The first season of Ash vs Evil Dead comes to a close with an episode bordering on greatness before offering an ineffectual shrug of an ending.
To say that Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness came off the heels of Evil Dead II would be inaccurate. The truth of the matter is that the Evil Dead films are like the Alien movies insofar as their individual releases are several years apart. 6 years separate the first two entries, and another 6 between the latter two (officially speaking, Army’s premier was in 1992, a cool 5 years after the second picture). That’s an amazingly long time between films, especially in a genre such as horror, which has the nasty little habit of cranking out sequels like it was nobody’s business.
The weather could not have been nicer for Wizard World’s first ever Cleveland comic convention. (I say this, because in Northeast Ohio half a foot of snow is usually the best welcome we can offer to newcomers.) After a good trudge through the slush-covered streets, I managed to step out of the chill air and into the press of con-goers. Despite the icy conditions, Cleveland’s convention center was packed with attendees.
