Evil Dead Trilogy
The ultimate experience in gruelling terror
The greatest horror trilogy of all time will be unleashed together for the first time on 28th July 2003 when Anchor Bay UK releases SAM RAIMI'S THE EVIL DEAD TRILOGY BOXED SET – a special 4-disc collection comprising THE EVIL DEAD, EVIL DEAD II, the Director's Cut of ARMY OF DARKNESS, plus the original 4 x 3 format presentation of THE EVIL DEAD. Each disc in the set comes complete with a host of special features, some exclusive to this release, making this one collection horror fans will not want to miss.
THE EVIL DEAD
The gruesome granddaddy of modern day horror, Sam Raimi's original 1981 classic THE EVIL DEAD has been hailed by horror writer Stephen King as "the most ferociously original horror movie I have ever seen" and in the UK was one of the first horror films to be labelled as a "video nasty."
Off for a weekend of fun in a remote cabin in the woods, five young friends unwittingly release a powerful force of unspeakable evil from the pages of the Necronomicon, the Book of the Dead. Possession, murder and dismemberment follow in rapid succession as Ash (Bruce Campbell), the one uncorrupted member of the group, fights for survival against his former friends who have joined the legion of the evil dead.
Special features include widescreen presentation (1.85:1 enhanced for 16 x 9 TVs), Dolby 5.1 Surround sound, Digital Surround 6.1 DTS-ES, 2.0 Dolby Surround (French and English), audio commentary by writer-director Sam Raimi and producer Robert Tapert, audio commentary by star Bruce Campbell, biographies of Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert, theatrical trailer, TV spots, "Fanalysis" – a 26-minute documentary by Bruce Campbell, "Discovering The Evil Dead" featurette, outtakes and deleted scenes, gallery containing 137 stills, and a hidden "Easter egg".
EVIL DEAD II
The first sequel to Sam Raimi's horror masterpiece, EVIL DEAD II sees Ash (Bruce Campbell) continuing his battle with the evil dead, initially in the demon form of his girlfriend, Linda (Denise Bixler). Meanwhile, relatives and associates of the cabin's original owner are en route to the cabin with newly found pages from the Necronomicon.
EVIL DEAD II manages to successfully marry outrageous comedy with nail-biting terror as Ash is forced to resort to progressively extreme measures in order to maintain his sanity and conquer the demonic forces threatening his life.
Special features include audio commentary by Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert and Bruce Campbell, trailer and making-of featurette.
ARMY OF DARKNESS
Immediately following the events of Evil Dead II, ARMY OF DARKNESS finds Ash (Bruce Campbell) transported to Medieval England, where the occupants of a local castle are under siege from the supernaturally evil Deadites. Hailed as the deliverer of the Necronomicon and the saviour of the living, he must employ his 20th Century wits and skills to overcome his evil self, before destroying his possessed medieval girlfriend and the entire Army of Darkness in a battle to save the living from the dead.
ARMY OF DARKNESS is a cult horror-comedy of epic proportions starring Bruce Campbell (Spider-Man), Embeth Davidtz (Thirteen Ghosts, The Hole, Schindler's List), Patricia Tallman (TV's Babylon 5) and director Bernard Rose (Candyman, Immortal Beloved, Ivansxtc), and featuring cameos by Bridget Fonda (Kiss Of The Dragon, A Simple Plan), Ted Raimi (Spider-Man, TV's Xena: Warrior Princess), co-writer Ivan Raimi and cult horror director William Lustig (Maniac).
Special features include director's cut, widescreen presentation (1.85:1 enhanced for 16 x 9 TVs), 15 minutes of additional footage including the original ending, audio commentary by Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and writer Ivan Raimi, 4 never-before-seen deleted scenes and director's storyboards.
DISC 4 – THE EVIL DEAD
The fourth disc in the boxed set presents the eponymous first film in THE EVIL DEAD trilogy in its original 4 x 3 format (1.33:1 Full Screen Unmatted) and includes several extras exclusive to this edition, making it a must-have for all Evil Dead fans and collectors.

Undoubtedly one of the biggest horror DVD releases of the year, SAM RAIMI'S THE EVIL DEAD TRILOGY BOXED SET (cert. 18) will be released as a 4-disc DVD edition (£29.99) by Anchor Bay UK on 28th July 2003.
