Update: A denial has been made by one of the filmmakers. Head inside for that was well.
There’s only a few more weeks to go until you can see Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead, the remake to Sam Raimi’s 1981 horror classic that spawned a pair of sequels. The new film stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore and Jessica Lucas… but there’s one addition everyone’s been wondering about, so in honor of Evil Dead Month here we go….
I’m giving you fair warning – this is most definitely a MAJOR SPOILER. In fact I’m going to make it sort of difficult to get to the actual content of this piece because I know how much it sucks to accidentally be spoiled on something. Still, you may want to revisit this story after you’ve seen the film. Bookmark it now.
As a buffer, here’s the synopsis again, “In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.”
FilmDistrict and TriStar will unleash Hell on April 5. Head inside for the SPOILER account of the deleted scene that may or may not be on the film’s home video release! READ MORE
The film is proving to be a commercial hit, having made $21 million dollars on Friday alone. This means a lot of you have likely seen it and are ready to talk about specific events within it, along with what works in the film and what doesn’t. So here’s where my review comes in. It’s full of spoilers and even points out a lot of things that don’t work in the film, but ultimately is certainly favorable. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I’d recommend fixing that before you read this.
“This may read like a bad review at this point, but I actually really like the movie. In fact, I almost love it. But an honest assessment of the film has to acknowledge its shortcomings if I’m going to expect you guys (or myself) to buy into any of this.”
I would love a discussion with you guys about this and I obviously welcome all dissenting comments. So please head inside for the review and feel free to comment or yell or whatever. And, as always, make sure to write your own review as well! READ MORE
The newest international poster for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus brings some old school epic-ness to their campaign. A little 80′s? Maybe. but it’s awesome! However – it might contain a spoiler. Most of the previews show the Space Jockey ship crashing back down to the planet (LV-426?), but this poster might show how it crashes – and it has dire implications for our protagonists. Then again, it could be a metaphor for the gist of the film’s conflict.
“With ‘Prometheus,’ Scott creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”
In theaters June 8, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Benedict Wong, Emun Elliott, Ben Foster, Patrick Wilson all star.
