• Let Evil Dead Rise Possess Your 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Collection June 27

    Posted Mon May 8, 2023 at 12:47 PM PDT by

    Director Lee Cronin keeps the blood flowing in the next chapter in Sam Raimi's iconic franchise arriving on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD on June 27. Digital will be available on May 9.

    In “Evil Dead Rise,” the action moves out of the woods and into the city, and tells a twisted tale of two estranged sisters, played by Lily Sullivan and Alyssa Sutherland, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh-possessing demons, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.

    Both the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray will include a Dolby Atmos, however special features haven't been revealed yet.

    In the U.K. there's also an Evil Dead Rise - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray SteelBook option, but we haven't seen that appear for pre-order anywhere here stateside, yet. That could change (and hopefully it will).

    Suggested retail price for the 4K UHD Blu-ray is $44.98 and the Blu-ray is $34.98 - but Amazon already has them on sale.

    Gimmie some 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray sugar baby.


    At long last, Scream Factory has offered up full details for their upcoming October 4th, 2022 release of Army of Darkness on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. Sam Raimi's third entry in the long-running Evil Dead franchise is an endearing fan favorite with a legion of loyal Deadite followers. Everyone has a favorite cut of the film and this set looks to give fans a little something of everything. Although it looks like only the original - and very short - Theatrical Cut will be getting the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray with Dolby Vision HDR Upgrade. Have a look below for all the details for the Standard Edition or Limited Edition SteelBook of Army of Darkness

    DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, 2.0 (International Cut)

    Sadly, it doesn't look like we're getting all of the cuts of the film in 4K after all. There was some hope that the International Cut and the Director's Cut would be getting the full 4K treatment but it doesn't look that way. We've reached out for confirmation since Press Releases are notoriously incomplete in a lot of the tech specs but given complicated rights issues on top of the condition of available elements, I'm not surprised only the Theatrical Cut is going to get the Dolby Vision treatment. I know some folks may be tired of picking this one up, but after decades of various VHS, DVDs, and Blu-rays, I highly doubt this first outing on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray will be the one and only 4K disc released.

    Here's the full press release for your enjoyment...


    ARMY OF DARKNESS

     (COLLECTOR’S EDITION)

    ARRIVES ON 4K UHD + BLU-RAY™ AND IN A LIMITED EDITION STEELBOOK ON OCTOBER 4, 2022 FROM SCREAM FACTORY

    Los Angeles, CA – Scream Factory™ is releasing Army of Darkness (Collector’s Edition) on 4K UHD + Blu-Ray™ and in a Limited Edition Steelbook on October 4, 2022. The release of the comedy horror film features a 4K scan of the Original Camera Negative, marking its first-time Ultra High-Definition release. Fans of this third installment of the popular Evil Dead phenomenon can pre-order their copies on ShoutFactory.com and other fine retailers.

    Bound in human flesh and inked in blood, the ancient "Necronomicon" – the Book of the Dead – unleashes unspeakable evil upon mankind in director Sam Raimi's (Darkman, Drag Me To Hell) outrageously hilarious third chapter in his Evil Dead Trilogy.

    Back to do battle with the hideous "Deadites," Bruce Campbell returns to the role of Ash, the handsome, shotgun-toting, chainsaw-armed department store clerk from S-Mart's housewares division. Demonic forces time warp him – and his '73 Oldsmobile – into England's Dark Ages, where he romances a beauty (Embeth Davidtz, The Amazing Spider-Man) and faces legions of the undead. Can Ash save the living from the evil dead, rescue his girlfriend, and get back to his own time?
