    How hard could it possibly be for him to put together 30 mill for Evil Dead 4 at this point? Common response probably, "he doesn't want to do it". Well do something, for fucks sake.
    Raimi produced the "Ash vs Evil Dead" show...? Each season was essentially a 5 hour "Evil Dead" movie.

    Can't remember the details but I swear there was something new in the works recently.

    There is. Raimi said something during his promotion of Crawl.

    It’s not, though.

    They’re cult successes, not big commercial hits.

    Even the TV show got moved around repeatedly due to low viewership before finally being cancelled.

    Horror fanatics eat it up, but standard movie goers have no clue who Ash is.

    Just rewatched Blair Witch Project. I noticed the producer is Gregg Hale - and there's a Gilligan's Island reference. I have to think this guy is related to Alan Hale Jr from that show. Anyway, I think the movie stands up. I've never seen anything else like it still. When I saw it in the premier my knees were shaking while we were talking about it afterwards in the cinema lobby even though we all knew it wasn't real.

    Sam Raimi doesn't have to direct anything if he doesn't want to. The Ash vs Evil Dead show was great and a fun end to Campbell playing the character.

    Crawl looks decent-I'll probably rent it.

    The Blair Witch Project is a really good horror flick, and is one of those films that fits in with fall very well. I also remember people wondering if the movie was real.

    Thanks I didn't realize in America you were allowed to not do things you didn't want to do.

    Wow, I guess you're right. Box Office Mojo confirms. I guess I spend too much time in my bubble groups .

    That being said, Raimi should pretty well have free reign to direct whatever he wants, right? After Spider-Man? Maybe not 100 mill + budgets, but surely he could secure medium budgets on his name alone?

    Yeah, I would agree with this. Few people outside film buff circles value Evil Dead or Raimi in general.

    Wishing a director would do something isn’t the same thing as demanding they do something though. No one’s forcing him back into the director’s chair against his will. *shrug*

    "I died for you...Why shouldn't you return the favor?"

    Deathdream (1974) both updates and retains The Monkey's Paw's simple devastating power with some heady and pointed Vietnam allegory, as brazenly unsubtle as a film released in the tail end of that era can get (away) in conveying its rage and grief. All wrapped in Bob Clark's unpolished, unnervingly raw horror filmmaking, as effective as it is in his more famous Black Christmas the same year. The film also somehow manages to modernize that short story's ending into its own kind of heartbreaker, different but haunting and lingering in the same way. 8/10

    Between The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Bob Clark's two films, 1974 is turning out to be quite a nice turnout for American horrors.
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Has anyone watched Eli Roth's History of Horror on AMC? It's pretty cool. Breaks horror down into subgenres w/ one per episode except slashers which gets two episodes, the second episode going into '90s serial killers and meta commentary slashers (read: Scream) and '00s so-called torture porn. The other subgenres are zombies, demonic possession, killer creatures / monsters, vampires, and ghosts. Interviews with a ton of various filmmakers and academics (Tarantino, John Landis, Joe Dante, Jordan Peele, Rob Zombie, among others). Say what you want about Eli Roth's movies, but the guy is a true blood horror fan and keeps things entertaining. Most of it is post 1970 stuff, and it tends to gloss over a lot of the classic Universal period of horror, but given Roth's age and fandom, it's understandable that there's a lot of '80s and '90s stuff here. Occasionally has strange choices (30 Days of Night is featured but no Near Dark for vampires?).
