As we previously reported, this special restoration will feature an exclusive new soundtrack from original composer Joe LoDuca as well as a fresh surround mix from Marti Humphrey and Jussi Tegelman, both of whom also worked on Ash vs Evil Dead.
Grindhouse Releasing’s Bob Murawski, who previously edited for Army of Darkness and Ash vs Evil Dead, worked closely with Raimi to restore the beloved horror film from the original 16mm negatives, creating this new 4K transfer to be premiered in theaters for horror fans everywhere to enjoy.

The Evil Dead, the film that kicked off a fan-favorite horror franchise, was written and directed by Sam Raimi and features Bruce Campbell in the iconic role of Ash Williams. It’s the story of five friends who travel to a cabin in the woods and discover a book and audio tape, unknowingly releasing demons by reading from the book of the dead, the Necronomicon. The movie first premiered in 1981.
