The Evil Dead (4K Remaster with New Score - Canadian Premiere!)
9:30pm - Tuesday, Sep 24, 2019
Grindhouse Releasing is bringing Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD to the Rio Theatre for a bloody gore-geous Canadian Premiere - for the first time in 4K, and with a terrifying new soundtrack!
This special edition of THE EVIL DEAD presents the horror classic for the first time with a re-imagined score by original composer Joseph LoDuca and a thrilling 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.
Star BRUCE CAMPBELL explains, "Mixing the sound for 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 original 16mm camera negatives, and brought the stunning 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.”
