The Spirit Halloween movie has revealed a few of its familiar haunting faces. Another old friend returns for Dinsey+’s The Santa Clause sequel. Plus, behind the scenes of the return of Fate: The Winx Club, and what’s coming up on Evil. To me, my spoilers!
Evil Dead Rise
In a recent interview with Collider, Bruce Campbell described Evil Dead Rise as a “very European Evil Dead” movie that “does not suck in the least.”
It is because it’s actually does not suck in the least. Lee Cronin did a great job. Sam picks these director types who’ve had some experience, but we can still sort of shove them into the Evil Dead box a little bit since these are Maverick-type directors. I give Sam credit, he’s not picking people, we’re just gonna mimic his shit. They come with very strong personalities and approaches. It’s a very European Evil Dead.
Spirit Halloween: The Movie
Spirit Halloween’s official Instagram has revealed that Buzzsaw, Mr. Dark, and Nightcrawler (three of the store’s original animatronic characters) are confirmed to appear in the new movie starring Christopher Lloyd and Rachel Leigh Cook.
You may now stream “It’s Zombo” and “House of Zombo,” two songs from Rob Zombie’s The Munsters soundtrack, available as a single from Waxwork Records.
