'Evil Dead' Remake Confirmed By Bruce Campbell And Sam Raimi

July 18th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Bruce Campbell
"Believe in the remake, dawg! The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell." That's what Bruce Campbell tweeted recently after a fan asked him about rumors of an Evil Dead remake.

The original film was a cult hit in the early 80s after it failed to make a splash in theaters due to excessive gore. It began director Sam Raimi's career, who would go on to direct the Spider-Man trilogy and Drag me to Hell.

Now it appears the original producing trio of Robert Campbell, Sam Raimi, and Robert Tapert are all in to re-create the horror film.

An official statement was releas...

Fernanda Romero
Mexican actress Fernanda Romero has been sentenced to 30 days behind bars after admitting to lying to immigration officials in a bid to gain U.S. residency.

In January, the Drag Me To Hell star pleaded guilty to making a false statement to authorities investigating her sham marriage to American musician Kent Ross.

However, the sentence will only be served on weekends, according to the Associated Press.

31 Days Of Horror: 'Night Of The Demon' (1957)

October 8th, 2010 1:35pm EDT
Night of the Demon (1957)
Why didn’t anyone tell me that Drag Me to Hell is basically Night of the Demon on amphetamines?

There’s the three day curse, the floating scrap of paper, the attempts to pass the curse onto others, the séance, the opening sequence showing the fate of the cursed, an ending on train tracks. It’s basically a remake--which is fine, really, I just feel kind of like a schlub for not knowing that already. In fact, if all remakes were like the Night of the Demon/Drag Me To Hell connection then the world would be a much better place.

But I digress.

Night of the Demon is a title you hear often wh...

31 Days Of Horror - Wrap Up

November 2nd, 2009 3:35pm EST
Demons
With Halloween come and gone, Starpulse writer Kris King has wrapped up his horror movie marathon. For the last three days Kris deals with the demon apocalypse

in "Demons," gets beaten up by a large French man in "Martyrs," and makes a lot of boob jokes with "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark."

October 29 - Demons (1985)

"Demons" starts off as a wickedly clever meta-movie. While Wes Craven's "Scream" discusses the rules of horror films and then applies them to its own story, the Dario Argento produced "Demons" goes a few steps further by setting the film in an old movie theater. "Demons" pu...

31 Days of Horror - Week 2: 'Paranormal Activity,' 'Drag Me To Hell,' More

October 16th, 2009 11:49am EDT
Paranormal Activity
With the Halloween season in full swing, Starpulse contributing writer Kris King is watching a horror movie that has passed him by for every day in October. This week, Kris experiences

Paranormal Activity, gets dragged to Hell, and watches Bill Paxton kill people with an axe.

October 8 - Paranormal Activity (2009)

Horror movies don't really scare me. They can be tense or gross, funny or creepy, but it's rare when I lose much sleep over them. Paranormal Activity is different. Paranormal Activity is scary. Even if you don't believe in the supernatural, the film's brutally slow accumulati...

Summer Movie Awards Part 1: Surprise Hit, Biggest Bombs & More

September 9th, 2009 9:53am EDT
G.I. Joe
Now that Labor Day has come and gone, the official end to summer has now passed. Yes, the days will now be shorter, the weather cooler (unless you're smart enough to live in Southern California like this column's scribe), and for some school resuming its session, but there's also a lot of good news.

TV is back, football is back, and summer movie season is finally at its end. Yes, no more summer movies, no more endless weekends filled with event films that shatter theater speakers and routinely melt screens with too much rambunctious action. It's a thankful end to a season that routine...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

June 1st, 2009 4:54pm EDT
Land of the Lost
I'm ashamed to say I still haven't gotten a chance to see "Terminator Salvation," but it's my top priority to see it this week. I also need to get out and see "Drag Me to Hell," because I continue to hear nothing but good things about it.

This week is a big week for comedies, with four premiering. We have "Land of the Lost," "Away We Go," "The Hangover," and "My Life in Ruins." I'm very excited because I will be seeing an advanced screening of "The Hangover." I have high hopes that it will be very funny, but I'll let you know what I think after I see it.

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

May 26th, 2009 8:57am EDT
Up
This week is probably the least exciting of the summer movie season so far because we don't have an epic blockbuster premiering. There are three movies coming out, two of which are mainstream releases. Pixar fans will be happy to see the group's latest animated feature, and Sam Raimi aficionados will get their fix with something that thankfully isn't another "Spider-Man" movie.

While I tend to like Pixar's movies, I never generally get super excited about seeing them in the movie theater. Aside from "Wall-E" and "Toy Story," which I saw in theaters, I've enjoyed their other films ...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...
