lol So the character was cool. It still sucked majorly, it had a few funny parts but it was still bad enough to give me a headache and put me to sleep. Army of darkness was ok though...

How could anyone possibly compare Night of the Living Dead to the Evil Dead series? That's like comparing "The Devils" to the witch-trial sequence in "Holy Grail". One - NOTLD - is a straight-up exercise in low-budget horror, brilliantly realized, the other - the ED trilogy - is splatstick humor, brilliantly realized! As 007 once observed, "Peking duck is different than Russian caviar, though I love them both".

Ah, the Evil Dead films...I remember being one of only eight people watching 'Army of Darkness' a day after it's premier in Hammersmith in London back in 1993. One of those select few walked out half-way through! She clearly had no taste as AoD was one of the most entertaining films I had ever seen. Almost every pretence of horror that ED and EDII aspired to was thrown out of the window for the second sequel, and it was just a corking joke-fest with hammy acting and lots of gurning. Excellent.

I've still got the (unplayed) castle siege board game somewhere.

A musical version just won't work without Bruce Campbell..

Groovy.

For years I had my computer setup to blurt out all kinds of little sound bytes many of which were harvested from the ED movies. I must have been really annoying.

Bruce is the best! If you haven't read "If Chins Could Kill" you must! He also has another book that I haven't picked up yet called "Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way".

Got a signed copy of "If Chins Could Kill", AND a photo with Bruce Campbell. Saw him when he was in Sacramento, btw. It was all that and more... :smile:

Of course!!! Sacramento is very fond of b-movies. I haven't been in a couple of years, but I used to regularly attend the "Trash Film Orgy" events that are held at The Crest. I actually miss going. I'll have to make time. I also used to regularly attended the "Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation" there.

Did you happen to see Bubba-Hotep?

I just watched Bubba Hotep a couple of nights ago. I think when I saw it in the theatre here there might have been 12 people in the audience. "Do you want a ding dong?"

I met Bruce on the first book tour in Atlanta. I think he signed 3 fake plastic chainsaws that night, which he told me was far from the record.

To bad that musical is only playing in NY, I'd go see that in a heart beat.

I hope that Sam and Bruce get together one day for a ED movie.
