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 mix.
Star Bruce Campbell explains, “Mixing the sound for Evil Dead in the early 80’s, we were forced to shove everything into one monaural box. As a result, Joe LoDuca’s great score had to compete unfairly with 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!”
Grindhouse Releasing owner Bob Murawski worked with Raimi to restore Evil Dead from the original 16mm camera negatives, and brought the stunning 4K transfer together with LoDuca’s new soundtrack.
“With this fantastic new score, Joe LoDuca proves that he’s the Bartok of blood, the Shostakovich of shock, the Mahler of the macabre.” Murawski said. ”The new music, new sound mix and new 4K restoration have elevated Evil Dead from the scary to the sublime.”
