Bruce Campbell reveals why he thinks Ash vs. Evil Dead was better than the movies



For generations of horror fans, the Evil Dead movies are a pinnacle of the genre — but series star Bruce Campbell surprisingly prefers the recent spin-off.

Campbell has recently vowed to retire from his iconic role as the chainsaw-swinging demon-hunter in Ash vs. Evil Dead after its cancellation, more than 30 years since he originated the darkly comic role.

In a recent interview with Digital Spy, he explained why he's reluctant to do another Evil Dead movie on the back of the TV show's recent successes.

Bruce Campbell on the Legend of Bruce Campbell and 40 years of Evil Dead



“I don’t think about death,” calmly states Bruce Campbell. That’s ironic, coming from him. Over the last 40 years Campbell’s become a legend in the entertainment industry for fighting off deadites and dealing with the Necronomicon. Having starred in what is arguably one of the most popular cult horror-franchises in the history of cinema, Campbell’s nonchalant declaration is a little unexpected. And yet, his notoriety from the Evil Dead films and series is actually an unintentional byproduct of a serendipitous series of events in an otherwise vast and all encompassing career.

You Can Now Pre-Order the Unrated Version of the ‘Evil Dead’ Remake on U.S. Blu-ray!



Back in October of 2016, you may recall, the extended “Unrated” version of Fede Alvarez’s insanely gruesome remake of Evil Dead got a digital release, home to five minutes of footage that was not included in the film’s theatrical release. Oddly, the “Unrated” version was *only* made available digitally, with no home video release in sight at that time.

Two years later, it’s finally on the way. As we recently told you, Sony will re-release Evil Dead on Blu-ray on October 23, including the theatrical & Unrated versions. As of today, the hotly anticipated Unrated Blu-ray is now available for pre-order over on Amazon!

The Evil Dead: Low Budget Legends



In 1979 Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Rob Tapert were just a group of hopeful filmmakers about to take the first step into cinematic history. They set out with the goal of creating “the ultimate experience in grueling terror” and produced a film that Stephen King called “the most ferociously original horror film of the year” in a review after seeing the film in Cannes. The trio created a delightfully gory film that fans still love.
