Evil Dead


Happy 50th, Ted Raimi!!

Ted Raimi--one of my favorite actors of all time--turned 50 this week, and I took a stroll down memory lane to revisit some of my favorite roles of his. While his older brother Sam often gets the spotlight for directing movies like Evil Dead and Spider-Man, at least some of his success should be attributed to the awesomeness that Ted Raimi brings to his brother's projects. Take Evil Dead 2, for example. Ted played the wonderfully disgusting Henrietta, wearing a cumbersome latex suit. Henrietta has some of the best scenes in the entire movie, including the fight[...]


Spoiler-Free Review: ASH VS. EVIL DEAD–Episode 01

  I have seen the premiere of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, and it is glorious. Before we get into that thought, allow me to set the scene. I attended New York Comic Con this past weekend, and ASH. VS. EVIL DEAD pretty much ruled the entire show. Smack dab in the middle of the front lot was an exhibit that allowed fans to go into the trailer that Ash lives in on the new show. On Saturday at 3pm, over a thousand EVIL DEAD fans filed into the historic Hammerstein Ballroom for the ASH VS. EVIL DEAD panel. Moderated by Kevin Smith, the panel featured the cast of the[...]

Annie Knowby Battles the Evil Dead in Beyond Dead by Dawn

Most horror fans are intimately familiar with Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead series, and those that aren’t soon will be with the upcoming Ash Vs. Evil Dead TV series. Evil Dead is about to become huge again, and that’s great news for fans of Bruce Campbell, the Deadites and horror fans everywhere. Over the years, Evil Dead and its two sequels have been adapted and expanded into other mediums. There have been video games, comic book series, and even a musical. While some of these were straight adaptations of the source material, the ones that I’ve enjoyed the most[...]


Horror Movie Remakes

I was flipping through my TV channels the other night and came upon a remake of Psycho. It got me thinking...there have been many remakes of famous horror movies. All of which are really well done; however, I still like the original movies better. Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates? He plays a total creeper, but I still think the original version is scarier. A remake of Carrie? A Stephen King classic? I know many people have truly enjoyed this version, but I can't see Carrie as anyone other than Sissy Spacek! My teen loves horror flicks, so I've chaperoned many[...]
