The Disused Fane: Never Meant for the World of the Living

Old Hag in Room 237 in The Shining

For my money, The Shining (1980) is the scariest movie ever made, and the book is frightening as well. There are numerous reasons for this, but one of the main ones is that damn woman in Room 237 (217 in the book). When Danny foolishly enters the room, the film cuts away, and later it is left ambiguous who put those marks on his neck. The film does this to heighten the psychological tension that results from Wendy's suspicion of Jack. The book, however, is pretty unambiguous. Danny sees a dead, decaying woman rising from the bathtub and stumbles away in terror; huddled against a wall, he closes his eyes and reminds himself that she will go away in a little while, like a dream, when he opens his eyes; and that ghosts, the residues left by the dead, can't actually hurt living people. And then fingers begin to close around his throat... (read more...)

The Terrophile: Love Shack of the Evil Dead (Fanvid)

Evil Dead poster

Sometimes when I'm coming up with my fanvids, I think of the movie or television series I want to work with, and then come up with a song. Sometimes I like of a song and try to find a fandom to vid it to. However, with my latest creation, the song and source came at the same time in a burst of inspiration: The B-52's "Love Shack" paired with The Evil Dead and Evil Dead II. In hindsight, it's an obvious pairing. However, the actual editing process was less obvious. From start to finish, this video was a year and a half in the making. I hope you enjoy it.

Ash Gets Groovy in "Evil Dead: Regeneration" Video Game

So a new Evil Dead game has been announced. That makes this the third time Ash (from the housewares section of S-Mart) will fight a horde of Deadites. When I first saw the news, I thought, "Oh, that's pretty cool." What I didn't know, at the time, however, is that the game also allows Ash the pleasure of teaming up with a 3-foot tall Deadite in an attempt to put a stop to Dr.(read more...)

Ash to Face Herbert West in Comic

There's been a couple Army of Darkness mini-series hitting comic stores within this past year which really have been not all that great due to the fact that they just kind of rehash famous dialouge and situations from the Evil Dead trilogy and bring not many new ideas to the table (and this is coming from someone who would buy and cherish a can of tuna if it had the Army of Darkness logo printed on it), but hopefully things will start to improve for the AoD comics, as t(read more...)

Raimi and Tapert on "Boogeyman", "Evil Dead", and More

"Evil Dead IV" Still a Possibility

Zap2It.com reports the following:

"When he's all finished with the Spider-Man franchise, director Sam Raimi thinks he'd like to go back to his horror roots and add to his Evil Dead series. 'I definitely want to do it and I think after -- whenever the Spider-Man jobs end -- I would love to dig in on that,' Raimi says. 'That's something I'm really looking forward to.'(read more...)

"Evil Dead": The Remake

Yet another classic horror film that is entirely unique and probably doesn't need any sort of remake is getting remade... and this time, at the behest of its original director. Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures is gearing up to remake The Evil Dead. Raimi will not direct the film himself, but is actively looking for a new person to take the helm. Although there's been no official casting, word has come down the pike that both Seann William Scott (American Pie) and Justin Theroux (Mulholland Drive) are strong contenders to replace Bruce Campbell as Ash.
