'Evil Dead 2' 4K Trailer Is Ready To Swallow Your Soul

Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 are very different films, even if they're essentially telling the same story. Sam Raimi's first Evil Dead is attempting to be a serious horror movie, while Evil Dead 2 slips into slapstick comedy territory. That slapstick angle seems to be the one people remember the most when they think of Evil Dead, making the sequel the far more prominent film. Now Studio Canal is releasing an Evil Dead 2 4K Blu-ray in the 4K, and there's a new trailer ready to swallow your soul. Watch the Evil Dead 2 4K trailer below.

Evil Dead 2 4K Trailer

When you think Evil Dead, I bet you immediately think of over-the-top comedy, Bruce Campbell hamming it up, and the infamous chainsaw-hand. But here's the thing: none of that is in Evil Dead. It's actually in Evil Dead 2, which was a kind of remake of and sequel to the first film. The first Evil Dead is, for the most part, serious. When it came time to make a sequel, director Sam Raimi took a different approach, and turned the film into a Three Stooges episode with gore. For whatever reason, the sequel is the film that stuck in the collective consciousness.

Now Evil Dead 2 is getting a groovy new 4K release in the UK via Studio Canal. You can get a sense of the new transfer in the fun trailer above, which also teases the special features – including an exclusive interview with horror-loving filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, and an interview with Edgar Wright.

    After the shocking and notorious cult classic THE EVIL DEAD impaled its way into the minds of a whole generation, visionary maverick director Sam Raimi decided to elaborate on its twisted scenario. Featuring B-movie legend Bruce Campbell in his most iconic role, EVIL DEAD 2 is a gore-fuelled, splatstick masterpiece that gleefully stomps on the entrails of good taste whilst puking in the face of Hollywood with no apologies.
