Evil Dead kills G.I.Joe Retaliation at the Box Office, MVP Mutant Radio goes Mad Monster Party and More on Mutantville Mondays!

Evil Dead kills G.I.Joe Retaliation at the Box Office, MVP Mutant Radio goes Mad Monster Party and More on Mutantville Mondays!

Apr 8, 2013

The Evil Dead remake justified its existence over the weekend by taking the number one spot at the box office. For months leading into this weekend – fans were concerned that the Evil Dead remake would not live up to the expectations of its namesake – The Evil Dead. Apparently their concerns were unfounded as their thirst for blood was sated – and then some! Audiences were both thrilled and disgusted by the cinematic carnage they had witnessed. Evil Dead (2013) took in an estimated $26 million at the box office beating out the Rock in G.I.Joe Retaliation on Wrestlemania weekend with the Rock headlining against John Cena no less! Perhaps they were all at home watching the Rock instead of going to the theaters. I like the idea that Evil Dead (2013) can come in like the little movie that could and dethrone the bigger stars for the weekend. Speaking strictly as a fan – I enjoyed every bit of Evil Dead (2013) and thought it honored Sam Raimi’s original – The Evil Dead – nicely. Be sure to check out our advance review of Evil Dead (2013)! Now that you’ve seen the movie – you can listen to our spoiler discussion as well! MVP Mutant Radio recently attended the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina and returned with some exclusive audio of Bruce Campbell as he talks about the new Evil Dead and the possibility of Army of Darkness 2. Check out the Mad Monster Party Wrap Up Show for this and more! MUTANT...

Lords of Salem (2013) Official Second Trailer from Rob Zombie hits Trailer Park Tuesday!

Listen up, Kiddiez, Rob Zombie is coming back to theaters this year with an original work entitled Lords of Salem. The movie sounds like Zombie’s homage to the classic heavy metal horror films of yesteryear like Rock ‘N Roll Nightmare, Trick Or Treat and Hard Rock Zombies. Some of the imagery looks like Zombie lifted it from Ken Russell’s The Devils – and that’s a pretty good place to start! Early reviews are mixed – but that won’t stop MVP from getting out to see it opening weekend. Check out the full trailer after the...

‘Evil Dead’ (2012) Remake Beware; Sam Raimi’s Original Short ‘Within The Woods’ (1978) Lurks on Scary Movie Saturday!

The Evil Dead remake lurks just around the corner as it is on course to hit theaters in April 2012. In order to get you ready to accept the (what we all knew was inevitable) Evil Dead remake – we’re going to celebrate it’s origins by playing the original 16mm short film created by Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and friends entitled Within the Woods. Do you dare to journey WITHIN THE WOODS after the leap? According to legend, Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi and friends pooled their resources to make the Within the Woods short film which they shot on 16mm. They used the final product to carry around and screen for prospective investors – mainly doctors and dentists. Raimi and company were eventually able to raise enough funds to greenlight what would become Evil Dead. The rest is drive-in lowbudget filmmaking history as Evil Dead went on to be banned in the UK and honored as the Drive-in Movie of the Year 1981 by Joe Bob Briggs. Flash forward thirty-two years and the time has come round once again. This April – the Evil Dead (2012) remake will be upon us. Love it or hate it – it is inevitable. No need to get upset about it – if you want to see it – then by all means support it. If you’re not interested – then just ignore it and find something else to enjoy. Speaking for MVP – we loved the trailer and will be in line on opening weekend to see if it lives up to it’s own promise of being “the most terrifying movie you will ever experience.” If it lives up to it’s own hype then we’ll be back, flying the Mutantville Mothership high across the sky and proclaiming it as such. If not – then we’ll just pop in the original trilogy and enjoy that instead. In the meantime – let’s enjoy the moment by watching Raimi and Campbell’s original short – Within The Woods. It really quite possibly IS the most terrifying short film you will ever experience. Check it out. It’s streaming online right now. Absolutely free. Dare you go Within The Woods on Scary Movie...
