Lindsay Farris joins the cast of Ash vs Evil Dead in the new season as Dalton, leader of the modern-day Knights of Sumeria. You'll quickly see Dalton's reverence for Ash when Season 3 premieres on Sunday, and during our recent interview, he talks about his love of the horror and growing up with The Evil Dead:
What’s the sign of a good horror sequel? Is it adherence to the things that made the original work? Is it branching off in a new direction while still paying respect? Or is it having a rockabilly-quoting Greaser (big G) with a drill attached to the end of his guitar killing every pastel wearing teen in his wake? The answer is possibly all three, but today we’ll focus on the last one with Slumber Party Massacre II (1987), Deborah Brock’s ridiculously fun (and delightfully odd) follow up to Amy Holden Jones’ cult classic.
"There's only one thing more terrifying than the first visit. The second." Tiny critters from beyond return to wreak havoc in teenaged Terry's life in Gate II, and with the early ’90s horror sequel coming to Blu-ray from Scream Factory on February 27th, we've been provided with three high-def copies to give away to lucky Daily Dead readers.
While Ash was a Deadite-killing expert by the start of the Ash vs Evil Dead TV series, Kelly is in a very different place from when the series first began, and is now a blood-soaked veteran Deadite slayer in her own right. Continuing our interview series leading up to this Sunday's season 3 premiere on STARZ, Dana DeLorenzo and I talked about her joining the Evil Dead family in the first season, playing off of Ash's antiquated views, and going big in the new season:
February has been a busy month, as there have been a ton of indie genre offerings coming out each and every week, and I had a chance to check out a trio of recent titles: The Cured from Irish filmmaker David Freyne, the quirky romance/body horror hybrid Are We Not Cats, and Derek Nguyen’s gothic romance, The Housemaid.
You may know him as Hercules, Emmett Cullen, or even Tarzan, but recently actor Kellan Lutz has been bringing other memorable characters to life in a string of intriguingly imaginative movies. After playing Sy Lombrok in the ambitious sci-fi film The Osiris Child, Lutz channels his inner Indiana Jones for the spider-centric 7 Guardians of the Tomb. With the adventure horror movie out now in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD platforms via Gravitas Ventures, we recently caught up with Lutz to discuss reteaming with Kelsey Grammer after working together on The Expendables 3, experiencing spider pranks on set, and his dislike of cockroaches.
It may still be winter in many parts of the world, but Arrow Video is already taking a bite out of spring with the reveal of their May US Blu-ray releases, including Wes Craven's The Last House on the Left and The Bloodthirsty Trilogy, a collection of 1970s Japanese vampire movies that cult film lovers will want to start making space for on their home media shelves.
Living the American Dream means that you can be anyone you want to be, even if that someone happens to be a Wall Street serial killer fascinated by Huey Lewis and the News, or a medical student who puts her skin-slicing skills to gain success with body modifications... including some painful alterations on the professor who betrayed her. On a new episode of Corpse Club, we take a look at the all-American horrors of American Psycho and American Mary.
"Black magic starts with you and it will end in you." An occult death curse threatens to destroy a mother and daughter in the official trailer and poster for Pyewacket, the new horror film from Backcountry director Adam MacDonald.

The stakes are high at the arcade when you're playing for dismembered limbs...

If you’ve been following along with my reviews over the years, I’ve always been pretty transparent about my love for high-concept sci-fi cinema. Good, bad, and everything in between, if a director can challenge my critical thinking with their storytelling, I’m a happy camper. For his follow-up to the brilliant Ex Machina, filmmaker Alex Garland has taken Jeff VanderMeer’s novel Annihilation and adapted it for the big screen, resulting in a breathtaking sci-fi spectacle that’s as thrilling as it is thought-provoking.
