Evil Dead Returning To Theatres In 4K With New Score

Evil Dead Returning To Theatres In 4K With New Score 2

Grindhouse Releasing is bringing Sam Raimi’s horror classic Evil Dead to theaters in 4K for the first time with a new soundtrack in tow.

This special edition of Evil Dead presents the film with a reimagined score by original composer Joseph LoDuca and a new 5.1 surround mix created by Marti Humphrey and Jussi Tegelman, the award-winning sound crew behind Drag Me to Hell and Ash vs. Evil Dead.

As 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 dead original 16mm camera negatives, and brought the 4K transfer together with LoDuca’s new soundtrack. Murawski is an Oscar-winning film editor whose work with Sam Raimi includes Darkman, Army of Darkness, The Gift, Spider Man 1, 2 & 3, Drag Me to Hell and Ash vs. Evil Dead.

“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.”

This endeavour will probably be available soon, though exclusive-holder Bloody Disgusting had no dates to offer. For booking information on the old-but-improved Evil Dead, contact theatrical sales director David Szulkin at info@grindhousereleasing.com.
