Evil Dead, the remake of Sam Raimi’s classic horror film, did quite well for itself when it was released back in April. Finding success with critics, fans and at the box office, director Fede Alvarez proved his talents and showed us that horror remakes can indeed be worth watching.
Personally, I enjoyed the film and thought it was a strong entry for the genre, which is why I’m happy to share with you that the Blu-Ray has been announced for release on July 16th.
Special Features include:
- – Commentary featuring stars Jane Levy, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, Director Fede Alvarez and writer Rodo Sayagues (Blu-ray exclusive)
- – “Making Life Difficult” – The Intense and Physically Exhausting Creation of the Film
- – “Being Mia” – The Physical and Psychological Transformation into “Evil Mia”
- – “Directing The Dead” – Director Fede Alvarez re-imagines a cult horror classic
- – “Unleashing The Evil Force” – Exploring the origins and design of the new Book of the Dead (Blu-ray exclusive)
- – “Evil Dead the Reboot” – Cast Rehearsals, Bruce Campbell, Deadites and more! (Blu-ray exclusive)
Sounds like a decent batch of special features, with the only thing missing being the NC-17 cut of the film, which I’m shocked didn’t make it onto the Blu-Ray. Almost every horror film has an unrated cut when its released on Blu-Ray so the fact that this one doesn’t is a bit surprising. Still, it’s a great film and I’ll definitely be purchasing it.
