7.19.012 Sam Raimi Talks "Evil Dead":
At this years Comic-Con Sam Raimi stopped by MTV News to talk about his new film "Oz the Great and Powerful" but when asked about the upcoming
"Evil Dead" remake and whether or not the new flick 'honors' the original, the Filmmaker had this to say:
"I don't think about it like that. I just think Fede Alvarez has really made a great horror movie," he said. "It's scary. The actors are great
in it. It's really gut-wrenching, real low budget and intense."

leads to danger and horror...

6/14/02 Campbell not so sure about Evil Dead 4!
Despite Sam Raimi's recent indications he'd like to use some of his new SPIDER-MAN pull in Hollywood and move forward with
the long awaited sequel to EVIL DEAD, well it looks like that might not be as done a deal as we all hope. At least, according to series star Bruce Campbell.
"Well, when I've got a call time and a shooting schedule, I'll believe it", Campbell recently said when asked about the upcoming flick.
In a recent interview Sam Raimi said he'd be open to another film, but isn't so
sure the market would bear it after all these years...
