​Relive the trauma of the Game of Thrones' Red Wedding all over again!

Kudos to HBO for this marketing campaign for the Game of Thrones season three set, which leads this week's home video releases. There's barely any show footage, just videos of people reacting to the infamous "Red Wedding" sequence in shock which will sell more copies than a regular trailer ever could. » 2/17/14 2:40pm 2/17/14 2:40pm

Get your hopes up, because Sam Raimi may direct Army of Darkness 2

Last week, Bruce Campbell announced that Army of Darkness 2 was in the works, but the internet — having heard so many rumors about a sequel for so many years — dared not to let themselves get too excited. But now the Evil Dead's remake director Fede Alvarez has announced that Sam Raimi will be helming the long-awaited… » 10/28/13 11:40am 10/28/13 11:40am

Holy crap, Oz the Great and Powerful was a remake of Army of Darkness

Don't believe me? Watch this video and you'll be completely convinced that Sam Raimi remade his 1992 classic too (spoilers for Oz, by the way — and Army of Darkness too, I guess, if you were still waiting to see it or something). I tell you, Oz would have been a lot better if James Franco had a chainsaw hand. » 7/21/13 12:15pm 7/21/13 12:15pm

So they updated Evil Dead by making it torture porn with a little…

If you're a fan of the Evil Dead movies, which vibrate with Sam Raimi's visual psychosis and Bruce Campbell's bug-eyed mania, you may find yourself disappointed by the Evil Dead reboot that the two just produced. The original movie trilogy was a slapsticky sendup of 1970s horror movies. Unfortunately the reboot is just … » 4/05/13 1:41pm 4/05/13 1:41pm

How do you make an Evil Dead movie after Cabin in the Woods?

In the new Evil Dead movie, five teenagers go to a cabin in the woods, and wind up raising something... sinister. Does that sound familiar? It's basically the premise of Cabin in the Woods, the horror spoof that Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon put out last year. Was Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez nervous about the… » 4/01/13 3:23pm 4/01/13 3:23pm

Watch the best part of Oz The Great and Powerful right here

Even though Sam Raimi's Oz the Great and Powerful was bungled from its first shrieking baboon, it did have style. Oz was undeniably gorgeous, and design trickery and innovation shone brightly during the title sequence, which Disney has released to the masses for your ogling pleasure. Watch it here, so you don't have… » 3/21/13 10:30am 3/21/13 10:30am

Modernized Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness are getting made whether…

The first reviews for the Evil Dead remake dropped this weekend, praising Fede Alvarez‘s movie for getting right to the gore, stripping out the silly and offering heaps of fan service (which wasn't necessarily a good thing for some reviewers). But apparently this was exactly what the studio wanted to hear. » 3/11/13 7:40am 3/11/13 7:40am

First Evil Dead reviews paint remake as a psychotic gorefest that will …

Last night, Fede Alvarez's remake of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead premiered at South by Southwest, and now that the critics have recovered from the haze of fake blood, they are furiously typing up their reviews. The verdict so far? Alvarez may not hit the glorious highs of Raimi's comedy-horror franchise, but he pays loving… » 3/09/13 2:15pm 3/09/13 2:15pm

Oz the Great and Powerful Should Have Been a B-Movie

In between making the disastrous Spider-man 3 and Oz the Great and Powerful, director Sam Raimi made what The Middleman once called "a zombie palate cleanser": the masterfully nuts B-movie Drag Me to Hell. As you watch the plodding action in Oz unfold, you'll find yourself wishing it had a bit more of the anything-goes… » 3/08/13 10:14am 3/08/13 10:14am

The final Oz the Great and Powerful trailer is pretty great,…

I never would have imagined The Wizard of Oz would warrant any kind of a prequel, but darned if all the previews and clips for Sam Raimi's upcoming Oz the Great and Powerful haven't looked pretty darned good. This final trailer still doesn't give us a good view of the Wicked Witch of the West, although it does have a… » 2/28/13 2:00pm 2/28/13 2:00pm

Here's the short film that gave Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell the chance …

Any fan of the Evil Dead trilogy probably knows the the story of how the franchise began — a young Sam Raimi and his pal Bruce Campbell made a super-cheap horror short called "Within the Woods" in 1978, which they used as a presentation to 1) prove they had the skills to make a real movie and 2) secure funding for said… » 1/17/13 9:30am 1/17/13 9:30am

New trailer for Oz The Great and Powerful has us wondering: is the…

Sam Raimi has released a much longer, even more colorful trailer for his Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful . Watch as James Franco is coddled by the three most beautiful ladies of all time — Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis. Looks like the Wizard is pretty close and cuddly with all three… » 11/14/12 6:37am 11/14/12 6:37am
