Movie Review: The Evil Dead Remake

Evil Dead Remake 020

 

https://www.facebook.com/evildead

Ahhh….the horror remake, the one thing that stirs up genre fanatics like no other.  Hollywood could pick an obscure horror title and decide to remake it and the fans of horror would shit themselves in a fury.  Pick a bonafide horror cult classic like Evil Dead and the horror community will eat their first born son to make sure they hate it.

My personal views on remakes in general is that I typically don’t mind them so much even though I know Hollywood is trying a bit too hard with them.  My view on horror re-makes is about the same.  I typically don’t mind as long as the movie is solid and offers a good time.  My counterpoint to all the horror fans who complain about their favorite movie being remade and that they should not be done is this…The Thing from John Carpenter.  The Thing is considered one of the greatest horror films and it was a remake.  So to all the horror whiners who hate horror remakes based on just the fact they are a remake…well go look at The Thing and shut up.

So what about our sacred cow of horror, Evil Dead?  Did the filmmakers do a faithful adaptation for the current generation of movie goers while adding something a bit new or did they just roll out a movie for a cash grab?  Well I think they did get some cash to grab from this but boy was it deserved.

ROB ZOMBIE: ‘Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Supertown’ Video Released

The official video for “Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Supertown”, the first single from Rob Zombie‘s eagerly awaited new album, “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor”, can be seen below. Zombie himself directed the clip, which is described by the rocker as “pretty fucking cool.’ He adds: “For all of you hoping for an old-school, weirdo-style Zombie video… well, you are gonna get it. Big time!”

“Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor” will be released on April 23 on Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/Ume. The CD was produced by Bob Marlette, who has previously worked with everyone from BLACK SABBATH and ALICE COOPER to WILSON PHILLIPS and LYNYRD SKYNYRD.

Asked what the story is behing the album’s title, Rob told Revolver magazine: “There’s no real story behind it. I just thought of it one day. With every album I’ve ever made, we’ll get it basically one hundred percent done and everyone will go, ‘OK, what’s the title?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t know what the fuckin’ title is yet. It hasn’t hit me.’ And then one day I’ll just blurt out, ‘La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1!’ or ‘Hellbilly Deluxe!’ It’s the same with this one. I have it written down somewhere, but I don’t remember doing it.”

He added: “Truthfully, the whole record was conceived as a concept album. But I’m not really selling it that way. I was getting obsessed watching things like ‘Tommy’, ‘The Wall’, ‘Quadrophenia’, where you have a movie to go with the album and it’s a whole big concept. So I thought I’d write this album with that in mind: That maybe one day — it could be a year, it could be 10 years — I could turn the concept of this record into a movie. That being said, nothing about the concept of the record will make any sense to anyone until it’s a movie. The band doesn’t even know the storyline. No one does, except me. But I won’t discuss it because it’ll all make sense someday. Or it won’t. [laughs] lt doesn’t matter. The songs work fine even if you don’t know the concept.”

Regarding his decision to include a a heavy-duty cover of GRAND FUNK RAILROAD‘s “We’re An American Band” on “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor”, Rob said: “I’ve never recorded a cover song as a solo artist, and I only recorded a few with WHITE ZOMBIE [KISS‘God Of Thunder’, BLACK SABBATH‘s ‘Children Of The Grave’ and KC AND THE SUNSHINE BAND‘s ‘I’m Your Boogie Man’]. But you always wanna add new songs into your live show, so [Zombie’s guitarist] John 5 and I would always sit in the back of the bus listening to stuff we could cover, but it was always like, ‘Nah, that one’s not right.’ Cover songs are tricky. You gotta find just the right one. ‘We’re An American Band’ hit us because it just felt so much like our life. We’re a quintessential American band — everything that’s right or wrong in Americana in one band. It wasn’t like we were trying to say anything deep or meaningful. [laughs] It was just like, ‘Yeah, we’re in a rock band. Fuck you — it’s awesome.'”

Zombie told The Pulse Of Radio what goals he set for himself in making the new album. “I wanted someone to hear it and go, ‘Wow, I haven’t heard that before,'” he said. “I wanted it to be just different. We really went out of our way with the sounds, so every song has a very different sound, a very different guitar sound, drum sound, just everything, where the sound, the actual sound becomes very important. You know, after all these years you want to still try to feel that you can break through new, creative areas in your own mind, and that’s really what we’re just trying to do, you know.”

BLIND GUARDIAN – Imaginations Through The Looking Glass DVD Goes Gold In Germany; Video Of Ceremony Available

BLIND GUARDIAN’s full-length DVD, Imaginations Through The Looking Glass, has gone gold in Germany. “Thanks to the more than 25,000 German fans who purchased the DVD and made this achievement possible,” the band react.

A video of the gold album ceremony and a short interview with Hansi (in German only) can be seen here.

According to Wikipedia, Blind Guardian had intended to record a DVD since early 1998, however, due to the band’s high requirements, no existing metal festival had been considered suitable. Instead, the band decided to create their own festival, back in their homeland. The First Blind Guardian Festival was held in Coburg, Germany, at June 16–17, 2003. It lasted 2 days, with the band playing during both nights. The entire show has been professionally recorded and subsequently released on a DVD entitled Imaginations through the Looking Glass on June 14, 2004.
