Bring on Fede Alvarez’s EVIL DEAD PART II!


Recently we were hit with the news that director Fede Alvarez might have found his new film with the currently untitled flick dubbed “The Shining in the White House.” And while that sounds like ten types of fun, I think I’d much rather see Alvarez considering Evil Dead 2 his next film.

Especially considering Bruce Campbell says he’s producing the next Evil Dead movie.

On top of all of that, I’m a big fan of the idea of a female taking over the recently vacated role of “Ash” in the future Evil Dead films – and Jane Levy’s Mia from Alvarez’s remake is more than up to the task to say the very least. In fact, as we learned in Alvarez’s Don’t Breathe Levy kicks all the ass and I don’t know a single horror fan that would lament her return.

With all of this in mind, I can’t help but imagine what a sequel to Alvarez’s Evil Dead might look like. So join us as we dig into what we think might make for a killer follow-up to one of the best remakes out there. Here’s how we think Evil Dead Part II could work.

Dynamite announces DEATH TO THE ARMY OF DARKNESS #1 featuring a cast of multiple Ashes

Click to enlarge images:

One Ash Williams is a handful, but what happens when our hero is splintered into multiple versions of himself? In Death to the Army of Darkness #1, writer Ryan Parrott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Batman: Gates of Gotham) offers up a comedy-horror epic with artist Jacob Edgar (Savage Tales: Red Sonja) starring clones of the over-the-top Ash. Rounding out the creative team is colorist Kike J. Diaz (Sherlock Frankenstein, Ether) and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou (Red Sonja, Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt).

The new series begins just after the legendary Army of Darkness film, and a bad translation of the Necronomicon is of course to blame for the antics. Versions of Ash include his feminine side Ashley Williams, the erratic Lil’ Ash, Dash aka Doggie Ash, the cynical and morose Skeleton Ash, and Chainy—Ash’s now sentient chainsaw! Their mission is to travel through time to Ancient Egypt and prevent the Necronomicon from ever being written in the first place.

This weekend Campbell and his strong jawline are returning to KC — a city where Campbell has a surprising family connection. More on that later.

The MSO’s live performance of ‘The Evil Dead’ was a show for the ages

While the crowds gathered outside Luna Park for their Spooktober night of fun, the real Halloween party was happening next door at the Palais Theatre as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra took to the stage to perform one of the biggest cult horror films ever, The Evil Dead.

For the uninitiated, Sam Raimi’s classic 1981 film tells the story of five college students who head to a cabin in the woods for a weekend away. In the cellar, they find the Necronomicon Ex Mortis (roughly translated, The Book of The Dead) and unleash a hellish string of demonic forces upon themselves and the surrounding woods. Filled with Raimi’s trademark visual style and slapstick humour, it’s the perfect gory Halloween film to be watched with a group of friends on the couch or with a crowd of fans in a massive St Kilda theatre.

Providing an extra treat for fans, conductor Brett Kelly and the talented musicians from the MSO were joined on stage by the film’s original composer, Joe LoDuca, who joined the company on keyboard and guitar. Introducing the film, LoDuca explained how he first got involved with Raimi, producer Rob Tapert and star Bruce Campbell as a student in Michigan in the early ’80s, before breaking down what was in store for the evening. Having nearly 100 credits to his name, LoDuca has returned to his first film score and reimagined it to make it bigger and better.

From the second the film began, the audience was on board. Spontaneous bouts of laughter and cheering erupted from every axe swing and bad line reading. Even the orchestra members were getting into the spirit of it, watching the screen with big smiles on their faces while Ash frantically hacks away at his possessed friends.
