Amazing Spider-Man 2 Is A Decent Movie Smothered By Layers Of Crap

Amazing Spider-Man 2 feels like four or five movies jammed together. The good news is, two of those movies are really, really good. The bad news is, the bloat and extra subplots get in the way of the storytelling, and feel like harbingers of overstuffed superhero movies to come. Minor spoilers ahead... »5/02/14 9:00am5/02/14 9:00am

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 11:40am10/28/13 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 12:15pm7/21/13 12:15pm

So they updated Evil Dead by making it torture porn with a little exorcism all up in it

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… »4/05/13 1:41pm4/05/13 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 3:23pm4/01/13 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 10:30am3/21/13 10:30am

Modernized Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness are getting made whether you like it or not

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 7:40am3/11/13 7:40am

First Evil Dead reviews paint remake as a psychotic gorefest that will make fans of the original laugh

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 2:15pm3/09/13 2:15pm
