A la their blood brothers over at "The Cabin in the Woods," the 2013 remake of 'Evil Dead,' not satisfied with merely scaring the ever-living s**t out of people for two hours at a time on the big screen, will be its own haunted maze come Halloween at Universal Studios in Orlando or Universal Studios Hollywood.
Someone's excited! (Though I feel like just flashing the above .gif on a projector against the side of the building would do the trick equally, right? Perhaps I speak only for myself?) Get More »

Box Office Report: 'Evil Dead' Hacks Up the Competition

Evil Dead FilmDistrict

It was a knock down, drag out battle at the box office this weekend, but when the smoke cleared it was "Evil Dead" taking the box office, as Fede Alvarez's remake of Sam Raimi's horror classic earned an estimated $26 million according to

That was just enough to top "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" and "The Croods," each of which earned $21.1 million. "Jurassic Park 3D," meanwhile, was a close fourth, bringing in $18.2 million. And for those keeping track, Stephanie Meyer's "The Host" dropped all the way down to eighth place with just $5.2 million, further cementing its status as a massive disappointment.

The 9 Most Badass Artificial Limbs in Movies

At this point, it's common knowledge that fighting off herds of the undead or intergalactic rebels requires more than just a few hand-held weapons. In fact, sometimes it requires more than just hands.

Sure, our limbs accomplish a myriad number of essential tasks every day – walking, kicking holding things, pointing, giving people the finger – but the sad truth is that they'll never be able to spray a hail of bullets or eviscerate enemies on their own. For those special battle-ready features, the body requires a few extra enhancements beyond what God gave you. After all, why replace a leg with a dopey wooden peg when a fully-loaded machine gun will do just fine?

In honor of the "Evil Dead" reboot and the franchise's longtime celebration of weaponized extremities, we've compiled a list of nine characters who turned a lost limb or imminent threat into an opportunity to upgrade their bodies into something far more badass than before.

1. Ash's chainsaw hand from 'Evil Dead II'

It's bad enough when you're fighting legions of demons you unwittingly unleashed from a skin-covered book, but what happens when your own hand becomes possessed and fights against you?  If you're Ash, you get rid of the problem, literally, by promptly hacking off the bedeviled body part. Immediately following his self-amputation, Ash remedies his bloody stump predicament by snapping a fully-functional chainsaw where his hand once existed and iconically christens the end result "Groovy." Audiences emphatically agreed, and after putting his chainsaw hand to good use against the demon armies in "Army of Darkness" a few years later, Ash's brutal new appendage became the envy of handless demon slayers everywhere.

The 10 Best Tributes to 'The Evil Dead'

Book of the Dead Costume Geekologie

Once upon a time, a group of college kids journeyed deep into the woods with a camera, a few bucks, a ton of fake blood and enough creativity and general filmmaking chutzpah to fill a dozen movies. The result was "The Evil Dead," a DIY horror masterpiece and cult phenomenon.

Upon the release of the big-budget remake, itself affectionately titled "Evil Dead," here are some of the best — or should we say grooviest — "Evil Dead" tributes out there. Get More »
