There has been some really great news coming out on WonderCon, which is currently taking place in Anaheim, CA, and the latest piece of very exciting news is of all things Evil Dead!

Director of the new film, Fede Alvarez, took the the WonderCon panel with producer and star of the original series Bruce Campbell, along with members of the cast of the new film, including Jane Levy. Alvarez dropped a huge bombshell of the potential future plans for even more Evil Dead films.

We all know that Sam Raimi and his brother are currently getting prepped to start writing a fourth Evil Dead film which will follow on from Army of Darkness, and that that particular film will now be called Army of Darkness 2. While speculation continues over which ending of Army of Darkness it will follow, should the film be successful (and why wouldn’t it) and should Alvarez’ be successful (again, why wouldn’t it), then there are massive plans for the Evil Dead universe.

Campbell stressed his determination to see it happen, and Alvarez agreed that based on the success of Evil Dead, then there are plans for Alvarez to make a sequel to his re-boot, while Sam Raimi brings Campbell back and makes Army of Darkness 2. The plan then (and here is where it gets REALLY interesting) is to make a SEVENTH film which will tie both Raimi’s Ash universe and Alvarez’ re-boot series together. Now, how cool is that!

Directed by Fede Alvarez, Evil Dead has been written by Alvarez, Sam Raimi, Rodo Sayagues and Diablo Cody. Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”) as Mia; Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood) as David; Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) as Eric; Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) as Olivia; and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) as Natalie all appear, and Bruce Campbell is also onboard as a producer with Sam Raimi.

The Evil Dead is due to arrive in UK cinemas 18th April 2013.


In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they 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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
