‘Evil Dead 2’ 4K Trailer Is Ready to Swallow Your Soul

Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 are very different films, even if they’re essentially telling the same story. Sam Raimi‘s first Evil Dead is attempting to be a serious horror movie, while Evil Dead 2 slips into slapstick comedy territory. That slapstick angle seems to be the one people remember the most when they think of Evil Dead, making the sequel the far more prominent film. Now Studio Canal is releasing an Evil Dead 2 4K Blu-ray in the 4K, and there’s a new trailer ready to swallow your soul. Wa...

‘Creepshow’ TV Series First Look Reveals the New and Improved Version of The Creep

The Creepshow TV series has begun filming, and executive producer Greg Nicotero just provided the first look at the horrors that await us all. The image features the new and improved version of The Creep, the ghostly figure spotted at the beginning of the Creepshow movie. There, the “character” was little more than a puppet (that eventually turned into a cartoon). Here, it appears to be someone in great special effects make-up, or a realistic animatronic. In either case, I’m excited. See the Cr...

‘Creepshow’ TV Series Adapting Stephen King’s Most Disturbing Story

As a horror fan, there’s not much that actually shocks or disturbs me. But there are exceptions. One of those exceptions is Stephen King‘s grisly short story Survivor Type, featured in his collection Skeleton Crew. It’s a queasy, nasty piece of work about a man shipwrecked on a desert island, forced to slowly eat his own body parts to survive. And now, it might be coming to TV. Director and special effects make-up artist Greg Nicotero is currently working on a new Creepshow TV series for Shudde...

The Scariest Movie Zombies of All-Time

The Scariest Movie Zombies of All-Time Zombies, ghouls, revenants — they’re all undead humans who attack and consume the flesh of the living. Zombies are the most recognizable monsters in cinema, but there wouldn’t be any if it weren’t for George Romero. His 1968 horror masterpiece Night of the Living Dead introduced the world to the hordes of flesh-eating rotten corpses. Once only relegated to horror, zombies now exist in all forms of pop culture.

How ‘Halloween’ Copyright Issues Led to the Best Joke in ‘Baby Driver’

Edgar Wright is a singularly talented filmmaker with a knack for balancing dynamic action scenes with comedy. And Baby Driver was the culmination of that — a heist film that played like a musical, with a fair few great jokes thrown in. But it turns out that one of the best gags of the film came about by accident. Wright revealed that the Baby Driver Mike Myers joke wasn’t actually written that way in the script, but a last-resort gag by the filmmaker after the Halloween copyright holders pre...
