Ash vs Evil Dead is almost exactly what fans might expect from an Evil Dead TV show. The Necronomicon Ex Mortis is causing trouble again, and it’s up to Ash to save the day 30 years after he last took on the Deadites and those Kandarian Demons with his boomstick and chainsaw. Of course, this time it’s Ash who actually started the whole problem, but once the demon is out of the netherworld, what are you going to do?
“Best. Ever.” is a weekly conglomeration of things that made my week. And there was much rejoicing. This week, the final season of Lost, Evil Dead returns to cinemas, no more Napoleon Dynamite, the Internet turns 40 (kinda), and maybe the new V won’t suck?

As a fan of Sam Raimi’s fantastic, twisted Evil Dead films, I was pretty pumped when I found out that a theatre group was putting on a slick musical based on the classic horror films. The only thing that had me worried was the musical part. I mean, there have been good musicals based on all sorts of things, but it takes more than a bit of talent to come up with a decent, and funny, song about something that makes sense in an Evil Dead sort of way. You know, involving blood, and demons, and how to use a chainsaw to cut off your own hand.
