We haven’t heard very much of Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell’s ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’ Starz revival since its inception, but the groovy one-time S-Mart stockboy won’t be alone in his new fight. Two new stars have joined the battle of ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead,’ and both of them will hail to the king, baby.

Remake. Reboot. Reimagining. All of these words we use to describe taking an old property and making it new again. Well now you can add “recalibration” to the list of the creative ways people try to explain what is, essentially, a remake. The writing team behind four of the seven ‘Saw’ films, as well as ‘The Collector’ and its sequel, have been brought on for a new installment in the classic ‘Halloween’ franchise, and they’re doing what they like to call a “recalibration” of the property—whatever that means.
This Friday will see NBC airing the last of its initial 13-episode ‘Constantine’ order, certainly a worrying notion for those concerned by the network’s recent exclusion of the DC drama among multiple renewals. There may yet be hope for ‘Constantine’ however, as NBC is reportedly considering moving a second season to Syfy, and allowing a bit more creative freedom.

Nicolas Winding Refn’s next film already had us stoked—a female-driven horror film set in Hollywood from the director of ‘Drive’ and ‘Only God Forgives’ already sounds pretty amazing, but apparently it gets even better: the film has just added ‘Mad Men’'s Christina Hendricks and everyone’s current favorite badass, Keanu Reeves.
Director Adam Wingard and his screenwriting partner Simon Barrett have yet to disappoint us—from the fantastic, subversive horror thriller ‘You’re Next’ to the throwback action flick ‘The Guest,’ the duo have been consistently delivering in the genre film department. Next up, the pair will head back to horror for the upcoming film ‘The Woods.’
The original 1984 ‘Poltergeist’ is one of the best horror films ever made. With its PG rating, it’s also one of the great Trojan Horses of genre cinema. Parents show it to their kids, thinking it will be a a little scary but totally family-friendly experience, only to realize too late (usually around the point where the guy hallucinates his face being torn off) that the movie means business. So, when we dive into the first look at the upcoming ‘Poltergeist’ remake, we do so with the skepticism of people who think the original masterpiece holds up as well today as it did over 30 years ago.
‘The Walking Dead‘ season 5 will pick up after 2014′s grim “Coda” in just a few days time, but who can stand to wait for fresh footage to shuffle out, when Rick Grimes remains such a man of action? Find out where the survivors head next with our first official clip from Sunday’s 2015 premiere ‘What Happened, and What’s Going On!”
