There are some new developments in Season 3 of ASH VS EVIL DEAD, Sundays on Starz. Ash (Bruce Campbell) and his friends are still fighting Deadites and demons.

Initially dismayed to learn her dad is the town weirdo, Brandy gradually begins to appreciate and even emulate Ash’s skill at fighting fiends. Santiago is a native New Yorker who has […]Read On »

ASH VS EVIL DEAD: Bruce Campbell talks Season 3 – exclusive interview

ASH VS EVIL DEAD, now in its third season on Starz Sunday nights, represents a very particular sort of career triumph for its star Bruce Campbell. By now, the origin story has gained folklore status: in 1979, Campbell and his friends, director Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert, then young men in Michigan, raised $350,000 to make a low-budget horror film, THE EVIL DEAD, which was released in 1981, starring Campbell as inadvertent demon-summoner Ash Williams. The trio went on to make EVIL DEAD II (1987) and its studio-sponsored follow-up ARMY OF DARKNESS. The friends also came together to make the […]Read On »

ASH VS EVIL DEAD, the Starz series that continues the EVIL DEAD franchise, is back with new demons, new energy and new splatter for its third season starting Sunday, February 25.

ASH VS. EVIL DEAD: Dana DeLorenzo & Ray Santiago talk Season 2 – exclusive interview

In the EVIL DEAD universe, Bruce Campbell’s antihero Ash Williams has always been more or less alone (usually because he’s accidentally managed to get everybody else killed). However, in ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, now in its second season on Starz Sunday nights, Ash has acquired two loyal companions. Pedro Simon Bolivar, played by Ray Santiago, and Kelly Maxwell, portrayed by Dana DeLorenzo, both worked with Ash at a big box store before the place got trashed by Deadites, aka the Evil Dead of the title. Now Kelly is out for vengeance against the Deadites for killing her parents, and Pablo […]Read On »

In Fox Network’s Batman prequel GOTHAM, now in its second season Mondays at 8 PM, Jessica Lucas plays Tabitha Galavan, aka the Tigress. Tabitha is not quite so mad or driven as her already-ruthless and now resurrected brother Theo [James Frain], but she has no qualms about killing and she’s very handy with her whip. Lucas, originally from British Columbia, Canada, has appeared in a lot of genre fare, including the films THE COVENANT and CLOVERFIELD, starring in the EVIL DEAD remake and in the TV series CULT. She was also a regular on the revival of MELROSE PLACE and […]Read On »

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA: Composer Roque Baños on scoring the seas – Interview

If you madly hunt for great composing talents the world over, chances are you’ll hear the particular, vast melodic abilities of one Roque Baños. Hailing from Spain where he’d notably engage in the Spaghetti Western pastiche of 800 BULLETS,  the artistic classicism of GOYA IN BOURDEAUX and the bad cop antics of TORRENTE among the numerous movie he’d score in his home country, Baños first caught American ears with his romantically twisted crime stylings for 2000’s SEXY BEAST and the Herrmann-esque doom of 2004’s Theremin-possessed  THE MACHINIST. It’s been a long, prolific journey to our shores over the years before […]Read On »

The Scoop on ASH VS. EVIL DEAD

Executive producer Robert Tapert, star of the series and executive producer Bruce Campbell along with executive producer Sam Raimi, original filmmakers of the EVIL DEAD franchise, start production on the TV series ASH VS. EVIL DEAD which will premiere this fall on Starz | © 2015 Starz

When best friends director/writer Sam Raimi, producer Robert G. Tapert and actor Bruce Campbell made the short film WITHIN THE WOODS in their native Michigan, they were hoping to make the feature that became 1981’s THE EVIL DEAD. They didn’t realize they were launching a horror franchise that would spawn 1987’s EVIL DEAD II and 1992’s ARMY OF DARKNESS, plus a 2013 remake. They were expecting even less that, in 2015, they’d all be working on the television series ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, which will premiere on Starz later this year. The three men, who have all enjoyed enormous success […]Read On »

In Fox’s GRACEPOINT, which has its first-season finale tonight, Thursday December 11 at 9 PM, the small California coastal town has been all but ripped apart by the murder of young Danny Solano. As in BROADCHURCH, the U.K. series that is GRACEPOINT’s source material, an out of town reporter is one of those most responsible for stirring things up, to the point where one local commits suicide due to a campaign of harassment in the press. Here, the reckless journalist is called Renee Fleming. She’s played by Jessica Lucas, who was also one of the leads in last season’s CULT […]Read On »

Interview: EVIL DEAD composer ROQUE BANOS scares up a score

There are over the top gore films. There are over the top horror scores. And then there is the redo of EVIL DEAD, which does its best to live up to its claim of being “the most terrifying film you will ever experience.” While that debate will be left up to those who survive its blood-splattered roller coaster ride with enough severed limbs to make RE-ANIMATOR  look like REBECCA OF SUNNYBROOK FARM, there will be little argument that Roque Banos’ score is the aural equivalent of a raging exclamation mark, it’s bottom colon fashioned into a knife that repeatedly stabs […]Read On »
