Sam Raimi’s THE EVIL DEAD and its sequels have amassed an army of followers, and their passion for the films is the subject of a new documentary that is seeking contributors.
HAIL TO THE DEADITES is being directed and produced by DiggerFilms’ Steve Villeneuve, who previously celebrated independent horror in UNDER THE SCARES. This time, he says, “The goal is to make a documentary about the fans with the fans. We think the Deadites are a big and strong family, and making this film will allow us to reach out to each other. As a fan, I want to know them and I want to meet them. I want to share my collection and discover theirs. This film is not just for collectors; it’s for all the EVIL DEAD fans in general who made this franchise a classic.”

That’s right you primitive screwheads, listen up! In an interview with Fede Alvarez on Bloody Disgusting, he happened to drop a bit of news that Raimi and co. seemed more interested in getting a second Army Of Darkness off the ground before, perhaps, a sequel to the Evil Dead remake. Alvarez was quoted as saying, “The pressure is on them now. Because as far as I know, and heard, Sam is really determined to get Army Of Darkness 2 happening. He is actually writing [it now].” This seems to lend more credence to the news we reported on earlier of a potential crossover between the two Evil Dead universes. Whatever the case may be, Ash certainly said it best:
How could I have missed all of this back in March? Well I’m reporting on it now! Right now this news should be treated with extreme speculation, but rumors have been flying since WonderCon that Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez and the Raimi/Tapert/Campbell team have further plans not only for the new Evil Dead franchise, but the entire Evil Dead franchise culminating in an eventual crossover with Army Of Darkness 2.
