Bruce Campbell plays the title character in Ash vs Evil Dead, the Starz-based TV series that Sam Raimi and his crew are concocting as the follow up to Raimi’s three Evil Dead films. But Campbell won’t be the only one bashing deadites in the ten-part series. We know he’s got a couple of supporting characters backing him up. Now, he’ll also be flanked by Jill Marie Jones (Girlfriends and Sleepy Hollow), who will be Campbell’s Ash vs Evil Dead co-star.
She’ll appear as a former cop who is initially tracking Ash as the major suspect in a crime, before realizing they all have bigger problems to deal with. Read More »

While Paul Feig‘s new Ghostbusters will have four funny actors fighting ghosts in New York City, that’s where the similarities to the original film end. Of course, we know this time all the leads will be played by women (Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon) and that their roles aren’t going to line up with the roles in the original film. We have an idea of what those roles are and now we have an idea of a fifth, key role in the film. A role that might be played by Saturday Night Live actress Cecily Strong. Read the latest Ghostbusters casting rumor below. Read More »
We Are Still Here looks like a mean, constrained monster movie, as it follows a couple who move into a new home, only to find that they have stumbled into a situation that will claim their lives. The film is set to play in the Midnight lineup at SXSW in Austin, TX in March.
This We Are Still Here trailer is a great introduction to the film — it begins with a casual conversation featuring comments about murder and unwitting cannibalism, and then jumps right into monsters punching right through someone’s chest. Genre faves like Barbara Crampton and Larry Fesseden are in the cast, and We Are Still Here looks almost like a spin on Lovecraftian horror. Check out the footage below. Read More »
Spring was one of the movies that had the most people talking at Fantastic Fest last year, and it was the one I was most bummed to miss. It comes from writer/directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who previously made the intense and unsettling film Resolution, and features Lou Taylor Pucci as an American backpacker who meets a beguiling young woman (Nadia Hilker) in Italy… and then discovers that she has secrets that set her apart from every other girl he’s ever met. This Spring trailer is pretty great, starting off with a pretty normal tone before getting really weird. Check it out below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Today is Friday the 13th and you’re probably seen images of Jason Voorhees, the killer at the center of the crazy successful Friday the 13th franchise, all over social media. The last film in the series was released in 2009 and a sequel has been in works since then. It was originally supposed to come out early this year, and is now set for May 13, 2016.
However, in that time we’ve heard very little concrete information on the film. We know Paramount will distribute. We know Platinum Dunes will produce and David Bruckner will direct. After that, the speculation has run rampant: will the next Friday the 13th sequel will once again reboot the franchise? Will it be found footage film? How will it use Jason?
Brad Fuller, one of the heads of Platinum Dunes, sat down with Esquire Magazine to offer some big updates on the franchise. The biggest being an interesting potential twist for the story, but also the assertion that it won’t be found-footage. (Which will hopefully put that one rumor to bed for good.) Read the Friday the 13th sequel update below. Read More »
Here’s the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak, which stars Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam in a gothic haunted house movie, but probably one that has some big-budget set pieces to provide scares and strangeness.
A young woman (Wasikowska) is romanced by a man (Hiddleston) whose sister (Chastain) seems to have secrets, and maybe some real issues related to their cloistered upbringing in a giant old house. And judging by the way this trailer ends, there are seriously freaky reasons for their problems. Check out the Crimson Peak trailer below, which is powered by a quiet but ominous cover of Nick Cave’s ‘Red Right Hand.’

Ash will fight evil once again, and he’ll have new friends to help him. The original Evil Dead crew is reuniting to create a ten-episode TV show called Ash vs. Evil Dead, in which the square-jawed, sad-sack hero played by Bruce Campbell will once again square off against the risen dead, and probably his own shortcomings. Sam Raimi is directing the first episode of the show, which he co-wrote with Ivan Raimi, Craig DiGregorio and Tom Spezialy.
So Bruce Campbell is coming back, and now we know who’ll be fighting with him. Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo have been cast as supporting players in the Ash vs. Evil Dead cast, and you can read more about who they’ll play below. Read More »
It’s not the biggest surprise that the New Zealand horror/thriller Housebound would be targeted for a remake. The movie is a lot of fun, with some excellent thrills, a couple of great scares, a very memorable lead character, played by Morgana O’Reilly, and some excellent supporting roles. O’Reilly plays a troubled young woman who is placed under house arrest, and while stuck in her mother’s home experiences unsettling things happening within the house. (See the original movie, is what I’m saying.)
But the film didn’t get the distribution it deserved, even with Peter Jackson’s name attached as an endorsement. Now Jackson has helped bring the film to the attention of New Line, which has picked up the Housebound remake rights. Read More »
