Blue-Ray News: EVIL DEAD 2 -the second try…..
So, the first Blue-Ray by Anchor Bay seems to have been crap.
But now, the movie gets a second chance on Blue-Ray, this time done with a little more love.
Evil Dead II: 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Disc
Officially scheduled for November 15th..so save your money for this little fella…
From horror master Sam Raimi (Drag Me to Hell) and starring the effervescent Bruce Campbell (Army of Darkness), Evil Dead II gets the deluxe Blu-ray treatment this November from Lionsgate. Ranked #19 in Entertainment Weekly’s “Top 50 Cult Films” list, Evil Dead II has been hailed as “one of the most visually inventive, relentless and truly original films ever made” (BBC). The Evil Dead II: 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray is packed with all-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.
The lone survivor after an attack of flesh-eating spirits, Ash (Campbell) retreats to the woods with his girlfriend, Linda (Denise Bixler, Crisis in the Kremlin). There, Ash plays her a recording of a professor’s readings from the Book of the Dead. The spell unleashes an evil force to take over Linda’s body and turns her into a monstrous Deadite, threatening to do the same to Ash. When the professor’s daughter and her friends arrive, the evening unravels into a gory and comic battle with a chainsaw, a shotgun and a flying eyeball.
