Oh, what the hell, we haven’t done an Evil Dead 4 story in a while, have we? Luckily The Chin got to jawing with MTV’s Movie Blog recently on that very subject, which gives us something to talk about.
So, why did Sam Raimi finally decide to come back to the horror genre after years of making one of the most successful comic book film series of all time?
In my personal opinion, reality TV needs to go. Well, at least the stuff that is only about groups of soulless backstabbers should be canned. Give me "Wipeout" or "13 - Fear is Real" any day!
Entertainment Weekly has opened up a gallery previewing 25 "sneak peeks" for the upcoming films which will be making appearances at 2008's San Diego Comic-Con.
We heard not too long ago that Sam Raimi would remake his classic Evil Dead just because it would look better now, but what about continuing on the existing franchise instead? Sam may not have that in mind, but does Bruce Campbell?

What strikes me most funny about this article is the reference in the very first line to “the booming horror genre”. Like horror’s never made money before? Like it’s this newly discovered method of getting a lot for a little?
More names have been added to Sam Raimi’s return to horror, the possession film Drag Me to Hell, according to The Hollywood Reporter this morning. Shooting begins on Monday in LA.
When something like this comes across our virtual desks here at Dread Central, I usually have a moral dilemma regarding what we should do with it. On the one hand, looking at a breakdown of who the characters are in a film can reveal some important spoilers. On the other, when the film is as hush-hush as Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell, it’s our civic responsibility to spread as much info on it as we can... that's how I sleep at night.
That was a short wait! Variety reports that not even a week after everyone made a big deal out of Ellen Page leaving Sam Raimi’s return to horror, Drag Me To Hell, already a replacement has been found; Alison Lohman.
Jeffrey Lynch is out and Sam Raimi is now taking his place in the director’s chair for Drag Me to Hell, the first horror movie the diminutive helmer will direct for his horror production house, Ghost House Pictures.
