‘Evil Dead II’: A Brief Guide To The Sequel To The Ultimate Experience In Grueling Terror
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Evil Dead II

There is really no clear reason for me to write an article about Sam Raimi‘s 1987 comic horror blast Evil Dead II. It’s not celebrating an anniversary (though it did turn 25 in 2011) and no one involved in its making is preparing to do anything major in pop culture. I suppose I’m writing this in order to give myself license to regurgitate the insurmountable wealth of trivia regarding this film, which I share with the the guys at Championship Vinyl as my favorite of all time, that the disturbing level of admiration I have for it has compelled me to compile within the unguarded storage unit of my mind in the 18 years since I first watched it on a rental VHS I procured from a neighborhood video store.

Here now I present to you a compact yet nearly complete guide to Evil Dead II featuring some fascinating factoids and stories that you may or may not have already known, which all naturally depends on whether or not your love for the sequel to the ultimate experience in grueling terror runs as deeply in your soul as mine does. Bear with me, ladies and germs, for I am about to get even geekier than normally allowed at Geeks of Doom.

Black Metal Friday: “Halloween” by King Diamond
Ides Bergen   |  

King Diamond Circa 2014

When serendipity drops Halloween on a Black Metal Friday in your lap, how can you help but think of the song “Halloween”?

King Diamond, both with Mercyful Fate and his own eponymous solo band, helped form both the black metal and thrash genres. Kim Bendix Petersen, the man behind the King Diamond persona, was one of the first true Satanists in heavy metal. Many acts had previously used occult imagery and satanism in a somewhat cartoonish fashion, but the King walked the walk and talked the talk. He has been very open about being a devout follower of Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan. All of this lent a certain authenticity to King Diamond’s macabre, occult-fueled imagery and stage show — a show that I have the great fortune of witnessing tonight at The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. Look for my coverage of that event right here on Geeks of Doom.

Meanwhile, in the spirit of the day, here is King Diamond from his first solo album, 1986′s Fatal Portrait with the track “Halloween.”

Disney In Depth: ‘Maleficent’ Blu-ray Review

Disney In Depth banner

Maleficent
2-Disc Blu-ray l DVD l Digital HD
Directed by Robert Stromberg
Starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Brenton Thwaites
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: Nov 4, 2014

Disney’s unexpected summer blockbuster that grossed more than $750 million worldwide arrives for its home release. Maleficent, the live-action retelling of the Sleeping Beauty tale from the perspective of the evil fairy, may offer more visual spectacle than storytelling substance, but it’s far from cursed. The Blu-ray debut of Maleficent soars as an overall presentation, albeit blighted when evaluating its individual parts.

Thrashback Thursday: “Bring The Noise” By Anthrax With Public Enemy
Ides Bergen   |  

Antrax and Public Enemy

Bring the Noise” was originally done by Public Enemy and first appeared on the soundtrack to the 1987 film Less Than Zero. It was also the first single from the band’s 1988 album It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back.

After New York thrash band Anthrax displayed their appreciation for Public Enemy by wearing the group’s T-shirts onstage, Chuck D and Flor Flav agreed to appear on their cover of the song, thus creating the genre of rap-metal. The collaboration appeared on both Anthrax’s Attack of the Killer B’s and Public Enemy’s Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black.

Here with the official video for their collaborative cover are Anthrax and Public Enemy with “Bring The Noise.”
