‘Ash vs. Evil Dead 3×07: Twist and Shout’ Review

With this season of Ash vs Evil Dead, I have constantly worried that there would be a plot point which would constantly be returned to, and that is the trust that Ash’s (Bruce Campbell) daughter has in him. This week we see my worries confirmed, that we’d go straight back to this theme. The question is does it ruin the story, or does it handle it better than expected.

Brandy (Arielle Carver-o’Neill) decides that she wants to go to the school dance and knowing that Ruby (Lucy Lawless) will be there, Ash decides to go too. With Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) to protect Brandy, Ash finds himself fighting the evil version of himself to protect Brandy. Pablo (Ray Santiago) makes a discovery about the Rift that reveals to him that Kelly is not all she seems.

With the real Kelly stuck beyond the Rift we know that Brandy is in danger,

‘Ash vs. Evil Dead 3×06: Tales From the Rift’ Review

If there is one thing that I’ve wondered about the third season of Ash vs Evil Dead, it has to be the question of just what is going on? We see plenty of action, plenty of details on Ruby’s (Lucy Lawless) plans, but no firm path for the season. The question is, will we get it this week..?

Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) finally loses it and goes after Ruby, putting herself in a dangerous situation. Ash (Bruce Campbell) meanwhile finds himself stuck with another group of the Knights of Sumeria who enlist him and Pablo (Ray Santiago) on a quest to open a rift to the world of the dead.

If previous episodes in the third season of Ash vs Evil Dead have been about building up a story, this week the focus is on action. This is where we see the show doing what it does best, especially

‘Ash vs. Evil Dead 3×05: Baby Proof’ Review

In horror there is certain territory that is hard to encroach on, and children is one of them. This week Ash vs Evil Dead brings a toddler into the horror in a way that is shockingly good and brings back memories of Army of Darkness.

While Ash (Bruce Campbell) is dealing with the baby from hell, Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) and Brandy (Arielle Carver-o’Neill) deal with the possessed Pablo (Ray Santiago). While all seems lost, it is only when Pablo accepts his destiny that the tide starts to turn against Ruby (Lucy Lawless) and her demonic plans.

The fight with Ash vs the toddler from hell at first feels risky, but one that first reluctance to see a child in that type of scene subsides, it becomes more fun. It is obvious of course that there are many tricks used to making it appear that the child is in the scene,

Bruce Campbell says we could get Evil Dead 4 if Ash vs Evil Dead isn’t renewed

For a while back in 2013, it seemed as though we might get the long-rumoured fourth instalment in the original Evil Dead series, with Sam Raimi revealing that he was planning on developing a script for Army of Darkness 2.

While the movie never materialised, we did get to see Raimi returning to the series – and Bruce Campbell returning to his role as Ash – for the TV series Ash vs Evil Dead, and speaking to EW to promote the third season, Campbell has hinted that Evil Dead 4 could be revived if the show isn’t renewed by Starz.

“We won’t know till the middle of March,” said Campbell when asked about a potential season four renewal. “We’re in the horrible television limbo right now. We’re going to see what the TV gods have in store for us. We’re ready either way. If they take us off the air,

Evil Dead 4 May Happen If Ash Vs Evil Dead Gets Canceled

Evil Dead 4 May Happen If Ash Vs Evil Dead Gets Canceled
Could another Evil Dead movie happen? It's important not to get too ahead of ourselves, but according to Bruce Campbell, there's a way in which such a thing could. Currently, Ash vs Evil Dead is airing its third season on Starz, but there's no certainty that the series will continue beyond season 3. That being the case, Campbell reveals that Evil Dead 4, sometimes referred to as Army of Darkness 2, could be in the cards if Starz doesn't give the green light to Ash Vs. Evil Dead season 4.

Ash vs Evil Dead is very much in the same spirit as the third Evil Dead movie, Army of Darkness, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. And TV seems to be a very good home for Ash and the world of Evil Dead. That said, ratings are important and Starz may not feel that doing Ash vs Evil Dead season 4 is ultimately worth it.

Bruce Campbell Says If Ash Vs. Evil Dead Gets Cancelled They Might Make Another Movie

Fans seem to be loving Ash Vs. Evil Dead, I know I am! It's been amazing to see them push the boundaries as they continue telling the story of Ash and his battle with the deadites. They've done some insanely crazy shit in this series and it's been extremely entertaining.

I hope this series doesn't end anytime soon, but if it does, there's a good chance that we might actually see director Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell make another movie. During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly as he is talking about Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 3, he's asked about the possibility of Season 4 and he replied:

"We won’t know till the middle of March. We’re in the horrible television limbo right now."

He's then asked if we will ever see another Evil Dead movie and in regards to that, he says:

Bruce Campbell Says Another Film Is Possible If Ash Vs. Evil Dead Ends

Even with Ash vs. Evil Dead still kicking all kinds of ass, one can never be too sure of the longevity of any given series. Really, decisions regarding renewals and cancellations are ultimately up to the networks themselves, so all we the viewers can ever do is to keep on watching and hope for the best.

Still, even with serialized formats allowing for broader storytelling and more character development, fans clamor for a fourth entry set in the original Evil Dead timeline of films. In fact, the demand has been there since after Army of Darkness had its run, but nothing ever came to fruition.

The possibility for another theatrical outing exists, though, but it’s contingent on the fate of the currently running series. For more on that front, check out what Bruce Campbell had to say in a recent discussion with Entertainment Weekly:

“We won’t know [if we’ve been renewed] till the middle of March.

Could Freddy Vs Jason Vs Ash Happen on Ash Vs Evil Dead? Bruce Campbell Speaks

Could Freddy Vs Jason Vs Ash Happen on Ash Vs Evil Dead? Bruce Campbell Speaks
Believe it or not, Ash Vs Freddy Vs Jason is a movie that almost happened. It was supposed to be New Line's follow-up to the extremely successful Freddy Vs Jason movie that came out in 2003. And it would have brought Bruce Campbell's iconic Ash character back to the big screen for the first time since 1993's Army of Darkness. Alas, it was not meant to be, and Ash wouldn't return until 2015, when Starz premiered the hit horror series Ash Vs. Evil Dead. Now, with the Season 3 premiere on the horizon for this Sunday, we wondered if there was any chance Freddy and Jason might actually pop up on the show sometime in the future.

To celebrate the debut of Ash Vs Evil Dead Season 3, we caught up with Bruce Campbell, to chat about all the secrets and surprises that are in story for Ashley Williams and his gang of Deadite hunters.

Bruce Campbell Says Stephen King Is Directly Responsible For Evil Dead II

As Ash Vs. Evil Dead heads into its third season (our review here), star Bruce Campbell has been heard in reflective mood, speaking to various outlets on the promotional circuit. In recent conversation with Consequence Of Sound, however, he revealed a very specific snippet of information about the production of Evil Dead II – and how it actually only happened because of Stephen King.

It’s now the stuff of legend that the reaction quote most often cited for Evil Dead came from Stephen King himself, calling it “the most ferociously original horror film of the year,” when it was released in 1981. Now, we learn that his direct influence on the franchise did not stop at mere fandom.

“He’s responsible for two of The Evil Dead movies, not just one,” said Campbell. “The second one is much more obscure. He’s obviously quoted for the first Evil Dead, he saw

Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 3 Review

Five episodes were provided for review.

When Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell first worked together on The Evil Dead, no one could have anticipated that this 1981 splatter-fest would snowball into not only a cult classic but one of the pillars of modern horror cinema. For decades after the trilogy’s final installment in 1992’s Army of Darkness, fans clamored for more of Campbell’s buffoonish badass Ashley J. Williams. After Raimi and Campbell helped shepherd director Fede Alvarez’s 2013 reboot/remake, hopes for more of their original vision seemed bleak. Then Ash vs. Evil Dead happened.

Since 2015, Campbell has reprised his titular role for the Starz series, giving an older but decidedly not wiser Ash a whole mess of gory shenanigans to get into. Now returning for season 3, the series complicates matters further, introducing a teenage daughter (Arielle Carver-o’Neill) Ash has never met and forcing him to become the reluctant hero once again.

Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 3 Includes Biggest Deadite of All Time

Bruce Campbell says Ash will be battling the biggest Deadite of all time in Ash vs. Evil Dead season 3. Since the beginning, anyone even faintly familiar with director Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead trilogy or the first two seasons of the subsequent Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead well know that the bane of Ash Williams’ existence are the Deadites, a particularly nasty brand of humans or life-forces possessed by Kandarian demons. Ash (Campbell), of course, thought he’d vanquished evil completely by the conclusion of the third Evil Dead movie Army of Darkness, but following a night of partying 23 years later, he reawakened the Deadites after irresponsibly citing incantations from the Necronomicon, aka The Book of the Dead.

New Fan Edit Condenses The Entire Evil Dead Trilogy Into A 72 Minute Ballet Of Gore

With Ash vs. Evil Dead due to return to Starz in February, it feels like a fine time to take stock of The Evil Dead franchise. Though it now encompasses a TV show, a couple of video games, various comic book crossovers, a pretty good remake and a bunch of other multimedia projects, the roots of the franchise lie in Sam Raimi’s 1981 classic – the original ‘video nasty.’

Shot on a shoe-string budget and crammed full of dynamic camerawork and neat gore effects, the film was such a hit that it spawned two bigger budget sequels in the form of Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. Now, perhaps to amuse himself or to cater for those without much free time, Vimeo user Jorge Torres-Torres has recut the entire trilogy into Evil Dead Revision, which he describes as “a 72 minute, black & white ballet of gore.”

Constantin Film looking to launch Danger Girl movie and TV franchise

THR is reporting that Constantin Film is looking to bring the cult comic book series Danger Girl to the screen, having snapped up the rights to the series from creators J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell.

Constantin will team up with Jeremy Bolt’s Bolt Pictures and Adrian Askarieh’s Prime Universe Films to launch a potential film and TV franchise with female empowerment as the buzzword.

Danger Girl is the perfect opportunity to create a team of grounded, relatable and dangerous young female characters but with humor and spectacular action,” said Bolt.

Danger Girl launched in 1998 through Wildstorm, and followed the adventures of Abbey Chase, who is recruited into Danger Girl Freelance Operations Limited, a secret spy organisation who fights against the neo-Nazi group known as the Hammer Empire along with various other global threats.

The original Danger Girl miniseries spawned a host of further limited series and one-shots,

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Manster (1959)

I love wordplay, and portmanteaus are my favourite. Come on over and I’ll tell you about The Manster (1959), part man, part monster, all good B movie madness. Two-headed Americans abroad in Japan is a very specific sub-genre, and underappreciated at that.

Originally released in Japan in July but not released stateside until March of ’62, United Artist Japan’s production was filmed there, and they spared every expense by using the same cardboard sets, flimsy, sparse labs and restaged hotel rooms as their American counterparts. (Papier mache volcano included.) But the mix of Japanese, British, and American actors gives The Manster (Aka The Split) a distinct flavor beyond the two pronged noggin. Oh, and the eyeball in the shoulder. Have I mentioned the caged sister with the melting face?

Our film opens on that mountainside by that gurgling volcano at the secret lab of Dr. Robert Suzuki (Tetsu NakamuraThe Last Dinosaur

Watch Bruce Campbell Tame Snakes in Rare 1984 TV Commercial

Watch Bruce Campbell Tame Snakes in Rare 1984 TV Commercial
When The Evil Dead was released in 1981, it helped launched the careers of star Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi, but long before that club hit, the actor and star made a slew of short films with their high school friends Scott Spiegel and Bill Ward. These shorts were showcased with a new DVD set released in August called Super 8 Shorts, with a second volume just now being released. Along with 11 new short films, many of which have never been publicly released before, this set also features some of Bruce Campbell's early TV commercials, including one you can see below for a Michigan radio station from 1984, three years after the first Evil Dead movie. Here's a description of these DVD sets below, outlining some of the history behind these filmmakers.
