Sure, their country is glowing and is bound to be rocked by a giant Kaiju at any moment… who cares?!? They have some of the coolest friggin’ gadgets imaginable, not to mention their home video releases.
Check out images of this insane packaging for the upcoming Japanese releases of the original Evil Dead and the remake. I can smell your wallets warming as I type. The Evil Dead (死霊のはらわた) (1981) Limited Blu-ray and the remake set will be hitting Japan on July 26 from Sony, and yes, before you ask, the remake’s package will be home to the film’s unrated cut. Said cut is only available Stateside as a digital download. Yep, shafted again.
Thanks to the Basement of Ghoulish Decadence Facebook page for the info and eye candy.
