Sam Raimi’s “The Evil Dead” with Bruce Campbell on 4K UHD Blu-ray in October

The 1981 Sam Raimi film The Evil Dead starring Bruce Campbell is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 9th via Lionsgate. Tech specs for the release include full 2160p 4K video presented in both the 16×9 aspect ratio (1.85:1) and the original 4×3 aspect ratio (1.33:1) in both Dolby Vision and HDR10 forms of High Dynamic Range. The audio set to be included on the release is sadly just Dolby TrueHD 5.1 – the exact as offered up on the previous Blu-ray. A bit of a step in the wrong direction there, it would seem.

UPDATE: The release is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon and Best Buy.

Bonus materials set to be included on the release appear to be identical to the previous Blu-ray release, in fact this will come in the form of a “combo pack” with a Blu-ray Disc and Digital Copy of the film included. In the meantime, you can check out our Blu-ray Screenshots from the original release, in both aspect ratios, and including DVD comparisons. Further info about the upcoming 4K release can be found below, after the break, from the official announcement.
