Evil Dead II Blu-ray in April
Ahead of the theatrical release of the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, StudioCanal will be releasing a special edition of EVIL DEAD II on Blu-ray on April 15th. From horror master Sam Raimi (Drag Me To Hell) and starring the effervescent Bruce Campbell, this Blu-ray edition contains great special features new to the UK!
After the shocking and notorious cult classic The 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 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, the sole survivor of The Evil Dead, takes his girlfriend Linda (Denise Bixler) to a secluded cabin in the woods where he plays back 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.
