From horror master Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead, Drag Me to Hell, Army of Darkness) and starring the effervescent Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead, Army of Darkness), Evil Dead II gets the deluxe Blu-ray treatment November 15 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 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.”
