Bruce Campbell Gives Us a Tour of the New Ripley's Believe It or Not!

Aaron Sagers Jul 18, 2019

Bruce Campbell talks to us about taking over as the host of the new Ripley's Believe It or Not!

The king is back in the building, baby, and you won’t believe what Bruce Campbell is bringing to San Diego Comic-Con this year. Or will you?

The host and executive producer of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! on Travel Channel said he first began making the rounds at cons around 1988 but didn’t land at Sdcc until 15 or 20 years ago. Ever since, the man behind The Evil Dead’s Ash has reigned as con royalty, existing in a pantheon that includes the likes of Stan Lee and Kevin Smith (his 2005 panel/one-man show for Sky High is of special note in Sdcc history).

Now, Bruce returns to support Ripley’s with a Saturday panel in the Indigo Ballroom (4 pm Pt), with “Cyborg” Angel Giuffria, who possesses

The 10 Grooviest Quotes From Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead Trilogy

The 1980s had some highly-praised horror films, one of which was Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead. The film was released in 1981. The film is notorious for its excess gore, which was all done with practical effects. Being friends with Sam and Ted Raimi, Bruce Campbell was chosen for the role of Ash Williams, which has since become the most famous role of his career.

Ash returned in 1987 for Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn, the sequel Army of Darkness in 1992, as well as the TV show Ash vs. Evil Dead in 2015.

Are We Going to See a New Evil Dead Movie?

So let’s be fair and say that the Evil Dead reboot in 2013 wasn’t absolutely horrible since it did manage to invoke a great deal of terror and it included a few things that we all recognized from the original movies. But going ahead with another remake of The Evil Dead without giving enough consideration to making a sequel of the reboot seems like it would asking for trouble since quite honestly no matter what the critics said about the reboot it was worth the effort and it’d be great to see a sequel come from it rather than just

New Evil Dead Movie Could Happen, According to Sam Raimi

Joseph Baxter Jul 10, 2019

The Evil Dead franchise may just rise again, with Sam Raimi now teasing plans for a new movie.

Evil Dead might just rise from its shallow showbiz grave. The cult hit horror film franchise was essentially, well, dead after its fan-embraced TV series Ash vs. Evil Dead, was cancelled in 2018 after three seasons on Starz, and star Bruce Campbell’s announced retirement of his chainsaw-hand-wielding ghoul-gutter, Ash Williams. However, apropos to its premise, creator Sam Raimi is now teasing a quick rise from said grave in the form of a new movie.

A new Evil Dead project of some kind is in the works, confirms Raimi – the writer/director/producer of the franchise’s film trilogy and executive producer on Ash vs. Evil Dead – in an interview with Bloody Disgusting. Upon confirming Evil Dead movie revival plans with repertory creative partner, Robert Tapert, Raimi tells the outlet:

Sam Raimi Says Next ‘Evil Dead’ Movie Being Planned, Bruce Campbell’s Return Possible

Sam Raimi Says Next ‘Evil Dead’ Movie Being Planned, Bruce Campbell’s Return Possible
The “Evil Dead” franchise will return to the big screen if original director Sam Raimi gets his way. In a new interview with Bloody Disgusting to promote the monster movie “Crawl,” in which he serves as producer, Raimi said a new “Evil Dead” movie is currently in the early stages of development.

“I’d love to make another one,” Raimi said. “I don’t think TV is in its future but we’re talking about — Bruce [Campbell], Rob [Tapert] and myself — one or two different ways to go for the next movie. We’d like to make another ‘Evil Dead’ feature and in fact we’re working on some ideas right now.”

The ideas Raimi is currently mapping out for the next “Evil Dead” movie contain a wide range of possibilities based on where the franchise has gone since he released his cult classic “The Evil Dead” in 1981. The original film starred Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams,

Crawl Early Reactions Are In: Gory Alligator Thriller Delivers Big Time

Crawl Early Reactions Are In: Gory Alligator Thriller Delivers Big Time
The first reactions for Crawl are in! This movie feels like it's falling under the radar a bit in a summer full of big, glitzy blockbusters. But many of those blockbusters have tanked, or at the very least underperformed. Luckily, it sounds very much like we're in for something totally different this weekend and, if the first reactions are to be believed, horror lovers are in for a real treat.

Crawl, very simply, centers on a daughter and her father who are trapped during a hurricane when vicious alligators wind up trying to hunt them down. It's produced by the legendary Sam Raimi and directed by Alexandre Aja. That has apparently made for a winning combination. Moviefone's Drew Taylor had this to say on Twitter.

"Secret's out: #CrawlMovie is the horror movie of the summer, an ingeniously realized creature feature classic full of Alexandre Aja's patented combination of white

‘Stranger Things’ Season 3: All the Pop Culture References and Homages, Episode by Episode

‘Stranger Things’ Season 3: All the Pop Culture References and Homages, Episode by Episode
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for Season 3 of “Stranger Things,” including the finale.]

Another season of “Stranger Things” brings another slew of opportunities to drop pop culture references by avowed cinephiles, the Duffer Brothers. Set in 1985, Season 3 includes plenty of nods to the decade, in addition to various horror and sci-fi films that influenced the more monstrous elements from the Upside Down.

Here’s an episode-by-episode breakdown of all the references and homages in the third season, beyond the Eggo waffles and Dungeons & Dragons that fans already know and love. Unless the songs have particular significance to the story, they won’t be mentioned here but are included in this separate soundtrack post.

“Chapter One: Suzie, Do You Copy?” “War Games” (1983) – A popular trope in movies that involve high security or nuclear weapons, the real-life two-man rule (or two-keyed lock) shows up at the beginning of the Matthew Broderick hacker movie “War Games” when two soldiers are tasked

Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 Would’ve Included Mysterio And Black Cat

With Tom Holland in the oddly-smooth Spidey suit, this iteration of the iconic web-slinger is proving to be quite popular. In fact, Spider-Man: Far From Home is out this week, but the wall-crawler took quite some time to get to the point where he could take on Mysterio, the fish-bowl wearing special effects artist/evil mastermind. The original cinematic Spider-Man and his director, Sam Raimi, were almost ready to do just that in 2010 though, but then the movie was cancelled. What was this abandoned film to be about, though?

Well, according to a deep dive on the dead Sony franchise, done by the folks over at Screen Rant, Tobey McGuire’s web-head was to take on a combination of Mysterio, the Vulture (John Malkovich) and the Vultress (Anne Hathaway), who would change into Black Cat. Peter Parker and Mj would reconcile their relationship and mourn the loss of Harry Osborne.

American Horror Story: 1984 Sets Fall Premiere Date

American Horror Story: 1984 has been a mystery ever since the title and setting were first revealed to the public. While most of the details are still a secret, fans of the bone-chilling series now at least know when the long-awaited ninth season will hit their TV screens. The first episode of the slasher phenomenon’s newest chapter will air on September 18th. Time for viewers to mark their calendars!

Everyone involved with the production has been extremely tight-lipped about the upcoming batch of episodes. Emmy-winning actress Sarah Paulson has even claimed that she knows next to nothing about what’s going to happen. If the cornerstone of the franchise is still in the dark about the plot, then viewers are most definitely in for some big surprises.

The most anyone’s spoken about the new season is producer Tim Minear. He’s claimed that fans of ’80s horror are

‘The Cleaning Lady’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Alexis Kendra, Stelio Savante, Rachel Alig, Elizabeth Sandy, Mykayla Sohn, JoAnne McGrath, Keri Marrone | Written by Jon Knautz, Alexis Kendra | Directed by Jon Knautz

Based on the 2016 short of the same name (also written and directed by Jon Knautz), The Cleaning Lady follows a floundering love addict who forms a dangerous bond with her new domestic while trying to avoid her married lover. As Alice struggles to end her affair with a married man, she finds solace in Shelly, a reclusive burn victim who cleans Alice’s apartment. As their friendship grows, so does Shelly’s twisted obsession with Alice. When Shelly learns of Alice’s on-and-off affair, she takes matters into her own hands in order to cleanse Alice of her bad behavior.

Jon Knautz is, for me, one of the most fascinating writer/directors working in horror today. Knautz’s work often times feels like a love

Is Bruce Campbell Teasing Evil Dead’s Ash Williams For Mortal Kombat 11?

Mortal Kombat 11 developer NetherRealm Studios released a brand new trailer for its blood-soaked brawler over the weekend. Fans of the series have already been engaging in otherworldly combat since the game’s launch back in April, of course, meaning this latest gore-laden footage to arrive is all about Dlc. As promised prior to release, MK11 is to receive a considerable amount of post-launch support in the form of new characters, many of which will be guests from other franchises.

In regards to last week’s trailer, first gameplay for returning villain Shang Tsung was the primary focus, though it’s what came after that’s whipped fans into a frenzy of excitement. Both Sindel and Nightwolf will return alongside the aforementioned sorcerer, with three guest characters set to join them. The first of that latter trio was confirmed to be Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, though an air of mystery continues

American Horror Story: 1984 Producer Says Fans Of ’80s Horror Will Love It

The 1980s were a defining decade for the horror genre. Classics like A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Shining, Hellraiser, The Evil Dead and more all terrified audiences across the nation.

American Horror Story: 1984 Is Still A Mystery For Sarah Paulson

Details on American Horror Story: 1984, the ninth season in the long-running FX anthology, have so far been thin on the ground. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck’s series will likely premiere in the fall, and will be unique in not including Evan Peters in its cast. Another franchise mainstay who should be returning though, Sarah Paulson, was recently asked how much she knows about the new season.

Paulson was somewhat cagy, commenting: “I don’t really know the answer to that. I think… all I can say is I know the least about this season upcoming that I’ve known about any season.”

The actress also remarked that:

“Usually, I have more information at this point, and I’m bugging Ryan with questions. Right now, I don’t have a lot and yeah, I’m so busy with Ratched, it’s hard for me to think about anything beyond that.
