Finally! Starz/Anchor Bay Entertainment has confirmed an August 31st Blu-ray release of Sam Raimi’s seminal film The Evil Dead starring Bruce Campbell.
No specs and/or supplemental materials have been announced yet, but according to Hi-Def Digest the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.97.
In the summer of 1979 a group of Detroit friends with $375,000 raised from local investors headed for a cabin outside of Morristown, Tennessee, to make a film about five college students possessed by an ancient Book of the Dead. The filmmakers’ goal was to create the ultimate experience in grueling terror, a movie so relentless that it would stand forever as a landmark in modern horror history. When it was released in 1982, it was immediately recognized worldwide as one of the most ferociously original films ever made.
