Sam Raimi wanted to make a superhero movie. After gifting the world with his absurdist 1987 horror-comedy masterpiece Evil Dead II, Raimi chased the rights to make movies out of both Batman and The Shadow. Both times, he failed. So he invented his own superhero—one who was really more of a deranged and revenge-crazed…
Lionsgate has their eyes on a genre master to help bring its fantasy adaptation, The Kingkiller Chronicles, to life. Variety reports the company is in talks with none other than Sam Raimi to direct the film, which is based on the first in a series of novels by author Patrick Rothfuss.
Starz has yet to reveal the season three premiere date for horror comedy Ash vs. Evil Dead (apparently, even star Bruce Campbell doesn’t know when the show will be back). In the meantime, you can pick up the season two DVD on August 22, and peek at what has to be one of the grossest bonus features ever below.
Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy is one of those series that has almost too much merchandise, in the form of toys, props, t-shirts—you name it, and it’s probably been licensed. One thing we’ve never seen, though, is maybe the best of the bunch: this custom bird feeder that looks exactly like the haunted cabin from the…
Most people would agree Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies are superior to Marc Webb’s Spider-Man movies. The question then becomes, “Why?” Well, we found a video that does a very good job of explaining “Why?”
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment caused a bit of a scene when it announced it was releasing “clean versions” of some of their most popular films, including all five of their Spider-Man already having kiddie versions. Now, after many directors have complained about their films being changed without their approval or…
Turn on your TV any Tuesday night and you’ll see that The Flash is a great live-action character. When it comes to his big screen solo debut, however, things have had trouble getting up to speed. Now three top-tier directors are reportedly in talks for a job that no one seems too keen to keep.
Just the fact that it’s one of three projects tackling the same idea already suggests a problem. But there are a lot more warning signs that maybe, maybe, this isn’t the best project for Sam Raimi to be tackling.
The first season of Ash vs Evil Dead was nonstop insane mayhem, continuing a story that began 35 years ago in the most rewarding way possible. How could the second season possibly top that? Sam Raimi had the answer: raise the stakes, allow certain characters to evolve, and make everything at least 10 times gorier.
We love Ash vs Evil Dead. And we get why the show is the most excellent way to continue Ash’s adventures as he blasts his way through his 50s. But that doesn’t mean we don’t wish that, back in the day, Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and company had made Evil Dead 4—especially now that we’ve heard a few of Raimi’s ideas.
Horror legends Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell hunker down for the commentary track of Ash vs Evil Dead’s first episode, in which Ash, Campbell’s extremely reluctant hero, realizes he hasn’t quite left those nasty Deadites in the past after all.
The cast and crew of Ash vs Evil Dead did a great job talking up season two at the show’s Comic-Con panel and press room. But the ultimate proof that the show’s return is cause for celebration came with a preview screening of the first episode, which won’t air on Starz until Halloween. It’s fantastic.
The boomstick, the chainsaw, gushing guts galore, a puppet, and a mechanical bull—all have their very brief moments in this tantalizingly quick teaser for Ash vs Evil Dead’s second season, which comes on the heels of last week’s new image from the show. (That’s another new one, above.)
Before Andrew Garfield and before Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi were going to make a fourth Spider-Man movie. For lots of rumored reasons, it never happened. Work on the film did take place, though—and now some awesome storyboards have hit the internet.
Evil Dead creator Sam Raimi’s has chosen his next project: an adaptation of George Friedman’s best-selling nonfiction book The Next 100 Years, which posits where the world may head over the next century. The movie version will be titled World War III, so suffice it to say we’re apparently not heading for a happy…
We’ve made no secret of our slobbering love for Ash vs Evil Dead, which has just three episodes left in its kick-ass first season. What will we do between January 2 and whenever season two starts? Well, we’ll binge-watch season one a lot ... and ponder all the reasons why it’s so freaking enjoyable.
Ash vs Evil Dead debuted on Halloween, which is thematically appropriate. But this would be our new favorite show any time of year: it’s funny, raunchy, goofy, and awesomely gory. And, naturally, star Bruce Campbell slays. Hail to the King, baby!
While Sam Raimi has been on the publicity circuit for Ash vs Evil Dead, he dropped an interesting bit of news: he would love to come back to direct another Spiderman movie.
