Caricature of the actor Bruce Campbell aka Ash in the Evil Dead Trilogy
Step by step appeared in the new magazine "VISUAL ARTS ILLUSTRATED" formerly "ART SCENE INTERNATIONAL"
Last night at the USA Characters Appreciated party I had the opportunity to chat with "Burn Notice" star Bruce Campbell -- a man I've idolized since first experiencing "Evil Dead" when I was 10 years old. Also known as too young to fully grasp how naughty that tree was actually being.
So naturally when I met the man, the myth, the legend, I had to ask about the status of "Evil Dead 4," a movie that's rumored to be in the works. Sadly for me -- and the rest of the world -- Bruce had some bad news.
"It's really all baloney at this point," Bruce told PopWrap exclusively. "We'd love to do it, but by the time we get around to writing it, Ash is gonna have to be in a walker!" Considering it's been almost 20 years since the actor stepped into Ash's boots, the jibe is understandable. But I can't be the only one who'd pay to see another Ash-venture, no matter his age!
Thankfully, Bruce wants fans to hold out hope. "Now that Sam [Raimi, director] isn't doing "Spider-Man 4" he is available. So if he gets call waiting, maybe I can get through!" Gosh, I'd think that if anyone had a direct line to Sam Raimi (via his own personal Bat-phone), it'd be Bruce!
With director Sam Raimi no longer involved with the next Spider-Man project, it's possible Warcraft
's feature-length adaptation could be moving forward a few years ahead of schedule. While those details are still being worked out behind-the-scenes in Hollywood, two Blizzard Entertainment executives couldn't help but speculate about what's in store for the Warcraft movie at DICE 2010.
You might be surprised at their expectations for the movie.
Scary old women really freak me out.
I mean, ever since that rotting corpse rose out of the bathtub in The Shining, I've had this aversion to pruned up, creepy looking old hags. Maybe it was there before The Shining...yeah, probably. But man... that one really sealed the deal. Scarred me for life.
Anyway - Sylvia Ganush of Drag Me To Hell is a prime example of pure senior citizen revulsion. And malevolence.

NOT AVAILABLE ON LASERDISC IN THE U.S. Sam Raimi used the money he made from Evil Dead II, to pay for this film, which is supposedly the most expensive movie ever filmed on 16mm. Bruce Campbell is actually credited in this film as audio supervisor. Definitely an interesting watch, for fans of the Evil Dead movies.
Disc and jacket are in excellent condition, with obi.

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has announced the nominees for its 36th Annual Saturn Awards (though strangely enough, as of this posting, they haven’t posted them at the org’s official website yet). Sam Raimi’s DRAG ME TO HELL turned out to be the most honored fright feature, scoring five nominations including Best Horror Film.

We Internet denizens have a lot of fun with Horatio Caine, the “CSI: Miami” investigator played by David Caruso. Anyone who’s ever seen Endless Caruso One-Liners has enjoyed the comedic alchemy that comes from Caruso’s hammy seriousness and Roger Daltrey’s scream.
And it seems that Hollywood is catching on to what’s cool on the Internet. In last night’s episode of “Burn Notice” — which, like Caruso’s “CSI,” takes place in Miami — Sam Axe (played by the legendary Bruce Campbell) awesomely pulled Horatio Caine’s “one-liner + sunglasses” move. And not to pooh-pooh Caruso’s style, but I don’t think there’s anyone in Hollywood who can handle a one-liner as well as Campbell. This might be the coolest thing he’s done since he since he had a chainsaw attached to his severed arm.
IESB: Since you were a part of the Spider-Man films, what do you think about the decision the studio made to re-boot the series with a different cast and director?
Ted: It feels exciting, actually. I suppose I'm a little bit disappointed that I won't get to go back and do Hoffman again, but I think Sony is going to do a great job re-booting the series and making it a younger, fresher cast. They get to re-imagine the whole thing and I think they'll do a fine job with it. They always do. I think Spider-Man is in good hands.
IESB: You and Bruce Campbell have known each other a long time, and he even babysat you, as a kid. What do you enjoy about working with him? Do you have plans or hopes to work together again soon?
Ted: It's great to work with Bruce. The problem with working with Bruce is that it's like ammonia and ether. It's two volatile substances. You really should be mixing ammonia with water, or something. We don't really check each other very well, in that regard. I go off to left field and wonder, "I don't think Bruce is going to stop me from going crazy here." In that sense, it can be a crazy experience. But, on the same level, Bruce is so creative on set that there's this infectious, manic, wildness that goes on while he's directing, and I personally love that vibe. That's something I always hope I will get with other directors, but seldom do.
IESB: Will you be involved with the My Name is Bruce sequel, Bruce Campbell vs. Frankenstein?
Ted: I can tell you that I will be in it, yes. But, as to what I'm doing in there, I'm not allowed to say because Dark Horse Comics will send their goons after me and kill me.
GAREB SHAMUS WELCOMES BRUCE CAMPBELL TO PHILADELPHIA COMIC CON
Bruce Campbell will meet fans on Saturday, June 12, 2010 as special guest of Philadelphia Comic Con.
“It’s so much fun to bring Bruce Campbell to our Philadelphia fans. From Army of Darkness to his cameos in the Spider-Mans to Cloudy with a Chance [of Meatballs] he spans all the genres and he really knows how to have fun with his appearance,” said Shamus.
Bruce Campbell even has a special message for his fans, "Hey gang, I look forward to tormenting you all at Wizard - and because I am a big fan of Philly, here is a special offer: $10.00 to any person in my autograph line with an Evil Dead, Ash or Tom Cruise tattoo!”
Bruce Campbell is currently starring on Burn Notice, the hit USA Network original series. His long history of great characters along with his current roles ensures an impressive fan turnout at Philadelphia Comic Con.
I recently got a chance to talk to Ted Raimi who's reprising his role as the magic peddler Sebastian on this upcoming new episode of Legend of the Seeker "Hunger."
Ted Raimi talked about what his character is up to in the episode, the possibility of guest starring again, shooting in New Zeland, his other projects and much more. So make sure to tune in this weekend and watch Legend of the Seeker's new episode "Hunger" (go to the official website to find your local time & channel). But for now, enjoy the interview.

Sharp-eared TV fans have probably known this for a long time because NBC has been using the music for a while, but 'Lost' producer Carlton Cuse Twittered about it the other day to let everyone else know: a lot of the music that NBC is using on their Olympics coverage is the theme song to another show that Carlton co-created/produced back in the early 90s. Here's the video. God I loved this show.

For those who aren’t celebrating the real holiday of Ash Wednesday, we suggest you start your own celebration by watching one of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead movies. My suggestion, as always, is go ahead and jump to the third picture, Army of Darkness. It’s self-contained and includes some of Ash’s best quips and moments. For those of you who are giving up something for Lent, you can use Ash’s sacrifices (his hand, various women, and - depending on which ending you watch - just about everything) to help inspire you with your own sacrifices. Not that we really need an excuse to watch Ash take on primitive screwheads with his boomstick, but the holiday name just begs for this new tradition.
First, a bit of a mea culpa: We discovered this news tidbit in an on-line article from Video Business a little while back, and have spent the time since trying to dig up more details. None were forthcoming, and since then the mag and its on-line incarnation have gone defunct, so the original posted item has been lost in cyberspace. But trust us: it was announced that THE EVIL DEAD will be making its hi-def disc debut later this year.
A source from Anchor Bay Entertainment, which has issued Sam Raimi’s classic gruefest in several DVD editions over the past decade, confirmed to the trade that the movie is on their Blu-ray slate for 2010. We haven’t been able to confirm which extras will be ported over from those previous discs, whether new ones will be created or if Raimi and co. are directly involved, but we’ll keep digging and bring you further info as we get it!
Actor Ted Raimi is director/producer for the new dark comedy web series, Playing Dead. He teams up once again with Groundlings alum Suzanne Keilly, who writes and stars in the 8-episode series at www.WatchPlayingDead.com.
Based on a short play written by Keilly, Playing Dead follows Grace, an out-of-work actress that lands a part-time job as Death. To pay the bills, Grace agrees to be the grim reaper’s little helper. Taking each assignment to escort someone to the other side proves to be harder than it looks and Grace suddenly finds herself breaking all the rules in order to get the job done.
Recognized by millions of fans for his roles in sci-fi and horror flicks, Raimi has starred in numerous film and television projects including USA Network’s “Xena Warrior Princess,” all three Spider-Man movies, Adam Sandler’s Reign Over Me, and the newly released Drag Me to Hell. Raimi also created the MTV show “Normal Joe” and directed the web series, “Rebooted.”
Coming up, Raimi will be once again behind the camera for a new internet horror anthology series he has created and he’s also putting the finishing touches on a feature script which will reunite him with long-time pal Bruce Campbell (Army of Darkness).

...Ash! Yeah, there you got it! For me, the demon-killing hero of Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD trilogy is by far the coolest and most badass cat in chainsaw town! The girls succumb to his charms, the guys admire his guts and every Candarian demon from here to Michigan fears the baneful roar of his chainsaw more than the purifying words of even the most skillful exorcist.
These are all the Evil Dead hartboxes l have....3 more to go, but since they are rare and expensive it will need some time.
All of these dvd's were for sale in legal normal shops, as far as my knowledge goes, these are NO bootlegs, l don't collect bootlegs whatsoever!

In past articles I’ve already made my frightening Nostradamus-like prediction that Hello Kitty will eventually take over the world. But that doesn’t mean the human race has to go quietly, and ironically this Hello Kitty themed chainsaw will be the perfect tool as we battle for our freedom from the forces of cute and pink.

I revamped this vintage tee into a slender cut, girl's top with a deep U-neck and halter ties. Don't miss out on the chance to own this one of a kind shirt from mad*foxes!
All right you primitive screwheads, listen up! We are extremely proud to announce the appearance of living legend Bruce Campbell at Comicpalooza 2010. Yes, the Man, the Mystery, the Chin himself will be in Houston this March to entertain and amuse with his inimitable personality and tales of derring-do. Stop by and say hi to the greatest hero of all time. Groovy!
This is a minute-long remake of the 1987 classic 'Evil Dead II' that we shot for the 2010 Empire 'Done in 60 Seconds' competition. I don't think we won.
TV Commercial of EVIL DEAD that aired in 1999 on the AluCine Channel.
On Monday, October 8, 2002, actor Bruce Campbell exhibited his then-new film, Bubba Ho-Tep, at the River Oaks Theatre in Houston, Texas. Prior to the film, he spoke and conducted a brief question and answer session for the crowd. This is a summary of that event.

Now that Disney has pulled the plug on McG's proposed Captain Nemo movie, it looks like a competing 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea project from Spider-Man's Sam Raimi has an open field.
It's not yet clear whether that film will move forward, but we're still intrigued by the idea of a Raimi version of Jules Verne's classic science fiction tale. Craig Titley wrote the screenplay for Raimi's Stars Road Entertainment. (Raimi is producing, not directing.)
The Sam Raimi director spotlight gets going in full swing as we take a look back at his 1978 - 1993 works. As many know, the inspiration for The Evil Dead was born from a 1978 short film titled Within The Woods (Link) and it's interesting to find that many distinct Raimi trademarks are present from the very beginning.
9. Ash and Evil Ash in “Army of Darkness” (1993) The final chapter of the “Evil Dead” trilogy abandons any thread of seriousness and embraces the slapstick and physical elements that first appeared in “Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn.” And there isn’t a scene that better epitomizes this than when series hero Ash meets, or rather, births his doppelganger.
Saturday Night Live attempts to take USA Networks highest-rated scripted drama down a peg or or a million in a game show skit titled “What is Burn Notice?” by suggesting that despite its high ratings on cable, nobody in the real world has any clue about the show.
It is interesting to see NBC picking on its sister cable network. Someone e-mailed me that NBC could have just as easily have done this with Mercy from its own network. But the premise of the skit is that here you have this hit show soon to enter its fourth season (things that can’t be said about Mercy) and most people have no idea what the show is.
“Is it a reality show…about sunglasses?”
Back in 1981, a group of friends thought they'd try their hand at making a horror film on a shoestring budget. Perhaps you've heard of them. Today, director Sam Raimi is best known as being the man behind the camera for Spider-Man, while star Bruce Campbell has leveraged his role to become arguably the greatest B-movie actor of all-time. Sure, you've watched it 40 or 50 times and are familiar with every bloody scene, but how well do you know The Evil Dead?
What if TNA decided to do another hot celebrity angle (this time without Pacman Jones)? What if they decided to put that celebrity in the ring? What if they decided to put him in the ring with none other than Hulk Hogan? And what if that celebrity was Mr. "Hail to the King" himself...Bruce Campbell???

If I could ever have the celebrity valentine of my choice, it would without a doubt be Bruce Campbell. To me, Bruce Campbell is the epitome of cool and I'm not ashamed to admit that I've had a crush on him since I was 13 years old. He's the only man my girlfriend would feel threatened by if I met him in person. Yep. I'm a lesbian but have a massive crush on Bruce Campbell and it has no signs of stopping.
Josh Becker of Xena and Hercules fame joins us to talk about his new book "Going Hollywood," his fun times with Bruce Campbell, and his lengthy motion picture career. Plus, the fellas discuss Edge of Darkness and The Book of Eli.
For my final project, I wanted to do a full face prosthetic appliance. I've shown the steps of life casting my girlfriend's face, and now is the moment to show what I learned and gained from my first round of schooling in special effects make-up. This would be the ultimate test of how far I could push myself to deliver a quality look, unassisted, in three hours.
I wanted to create a Zombie, but I also wanted to put my own spin on it. Something horrifying, but not yet repulsive. Like scary magic. I decided to draw inspiration from Michael Jackson's THRILLER and the cult film classic EVIL DEAD 2. I wanted to marry the sunken lifelessness of Michael with the over exaggerated horror of a Deadite. Using this as a template I embarked on many sculptings of how to make this happen.
This episode we take a look at The Evil Dead.
We caught up with Ted at the recent premiere of Spartacus: Blood and Sand and managed to pull him aside for a few questions about his time on Xena, his genre-intensive acting career, and his reoccurring guest spot on Legend of the Seeker.
TTO: When you and Sam were kids out making your movies, did you really think you’d be able to do that kind of stuff as adults?
Ted Raimi: I can’t say for Sam, naturally, but I didn’t think these genre movies that I loved so much would ever be so popular. When I was a kid, this was only B-movies. This was only second-reels and stuff you see on TV. It never really reached the theaters in such massive amounts.I think it’s a wonderful departure from movies in the 70s and 80s. We’ve gotten away from the harsh realities of the 70s, the goofiness of the 80s, the sort of blasé “removedness,” if that’s a word, of the 90s, and now we’re in sort of a fantasy play-world.
For me, this is sort of the golden age of movies and TV, and I’m very lucky to be living through it.
As a kickoff to our extended Sam Raimi director's spotlight we sit down to revisit one of the all time great films of the genre. It's a pretty one-sided argument to say Evil Dead 2 is one of the most beloved horror flicks out there with a truly iconic performance by one Bruce Campbell so it's only fitting that an episode is devoted to discussing what makes this such a fun watch.
Despite our best efforts, things did end up coming down to reactions to the frenetic craziness happening on screen but we hope you take from the show some of our enjoyment of watching Ash and company continue the never-ending battle with those pesky Candarian demons - the deadites.
