FilmDistrict and TriStar’s Evil Dead is headed to DVD and Blu-ray on July 16th. Hopefully the uncut version is on there as well, but we’ll have to see about that! It does have a lot of bonus features, so at least there’s that! Check out my review here.
“In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.”
