay in a cabin in the woods (the worst place anyone on Earth can ever be) only to be met with the horrors wrought forth from the Necronomicon (the Book of the Dead).  The movie spawned the sequels Evil Dead II (considered to be the best in the franchise) and the goofy horror-action film Army of Darkness, all starring groovy chainsaw-wielding protagonist Ash (Bruce Campbell).  Newcomer Fede Alvarez was brought on board to direct the remake after Raimi and producing partner Rob Tapert were impressed by his short film "Panic Attack".  Diablo Cody was then hired to revise Alvarez' original script.  Last month, Cody told Steve that the remake would be »

Dynamite Entertainment's "Army of Darkness" is Going Serial! A Comic Book Preview

7 December 2011 4:00 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Thinking about next year already? Dynamite Entertainment's success with its Army of Darkness (AoD) license is going to get a regular series starting February 2012. This series will come out after "Danger Girl and the Army of Darkness" graphic novel releases mid January.

Writer Elliott Serrano (from the previous AoD releases) and artist Marat Mychaels ("Youngblood" and "Demonslayer") will provide an ongoing saga that promises to be a new chapter. As the evil of the Necronomicon spreads across the cosmos, a new ally in the war against the Deadites emerges. There is a woman going by the name of "Ash," and readers may very well ask what her relation is with the real "Chosen One?" Is Ashley J. Williams going to have competition? They will be answered in due time, as our accidental hero travels deep into a pyramid of Ancient Egypt in a parallel dimension in the first tale.

Evil Dead Remake to Start Shooting in New Zealand Next March

6 December 2011 1:30 PM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The 1981 independent horror movie, The Evil Dead, started with a group of novice movie-makers heading out to a cabin in the woods near Morristown, Tennessee, to make a low-budget movie about a group of college students who spend a weekend in a cabin. They find a book called The Book of the Dead and it unleashes demonic spirits on the group. The movie was initially ignored in the U.S., but would eventually launch the careers of director Sam Raimi (the Spider-Man trilogy), actor Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) and producer Robert Tapert (30 Days of Night), all of whom also worked on the sequels — 1987's Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn and 1992's Army of Darkness.

The trio will reunite to produce the upcoming Evil Dead remake which has a less humble beginning, sporting a director from Uruguay (newcomer Federico "Fede" Alvarez), a script rewritten by an Academy Award–winner (Diablo Cody, »

The Evil Dead Remake and What to Expect from Producers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell

2 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

The Evil Dead is getting a remake, and not all fans are going to be happy. Even though Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell are endorsing this project as producers. Their motives lie beyond the obvious dollar signs and giving a new life to a 28-year old product.

Amy Pascal and Jeff Blake at Sony and Peter Schlessel at FilmDistrict have always been incredible partners who share our passion for great storytelling as well as our obsession for scaring the pants off the audience,” Tapert told Fangoria.

Even more saddening is the fact that Ash is no longer a character in this reimagining—he is the glue that tried to keep the gang together throughout the first two films when the Necronomicon, a book that can do more than just resurrect the dead, is discovered. Legions of undead want the book back. In Army of Darkness, the book is »

Fourth Evil Dead One Step Closer to Production

1 December 2011 1:16 PM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The fourth movie in the cult horror movie series that began in 1981 with writer-director Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead has found a distributor. The horror pic, which will go into production next year under the direction of independent filmmaker Federico "Fede" Alvarez of Uruguay, will be distributed in North America and throughout the world (save France and the U.K.) by Sony Pictures. This makes it the fourth distributor in the franchise's history — New Line distributed The Evil Dead, Paramount Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn and Universal Army of Darkness, aka Evil Dead III. Raimi, original Evil Dead producer Robert Tapert and Bruce Campbell, who starred in the first three movies as "Ash" Williams, are producing the Evil Dead remake.

"The Evil Dead" remake finds a distributor

1 December 2011 9:55 AM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

No need to fear, "The Evil Dead" fans, because Sony is here. Fede Alvarez's upcoming remake of Sam Raimi's cult classic just got picked up by Sony Pictures in partnership with Raimi's Ghost House Pictures to distribute the movie. That means that, yes, "The Evil Dead" remake will be crawling its way into theaters come some point during or after 2013.

Variety has the news, saying that the remake is set to begin production next year. It will be the first time an "Evil Dead" film has hit the big screen since 1992's "Army of Darkness."

Written by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues with revisions by Diablo Cody, the new "Evil Dead" film follows five friends holed up in a remote cabin and end up finding the Book of the Dead. It unleashes a demonic force, taking each of them over until only one is left to fight for his or her life. »

'The Evil Dead' Reboot is Finally Happening, Courtesy of FilmDistrict

30 November 2011 12:12 PM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

After several years of talking, the Sam Raimi-Rob Tapert remake of The Evil Dead is moving forward with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions and FilmDistrict partnering with Ghost House Pictures on a worldwide deal for Sony Pictures to distribute. We broke the news on the remake in July, tapping Fede Alvarez to write and direct Ghost House Pictures' remake of their seminal 1981 cult horror film The Evil Dead. The remake is on track for a production start next year. Alvarez wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues and Juno/Jennifer's Body writer Diablo Cody did revisions on the draft. The story centers on five friends holed up at a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead with a demonic force unleashed possessing each until only one is left to fight for survival. As we exclusively reported, there is a drug subplot. The franchise had ended with 1992's Army of Darkness. »

'Evil Dead' remake to be unleashed by Sony Pictures

Those lovely demons from the remake of the cult classic Evil Dead have found a home. Sony Pictures announced today it will distribute the film, in partnership with FilmDistrict and production company Ghost House Pictures.

Director Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert, and actor Bruce Campbell announced in July that they are producing a remake of their 1981 gore-tastic horror film, about a group of teenagers staying in a remote cabin in the woods who accidentally resurrect a horde of demons, thanks to a book of the dead known as the Necronomicon.

Evil Dead Remake to be "Grounded in Reality" Says Diablo Cody

30 November 2011 6:44 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

There hasn't been much for fans to be happy about when it comes to the upcoming remake of 1981's The Evil Dead . Sure, director Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell will be on hand to produce, but as Campbell has already revealed, the remake won't include his signature character, Ashley "Ash" Williams, who returned for more in 1987's Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn and 1992's Army of Darkness. Furthermore, the plot, following the original closely, only adds a drug addicted character who reportedly "becomes insane and difficult to control [without drugs], which makes it impossible to see that she's actually possessed". That "twist" hasn't been warmly received by fans.

It's not all that bad, according to Academy Award–winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno), who is rewriting the script by newcomer director Fede Alvarez and his screenwriting partner Rodo Sayagues. In an interview with MTV, Cody said that the Evil Dead remake »

MoreHorror Exclusive Interview with World Famous Special Effects Artist Greg Nicotero

by Michael Pickle, MoreHorror.com

For all our MoreHorror readers recovering from the tryptophan induced stupor we call Thanksgiving, boy do we have a treat for you. What better way to celebrate the recent release of the Evil Dead II: 25th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray than to talk to the man behind the special effects and some of the most amazing visuals in horror movie history: the legendary Greg Nicotero.

If you've seen little productions like Day of the Dead, In the Mouth of Madness, From Dusk 'Til Dawn, Scream, The Cell, Masters of Horror, The Mist and most recently The Walking Dead than you are very familiar with his enormous body of work. I was fortunate enough to chat with the man who literally changed the face of horror before he had to run off to celebrate turkey day.
