Five friends travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release a horde of Kandarian Demons seeking to possess or murder anyone they come across. Shot at a remote cabin in Morristown, Tennessee, director Sam Raimi’s iconic film set the standard for low-budget horror and made a cult sensation out of lead actor Bruce Campbell.
This special edition of EVIL DEAD presents the horror classic for the first time with a reimagined score by original composer Joseph LoDuca and a thrilling new 5.1 surround sound mix created by Marti Humphrey and Jussi Tegelman, the award-winning sound crew behind DRAG ME TO HELL and ASH VS. EVIL DEAD.
Star Bruce Campbell explains, "Mixing the sound for EVIL DEAD in the early ‘80s, we were forced to shove everything into one monaural box. As a result, Joe LoDuca's great score had to compete unfairly with the Kandarian Demons’ gore sound effects and lots of screaming. With this new release, Joe can finally have his dynamic composition mixed, balanced and featured properly—for perhaps the first time ever!"
