Phil Brown writes:
Bruce Campbell is a bit like Alexander Keith's beer. Those who like him, like him a lot.
While some people might recognize the star of the Evil Dead film trilogy from one of his many appearances on screens big and small, many of the sci-fi fanboys, horror lovers and comic-book obsessives descending upon the Metro Toronto Convention Centre today for Fan Expo Canada would rank him somewhere between a movie star and a demigod.
Q: Will there ever be another Evil Dead movie?
Bruce Campbell: It seems like we're actively pursuing a remake. That will probably happen at some point in the next couple years. As far as the sequel goes, we're going to wait until Sam Raimi isn't busy making big studio blockbusters. It's fun working with Sam. Some directors like to whisper in an actor's ear or take them over into a corner to give direction, but Sam just yells, "Pick up the pace! For God's sake, I'm falling asleep here!" He just cuts to the chase and he does it in a fun and entertaining way even though he means it.

With Rob Zombie’s sequel to his remake of HALLOWEEN opening tomorrow, it’s got me thinking about another potential remake in the proverbial “works”… that being a little diddy called THE EVIL DEAD, originally brought to us by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell.
So, you may… no, most probably ARE asking yourself, “Why the HELL are they remaking THE EVIL DEAD?” If so, you’re certainly not alone. (In fact, you are also not the only one who, on some level, really doesn’t care who plays Ash in the new film, because he’ll never compare to Bruce Campbell, right? We’ll get to that momentarily.) The ultimate question on everyone’s mind is… Who would be able to fill Mr. Campbell’s shoes if they do go through with the remake?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sam Raimi and Joshua Donen's Stars Road Entertainment have put together a two-year, first-look deal with Sony Pictures TV. Running this new entity will be CBS drama department, senior vice president Robert Zotnowski.
The plan for Stars Road is to get a bigger market share of broadcast TV and cable. The major focus will be drama. The horror projects will be handled by Raimi's Ghost House Pictures.
"We felt like-minded about television," stated Zotnowski, who is "a longtime fan and admirer of Sam Raimi."
Raimi is known in TV for such action-adventure hits as Xena: Warrior Princess and Legend of the Seeker. Other shows include American Gothic for CBS and the CW's 13: Fear Is Real.
"Sam, Rob and I have been very fortunate that our TV ideas have ended up as series," offered Donen, "but we realized that we needed somebody dedicated full time to that business."
Raimi has a very strong bond with Sony due to has masterminding of the Spider-Man franchise.

Bruce Campbell at fangoria weekend of horror in new york 1989
In my continuation to try to review some comics that aren't from the 'big two,' I thought I'd review Obama's crossover with Ash from Army Of Darkness. When I first heard about this, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. There's been so many Obama cover appearances. Is this going to be different? It's not just a cover appearance. It's actually a four issue mini-series. Can this possibly work or has the world just gone crazy?

He's faced them all, but Ashley J. Williams is about to face the greatest horror of his entire deadite-kickin' career - a comic book convention! But this ain't any ol' comic book convention, this one features a special appearance from the president of the United States of America - Barack Obama! How do things go from there when Ash and Obama are in the same place at the same time? And did we happen to mention that the Necronomicon is there doing the thing it does best - turning ordinary humans into the demon possessed undead!

Local news show PM Detroit filmed this piece on Renaissance Pictures and its newfound success with The Evil Dead in 1982, interviewing Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert and Bruce Campbell, as well as investor Brian Manoogian. Features clips from the Super-8 shorts Within The Woods and The Happy Valley Kid. This is not the whole segment - if you have a copy of the whole thing, please message me!
We still have one more day left at the Fright Night Film Festival in Louisville, Kentucky. Linda Blair is here along with a few other celebrities, and a LOT of horror related vendors are also here as well. The coolest part is the fans! I love talking to fans of the movie, who are scooping up tickets and t-shirts like crazy.
I met this one lovely young lady who had a great “cartooned Ash” tattoo on her arm. I took a photo of it with my phone, and it turned out a bit weird, but I still like the image…. here it is!

What happens when you take the cheesy horror fest of Evil Dead and mix it with the teenage wasteland of The Breakfast Club? Well, it would probably look a lot like Bad Kids Go to Hell, a new title from Antarctic Press.
The story takes its cues roughly from the two movies listed above. It features a group of misfits, mostly troubled rich kids, that have to spend a Saturday in detention. Due to reformations being done at the school, detention has been moved to a newly constructed library that was, naturally, built on haunted ground. Rumors have persisted about creepy crawling cockroaches and strange apparitions around the school, and sure, enough the horror manifests itself on this particular Saturday.

There comes a time to pick a celebrity to follow, to trumpet, to hold up for public consumption, for no better reason than you want the world to care about that person as much as you do.
For me, that time was 1998, when I launched the Bruce Campbell Watch in the pages of Time Out New York magazine. Why Bruce Campbell? To quote myself: “With a huge arsenal of B movies and a recurring role on ratings-grabbers Xena and Hercules, Campbell has attracted the same kind of cult following usually generated by household names like Duchovny, Shatner and Auberjonois. And with this new monthly feature, New Yorkers will learn what so many already know: that Bruce is the hardest-working, best-looking Detroit-born actor ever to command a cult following by replacing his own hand with a chainsaw.”
It’s obvious that Bruce Campbell no longer needs the Bruce Campbell Watch, if he ever even did.
Sounds like the perfect time to re-launch the project. In Web 2.0 no less.

The Colonial Theatre
Fri, Aug 7, 9:45 pm
227 Bridge St
Phoenixville, PA 19460
The First Friday Fright Nights have been going strong for over a year now and this Friday will be the best one of them all. Showing at the Colonial for the first time ever is Sam Raimi’s 1987 classic Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn. However this will not be just any screening of the film Variety calls “More an absurdist comedy than a horror film”. The Colonial will not only screen the film on 35 mm but it will be introduced by Richard Domeier who played Ed Getley (aka Demon Ed) in the film. This will be a great treat for all of our First Friday Fright Night Fanatics and a true treat for the Colonial.

If Michael, Fi and Sam were all stuck at Madeline's house somehow. They were together, there was a sudden attack by zombies, what do you think your own characters would contribute to the battles against an army of the undead.
Bruce Campbell: I would pick you up and hold you in front the zombies for asking such a lame question.

Bruce Campbell heads up the English dub of an 1987 underground title 'Ambush At Blood Trail Gate' by Naohiro Takita recently rediscovered by Shinobi Splat.
Young rebellious samurai Muramoto (voiced by Bruce Campbell) spends his days drinking sake and womanizing in a small Edo-era village. However, when he crosses the line with the Clan Leader’s daughter, the consequences are dire. The action builds to a thrilling climax at the legendary Blood Trail Gate.
Editor's Note: The video says "Preview unavailable", but it does play.
