‘The Evil Dead’ 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2018

Perhaps the best horror film of all time and most certainly the most magnificent cult film of all time that gave us Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi to the world – ‘The Evil Dead‘ from 1981 is truly an extraordinary movie. This super low budget film with tons of gore spawned two sequels, a remake, and even a very successful 3-season tv series on Starz, not to mention countless toys, comics, and video games based off the film. Sam Raimi was just in his 20s when he made this movie with his family and friends, all shot on location in the middle of the woods, much to the chagrin of the actors. They powered through it and it became a huge success with big financing for a movie of this caliber and a winning review from the horror master himself Stephen King.

‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ Season 3 Trailer is Groovy!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 18th, 2018

‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ Season 3 is returning to Starz on February 25th with 10 new episodes in what looks like the best season yet of the bloody-as-hell, hilarious, and best show in the entire world. I never thought I needed to hear Bruce Campbell say that he used his chainsaw hand to kill demons and monsters, but now he uses it to slash prices at his new job. I nearly died.

Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 2 Has A Trailer! Groovy!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

catchup_2560x1440

October is just three months away, which means ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead‘ Season 2 is coming to Starz again. All I can say is “GROOVY”! Well, I can also say that I can’t wait for this second season, because the first season was so good, and it had everything I ever wanted in a show, including blood, monsters, demons, romance, and Bruce Campbell. (Take a deep breath.) Sorry, I got excited. Starz has unveiled a Season 2 trailer and it looks damn good. I might just put season one on loop along with ‘Army of Darkness‘ until then to prepare for the next season. Enjoy the new trailer.

TV Show Review: ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead’ Ep. 2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 6th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Ash-vs-Evil-Dead-main

Ash vs. Evil Dead‘ had such a perfect pilot episode, that it would be difficult to follow that up with something as good. Luckily for all of us rabid fans, the second episode titled ‘Bait‘ doesn’t lose any steam whatsoever and packs as much if not more blood, guts, and hilarious one-liners from Ash (Bruce Campbell) in this second episode. It’s no wonder that Starz has already given this series a second season. It’s that good.

Groovy news, everyone. Basically a week before the first episode will air, ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead‘ has already been picked up for a second season by Starz. This news comes on the same day that everyone that worked on ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead‘ will be hitting the red carpet in Hollywood for their premiere. Needless to say, this is a damn fine day indeed.

TV Show Review: ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead’ Ep. 1!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

Ever since the mid 90’s, which was when I was introduced to Bruce Campbell and ‘Army of Darkness‘, I’ve chosen to live a life that as both of these elements in them. I have a variety of artwork, books, props, and every home video release of the ‘Evil Dead‘ trilogy sitting on my shelf, not to mention clothing and other movie artifacts. I even named my comic book store and media outlet ‘Boomstick Comics‘, which you’ve all been coming to and reading about entertainment for the past six years. Needless to say, this movie franchise has definitely had a profound effect on me.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

If there’s one thing we love here at Boomstick Comics, it’s news that deals with anything ‘Evil Dead‘ or Bruce Campbell. Luckily today, we got both, in that Starz released a new trailer for their upcoming series ‘Ash VS Evil Dead‘ starring the man god himself Bruce Campbell. We’ve written about this series so many times, whether it be casting, poster art, news, and trailers, and we will NEVER stop.

The Best Trailer You’ll See is ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

11070925_426786627503135_1142696551623537268_n

Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up. The full-length trailer for ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead‘ series on Starz is finally here, which debuted at Comic Con. This is basically the sequel to ‘Army of Darkness‘ we have all been waiting for and it looks like it’s going to be the best show to even air on pay cable. Bruce ‘man-god’ Campbell is in great shape and still has the Ash character down pact. This looks scary, funny as hell, gory, entertaining, and chock full of glorious one-liners that I just don’t know what I’ll do until the series airs this Fall. So grab your chainsaw and Boomstick and enjoy this Incredible trailer. I’ve watched it more than a baker’s dozen times already.

Bruce Campbell is back as Ash. He’s re-attaching the chainsaw and gripping his boomstick once again as he faces a deadite invasion after a 30 year lull in the action. Starz is taking the exciting world that gave us three Evil Dead films and re-sizing it for the small screen and we’ve got some of the first images from the set.

‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’ Teaser Trailer is Here! Groovy!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 29th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

ash-vs-evil-dead-slice-600x200

You know how Bruce Campbell always said “Don’t ask about ‘Evil Dead IV’, because it isn’t happening?” Well, don’t take that to the bank, because it is definitely happening in the form of a TV series called ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead‘ for the Starz network. The show will star Bruce Campbell as Ash again and is a sequel to ‘Army of Darkness‘ (the best film ever made). This teaser trailer doesn’t show much, but it does have blood and a chainsaw in it, plus Campbell’s voice, which makes me all sorts of giddy. The series is shooting in New Zealand right now, and we expect more videos very soon. We can’t wait.

Hey guys, Jana here,

For years, fans of the cult horror film franchise ‘The Evil Dead‘ may have uttered Ash’s line,  “You bastards, why are you torturing me like this? Why?” when we hear rumblings of new films in the works. Starz has made an announcement today that will breathe new life into the dead series.

Hey Deadites, Jana here,

 

 

evil-dead-movie-poster-small

 

 

Who hasn’t heard the age-old story of a couple of buddies heading out into the woods, evil woods, fumbling around looking for a cabin. Instead of a relaxing break from the mundane, they discover the ‘Necronomicon‘, or basically the ‘Book of the Dead‘. It’s not just a book in a dead language, there’s a taped translation of the text! How lucky could they be, right?! Instead of staying away from the creepy vibes that have to be emanating from this unholy tome, they do what a handful of morons would do and play the thing! Of course, this releases an evil so heinous that one by one the moronic teens are possessed until it’s down to one to defeat the evil dead and survive the night.

Bruce Campbell Will Star in ‘Evil Dead’ Series!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 29th, 2014
Hey guys, Jana here,

Looks like Sam Raimi was holding a little something back when he spoke about his ‘Last Of Us‘ project at Comic-Con. Raimi was excited about his new project, and added a little info that he and his brother, Ivan Raimi were co-writing ‘The Evil Dead‘ TV show with Bruce Campbell. While this is  great news for fans of ‘The Evil Dead‘, it managed to get even better. How could this get better? Campbell, who was the star of the original trilogy, confirmed on Twitter that he intends to star in the series!

The guy who directed the awesome reboot of ‘The Evil Dead‘ is set up to direct ‘Dante’s Inferno‘ for Universal Pictures, which is based on the EA video game that came out a few years ago and the famous book. ‘Dante’s Inferno‘ played out a lot like ‘God of War‘ in the video game format, and was left open for a big sequel.

Holy smokes, if you’re a horror fan, you need to see this film immediately.  Most of us are familiar with the Sam Raimi masterpiece, The Evil Dead.  The 2013 version is a remake, make no mistake about that, but it is one of the few remakes that actually holds ground with the original source material.

Ben Chimes In With His ‘Evil Dead’ Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 5th, 2013

Ben K., Here….

Evil-Dead-2013-1

As Fede Alvarez’s remake of the Sam Raimi horror classic came to a close, I heard a guy behind me mutter, “It was just a gorefest.” I resisted the urge to ask, “What exactly were you expecting?” When The Evil Dead came out back in 1981, was it not a gorefest? Was Evil Dead 2 not a gorefest? If by “just a gorefest” he meant that it lacked the humor of the original films, then perhaps he has a point. Gone were the many hat tips to The Three Stooges seen in Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness (aside from the “Fake Shemps” listed in the credits). The “Ashisms” were nowhere to be found until after the credits rolled. Still, for the fans who have been there from the beginning, this was more than a gorefest, indeed.

Film Review: ‘Evil Dead’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 4th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

evil-dead-remake

My name is Bryan Kluger and I’m an ‘Evil Dead-aholic’.  One of my life defining moments in film was the very first time I saw ‘Army of Darkness‘. It was on VHS right when it was released on home video in the early 90s. It blew my fragile mind. I never knew a film could exist that had everything I ever wanted in a movie in the span of 90 minutes. It had thrills, monsters, demons, romance, comedy, action, a boomstick and a chainsaw. What else could someone want? I had to find out everything I could about this movie and soon figured out there were two film that proceeded it. Those films were ‘The Evil Dead‘ and ‘The Evil Dead II‘.

‘The Evil Dead’ Receives an NC-17 Rating!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 28th, 2013

Hi Bryan Here….

evil-dead-2013-1

The remake of ‘The Evil Dead‘ officially received an NC-17 rating, which by all of the reports we’ve written about and the producers talking how intense it is, I can believe it.  And when I saw the red band trailer, it completely confirmed it.  This remake is going to be one scary motherfucker. Unfortunately, if a film wants to make any sort of money at the box office, it can’t be rated NC-17, as most theater chains won’t show NC-17 movies.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is yet another trailer for a film I would pay $1 million dollars to see right now.  This is a green band trailer, meaning it is suitable for audiences and less violent than the red band trailer we posted a couple of weeks ago, which you can view HERE.  While not as much gore, this trailer is still scary as all hell and made me want to hide under the covers and scream in the fetal position with my thumb in my mouth.  Plus, it has some new footage too that we haven’t seen yet.  I can’t wait to see this, and this film’s premiere at SXSW this year might be the only reason I want to head down there.  Enjoy the trailer below.

Fede Alvarez, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell have just released the brand new red band trailer for their revamp of ‘The Evil Dead‘, one of my favorite films of all time.  This 2nd trailer just goes all out.  It’s scary as hell, very tense, frightening, with enough blood for grandma, and some familiar creepy dialogue.  I’ve watched three times already, and will probably watch 100 times more.  I cannot wait for this film.  Enjoy the trailer below.  Looks like this will be the scariest film of the last ten years.

Hi Bryan Here….

Evil Dead 2.  Possibly one of the greatest films ever made.  It has a 98% Fresh rating on rotten tomatoes.  This sequel to the Sam Raimi horror gore fest, is pretty much a re-telling of the first film with a bigger budget and an added humor in the vein of Three Stooges.  This humor and horror mix nicely to bring you one of the best thrill rides of your life.  And let me just say, it seems that they went back to the original negatice of the film and cleaned it all up for this release.  It looks AMAZING.  The best it has ever looked.  This gets my highest recommendation.  Get it.

Evil Dead Blu-Ray Review

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 9th, 2010

The Movie: The epic legendary film that spawned Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness and gave the world Bruce “Man-God” Campbell.  Riddled with humor, genuine scary moments, and buckets upon buckets of blood and gore bring you this amazing achievement in movie making.  This marks the directorial debut of Sam Raimi.  Known to most as the director of the Spider-Man movies.


This movie was made on a budget that would equal the coffee supply on a James Cameron movie for one day.  It was made with friends and family over the matter of twelve weeks and sometimes only having a crew of five people and that was including actors.  Sam’s creative use of the camera and genuine talent for terror blasted this film to cult status quickly.


The story you have seen and heard a million times before.  Group of college kids got to a remote cabin in the woods for a weekend for some fun and romance and they unearth a horrible EVIL that possesses the living into flesh eating cannibals who can fly.  The only way to kill one of these undead people is by total dismemberment.


Our hero of the movie is not your typical hero.  He is a man played by Bruce Campbell named Ashley Williams who works at S-Mart in the housewares section.  Just a regular guy who basically gets tortured throughout the movie.


Bruce Campbell and his chin are fantastic throughout this film and the two that followed.  He brings his charm and one liners that have stood the test of time and will continue to do so.


Evil Dead deserves the most consideration and adoration.  Not only because it was made by friends on a cheap budget, but for how creative everyone was with what they had and how it is a genuine awesome film in every way and still continues to be one of the scariest films and goriest films of all time.


The Packaging: Brought to you by Anchor Bay in this Limited Edition bluray/dvd 2-disc set, the bluray is on BD50 and the second disc has all of the special features.  Once at the great full motion menu screen you can choose between two aspect ratios.  1.33:1 and 1.85:1.  One is enhanced and one is not.  The enhanced one, well, enhances the original copy so it is not so shaky.  But you know the shakiness of it all makes it that much better.


The Picture and Sound: This is by far the best copy of this movie I have ever seen and heard and believe me there has been tons of releases of this movie.  The blacks are incredibly deep and accurate and shadows are better than expected.  There is still grain but by no means does it take away from the picture itself and it adds to the gritty cinematic experience.  There is excellent saturation in color throughout the film and this is a prime example of how HD transfers should be.  I’m speaking to you “Asshole” George Lucas.  The vocals are beautifully precise and clear and never overwhelmed by stinging loud pops or action scenes.  The off screen atmospheric sounds are astounding and gives the film it’s frightening presence.  For fans of this film, this truly is the ultimate edition to own.  Again, it has never sounded or looked this great.


The Extras: Anchor Bay releases a 2nd disc of features that could be found on all the previous discs before.  Sad I know, but this tells me that this is not the final all Ultimate Edition of Evil Dead we will see.  Quite a bit of fun in these extras.

The only thing new on here is on the blu ray disc which has new commentary with Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, and Rob Tapert which is exclusive to this bluray release.  Now if you have not heard Bruce Campbell commentary before, his commentaries on movies are legendary.  They are roll on the floor laugh out loud funny.  It is a highly informative track that covers funny anecdotes and the horrors of making this film over four years.  I will say this is not the funniest commentary I have heard for it, but it is worth it.

A 54 minute documentary of interviews of some of the cast and other filmmakers of the horror genre weigh in on their love for the movie.  It is called “One by One We Will Take You: The Untold Saga of The Evil Dead”.  You will see some very cool behind the scenes acting and flubs, the history of making the movie, and the reaction to the movie upon release.

Next is “The Evil Dead: Treasures from the Cutting Room Floor” which is an hour long of deleted scenes and alternate takes which some I have never seen before.  some really cool gory stuff in here.  A must watch.

Then onto “The Ladies of the Dead Meet Bruce Campbell” which is where Bruce sits down with the three ladies of the film in present time and discuss the making of the movie.  Tons of hilarious anecdotes and confessions are made here.  Very entertaining. This runs about 30 minutes.

Next is “Discovering The Evil Dead” which is a cool feature that tells in 13 minutes how this movie made history and went on to success.

Next up is the 20 minute “Unconventional” which has the stars joined by Rob Tapert and Ted Raimi now and shows them discussing their insights and careers in the horror genre.  Really great watch.

The 12 minute “At the Drive-In” extra shows the entire cast at an outdoor screening of Evil Dead in Chicago giving away dvds to fans who answer trivia.  Pretty funny.

This 30 minute “Reunion Panel” is an extension of the previous extra which is basically a Q&A session.  Great great stuff here.

This short two minute feature entitled “The Book of the Dead: The Other Pages” shows Ash looking through the entire book and seeing every page.  Really creepy and cool artwork you have never seen.

An even shorter 1 minute make up test is shown.

Trailers of the film.


This is a must own for any fan of the horror genre or Bruce Campbell fan.  This bluray looks tip top and I am looking forward to showing friends this after midnight.

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion was written by Dan Moran.)

The fifth installment of Disney’s nearly $4 billion dollar franchise is a Pirates movie through and through. It is about 20 minutes too long, has a needlessly complex plot, fantastic action set pieces, and way too many characters. I found it to be a real roller coaster viewing experience, where some points I was loving every single second of what was on screen and others I wanted to check my phone to see how much longer was left. There were no scenes in this entire movie that I was just ‘Ok’ with. I was either loving it or tolerating it. When it was all over I was pleased with the ending and, more importantly, that it ended.

Sweet, because it will look amazing in 4K finally. Bitter, because the wallet will take a big hit.

With films like ‘The Blair Witch‘, ‘The Evil Dead‘, ‘The Cabin in the Woods‘, and yes – even ‘Jurassic Park‘ – why would anyone want to subject themselves to monsters, demons, dinosaurs, or a witch? It seems fairly obvious to stay out of the woods for an extended period of time. Just stick to city parks, right? In ‘Devil in the Dark‘, we follow two brothers head out into the British Columbia wilderness for a long hunting trip. Vancouver is a nice city, full of everything you need. Why would anyone venture out into the vast and mysterious wilderness of B.C., even when you’ve had experience with supernatural phenomenons before? This does not stop brothers Clint (Dan Payne) and Adam (Robin Dunne) from taking that trek into the woods.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Daredevil

In the category of most anticipated TV returns, we can count the second season of Netflix’sDaredevil‘ among that list. The story of Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen who moonlights as a vigilante has been an intriguing series that I’ve not been able to get enough of. I’m more excited for season 2. Not only because it’s a gripping storyline, but because of the inclusion of a new character this season.

Angelic Heel Once More!

Wars were fought and won in spectacular fashion on WWE’s Battleground! The night was an intense emotional roller coaster that kept the WWE Universe guessing. The WWE Superstars brought everything in their arsenal to destroy their opponents and the results were amazing matches from all involved. But as always, all is fair when it comes to the wars fought in the squared circle, and the sins of the past would come back to haunt some while others dodged bullets. Did you miss Battleground (shown on the WWE Network)? No worries, your Angelic Heel has you covered!

‘The Doctor and the Devils’ Blu-Ray Review!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 19th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

doctoranddevils

 

THE FILM

The Doctor and The Devils‘ is a gothic thriller from the same production company that issued ‘The Fly‘, ‘Spaceballs‘ and ‘Robin Hood: Men in Tights‘ – Brooksfilms. Until I researched a little for this review, I didn’t even realize Mel Brooks‘ company made anything other than the classic hilarity his name automatically recalls. Brooks picked up the script from legendary poet Dylan Thomas, wherein the story of true life grave robbers, Burke and Hare is told. Maybe it was Brooks’ success with ‘The Elephant Man‘ that led him back to the surgical-experimentation game, whatever the conditions were, ‘The Doctor and The Devils‘ did not receive the same praise.

Film Review: ‘Dead Snow 2’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 29th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

dead_snow_01

Some films are destined to become Oscar fodder. They are created, carefully crafted, to become instant nominees for the next award show. From the concept and design to the casting choices, nothing is left to chance. The same could be said for cult classics. Some films achieve cult status by being so horrendously awful that they circle around the giant, invisible wheel of crap back around to becoming great again. Still, other films seem as destined for cult status as those reaching for the awards. There is nothing stellar in these films. The acting won’t move you. The set designs often look like they were conceived on used McDonald’s napkins hours before the cameras start rolling. The concepts are the stuff of giving a teenager mountains of sugar, blindfolding them, spinning them around, and having them throw darts at a board full of random plot devices. Dead Snow 2 is such a film. You might think this to be a bad thing, but when such an endeavor is crafted with the same love and care as the Oscar contenders, something stupidly magical happens and cult status is achieved.

Good Afternoon ‘Walking Dead‘ fans. If you were like me and had not read the comic, then you walked away from last nights episode shocked and a little saddened. There’s a lot of information is this episode so let’s get to it. Outside of the prison, Rick and Hershel are telling Darryl about the deal with the Governor to trade Michonne for peace. Daryl ask if Rick is going to tell the others and he says he will after it’s over with. He asks Daryl to keep it quiet. The plan is to lure her away from the others and then ambush her.

Good afternoon ‘Walking Dead‘ fans.  I hope that you enjoyed the episode last night. There are only three more left until the season finale so every scene, in every episode, is jam packed with vital information. Let’s get to it. Rick, Hershel and Daryl pull up to an abandon grain silo and factory. Hershel is staying in the car as watch. Daryl and Rick are making their way, gun and bow up, through the silos. Hershel looks down to make sure the guns that are strapped to his leg are ready to go. Rick and Daryl continue to run on the property. They come to a building. Rick walks inside the building and Daryl stays outside to keep watch.  There is a table with a couple of chairs already set up. The Governor walks out from behind the shadows and holds his hands up to show he is not armed. He says that we have a lot to talk about.

Hi, Bryan Here….

On October 10th, the ‘Daredevil’ right will revert back to Marvel from 20th Century Fox.  So it’s in Fox’s best interest to start production on a ‘Daredevil’ reboot.  Marvel has been discussing this project with Fox chairman Tom Rothman about keeping the ‘Daredevil’ story with Fox past its October 10th deadline, because it looks like Fox is lining up director Joe Carnahan to direct the reboot.

Hi, Bryan Here….

One of my favorite characters from the ‘Walking Dead’ books is that of Michonne.  Michonne is a female zombie killer to put it lightly.  She wields a kitana blade and is extremely deadly.  She is a complete badass.  Well now AMC has cast its Michonne, and it is none other than Danai Gurira.  You might have seen her in HBO’s ‘Treme’.

Hi Bryan Here….

TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL is a hilariously gory, good-spirited horror comedy, doing for killer rednecks what Shaun of the Dead did for zombies. Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated mountain house, who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. TUCKER AND DALE VS EVIL has been a hit on the festival circuit, debuting at Sundance, and winning the Midnight Audience Award at SXSW, the Jury Prize for First Feature at Fantasia, the Best Director award at Fantaspoa, and the Best Motion Picture Award at Sitges.

Bryan Reviews ‘Dead Alive’!!! (A Blu-Ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

“I KICK ASS FOR THE LORD”!!!  Ahhhhh, finally Peter Jackson’s gore fest is finally on bluray.  This is labeled the goriest film ever made and I must say this is a true statement.  This was Peter Jackson’s answer to Raimi’s Evil DEAD 2.  Jackson perfectly blended horror and comedy and gore all into one brilliant film.  This release is a must own for the sole fact that this is the best the film ever has looked and sounded.  Sadly, there isn’t any extras on the disc sans a theatrical trailer.  Hopefully further down the road there will be an anniversary edition of some sorts with tons of awesome extras.  Would love to see a behind the scenes festurette on this release.

Bruce Campbell makes another appearance on blu-ray

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 30th, 2010

Finally the first in the epic trilogy will be released in High-Definition tomorrow.  Blu ray is so amazing and I cannot wait to see how this movie looks.  I am of course talking about The Evil Dead.  The film that brought Bruce Campbell from ordinary man to a man-god.  He is uncle sam’s favorite actor and he is such a joy to watch in pretty much everything.

Sam Raimi made this film while in college with friends on a low low budget. According to Stephen King it was the Ultimate in Grueling Terror.  He wasn’t lying.

I will update you with my blu ray review of this soon.  Looking froward to the new commentary by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell.

THE FILM


Back in 2009, the brilliant filmmaker Sam Raimi journeyed back to his horror roots and made a fun-as-hell horror-comedy film called ‘Drag Me To Hell‘. For those of you who don’t remember who Sam Raimi is, movies like ‘Evil Dead II‘, ‘Army of Darkness‘, ‘The Spider-Man Trilogy‘, and ‘Darkman‘ are some of his accomplishments. Raimi and his brother and frequent collaborator Ivan Raimi had an idea for a horror film called ‘The Curse‘, but when Raimi booked the ‘Spider-Man‘ gig, that film was put on hold for the next decade. After ‘Spider-Man 3‘ was released, Sam and Ivan went quickly back to their idea to work on a low budget horror film again, which turned into ‘Drag Me To Hell’.

After Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead Trilogy) got done filming ‘Spider-Man‘ movies and a variety of other non-horror projects, the master filmmaker returned to his roots with a fun-as-hell film called ‘Drag Me To Hell‘, which mixed his unique style of silly humor and ultimate terror. The film was released in 2009 and was a return to form for Raimi, before he got on board with revamping ‘The Evil Dead‘ in TV series form. The new collector’s Edition Blu-ray will be available on February 13th and have theatrical and unrated cuts of the film, a new transfer, and new interviews with the cast. Prior bonus features will also be available here too. I can’t wait for this one.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Gate’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 21st, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 2.17.28 PM

THE FILM

The 1980s were very good to us horror buffs in the form of films. We were introduced to Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, Re-Animator, John Carpenter’sThe Thing‘, ‘The Shining‘, ‘Child’s Play‘, ‘The Lost Boys‘ and the wonderful world of ‘Evil Dead‘ to name just a few. I guess you could say that the 80’s gave us some of the very BEST horror films ever made. One of the 80’s horror films that is just as good and as fun as the above mentioned movies, but rarely gets a mention is the 1986 film ‘The Gate‘, directed by Tibor Takacs.

Film Review: ‘Monster Trucks’!

Joel H., here…

monster-trucks-movie-cgi-creature

Remember what it was like to dream? I’m not referring to our current dreams of better jobs, or more money, or a new car, but dreaming without restriction? As a kid, I dreamed several times of experiencing that bicycle flight in front of the moon with E.T. at the helm. I dreamed of discovering pirate gold and sneaking a kiss from my older brother’s girl like Mikey. I sat in spaceships and fighter jets made of cardboard boxes. I gave life and personality to a slew of GI Joe’s, even little green army men with no functional limbs. I dreamed. There was no lack of depth to those dreams. No impending Trump administration. No knowledge that the guns used for pretend are replicates of actual war machines taking lives every single day. My simple imagination was rampant without knowing otherwise, but I grew up.

FILM REVIEW: “THE GREASY STRANGLER”

by Justin Cline on Sep 26th, 2016

Justin C. here,..

Correct me if I’m wrong, but at one time the term “cult film” referred to a movie that failed at the box office during its initial release but eventually found its niche, either through home video release (The Evil Dead) or midnight screenings (The Rocky Horror Picture Show). Nowadays, it seems as if certain filmmakers have grown disinterested in commercial success and are instead targeting that fringe audience they consider underserved by mainstream fare.

Such is the case with The Greasy Strangler. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Stephen Lang stars in Screen Gems' horror-thriller DON'T BREATHE.

Fede Alvarez burst onto the scene a few years ago with his short film on YouTube called ‘Ataque de Pánico!‘ It was so well received and well done that a few weeks later, Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Rob Tapert were calling him non-stop and even offered the Uruguayan filmmaker the chance to direct the remake of ‘The Evil Dead‘, which came out 2013 to rave reviews and fan appreciation for what it was. Since then, Fede has a few projects in the works coming up, as he is one of the top new filmmakers to watch in the horror genre.

The major Hollywood studios are in a giant bidding war for the rights to the board game ‘Monsterpocalypse‘, which is a board game from Privateer Press that resembles Guillermo Del Toro’s film ‘Pacific Rim‘, where humans get into giant sized robots to fight large monsters. With the success of ‘Pacific Rim‘, it’s no surprise that a ton of studios want in on this cash cow and make it a franchise project, which is exactly what the studios are looking to do.

There’s a third amigo here too by the name of Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, which is the director of ‘The Tourist’. The company is slated to make at least two films a year with Jackie Chan holding a 60% stake in the studio and the other 40% going to von Donnersmarck and Raimi.

As a writer for Boomstick Comics, we are charged with going to see a lot of movies. I thought that this past year, I saw quite a few. Apparently, with the opening of the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, the movies I saw this past year weren’t all new. There were some that were classic programming at a new venue. What can I say? James Wallace knows that I like (“Sixteen Candles”, “Aliens”, “Big Trouble In Little China”, “True Grit”, and “Conan” just to name a few), but I did see a “Few Good Movies.”

Army-of-Darkness-Poster

Most of you already know that my favorite movie of all time is in fact ‘Army of Darkness‘. It has been my favorite movie since I first saw it back in 1993 where I thought Bruce Campbell could do no wrong. He still hasn’t. ‘Army of Darkness‘ just has everything you’d ever want in a movie, whether it be thrills, chills, one-liners, romance, a chainsaw, or a boomstick. Hell, I even named my comic book store in Dallas, Boomstick Comics after the film. Needless to say, my house is packed with signed posters, books, action figures, and literally every VHS, DVD, and Blu-release of this movie. I think I own this movie and the other ‘Evil Dead‘ films 20 times over now.

Bottom line is that it looks clean, good, with some good scares. On the other hand though, I couldn’t see the “New Vision” (as the poster describes it) in the trailer. It looks literally the same as the original, but updated with mobile phones and newer technology. Don’t worry, the closet, the man-eating tree, and the clown doll show up still.

THE FILM

Would you say “Pumpkinhead‘ three times in the dark in front of a mirror? Of course you would, because you haven’t been a bad girl or boy, have you? I remember seeing ‘Pumpkinhead‘ on VHS back when it came out in the late 80s and fell in love with the horrifying creature known as Pumpkinhead, despite some of the movie’s flaws. Hell, I even owned several of they action figures and toys of Pumpkinhead over the years and every time I come across it in my house, I think, “I better be a good person or Pumkpkinhead will come after me.” Well at least that is what I thought when I was younger. But what most interested me, was the creature itself. And that’s where the late, great legend Stan Winston comes into play.

Top 10 List of Reboots We Don’t Want To See!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Terminator-5-TV-Series


Like Bill Murray once said, “he’s got to be stopped. And I have to stop him.” You might have thought he was talking about a weather-predicting rodent, but no, he was actually talking about studio executives (the “he” is collective). Hollywood, like any business, is in it to make money. Therefore, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that they choose to rehash tried and true film formulas over and over again rather than take a chance on something new. While this is understandable (albeit infuriating), it doesn’t excuse the idea that EVERYTHING deserves to be re-made. Some films, like priceless art, should never be re-made and re-sold. Every time a classic film gets re-made, audiences hold their collective breaths and hope that it won’t be a straight shot in “the feels” (that nostalgic part of your brain that remembers, with fondness, all your pop culture favorites).

Michael “explosion” Bay is releasing his latest bastardization of 80’s culture unto the world in the shape of the beloved “heroes in a half shell”. In case you haven’t been following, this has been one cluster mess after another. From alien origins to white-washed villains, this movie begs the questions: “does Michael Bay hate the 80’s? Did he have some traumatically horrific experience with toys when he was a kid? Why does he have to take a giant dump on our collective fond memories time after time?”  Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Sabotage’!!

Hi, Bryan Here…

sabotage-movie-wallpaper-2014-1366x768

 Arnold Schwarzenegger has been on quite a role since his political career in California. He has come back in full force to the movie world and has given us three films, including this one, with five more projects on the way. Needless to say, he has been busy. The first two films, since his time in the Governor’s chair in California were ‘The Last Stand‘ and ‘Escape Plan‘, both of which were PG-13 action vehicles for Schwarzenegger that had a silly and highly entertaining premise, even though the plots of both films were ridiculous. But in both of those movies, we received Arnold’s famous one-liners and his angry glare as he looks down upon his enemies with a giant machine gun in his hand, ever so ready to add to his impressive body count.

Bryan’s Top 15 Movie List of 2013!!!

Hi, Bryan Here…

2013-best

And here we are, at the very end of 2013. What a year for movies. This was an amazing year for film. There were so many great independent films, documentaries, and movies that were just highly entertaining, that I’ve watched them more than five times already. As usual, as long as I’ve been doing this, my Top Movie list of the year is very different from most everyone else that has made a list. I don’t know why – well I do know, because I’m twisted and crazy. But how I base my list is a variety of factors, not ones that the Oscars base their opinions on, but rather a more humble and fun variety of factors. For example, did this movie make me stand up and slow clap, or did it make me slap the person next to me and yell ‘THAT WAS AWESOME’! It’s those kind of things. So without further delay, I present to you my TOP 15 list for 2013. Let me know if you disagree or agree, love or hate, or just want to say hi. Enjoy.

The ‘World of Warcraft’ Movie Will Be Directed By…..

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 20th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

orc_grunt

Legendary Pictures announced today and the San Diego Comic Con their director for the long awaited live-action version of ‘World of Warcraft’, based on the expansive online game. At one point within the past few years, Sam Raimi was in talks to direct this project, but all of that fell through so he could direct ‘Oz The Great and Powerful‘ and reboot his ‘Evil Dead‘ series. Needless to say, Raimi is no longer involved in the production.

Hi, Bryan Here….

We’ve been hearing about a ‘Poltergeist‘ project for a while now. Seems like this undertaking has gained some steam and has some heavy hitters behind it now, which will be a reboot of the 1982 film, but also a sequel. Gil Kenan is on board to direct, which his big claim to fame was directing the 3D CG animated film ‘Monster House‘, which was followed by ‘City of Ember‘. But get this, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Roy Lee from ‘The Evil Dead‘ films will produce this ‘Poltergeist‘ reboot.

Hi, Bryan Here…..

MusicSheetOldBloodFILMS

Mondo has only released a handful of soundtracks on vinyl since they first opened online, but this year they are hitting the ground full force with releasing more amazing movie soundtracks on the best quality format to listen to music. So far this year we have had ‘Poltergeist‘, ‘The Deadly Spawn‘, and the recent ‘Drive‘ soundtrack, which sold out in record time in under 30 minutes. And just this past week, they sold out of their newest soundtrack, ‘Oblivion‘, which has an amazing score. The cover artwork is amazing and the sound is even better with their releases. Mondo clearly knows what they’re doing when it comes to art and soundtracks.

Film Review: ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

url

A more fitting title for this would have been ‘Oz the Modest and Ineffective’. I have no doubt that this prequel will make tons of money the next two weekends at the box office, although it doesn’t deserve it. Even though you have an all-star cast, an amazing director, and top notch talent around the board, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have quality film in the can. On the contrary, it seems like every bit of life, joy, and entertainment was taken away early on, never to return. This prequel to the iconic and incredible 1939 film might be the top miscast film ever put on screen, and that’s only the beginning.

The Top 26 Film Vehicles!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 27th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Have you ever wanted to own a specific car from a film or television series?  I have compiled a list of my favorite vehicles from films and television series that I want to own someday.  Now, I am excluding spaceships, because that is a whole different list.  This particular list of vehicles all stay on the ground.  It was fun coming up with this list, and I imagine some of you out there actually own these cars or are working on restoring one.  Or just maybe it will give you an idea to make one of these in real life.  Enjoy.
