Our Adorable Past

Lego Minifigs of the 80s You Dreamed Of

Travel back in time with us again, but this time to a version of the 80s that never actually existed. Lego’s pretty into the licensed tie-in these days, but kids of the 80s had no such luck. Designer/artist Dan Shearn seeks to rectify this, if only in the form of .jpgs images.

Dead Serious: Blood, Guts, and Casual Sexism Splatter Evil Dead

When the tortured and bloodied bodies of adolescents strewn willy-nilly across a widescreen isn’t the thing making you uncomfortable in a theater, you know something, somewhere has gone wrong. Based on the camp classic original, (more about that in a moment) the new Evil Dead, in a surprising homage to the film that ‘inspired’ it, is a movie that isn’t aware that it’s bad. A tonal slog that’s a bare-faced unpleasant time (and in not the way it’s intended), Evil Dead has some good cringe-worthy moments, and some things about it that just made me cringe. Read on for a chilling tale of guts, gore, false advertising, VFX lauding, and how the tired trope of casual sexism can be a real bore.

Contains spoilers, as well as some specific mentions of R-rated gory violence. Chances are, if you weren’t going to watch the films for the sake of your tastes or stomach, you might not want to read this.

New Green Band Evil Dead Trailer Gives Us All of the Creepiness, Less of the Gore [VIDEO]

I can’t be the only one who chose not to wath the red band Evil Dead trailer. If I recall correctly, I was going to watch it, but then I heard how, er, intense it is, and I was eating an early lunch, and… look, it just didn’t seem like a good call at the time, is what I’m saying.

So here’s a green band trailer—a.k.a. one that’s much more likely to play in an actual movie theater and is therefore lighter on the particularly gruesome stuff—for A) my fellow wimps, or B) your general person who’s looking forward to the Evil Dead remake. It may not have a lot of blood, guts, and body mutilation, but it’s still creepy as hell.

Our First Poster for the Remade Evil Dead

It’s one thing to remake a classic horror film, but when you do it by giving the formerly male lead role to a female character, you arouse our interest. Here’s the first poster for Evil Dead, the upcoming remake of The Evil Dead.

Things We Saw Today: Jon Hamm & Daniel Radcliffe In A Bathtub?

Well we’ve seen Daniel Radcliffe in a bathtub in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire but this is something different all together. It’s a shot from Radcliffe’s new film with Mad Men star Jon Hamm, A Young Doctor’s Notebook. In it, Radcliffe plays the younger version of Hamm’s character. And this is extremely bizarre.

Evil Dead Red Band Trailer Is Seriously Evil, Seriously Dead, Seriously Red

If you aren’t hip to the whole “red band” thing, allow us to explain. Usually trailers have a “green band,” that bit that comes before the trailer. It means the The Motion Picture Association of America has put their stamp on it to play before films with equal ratings. But trailers that go so far past the point of acceptable language, violence, or sex get a red band. They can be played in theaters with R, NC-17, or unrated films but it doesn’t happen often. Before you hit play, let me just say, the Evil Dead remake trailer should have been given a “plaid band.” Watch at your own risk.

(If you don’t get the plaid reference, I’ve embedded a video to explain after the jump.)

Sam Raimi Gets Court Order To Halt Unauthorized Evil Dead Film

We’d been hearing a lot of serious chatter about an Evil Dead reboot for some time now. It was serious enough that one actress had been cast as the lead, then replaced with anothera male lead being cast as well, and it’s already been completely show. But Sam Raimi, writer and director of the original, was involved in all of that. He wasn’t involved in Evil Dead 4: Consequences, an unauthorized continuation of his horror series. Thankfully, he’s done something about it.
