Sam Raimi’s classic film The Evil Dead is known for many things. Especially how damned bloody it was. With the remake looming, everyone’s wondering just what kind of violence we’re in store for. Well, Raimi himself has one hell of an answer for you.

Collider caught up with Raimi during a recent roundtable discussion (independent of the table we covered here), who had this to say about the gore in the upcoming film:

“It’s really bloody. It’s so bloody, it will make your head spin. I’ve seen almost all the dailies, and they’re really going for it. It’s gonna be grisly and intense and non-stop.” As for the rating, Raimi said, “Definitely R. Maybe worse.”

Ghost House Pictures is producing the much anticipated remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult-hit horror film The Evil Dead, the film that effectively launched the careers of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise, Darkman, Drag Me to Hell), Rob Tapert (30 Days of Night), and Bruce Campbell, who played the Ash character and was co-producer of the original. They are now back to produce an Evil Dead for today’s audience that’s high on the horror, gore, plot twists, and more from a screenplay written by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues with Diablo Cody. Executive producers are J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane, Joseph Drake, and Peter Schlessel.

A core cast of young, fresh talent includes Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”) as Mia; Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood) as David; Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) as Eric; Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) as Olivia; and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) as Natalie.

Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

Netflix’s Lost in Space Reboot Gets Fun Behind-the-Scenes Featurette



This April we will witness the launch of Netflix’s big-budget reboot of Lost in Space starring Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell, and Max Jenkins. I’m borderline excited as I feel this series could go either way, but I have to say casting Parker Posey as Dr. Smith is a great f*cking step in the right direction.

And speaking of Netflix’s “Lost in Space” today we have a fun behind-the-scenes look at The Robinsons’ epic adventure. Give it a look and then let us know if you’re excited for the reboot below!

The Netflix original series stars Toby Stephens (“Black Sails”, Die Another Day) as John Robinson, Molly Parker (“House of Cards”, “Deadwood”) as Maureen Robinson, Taylor Russell (“Falling Skies”) as Judy, Mina Sudwall (Maggie’s Plan, Freeheld) as Penny, Dr. Smith played by Parker Posey (Café Society, Mascot, A Mighty Wind), Don West is played by Ignacio Serricchio (“Bones”, The Wedding Ringer), and Max Jenkins (“Sense8”, “Betrayal”) as Will Robinson, the youngest and most vulnerable of the clan, who forms an unlikely and inexplicable bond with a sentient robotic alien being.

The series is produced by Legendary Television and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold, Last Witch Hunter). Zack Estrin (“Prison Break”) serves as showrunner. The three are executive producers alongside Synthesis Entertainment’s Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni with Applebox’s Neil Marshall and Marc Helwig. The original Lost in Space series was created by Irwin Allen.

“Lost in Space” launches on Netflix April 13.


Lost in Space is a Netflix Original dramatic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series. Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, lightyears from their original destination.

Video: George R.R. Martin Asks Stephen King, “How Do You Write So Fast?”



Two of the most undisputed masters of modern popular literature are Stephen King (IT) and George R.R. Martin (“Game of Thrones”). To see the two titans even sitting in the same room together is an epic joy, but to hear their witty, charming banter is a pleasure only known to the Gods… until now.

Below you can check out a fun video which features the notoriously slow writer Martin asking King just how the hell he writes so damn fast. King’s answer is classic and I guarantee this video will leave you smiling ear-to-ear for the rest of the day.

Check out the video below and then let us know what you think!
