Horror movies have never seen the likes of him since, and are never likely to again. He is the ultimate hero, fantastically unhinged and the sole survivor of an horrific zombie holocaust. He will be the man who goes on to battle the medieval dead with a chainsaw for an arm and the ability to chew through lines in a way that Jack Palance could only dream of. He is Ash. Destroyer of the Dead. The ultimate b-movie hero. Bruce Campbell once again returns to fill the characters size 14 shoes in the gore-fuelled splatstick masterpiece that is EVIL DEAD II.
The cult classic EVIL DEAD from visionary director Sam Raimi quickly became one of the original video nasties and this follow up has now been given the 1080p High Definition Blu-Ray treatment allowing the full impact of the gory masterpiece to shine through on our giant plasma screens.
The film speaks for itself. Raimi has gone on to become one of the most successful directors in movies today and Bruce Campbell has impaled himself on the minds of horror fans everywhere.
With special features and extras galore, this Blu-Ray revisits every aspect of the movies production with over 20 cast and crew members plus loads of existing content, all in the new high def format.
The Blu-Ray is out on Monday 8th April and you would be mad to miss it.
April 19th also sees the release of the hotly anticipated remake of the original EVIL DEAD. With promises of no CGI and a director (Fede Alvarez) hand picked by the original team of Raimi, Campbell and original producer Rob Tapert it promises to be another glorious not to be missed gorefest.
Keep up the good work StudioCanal and keep the classics coming.
