The Genius of Sam Raimi

- Advertisement -
To many horror fans, director Sam Raimi’s name should only be spoken by a chorus of angels, followed by an inner-thigh mopping for those blessed enough to hear the hallowed invocation. His Evil Dead trilogy ran the gamut of hardcore gore to slapstick comedy, and created a cult icon out of Bruce Campbell, who played Ash, the long-suffering, chainsaw-toting hero of all three films. And after more than two decades away from the genre, spent building the Spider Man franchise and producing TV shows about time traveling strippers and Napoleonic secret agents, Raimi has returned to horror. In Drag Me To Hell, Raimi brings his peculiar brand of bloody Three Stooges gags back to the big screen in the story of a bank employee cursed by a gypsy. Tonight, Sound on Sight takes a look at Sam Raimi’s new horror film, and revisits the cult classic Evil Dead series.

    I really enjoyed this show. In fact I would have to say it is the best show you guys have done so far. I have not seen Drag Me To Hell yet and to be honest the trailer didn’t to do anything to convince me to go and see it. After hearing your reviews I intend on watching it this weekend. I look forward to future episodes.

      Thank you Tom. I am glad we could persuade people to watch his movie. It’s nice to know our listeners are also supporting some of the smaller movies.

    I’m sick of you guys hating on TAKEN. That was a great action movie.

      Uhm dude, I had fun with Taken but that doesn`t mean it is good. It was just a fun watch but it certainly won`t age well.

    I didn’t think there was anything wrong the previous color scheme…

    I’ve been a huge fan of the Evil Dead trilogy since I was a kid and I thought Drag Me To Hell was amazing. I love the idea that he created the hanker-chief in the same manner as the possessed hand in Evil Dead. The flying eye balls, false teeth, the fly… Brilliant!

      Glad to see most people enjoyed the film. I seriously think it is one of the best films I have seen this year.

    What would you prefer? I would really like to know. Our web programmer lives in Poland and these days we find it difficult to find time to meet. We are still in the process of chaning the sidebars and we are doing it this week so please share your thoughts before we do so.

      please get rid of the black and get rid of the yellow. try to use a more unified color scheme that is pleasing to the eye.

      1. Ricky says

        Aright I will see what I can do but i might not be able to change it for a few days.

    What is up with the site’s Halloween theme with the black sidebars & yellow font? I hate to say this but it looks really messy.
