Sam Raimi was on hand at Comic-Con 2014 today for the Screen Gems panel, where he discussed his involvement in the upcoming adaptation of the 'Last of Us' video game. But that's not all he discussed: seems like Raimi isn't quite done with 'Evil Dead,' the film franchise that kickstarted his career. While we won't be seeing another Raimi-directed 'Evil Dead' film anytime soon, we will be seeing more 'Evil Dead' ... on the small screen.
This is not a list of the best movies of 2013. This is simply a list of the best posters. Some represent their movie perfectly. Some actually sell a better, more different movie. But out of the hundreds of one-sheets released this year, these are the 10 that we love the most.
At the SXSW premiere of the 'Evil Dead' remake, director Fede Alvarez told the hopped up crowd that Sony Pictures loved the film so much, he was already hard at work writing the sequel. And, when we spoke to producer Rob Tabert the next morning, he told us, "We would love for Fede to do ."
But, something changed between March and now as the current word is that 'Evil Dead 2' is "not going to happen."
Halloween is right around the corner, and if you're a movie fan, choosing your costume this year could be pretty tough. Will you go as Alien from 'Spring Breakers,' or make an old classic new again by dressing up as Carrie White from 'Carrie'? Don't worry -- we've done all the heavy lifting for you. Whether or you're a
When are we to be held accountable for the way we react to what's on screen, and how much of our reaction is to be blamed on the director's failure to communicate clearly? For this we look to the new 'Evil Dead,' 'Tyler Perry's Temptation,' 'The Host' and 'Spring Breakers' -- four very different movies, but all with something in common.
There are a million reasons why an 'Evil Dead' remake shouldn't work. So many, in fact, we won't even start listing them all here. And yet this 'Evil Dead' remake is still a success (read our 'Evil Dead' review here). How is that possible? And how did they do it without the help of CGI, which is far-too-prevalent in horror movies these days? We sat down with director Fede Alvarez, producer Rob Tabert and a guy you might have heard of named Bruce Campbell, to talk about remaking one of the most beloved horror movies of all time.
Star of the original 'Evil Dead' (and producer of this remake) had one thing to say to the new cast as they prepped to begin shooting: this is going to be miserable.
Between the prosthetics, the contact lenses, the running, the screaming, the getting vomited on...there were some long days on the 'Evil Dead' set for sure. We talk to the 'Evil Dead' cast in this exclusive video about the worst part about filming, what makes it all worth it and what they know about 'Evil Dead 2.'
"Let's hope this still works," says David (Shiloh Fernandez) as he puts a key into the door of his family's old cabin in the woods. But of course he's not just talking about the key; he's talking about the idea of remaking 'The Evil Dead,' the 1981 cult classic that launched the careers of writer/director Sam Raimi, producer Robert Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell and remains close to the hearts of discerning horror fans everywhere. Between the original film and its two sequels, 'Evil Dead II' and 'Army of Darkness,' Raimi, Tapert, and Campbell created one of the most iconic horror franchises of all time. But that was thirty years ago. Times change; tastes change. And in the interim, 'Evil Dead' has been ripped off by so many other movies its plot smells about as fresh as a fruit cellar full of rotting cat corpses. Forget hoping it still works; you'd need the mother of all prayers, and maybe a blood sacrifice or two, to make an 'Evil Dead' remake click.
This is an idea so nutty that we're not even sure it's possible: what if the upcoming 'Evil Dead' remake is actually a sequel to the original film and is heading toward a crossover with the "old" films for 'Evil Dead 7,' which will see Bruce Campbell's Ash, fresh out of the recently announced 'Army of Darkness 2,' teaming up with the new characters? If you're not a horror fan, that surely reads like gibberish. If you are a horror fan, your brain may have just exploded.
