‘Evil Dead’ Remake Gets Unleashed on Blu-ray and DVD This Summer

Evil Dead remake logoWord of mouth from critics and fans alike for the Evil Dead remake were generally great and if it makes any difference, I loved the film.  Those of you who didn’t get the chance to see the film during its theatrical run will be happy to know that Sony is releasing Evil Dead on Blu-Ray and DVD this Summer, July 16th to be exact.

A core cast of young, fresh talent includes Jane Levy (Suburgatory) as Mia; Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood) as David; Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) as Eric; Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) as Olivia and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) as Natalie.

The Evil Dead has been rated R for “strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language. Look for it in theaters on April 5th, 2013.

Plot Synopsis

In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
