Everything We Learned From Ted Raimi’s Online Chat at the Telluride Horror Show


“There are monsters out there,” Ted Raimi states emphatically at the Shelter-In-Place edition of Telluride Horror Show. Hosted by Fangoria’s Meredith Borders, Raimi has everyone in stitches in the Deathly Spirits chat, a virtual cocktail hour offering viewers an opportunity to mix Ted’s drink recipes and engage with the genre favorite after the screening of his new short film Red Light. Hoping to turn this short film into a full length feature project, Raimi explains how initially, the plan was to just go ahead and make the movie. Sadly, like many in the entertainment industry, the outbreak of COVID-19 put plans on hold.

Bruce Campbell talks ‘Evil Dead’ before San Antonio screening at Tobin Center for the Performing Arts








There have been big-screen sequels, as well as video games, comic books, a musical and spinoff TV series like the recent “Ash Vs. Evil Dead.” And there’s more coming. “Evil Dead Rise,” the fifth movie, is being written and directed by Lee Cronin, and produced by Campbell and Raimi.

“Our theory is many average people confront evil in their everyday lives, so it’s our crazy imagination that you take average people and put them into really gnarly situations,” Campbell said.

“The Evil Dead” remains Sam Raimi’s best DIY triumph








The most striking thing about The Evil Dead is that, after all this time, it’s still scary as hell. Maybe that should be no great achievement: Horror movies ought to, in theory at least, still manage a few scares even on repeat viewings. But the amount of fright-inducing spectacle that writer-director Sam Raimi and company pack into eighty-five blood-soaked minutes is still remarkable for so many reasons.

The Evil Dead Filming Locations 39 Years Later - Then and Now



Today we are visiting Tennessee to check out The Evil Dead filming locations including where the cabin was located in Morristown, TN, and some of the other scenes in the film outside of Knoxville in Eastern Tennessee. Sadly, the cabin in Morristown burned down a few years after The Evil Dead was filmed, but it was still neat to see the movie locations and the area that The Evil Dead was filmed.

Tom Sullivan - Evil Dead (Retrospective Interview)


With only three weeks to break down Raimi’s script and create the necessary effects needed - and a further three months to create and film the stop motion blood and pus filled “Deadite Meltdown” at the end of the movie - Sullivan built a legion of makeup appliances, severed limbs, and some of the most iconic props in horror movie history.

“A Rollercoaster of Horror”: Director Lee Cronin Talks ‘Evil Dead Rise’ and How It Brings New Blood to the Franchise









To briefly recap, the next movie in the Evil Dead franchise is currently titled Evil Dead Rise, it’s being directed by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground), it won’t feature Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams, and it’s not going to be set at a cabin in the woods. Rumored but unconfirmed at this time is that the movie will be set in some kind of high-rise/skyscraper.

Cronin, who just directed the now-streaming “50 States of Fright” episode 13 Steps to Hell for Quibi, sat down for a chat with Bloody Disgusting’s The Boo Crew Podcast this week, and while he’s not allowed to say too much about Evil Dead Rise at this time, hosts Lauren & Trevor Shand and Leone D’Antonio did manage to get some interesting insights into the project.

Evil Dead Rise Director Shares Sam Raimi's Reaction to Plans for New Film







Not only did Cronin have to impress Raimi, but he also had to impress Rob Tapert, who served as a producer on all of the films, as well as Bruce Campbell, who starred in not only the films but also all three seasons of Ash vs. Evil Dead, who will serve as a producer on the new sequel.

"It certainly wasn't me meeting with Sam and going, 'I've got this in my back pocket and I've always been waiting to play this card,'" the filmmaker confessed. "I was just glad to meet with a filmmaker that has been inspirational to me and remains an inspiration to me to then have the opportunity, for him to give me the opportunity to think about what I would do. That was the really great part. And that sums up how Sam and Rob Tapert and Bruce work. They're really super supportive of your vision and your ideas, and that's really what they gave me. They gave me this space to go and figure out what to do and, I guess, thankfully, they saw something in my work that got them excited to allow me that freedom."
