Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead to Get New 4K Release

Experience this cult classic like never before.

By Jay Gervais

Lionsgate is finally bringing Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead in a new 4K Blu-ray release, which is the first time the film has been available in this format. Below is the press release and cover of the item.


Disappointing is the fact the special features seem to be pretty bare bones at this time, especially since other releases of this film have been jammed full of them, but this may satisfy those just looking for the quality upgrade of the film itself without any other goodies. The included audio commentary was already released in previous sets, which was recorded back in 2009.

The new 4K Blu-ray release from Lionsgate will retail for just $22.99 and will arrive later this year on October 9th in stores. However, we found a better deal for you. Right now, if you pre-order from DiabolikDVD, you can get the new 4K Blu-ray for the special price of $16.99 plus the cost of shipping. If you’re interesting in picking this item up from them, head on over to their order page.
