Now this… this is super cool! During an interview with Altapeli regarding his new film Don’t Breathe, director Fede Alvarez let the cat out of the bag that an extended cut of his Evil Dead remake will be hitting Blu-ray in October.
“I’ll give you the news exclusively because no one [knows] yet, but the extended cut [of Evil Dead] will be coming out on Blu-ray. It sounds like it will be available just in time for Halloween,” Alvarez tells the site.
“I think that what was released in theaters is the best version of the film, but there are many deleted scenes that will be in the Blu-ray when it comes out that I really wanted people to see. [The additional scenes] really help us to understand more about the characters. There [was a lot of footage trimmed from] the film to maintain its tension. [Evil Dead] moves fast, and there is constantly something going on so we had to keep [moving]. It was inevitable that some things [were lost along the way.]”
Stay tuned for more on this as it comes, and big thanks to eagle-eyed DC reader Yorsh R. for the heads up!
