Sony just announced that EVIL DEAD will find its way onto shelves on Blu-ray and DVD on July 16th! I was just wondering the other day when this bad boy would be getting a release. I absolutely loved Fede Alvarez's take on EVIL DEAD — it was a fantastic tribute to Sam Raimi's classic and a hell of a lot of bloody good fun.
Below you can find the official cover art along with some kick ass looking bonus features. I'm really looking forward to checking out “Making Life Difficult” section of the bonus features where it takes a look at "the intense and physically exhausting creation of the film". Once I found out that the film used nothing but practical effects and camera tricks I've been dying to see just how they pulled it all off!
Read on for all the other goods.
A secluded cabin. An ancient curse. An unrelenting evil. Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell reunite to present a genuinely terrifying re-imagining of their original horror masterpiece.
