UPDATE: It now also appears that either the original 1981 film or the 2013 film (“Evil Dead”) will also be coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray in October as well. It’s a bit confusing at this point, and still a rumor.
According to an early alert to UK retailer Zavvi, a 4K UHD Blu-ray Steelbook is going to be released of the 1987 Sam Raimi directed film “Evil Dead II” on October 29th in the UK via StudioCanal. It’s likely we will see this 4K UHD Blu-ray release come statesidearound that time, probably right before Halloween. My guess would be we will see it released by Lionsgate in the United States on either October 23rd or October 30th, as they both fall on Tuesdays and are right before Halloween. As with all “rumors” take this with a grain of salt so-to-speak until we see official confirmation. Stay tuned for further updates. This news was originally reported by Bloody Disgusting.
Retailer Best Buy has scored an Exclusive with “Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3” on Blu-rayDisc in a Steelbook (pictured above) that will be available on August 21st via Lionsgate. That Steelbook is available now for pre-order over at Best Buy. This, the final season of the show featuring Bruce Campbell, will also be available in a normal Blu-ray Disc release, which you can also find for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon. Tech specs on the release include full 1080p HD video in the 1.78:1 aspect ratio and Dolby TrueHD 7.1 sound. Bonus materials include:

TV show “Ash vs Evil Dead: The Complete Third Season” is coming to Blu-ray Disc in a 2-Disc set on August 21st via Starz (distributed by Lionsgate). The TV show, starring Bruce Campbell, sadly was cancelled and this was the final season, as some of you may have read in the news. The Blu-ray of the third season is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon. Tech specs include full 1080p HD video in the 1.78:1 aspect ratio and Dolby TrueHD 7.1 sound. Bonus materials are sadly limited to just “audio commentary with executive producer Rob Tapert on every single episode.”
