Interview With Bruce Campbell of ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’
Dr. Zaius   |  

Ash vs Evil Dead, Season 2 Episode 8

Who is Bruce Campbell? Seriously, this was a question I had to answer for my mother! Bruce Campbell is the King of the B-Actors, a true modern renaissance man. His IMDb page lists over a hundred credits. He’s a producer and director, as well as the author of a New York Times bestseller. But to fans around the world, the answer to the above question is simple: he’s Ash Williams, the chainsaw-handed lothario from the Evil Dead franchise. He’s also my favorite actor, someone I proudly waited 4 hours to meet at a horror convention, and whom I got to interview last year while on vacation with my family inside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando. That interview occurred over the phone in the quietest place I could find in a theme park known for loud attractions. A year later, lightning struck a second time. I was privileged to get to interview Mr. Bruce Campbell this month, and had time to discuss his upcoming book, as well as upcoming Season 3 of the Starz hit series Ash vs Evil Dead.

Check out the interview here below.

The Flash Justice League header image

Well, that was fast. We just learned that Sam Raimi was on a shortlist of potential directors to helm The Flash. Robert Zemeckis and Matthew Vaughn are also among the top names.

But just after that list was reported, word is that Raimi has taken himself out of the running. And that’s just the beginning. Another potential director we didn’t know about, Marc Webb, is also passing. It appears that Barry Allen will be without a father in the standalone film as well, as Billy Crudup has also dropped out. More on these stories below.

Robert Zemeckis, Matthew Vaughn, Sam Raimi In The Running To Direct ‘The Flash’

The Flash Starring Ezra Miller

Warner Bros. isn’t giving up on the cinematic version of The Flash. Though the Scarlett Speedster has only made two cameo appearances, with his first major one coming in Justice League, he has yet to appear in his own standalone film. After the studio had a falling out with Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa over creative differences, the studio went back to the drawing board, canned ditched Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s draft, and opted to use a script written by Joby Harold (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword).

Now WB is ready to find a director. It’s being reported that Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit), who had been previously rumored, is still in the running, while the studio has also had meetings with Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class, Kingsman) and Sam Raimi (Evil Dead and Spider-Man trilogies). More on the story below.

‘Ash vs. The Army of Darkness’ Comic Celebrates Film’s 25th Anniversary
Dr. Zaius   |  

Ash vs The Army of Darkness 00 Cover A Bradshaw banner

I think if you told Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell back in the late 70s that the uber low-budget horror film they were working on would still be relevant to pop culture four decades later, they would’ve probably turned the blood hose on you. But alas, the allure of Ashley J. Williams and is just too strong. Thirty-six years after the original Evil Dead film and 30 years after its classic sequel Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn, and 25 years after its ridiculous horror-comedy third installment Army of Darkness, Ash is still trucking along killing deadites and fighting the Necronomicon on Starz network’s Ash vs Evil Dead, which was renewed for a third season. Since 2004, Dynamite Entertainment has been the home of the Ash vs. The Army of Darkness comic book series, so in honor of Army Of Darkness‘s silver anniversary, Dynamite is releasing a special all-new series starting with a #0 issue at the “S–Mart Special” price of only $0.99.

Still Groovy: Happy 30th Birthday To ‘Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn’
Dr. Zaius   |  

Evil Dead II

In the late 70s a group of friends got together in Morristown, TN, to create the low-budget gorefest to end all low-budget gorefests, The Evil Dead. Released in 1981, the film became a cult classic on home video and suddenly people knew the names of Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and of course Bruce Campbell. Six years later, on a budget ten times that of the original, the gang returned to the cabin in the woods and outdid themselves, crafting a half remake/half sequel that broke genre conventions and turned a one-off cult film into a now 5-decade-old franchise. The film was Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn, and it was released in theaters 30 years ago this week. (It’s available now on Blu-ray.)

Spoilers below for the season finale of Ash vs Evil Dead

Oh what a strange trip it’s been! When season 2 of Ash vs Evil Dead started, Ash (Bruce Campbell) thought everything was peachy keen, holed up in his personal paradise, Jacksonville. Soon Ruby (Lucy Lawless) was calling for his and the Ghostbeaters’ help. Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) and Pablo (Ray Santiago) went along for the ride back to Ash’s hometown of Elk’s Grove, Michigan where Ash had to deal with both the new evils of Baal (Joel Tobeck), and a hometown that viewed him as a murderous pariah nicknamed Ashy Slashy. This season has provided some unforgettable moments. Ash’s trip up a butthole of a corpse… yeah, never thought I’d type that sentence. Ash’s reunion with his surly dad (Lee Majors), Pablo’s terrifying transformation into the Necronomicon, Kelly’s brawl with the Ashy Slashy puppet in the asylum… what a tremendous season!!! And of course, the saddest moment in the show’s short history, when Pablo was sliced in half and killed as he sent Baal back to Hell. Last week Ash forced Ruby to send them back in time to right before the original films, so Ash can destroy the book and prevent any bad stuff from happening. Of course, that is easier said than done and soon it’s an Evil Dead 2 redux as Ash battles Henrietta (Ted Raimi)…

Spoilers below for Ash vs Evil Dead

Last week on Ash vs Evil Dead: It’s hard to even type this… but Pablo (Ray Santiago) is dead. After Ash (Bruce Campbell) played Baal by acting all psycho-slasher last week, Pablo used the power of the Necronomicon that was inside him to banish Baal (Joel Tobeck) once and for all. But not before Baal let loose one last swipe with his raptor-like talon, slicing poor Pablo in half. I nearly cried at everyone’s reaction, especially Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) who went through another hellish episode. The range of emotions was crazy as she killed a teenage girl demon, confessed that killing to the girl’s mother, fought off the perverted puppet of Ashy Slashy, before having to watch her bestie and fellow Ghostbeater die a hero. I don’t know what AvED can do to top that episode, and frankly, I’m scared to find out how they try.

The Movie God   |  

Naughty Dog's The Last of Us

It’s been a while now since it was announced that a movie based on the hit video game The Last of Us was on the way, and that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was attached to star.

One of the producers on the project is none other than Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Spider-Man) through his production company Ghost House Pictures. Raimi was asked this week where things stood on The Last of Us, and thankfully he was able to at least give us an idea of the current status. You can see what he had to say below.

Last week’s Ash vs Evil Dead saw the epic return of sister Cheryl (Ellen Sandweiss) and she was conjured through Pablo’s Necronomicon-scarred body. With Ash (Bruce Campbell) and the gang trapped in his old house, and an angry mob outside, Ash is forced to battle Cheryl again, while Ruby (Lucy Lawless) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) try to help Pablo (Ray Santiago), who is being ripped apart physically and mentally. When Ash finally kills Cheryl in spectacular class Evil Dead fashion, the townsfolk realize he may not having been full of crap about the whole demon thing, but before he can celebrate, Baal (Joel Tobeck) knocks him out.

Spoilers below for Ash vs Evil Dead

Last week we met Baal (Jeff Tobeck), the father of the demon spawn that Ash (Bruce Campbell) and the gang have been battling since last season. Baal has a knack for hiding in other people’s skin… literally. After getting arrested by his old rival, Sheriff Emery (Stephen Lovatt), everyone converges at the jail. Ash’s compatriots, Ruby (Lucy Lawless), Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo), and Pablo (Ray Santiago) are joined by the Sheriff’s family, Linda (Michelle Hurd), who happens to also be Ash’s old flame, and their daughter Lacey (Pepi Sonuga). Baal messes with their minds before Ash and Ruby team up to shred a deadite in typical graphic fashion. The real story though is poor Pablo. His body is turning against him, his skin becoming the Necronomicon… although that may be what’s necessary to inevitably defeat Baal.
