MTV News: Bruce Campbell Reflects On 'The Evil Dead,' 'Bruce Versus Frankenstein' And Why He's So Awesome

Adam Rosenberg
Sam Raimi's classic horror film "The Evil Dead" arrives on Blu-ray next Tuesday, exactly one week from today. In addition to a lovely-looking hi-def transfer and what is apparently the first available version of the movie in a 1.33:1 aspect ratio -- which is actually full screen, compared to the more standard 1.85:1 widescreen -- there's also a bonus DVD of behind-the-scenes content and an all-new audio commentary with Raimi, star Bruce Campbell and producer Robert Tapert.

The commentary is pretty stellar. Making "The Evil Dead" was a four-year process for these guys, 12 weeks of which were spent in what sounds like the absolute hell of shooting at that cabin. Joking statements are made comparing the experience there to that of Vietnam, and the anecdotes the shared range from appalling to downright frightening. Raimi, Campbell and Tapert have all known each other for a very long time, and that relationship really comes out in their back-and-forth banter.

Campbell was kind enough to take some time to chat with MTV News this past weekend, and he seemed very excited to be talking about this movie that was so instrumental in launching his career... and not just because it was his first feature.
