.THE EVIL DEAD – BOOK OF THE DEAD SPECIAL EDITION (Anchor Bay UK). Available to buy on DVD from 22nd August 2005 (?9.99)
The gruesome granddaddy of modern day horror, Sam Raimi’s 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.’ Now, this landmark film is being reissued by Anchor Bay UK as part of an extras-packed, two-disc BOOK OF THE DEAD SPECIAL EDITION DVD.
Comprising the original THE EVIL DEAD, plus a bonus disc featuring Josh Becker’s film RUNNING TIME, starring Bruce Campbell, the discs come packaged in a limited edition facsimile of the Book of the Dead from the original movie, sculpted and illustrated by Tom Sullivan, the man responsible for THE EVIL DEAD’s special effects. This release presents the last ever chance for fans to lay their hands on this must sought after collector’s version of THE EVIL DEAD.
