Star of "Burn Notice" Bruce Campbell talks with Carrie Keagan on Big Morning Buzz Live.
We’ve known since this summer that Fede Alvarez, director of the short Panic Attack, is going to direct a new version of Sam Raimi‘s breakout film The Evil Dead. Other than that basic report, and the fact that Alvarez, Rodo Sayagues and Diablo Cody all worked on the script, we haven’t known much about the movie. Now, thanks to the upcoming American Film Market, we’ve got a synopsis that makes the movie sound like a carbon copy of Raimi’s original. But a few more details that have come to light reveal ways in which the remake will veer off into slightly different territory.
Whether you prefer the shambling or sprinting camp, there’s no excuse to be a shoddy zombie at a Halloween party.
Sure, retail stores have stocked up on fake blood and latex applications this October, but those are the same pre-packaged apps anyone could buy and use. That’s not good enough for a dedicated nerd who wants to take their effects to the next level.So we’ve assembled a few movie magic tips from makeup gurus who know how to make you look horribly awesome this Halloween.

evil dead stuff!
Every horror fan and gorehound worth his or her weight in red-tinted corn syrup has seen 'The Evil Dead,' the landmark low-budget horror classic that debuted 30 years ago this week (on October 15, 1981) and launched the careers of director Sam Raimi and actor Bruce Campbell. But even fans of the 'Spider-Man' director, the 'Burn Notice' star, or the demonic-possession tale that gave them their start when they were still college students three decades ago may not know all the gory details behind the making of the movie -- the real-life ghost story behind the abandoned cabin where it was filmed, the horrors endured by the cast during the lengthy shoot, the high-profile fans who gave the movie a boost, and the ever-ongoing list of sequels and spinoffs (including a stage musical) that 'Evil Dead' continues to generate. Here are 25 things you may not have known about the zombie franchise that refuses to stay dead.
