Movie Issues Review: Evil Dead

The Son of Sam has returned, and his name is Fede Alvarez. Based on the 1981 Cult Classic The Evil Dead directed by Sam Raimi (Wizard of Oz), the newest incarnation Evil Dead released this friday isn’t a remake as many have thought, but rather an intended sequel with A LOT of fan service to the original. Evil Dead still finds a familiar cast of young 20-somethings in a familiar cabin where an evil is released and one by one everyone dies brutal, gory deaths in a film that is relentless from beginning to end.

I like chainsaws.  Do you like chainsaws?  You’d better, because chainsaws are awesome.  They saw through things, make creepy loud noises, and most importantly, they come to the aid of many in times of zombie-related need.  When you’re playing a survival zombie game, you don’t see a chainsaw lying on the ground and think, “Nah, I think I’ll use this frying pan instead.” Oh no, you grab that shit and start chopping away to your heart’s content, sending undead heads and limbs flying in every direction.  Now, what if instead of a hand, you had a chainsaw? Other than having the (trapped and terrified) ladies all over you, you would immediately be promoted to the rank of ultra-badass.  I sincerely hope that those of you who call yourself geeks know exactly who I am talking about.

[BAotW] A Few Mini-BAs to Tide You Over

Hello there children, do you know what day it is?  Why, it’s “Shauna-Gets-To-Be-A-Slacker” Day! So instead of the regular one-badass-per-article standard that I’ve had each week, I’ve decided to do a couple mini-BAotWs just for today. “Why are you so lazy Shauna?” you might ask.  It’s because tomorrow James and I are driving down to Atlanta to meet Bob (aka Dr. DM) to get full media coverage of Dragon*con for all you readers.  We’ll have a TON of new and hopefully breaking news stories and interviews for you while we’re down there, and even more once we get back.  So I have a somewhat legitimate excuse to slack off. HA. Look past the break for a few badasses of the video game world, the film world, and the interweb world. Read On
