Evil Dead 4K hits Blu-ray this Halloween

Well, it was just earlier today that I pointed out the fact that some of our favorite horror films are getting the 4K Blu-ray treatment lately. First, it was John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN, then Lucio Fulci's ZOMBIE a mere hour or so ago, and already we have more 4K news. It seems a yet another horror classic is heading our way this October.

Yes, Sam Raimi's THE EVIL DEAD is headed to 4K Blu-ray for the first time this October via Lionsgate. You can check out the special feature below and the releases cover art at the very bottom of this article. I know I will be making room in my budget for this film once it hits. How about you?


Audio Commentary with writer-director Sam Raimi, producer Robert Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell

Written and directed by Sam Raimi, and starring Bruce Campbell in the role that made him a cult icon, this film follows 

Five college friends who accidentally release a legion of demons and spirits. More than 35 years ago, a low-budget horror movie roared across movie screens and changed the velocity of fear forever — and made a cult legend out of Bruce Campbell in his iconic role as the lethal, wisecracking Ash Williams. Now, for the first time, you can experience the ferocious ingenuity, relentless shocks, and gore-gushing havoc of the original Sam Raimi masterpiece in 4K!

The 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack including Dolby Vision will allow you to experience four times the resolution of Full HD, as well as Dolby Vision HDR, which will bring the stunning cinematography of this supernatural horror film to life. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver spectacular colors never before seen on a screen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. 

Sam Raimi's THE EVIL DEAD stars Bruce Campbell, Ellen Sandweiss, Richard DeManincor, and Betsy Baker. It arrives on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital) from Lionsgate October 9th.
