While this marks maybe 20th reissue of the timeless Sam Raimi classic, this is possibly the best release yet. Not only does the Blu-ray come with unforgettable artwork, this is the first time the film is coming in 4K. Which means, of course, we’ll see even more of the best horror comedy ever made. Just think about it? The scene when Ash (Bruce Campbell) is fighting his own hand will now be crystal clear and better than ever. Tell me that doesn’t sound worth another double dip?

To pre-order your 4K Evil Dead II Steelbook, head on over to Zavvi. Just make sure you don’t run into any Deadites on the way….the woods are filling up.
