Original EVIL DEAD to finally hit Blu-ray

Michael Gingold
First, a bit of a mea culpa: We discovered this news tidbit in an on-line article from Video Business a little while back, and have spent the time since trying to dig up more details. None were forthcoming, and since then the mag and its on-line incarnation have gone defunct, so the original posted item has been lost in cyberspace. But trust us: it was announced that THE EVIL DEAD will be making its hi-def disc debut later this year.

A source from Anchor Bay Entertainment, which has issued Sam Raimi’s classic gruefest in several DVD editions over the past decade, confirmed to the trade that the movie is on their Blu-ray slate for 2010. We haven’t been able to confirm which extras will be ported over from those previous discs, whether new ones will be created or if Raimi and co. are directly involved, but we’ll keep digging and bring you further info as we get it!
