Lionsgate is also prepping up a 4K Ultra release of Evil Dead 2 in the States.
It's great we are starting too see more horror releases on UHD. but, with something like this filmed in 16mm I really don't see the point, it ain't gonna look better than blu.
HDR might be enough for the upgrade.
Not only does HDR improve colors, but it also brings out more details in darker scenes, compared to SDR.
Fair enough, from my experience, I've not noticed any discernable difference.
Even if there isn't a great deal of improvement at least the price is right. It seems like most UHD titles have a $40-$45 retail.
This is one of the very few titles that I don't want in a super hi-def format; this, and TCM. I prefer playing my Elite DVD. But that's just me.
In a low budget film like this, bringing out minute details may not be desirable. Last thing you want is all of the seams exposed, so to speak.
I'm curious to how this turns out but like Halloween, I'll wait for reviews.
Speaking of Lionsgate, I wish they would release House of 1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects on UHD. DR mainly so they can port over that damn documentary that is missing from the BD release!
And Basic Instinct!!! It's one of the shittiest looking blu-rays on the market.
American Psycho is a pretty shitty blu-ray as well. I'm glad that one is getting the 4k upgrade.

Were there always UFO's in The Evil Dead?
Could this mean that the 4K Ultra transfer is from the original unaltered version?!
That'd be interesting. Off the top of my head the two major differences are the zoom in on Shelley when she first appears possessed making it a close up (original it was a medium to wide shot). And the lighting bolt hitting the tree was cut out completely towards the end I believe. And overall it had more of a blue tinge on video releases but later gained a more red hue to liven up the faces and I suppose gore.
While the color range looks more broader and better compressed, I'm not seeing a significant color difference. So I would think this is the same color work. And probably the same Digital Intermediate.
Would love to see the changes brought back to how this way originally made. They're minor changes so not something I get bent out of shape over, but warts and all this film earned its notoriety the way it was and that's what we should be seeing today. I'm curious if my AB VHS is that way or not. I might not have even original seen the film that way. I think I still have that around somewhere...
They are re-releasing Evil Dead in the theaters here in Sweden on Oct 23rd! Guess it's being re-released all around the world?
Can't wait to see it on the big screen. My girlfriend haven't seen it yet, so what a spectacular way to introduce the movie to her
Those were made for the 1998 Anchor Bay/Elite releases by Sam Raimi. They returned to their unaltered state with the 2001 widescreen version where they have been that way since.
I think these releases are great for the format. Seems like every format is quickly supported by horror enthusiasts. Laser,DVD, bluray...all had great genre releases. Now uhd. Let's see if Shout factory and some others get on board soon.
Can't afford a projector at this point but still follow the format with interest.
I'd forgotten, but my 2016 October viewing even referenced that I was able to watch the original version: http://www.horrordvds.com/community...thread-2016-edition.47793/page-31#post-823040
What do you mean then by "original unaltered version"? Just that?
Glad you asked. This page will give you all the info you need.:
