I'm a fan of the original EVIL DEAD. I like EVIL DEAD 2 but see it more like a comedy remake of the first movie (which is pretty deadly serious). I think that most people when they think of Evil Dead as a comedy are thinking of the 2nd movie.

I'm not a fan of ARMY OF DARKNESS.

But THIS actually looks good and seems to hit all of the right notes. I'm interested in seeing how this goes.

I greatly prefer The Evil Dead to either of its sequels. For my money they got progressively worse. Too much slapstick.

Probably why I didn't instantly condemn the remake...it was more akin to the original than the sequels.

It'd be cool if Mia / Jane Levy turned up on the show eventually.


Dammit, why don't I have Starz?!

Shadow Lodge

Does Starz have anything going with Hulu?


I doubt it...it's a premium channel alongside HBO and Showtime. Maybe an arrangement with one of the existing online content providers like netflix or Hulu, a year or so after it finishes


Rather funny that Ash is trying on corsets to hide his beer/old-age gut.

Both HBO and Showtime have introduced ways to watch their content without having cable or paying for the channel as part of your cable package. You still have to pay for the content though.

With HBO, they are releasing their own "netflix" like option, but I don't think it's available yet (I thought next year?)

At any rate, sounds like either option is going to require subscriptions separate from Hulu and Netflix.

I thought it was for the fall, but wasn't that interested as HBO has nothing I feel compelled to watch and its initially only for Apple.

Showtime on Hulu is this summer, and is eight or nine dollars a month. I'm not sure if you need a plus subscription as well, or just if you want it on your streaming device instead of only on the web.

I think it's grossly overrated as a piece of entertainment and avoid it like the plague. Let me put it like this of Sam Raimi's filmography I'm more likely to sit through Spider-Man 3 again than I am Army of Darkness. I don't begrudge anyone else's love of it but yeah not a fan.


MUST have skateboard cam!


Hail to the king!


I tend to agree with Shin and the other (K)thulhu. :D

While the first movie I ever saw was Army of Darkness, and I enjoyed it, when I finally did get around to seeing the other two, the original is a far superior picture in just about every way. It's actually even scary, whereas they just got campier and campier with the sequels.

That said, if you get a chance, watch Army of Darkness with the running commentary between Bruce and Sam Raimi. I think that's a better way to watch the movie; hilarious behind the scenes discussions with the creators as the movie plays.

Can't Ash just have Gengar and Mewtwo fight the zombies for him?

OTOH, I love Army of Darkness for the camp. Never really cared for Evil Dead. Either of them.

If you like horror movies, you'll probably like Evil Dead better. If you like silly fantasy adventure movies, you'll probably like AoD better. It's not that either is a superior movie, it's that they're different genres trying to do different things.

I love horror, but prefer Army of Darkness and Evil Dead 2. Really...the first Evil Dead was a pretty generic low budget gory horror...the camp element of the later movies is what make the series stand out from its contemporaries.

Meh, if Evil Dead hadn't stood out from it's contemporaries, then Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness would ever have been made. It'd also zap Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, and Rob Tapert back into obscurity.

EXACTLY.

There had been nothing quite like EVIL DEAD at that time. I mean when there's pretty much another movie paying homage to the genre that created in it's title (CABIN IN THE WOODS) it had to have done SOMETHING right.

Also as to it's low budget, for what was done with it's obvious budget constraints and still to have turned out a movie that is referenced 30 years later? That's an achievement.

Just finished Season 2 on Netflix DVD.

Two words for you:

Dueling chainsaw fight!!!


I loved all 3 of the Evil Dead movies (I'll ignore the 2013 remake thingie), so it was with some trepidation that I started watching "Ash vs. Evil Dead." In this case, my concern was misplaced: the show is exactly what a sequel to the movies should have been.

I just finished S2 which, although nowhere near as awesome as S1, still makes me eager for a 3rd season.

spoiler:
I found the episode with Ash in the insane asylum really derivative of the episode of Buffy with Buffy in the insane asylum. It didn't quite go where I thought it was going to go, but I kept thinking it was going to go there, so I felt dread the whole time. But then it got awesome again after that.
