Ash is back: protector of humanity, true ladies’ man, slayer of deadites, S-Mart employee of the month. In 1981, director Sam Raimi and actor Bruce Campbell changed the face of horror with the schlocky, ugly and downright hilarious B-movie that is Evil Dead. Then they did it again, six years later, with the chaotic masterpiece that is Evil Dead II.

Frankenstein, but we haven't heard much about it since then. Last year, he started talking about it again, though at the time, he said the script sucked. We asked Campbell if Bruce Vs. Frankenstein was still happening, and he revealed that he is still in the process of writing the script. He says:
