Bruce Campbell promises “Evil Dead” is a “horror extravaganza”


Posted by on

If “Evil Dead” sucks, Bruce Campbell is going to have a lot of explaining to do.

The actor has been one of “The Evil Dead” remake’s most vocal supporters and, during an interview with Machinima at New York Comic-Con, he reinforced his love for this new movie. Fede Alvarez takes over directing duties from former helmer Sam Raimi, and Campbell promised it will be true to the spirit of the original.

“The movie’s not funny. The movie is old-fashioned, retro horror. There’s not a snappy line in the whole movie,” Campbell explained, though he had plenty of “snappy lines” of his own during the interview. “The first movie wasn’t like that, and this is a remake of the first movie, so he’s really just matching the tone of the first movie, which is not, ‘Hardy har har.'”

Campbell doesn’t have a role in “Evil Dead,” but he is acting as producer. He helped pull together the movie’s “great cast” and is now helping Raimi supervise the post-production.

“We want to custom make it for fans. We’re not some random cigar-chomping producer looking for a horror movie to remake. This is our baby,” he said. “I can’t wait. I want people to see it. I’m dying.”

The first footage shown at NYCC seemed to win over fans with its gruesome scale, and Campbell — who has seen the movie’s finished product — teased that’s just a taste of what’s to come. We can also see that in the teaser for tomorrow’s “Evil Dead” trailer, seen below.

“It’s going to be a horror extravaganza, not in size, just in the intensity of the horror you will experience. This movie, it’s going to blow the freaking doors off,” he said. “Five new actors and a nasty book they should have let alone. The rest is cinematic history.”

“Evil Dead” is due in theaters on April 12.

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.
