The “Evil Dead” remake maybe, possibly, could be, might be moving forward

From our Department of Things We’ll Believe When We See Them comes news that after decades of speculation, teases, false starts, empty promises — not to mention flat-out groveling from fans — a new “Evil Dead” movie might actually be happening. Might be. Let me repeat that. Might be. Again, this is from our Things We’ll Believe When We See Them Department, the people who brought you such classic movie news stories as Quentin Tarantino’s joint “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction” sequel and John Turturro’s “Big Lebowski” sequel featuring Jesus Quintana.

Here is what we think we kind of know at this point. Dread Central reports a “reliable source” tells them that Bob Murawaski, editor and frequent collaborator of Sam Raimi “has packed up and headed out to Detroit to begin work on the long talked about fourth entry into the Evil Dead franchise, which will be ‘a small indie thing like the first two.'” They’ve coupled this nugget of information from a recent tweet from “Evil Dead” star Bruce Campbell that reads, in part, “The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell.”

Well then, it must be happening! Let’s all start camping out for tickets right now.

I was around for the early days of the “Evil Dead” cult. Back then the rumors about a fourth “Evil Dead” were out of control, mostly because the third film, “Army of Darkness,” had just come out on DVD with an alternate cliffhanger ending. Folks, that was almost fifteen years ago. “Evil Dead 4” rumors are so old they’re practically ready to get their driver’s license.

Would I love to see another “Evil Dead?” If Raimi and Campbell are involved, absolutely. But I’ve been waiting so long for this movie, I’m past believing it when I see it. At this point, even when I see it I won’t believe it. I’ll just assume I’m dreaming or the victim of some evil Deadite plot or something.

What do you think? Will we ever see another “Evil Dead” movie? Or is life just a series of horrible, crushing disappointments? Tell us in the comments below or on Facebook and Twitter!


Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
