Lionsgate will unleash Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead and Evil Dead II in a 4K Ultra HD Steelbook set exclusively at Best Buy on September 29th.
It’s available to pre-order HERE.
It’s worth noting that the recently announced 4K Ultra HD Steelbook of John Carpenter’s Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis hits the same day.
The Evil Dead centers on Ashley “Ash” Williams, his girlfriend and three pals hike into the woods to a cabin for a fun night away. There they find an old book, the Necronomicon, whose text reawakens the dead when it’s read aloud. The friends inadvertently release a flood of evil and must fight for their lives or become one of the evil dead. Ash watches his friends become possessed, and must make a difficult decision before daybreak to save his own life in this, the first of Sam Raimi’s trilogy.
Meanwhile, Evil Dead II, the second of three films in the series is part horror, part comedy, with Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) once again battling horrifying demons at a secluded cabin in the woods. After discovering an audiotape left by a college professor that contains voices reading from the Book of the Dead, Ash’s girlfriend Linda (Denise Bixler) becomes possessed by evil spirits that are awakened by the voices on the tape. Ash soon discovers there is no escaping the woods.
