Looks a lot like what I am thinking Raimi wanted to do in the first place but he didn't have the budget.

Have you seen the trailer? Think of it as "what would happen if someone else had come to the cabin?" then you should be fine.

Aye.

Raimi being involved legitimizes it. From what a read, the director is the hand-picked choice of Raimi.

I think "No Ash" is a fantastic move. I can't imagine anyone but Bruce playing "Ash" and having the Ash character in the remake would have been bound to fail.

Ash was goofy and so is Evil Dead. The "remake" isn't goofy and Ash wouldn't be a good character in it. I am looking forward to seeing it.

All I'm hoping for is a fun horror movie. If it's anything like Drag Me To Hell, I'll be satisfied.

Evil Dead 4 with Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi is still happening, and it's Army of Darkness 2.

There are 2 endings to Army of Darkness? All I know of is the S-Mart ending.

Now this makes my day. So long as they don't dress him up as old as he is in Burn Notice.

I'd guess the S-Mart ending. Wasn't that the theatrical one?

Finally watched this week's episode last night...I thought it was OK.

The meeting between Rick and the Governor was good and tense, but it went on for a bit too long, especially since we all knew that no real solution was going to come out of it.

Andrea is definitely my least favorite character on the show, so any scenes with her are basically negatives for me.

The conversation between Rick and Herschel at the end was irritating. Rick more or less says, "I know the Governor wouldn't keep to his word if I hand over Michonne, but I think I'm going to hand over Michonne." Neither the audience nor the characters in the show should need the Governor's explicit statement to the nerdy guy that he doesn't plan on honoring the deal to know that he's never going to honor that deal.

With regard to the other conversation going on in here, I just Evil Dead for the first time a couple weeks ago. I like Army of Darkness, and haven't seen Evil Dead 2, but I just don't see what the appeal of Evil Dead is. I would laugh every time Ash was on screen, not because he was funny in Evil Dead, but because I just kept picturing Ash from Army of Darkness. Do people like Evil Dead just because it was a precursor to better movies, because it is good relative to its small budget, or is there something else I'm missing?

Evil Dead was very groundbreaking for its time, especially considering the budget. It basically created the "kids in a cabin" subgenre of horror.

If someone watches Night of the Living Dead or Evil Dead today for the first time, they'll probably laugh at them, but I think it's necessary to keep in mind the context of when they were made and what other horror films were being produced in that era. Horror was terribly boring and tame when NOTLD was made (Hammer Horror was about the pinnacle of the genre). When Evil Dead was released, it was all about masked killers (Halloween, Friday the 13th, etc.)

Both NOTLD and ED were game changers, imo.

Weren't you just chastising me yesterday for not liking some of the offerings from the series? Get your life together. :pop:

Ha, does anyone around here have anything nice to say about Andrea?

Seems every episode people say "episode sucked, Andrea is terrible" or "I liked the episode, Andrea is terrible"

Kind of funny. Even the episodes where she is barely shown. If the camera pans past and she is even shown "Andrea is terrible." You have to think the powers that be know this and she dies this season or something. They could probably make a 5 minute episode and just kill her and everyone will love it.

There is a brief article on the show in the latest issue of Rolling Stone.

There will be a body count of 27 for the final episode of the season. I doubt that means 27 speaking roles, obviously, but that's big.

The show is going in the direction of that episode by the new showrunner - Scott Gimple, the episode where Rick, his son, and Michonne go off on a road trip. Fewer characters per episode, and more character development.

If the show follows the comic story arc, get used to Andrea sticking around.

She and Rick actually hook up. But she never was separated from the group or banging the Gov. in the comics, so who knows

True, but you could see that they were sort of going that route in the show, at least from Dale's perspective
