Sam Raimi Returns to Horror…With a Chevy Malibu Ad
Sam Raimi Returns to Horror…With a Chevy Malibu Ad
Sam Raimi hasn’t made a new horror film since 2009's Drag Me to Hell, his arguably underrated, super-gross gypsy curse flick. Aside from producing the Ash vs. Evil Dead series for Starz (and directing one episode), Raimi has remained focused on other, non-horror projects, like his Spider-Man trilogy, Oz the Great and Powerful, and his upcoming remake of French drama A Prophet. Fans of the Evil Dead mastermind may be interested in this video, then, which is the closest we’re likely to get to a new, original Raimi horror film…kind of.

Ted Raimi and The Six-Million Dollar Man Join ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’ Season 2
Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead earned itself a groovy Season 2 pickup before the first run even premiered, and now Bruce Campbell is already dusting off the chainsaw again. Joining Ash this year will be none other than cameo mainstay Ted Raimi, along with The Six Million Dollar Man himself, Lee Majors, in roles key to Ash’s childhood.
‘Poltergeist’ Review: A Decent Remake Haunted By the Spirit of the Original
‘Poltergeist’ Review: A Decent Remake Haunted By the Spirit of the Original
Everything that goes wrong in Poltergeist stems from an act of desecration; the building of a cookie-cutter housing development on top of an old cemetery. Some might find the sheer act of attempting a remake of Poltergeist similarly disrespectful; the 1982 original is something of a masterpiece of suburban terror. But if viewers can look past the sheer audacity of attempting another Poltergeist, they’ll find a solid modernization, the cinematic equivalent of a decent cover version of a great rock song. It’s totally superfluous, and not nearly as satisfying as the original, but well-performed and effective in its own way. It’s nice (or, in this case, deeply unsettling) to revisit an old classic in a new arrangement.

‘Poltergeist’ First Look: They’re Heeere…(And They Look Awfully Familiar)
The original 1984 ‘Poltergeist’ is one of the best horror films ever made. With its PG rating, it’s also one of the great Trojan Horses of genre cinema. Parents show it to their kids, thinking it will be a a little scary but totally family-friendly experience, only to realize too late (usually around the point where the guy hallucinates his face being torn off) that the movie means business. So, when we dive into the first look at the upcoming ‘Poltergeist’ remake, we do so with the skepticism of people who think the original masterpiece holds up as well today as it did over 30 years ago.

Comic-Con 2014: Could Maisie Williams Star in ‘The Last of Us’ Movie?
In a surprise move, this year's Screen Gems Comic-Con panel turned most of its attentions and energies to a film without a cast, a director, or a script in place: the long-teased 'The Last of Us' feature film. The film was officially announced back in March, and producer Sam Raimi and video game creator Neil Druckmann (who is now officially on board to write the script for the film) popped up at this afternoon's panel to talk about the feature film as part of Screen Gems' future-leaning panel.

Sam Raimi was on hand at Comic-Con 2014 today for the Screen Gems panel, where he discussed his involvement in the upcoming adaptation of the 'Last of Us' video game. But that's not all he discussed: seems like Raimi isn't quite done with 'Evil Dead,' the film franchise that kickstarted his career. While we won't be seeing another Raimi-directed 'Evil Dead' film anytime soon, we will be seeing more 'Evil Dead' ... on the small screen.

‘The Grudge’ Is Getting a Reboot (Again) From Sam Raimi

‘Oz: The Great and Powerful 2′ — Disney Is Already Prepping a Sequel
When it comes to tentpole studio releases, there's a pressure to get the next one made two or three years after the first, simply so the brand is still in people's heads. The best way to get a jump on that is to start prepping the sequel before the first film is released, and because (at least with these films) the script is often the cheapest part, it's no surprise that Disney has already commiss
