The full scoop is in for the long-awaited cult classic hitting Blu-ray in August!

As previously reported, Starz/Anchor Bay Entertainment has revealed 'Evil Dead' for a Blu-ray release on August 31.

'The Evil Dead' is one of the most influential, landmark horror films of all time. Five college friends, including Ash (Campbell), drive to a remote cabin in the woods for a weekend of fun. Little do they realize that their fun will soon turn to fear, as an unstoppable supernatural force has been unleashed, surrounding and trapping them. One by one, they fall victim to the demonic forces at large, resurrected as murderous demons which can only be destroyed by dismemberment. Only Ash is left to combat the evil before it consumes the world. It’ll be a fight to the death … and to the undeath.

For the release, two all-new 1080p anamorphic transfers in 1.85 and the original director-composed 1.33 aspect ratio, have been prepared and personally supervised by director/writer Raimi, as well as a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack.

A standard DVD (Disc 2) contains the following bonus features, many returning for the first time in years, and available only for a limited time: One By One We Will Take You: The Untold Saga of The Evil Dead, The Evil Dead: Treasures from the Cutting Room Floor, The Ladies Of The Evil Dead Meet Bruce Campbell, Book of The Dead: The Other Pages, Discovering The Evil Dead, Unconventional, and At The Drive-In.

'The Evil Dead' Blu-ray™ (Disc 1) contains an all-NEW audio commentary with Writer/Director Sam Raimi, Producer Robert Tapert and Star Bruce Campbell.
