Reshooting Evil Dead

Can't resist that cabin fever!Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead is being prepped for reshoots … in comic book form. Close call, eh? I was going to say George Lucas was brought on board to add lots of high-priced CGI, but that joke may be old.

Anyway, Fangoria is reporting that Dark Horse Comics looks to revisit Ash’s first romp with the cabin and Book of the Dead by revamping some scenes and adding new ones. It will be an new take on the cult film.

Artist John Bolton and writer Mark Verheiden are being paired up for the Evil Dead comic that will take the form of a four part mini-series. The first issue should be hitting the shops in early January.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
