Ash Williams: Groovy S-Mart employee with a penchant for boomsticks and mad DIY prosthetics skills. Also, unlikely hero from the sky, fated to stop the Deadite invasion. Pretty much the spirit of the 80’s b-horror movie flick. Lobo: Space biker with a short fuse, and an anti-grav motorcycle. Hangs out with a school of space dolphins. Has fought Wolverine and made it to the second round. Functionally immortal, with the capacity to infinitely reproduce from each drop of his own spilt blood. Each of them is a smug anti-hero with an almost fanatical cult following among the most gung-ho nerds.
Once, they were separated by vast gulfs of time and space, each occupying his Universe of origin. That is, until Brian Rosenthal, the director behind the 2013 fan film Marvel Zombies VS Army Of Darknessthought otherwise. After holding his own against zombie-Wolverine and narrowly escaping a super-zombie infested New York, Ash Williams has broken into a brand new universe, also overwhelmed by the undead and filled to the brim with horror-themed cameos!

When people get sick of waiting for a sequel that’s never going to happen, they start to get downright desperate. Fans will do anything to see a another movie for a franchise that’s been dead in the water for years, anything from writing their own scripts to even holding protests for them. Trent Duncan on the other hand decided to go a different route, bypassed the studio big leagues and made his own kick ass fan film for Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash.
Blending just the right amount of blood, babes and cheese into the film industries’ most underrated threesome next to the Austin Powers series. We know; Freddy and Jason don’t look half as scary as their big-budget brothers but the film was made with next to nothing, I’d like to see you pull this off on a weekend. Someone please hire Trent to make a fully fleshed out version of this movie, it’d be a dream come true. Sorry, couldn’t resist.
Here’s a look at the plot: Sisters Lucy (Maddie Bright) and Holly (Ashley Brooke) are stranded with their friend Danielle (Erica Lea Shelton) on the roadside as Freddy Krueger (Danny Zetwo) and Jason Voorhees (Cheyenne Hess) team up to hunt and manipulate the stranded ladies in order to transport Ash Williams (Adam Henrickon) back to this world and seek their ultimate revenge.
Judging by that ending we could see a possible follow-up to this fan made marvel someday and that’ll be a treat even the king himself would enjoy.
Reboots, reboots, reboots. Can’t get enough of them, right? Bullshit. Can we collectively, once and for all, start a petition that disallows movie companies to ‘remake’ or ‘reboot’ any movie or franchise if it is less than thirty years old? (Oh shit, what? Evil Dead *IS* 30 years old? OK then, 35 years old. Yeah!) All right, here’s the scoop.
There has always been a lot of talk about whether or not there would be another movie in the Evil Dead series, or if they would just reboot the entire thing. (NO! BAD!) But the rumors are making their way around again, and it looks like something that could be in the works. This is what Robert Tapert had to say about the whole thing from STYD:
“It’s possible; we’re looking at a script this month,” Tapert told Freep.com during an interview concerning Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. “What’s interesting about ‘Evil Dead’ is very few people saw it in the format we made it for, which is for the theater. … I think Sam wants to embrace the ultimate experience in grueling terror and see it remade for a proper theatrical experience.”
For those of you not in the know, Tapert operates Ghost House Pictures with Sam Raimi, so he would definitely be one of the “in the know” people if this project were really going to happen. Now, I wouldn’t mind another sequel so long as Ash (played by Bruce Campbell) makes his triumphant return. But a reboot is complete shit. No one would be able to fill Bruce Campbell’s sexy shoes, and no one should be allowed to try!
