Featuring digitally re-mastered high definition picture and sound, plus hours of innovative new bonus features, The Evil Dead finally makes it to Blu-ray on October 11th.. According to the PR people this is the ultimate way for fans old and new; good and evil; alive and un-dead to experience this groundbreaking horror favourite!
Before conquering the global box office with his smash hit Spider-Man series, director Sam Raimi changed the face of horror with this spine-tingling tale of a group of college students facing off against forces of evil at an isolated cabin. At the time of its release, legendary horror author Stephen King called The Evil Dead "the most ferociously original horror film of the year.."
Five Michigan State University students venture into the hills to spend a weekend at an isolated cabin. There they discover an ancient Sumerian text, known as the "Morturom Demonto"; roughly translated as "The Book of the Dead. While searching the basement of the cabin, the students find and play a tape recording of demonic incantations from the book, unwittingly resurrecting slumbering demons that thirst for revenge. The characters are then possessed - one by one - by the spirits of the Book.
