Evil Dead II : Special Edition
Monday 25th March 2013
From horror master Sam Raimi, Starring Bruce Campbell, Sarah Berry and Dan Hicks, Evil Dead II is released as a Special Edition Blu-ray on 15th April 2013 with new UK exclusives, courtesy of StudioCanal.
After the shocking and notorious cult classic Evil Dead impaled its way into the minds of a whole generation by becoming one of the original 'video nasties', visionary, maverick director Sam Raimi (Spider Man 1-3) decided to elaborate on its twisted scenario by creating one of the most visually deranged and psychotically demented horror movies to ever splatter its way across cinema screens.
Featuring b-movie legend Bruce Campbell in his most iconic role, as the fantastically unhinged Ash, Evil Dead II is a gore-fuelled, splatstick masterpiece.
Ash, (Bruce Campbell: Army of Darkness), the sole survivor of The Evil Dead, takes his girlfriend Linda (Denise Bixler: Crisis in the Kremlin) to a secluded cabin in the woods where he plays back a professor's tape recorded recitation of passages from the Book of the Dead.
The spell calls up an evil force from the woods that turns Linda into a monstrous Deadite and threatens to do the same to Ash. He is forced to single-handedly battle the legions of the damned as the most lethal - and groovy - hero in horror movie history.
Evil Dead II gets a deluxe Blu-ray treatment on April 15th packed with new special features that revisit every aspect of the film's shoot with over 20 cast and crew members, plus tons of existing content and a thrilling new High-Definition 1080P transfer.
April 18th also sees StudioCanal's release of the hotly anticipated remake of the franchise opener Evil Dead. Original team Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and original producer, Rob Tapert, personally selected director Fede Alvarez to bring their rebooted version to the screen CGI-free, with all the glorious, goriest moments shot entirely with practical special-effects.
