Evil Dead: The Game Cover Story – Raising Hell

Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games are targeting the asymmetrical horror genre for a battle between demons and survivors, but it’s quite different than other creature feature forays on the market. In Evil Dead: The Game, don’t expect to find the human heroes cowering in corners or attempting to flee – this 4v1 fear festival takes the fight directly to the forces of evil, hacking enemies in half and blowing them to pieces. In 1981, Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead made a grisly splash onto the horror scene, featuring what’s become an almost formulaic setup: Five unfortunate friends head out to a cabin in the woods for a good time, and then, spoiler alert, good times are not had. The idyllic journey into the country turns into a bloody massacre, spurred on by an ancient evil book known as the Necronomicon. I remember I first saw the movie in a time when villains like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Michael Myers fought for dominance over our grade-school nightmares. The film offered the terrifying simplicity of facing your friends after they become possessed undead. It gloried in the sheer, unflinching willingness to lean into the intimate, grim goriness of it all, and the experience left a strong impression. Interestingly enough, it’s possible that The Evil Dead wouldn’t have had the chance to thrive without horror maestro Stephen King’s praise. After seeing it out of competition at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival, King wrote a rave review, leading to New Line Cinema picking the film up for distribution. The movie has gone down as a cult classic and had plenty of influence within the horrorsphere. But Bruce Campell’s portrayal of character Ash Williams has undeniably become the campy, comical face of the otherwise incredibly macabre franchise, infusing the gruesome themes and blood splatters with a hefty dose of comedic quips and one-liners. Multiple films followed the original, including Evil Dead 2 and the completely off-the-wall Army of Darkness, where Ash travels back to medieval times to fight the titular demonic forces. In more modern times, the series has had both a soft reboot and a TV series, with yet another film, Evil Dead Rise, scheduled to hit this year. And then, of course, there’s Saber Interactive’s upcoming game. Read more...

    The covid-19 report is essential if you want to travel to the Maldives.

    Kick-started on September 10, if you are planning to visit the Maldives you need to have a report of negative Covid-19 results which is now a mandatory report to enter the island nation of Maldives. This move came in less than 2 months since the Maldives opened its border for tourists however, there was no requirement initially but lately, COVID-19 test and quarantine rules is mandatory. As per the latest update from Ministry of Tourism, Maldives all tourists arriving the archipelago need to submit Covid-19 test results at Male International Airport and the test results should not be less than 72 hours before you reach the airport. Apart from the new rule, other Covid-19 rules and regulations will still be in place. After a hiatus of 4 months, Maldives opened its borders to tourists from July 15 onwards and earlier it was possible to enter the country where tourists should sign the health declaration form at least 24 hours prior arrival and once they land they need to follow the strict measures enforced by the government to curb the rise of coronavirus cases. Most of the resorts in the Maldives are situated in their own Island hence they are allowing authorities to let the individual resorts to devise their own plan to help the tourists visit and quarantine. And as per the rules, all the resorts need to have a trained medical professional in place and he/she should be capable to collect COVID-19 sample for testing. Some of the resorts are testing its guests for COVID-19 which is an effort to create Coronavirus free bubbles. Given the Negative Covid-19 certificate being made mandatory, it is unclear if the resorts are still testing its guests for coronavirus. Also, the restrictions which were strict before splitting the holidays between two or more resorts have been relaxed which was not allowed earlier. Now tourists can split their accommodation plan after they get a nod from the government. Add to Bookmarks
