Anchor Bay has released the Blu-ray cover art, along with a clip from the new audio commentary coming to The Evil Dead Blu-ray release on August 31st.
Easily one of the most requested titles for Blu-ray from Anchor Bay Entertainment’s library of horror films, Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult classic The Evil Dead will officially make its high definition debut with The Evil Dead Blu-ray. For the release, two all-new 1080p anamorphic transfers, in 1.85 and the original director-composed 1.33 aspect ratio, have been prepared and personally supervised by director/writer Raimi, presented in high-resolution Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio, along with a brand new commentary track with Raimi, producer Robert Tapert and star Bruce “Ash” Campbell. In addition, many of the bonus features, released on previous DVD editions, will once again be available on a special, limited edition DVD included inside the Blu-ray package.
A standard Evil Dead DVD (Disc 2) contains the following bonus features, many returning for the first time in years, and available only for a limited time:
- One By One We Will Take You: The Untold Saga of The Evil Dead
- The Evil Dead: Treasures from the Cutting Room Floor
- The Ladies Of The Evil Dead Meet Bruce Campbell
- Book of The Dead: The Other Pages

- At The Drive-In
Below is a clip from the all-new Bruce Campbell audio commentary, in which Campbell talks about how filming The Evil Dead gave him a form of post-traumatic stress.
