    EXCL Audio: Fede Alvarez talks “EVIL DEAD”

    Hot on the pencil-poked heels of our cheerfully repugnant EVIL DEAD cover announcement, FANGORIA Editor Chris Alexander tracked co-writer/director Fed Alvarez to his home in Uruguay to talk about his hotly anticipated gore-caked remake.

    Here then, is an exclusive audio chat with Alvarez, in which he talks about life in Raimi-ville, the pressure of the fevered EVIL DEAD fanbase and the sting of the MPAA. Enjoy!

    For much more on EVIL DEAD see the aforementioned FANGORIA #322 (on sale in March) and keep an eye on Fangoria.com as its SXSW world premiere fast approaches.

    Remembering Michael Winner, 1935-2013

    by: Chris Alexander on: 2013-01-21 18:07:23

    I considered Michael Winner a friend. Not a friend in the sense that he’d loan me 50 bucks when I was short on rent, but a friend in that his kindness, openness, advice and cheerful nature were inspiring to me, personally.

    Where do we point the finger for the theatrical failing of
    DREDD? An invisible marketing campaign? The hard R? The association with the
    previous, lunk-headed 1995 big screen adaptation of the beloved British cult
    comic book property?
