Dr.Chris Record Spotlight: Army of Darkness

Posted in Art, Bruce Campbell, Demons, music, The Evil Dead, vinyl on January 8, 2016 by chrisdsav

Mondo Records has been doing an excellent  job with their vinyl releases. This month for the first of the year we spot light ARMY OF DARKNESS. Directed by Sam Raimi and staring Bruce Campbell. Another reason I’m doing this in January  is Ash vs Evil Dead just completed  its first season on Starz  network. Now some fans may have read Bruce Campbell that due to legal reasons hey can’t use Army of Darkness as part of the tv shows story line. None the less it splits the time line between the two films. Actually it’s three time lines if you count the remake as well.

The music is composed by Joseph  LoDuca, with the March of the Dead theme by Danny Elfman (Batman,Spider-Man, Bettlejuice, and many others). The march of the dead has this up lifting foreboding score which is a lot of fun. You can tell the difference  between Elfman and LoDuca. The music is performed by the Seattle Symphony  Orchestra  and Chorus. The music is perfect for the perfect  mix of medieval adventure and horror this movie is. In other countries this title is Evil Dead 3 Medieval Dead.

The record it self is on two 18 gram lp and never before released on vinyl before. The cover has a great art by Richey Beckett, he did the inside jacket too. The album comes with mini evil Ashs a few little cardboard Ashes for fun. There are two style of records the traditional  black and a blue snd white vortex color, this one sold out very quickly  and I was only able to obtain the black.

If you are a huge fan of the Evil Dead universe this is worth picking up. Wax Records will be releasing the Evil Dead 2 Dead by Dawn soundtrack soon and also worth picking up.

Posted in Bruce Campbell, news, The Evil Dead, tv, Zombies on March 9, 2015 by chrisdsav

Starz has announced today that Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) will play the role of Ruby in the STARZ original series “Ash vs Evil Dead.” The series is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to film on location in New Zealand this spring and premiere on STARZ in late 2015.

Ruby is a mysterious figure who is myopic in her quest to hunt down the source of the recent Evil outbreaks. The only problem: she believes that Ash (Bruce Campbell) is the cause of it all.

The casting reteams Lawless with executive producers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert whom she worked with when she starred in the television series’ “Xena: Warrior Princess” and “Spartacus” as well as appearing in their feature films including Raimi’s Spider Man and Tapert’s Boogeyman. Additional television credits include “Salem,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Top Of The Lake,” “Flight of the Conchords,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and “Battlestar Galactica” among others.

Lawless joins previously announced cast members Bruce Campbell (Ashley J. Williams), Ray Santiago (Pablo Simon Bolivar), Dana DeLorenzo (Kelly Maxwell) and Jill Marie Jones (Amanda Fisher).
The STARZ Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” will be 10 half-hour episodes. Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead.
