  |  @   |

While the tweets were repulsive, they were made at a time when Gunn was a different person. Still, they were troubling enough for Disney to take quick action. Since then Guardians of the Galaxy stars and others have come to Gunn’s defense. Check out what they had to say below.

  |  @   |  

Though not at all surprising, the news that Starz has decided to cancel Ash vs Evil Dead after three seasons was no less devastating to fans.

And the news doesn’t get any better. For anyone who was hoping that now that the show has been canceled it might find another home or perhaps even lead to that fourth Evil Dead movie—which was whispered about here and there over the years after Army of Darkness, before the 2013 reboot and eventually the TV series arrived—that’s not going to happen, sadly. Bruce Campbell, who played Ash Williams in the original film trilogy and on Ash vs Evil Dead, has announced that he is retiring from playing that role after nearly four decades. Campbell made the announcement in a farewell message to fans, which you can read below.

The Master Of Horror, John Carpenter, Turns 70… and No, He’s NOT Dead
  |  @   |  

“The report of my death was an exaggeration.” – Mark Twain, 5/31/1897

On Tuesday, January 16th the Master of Horror John Carpenter turned 70. Rotten Tomatoes was quick to wish the acclaimed director, writer, and composer a Happy Birthday, with one minor mistake… they thought he was DEAD! They penned an article at 7:30 AM titled: “John Carpenter would have been 70 years old today!” In classical Twain-like manner, Carpenter responded on Twitter, “To Rotten Tomatoes, despite how it appears, I’m actually not dead.” Carpenter directed his first feature film in 1974 at only 26, the low-budget sci-fi comedy Dark Star. Four year later, he reinvented the genre with the most successful independent film of all time, Halloween. That record stood for 21 years until 1999’s The Blair Witch Project.
