    SXSW Review: Why Fede Alvarez's 'Evil Dead' Remake Can't Match the Fun of the Originals

    The first two entries in Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" trilogy -- released in 1981 and 1987, respectively -- delivered such delightfully inventive takes on the horror genre that no remake could possibly match their originality.

    Immersed in Movies: Puppet Cams, China Girl and VFX Wizardry in 'Oz the Great and Powerful'

While the results have been mixed (it's hard to pull off innocence afte...

    Oz The Great And Powerful

    Risk-Taking James Franco In Risk-Free 'Oz the Great and Powerful'

    Flying moneys, good. Flying baboons, bad. That's one difference between the classic, 1939 'Wizard of Oz' and 'Oz the Great and Powerful,' Disney's pricey new extravaganza with James Franco as the pre-wizard carnival con man.
