Evil Dead (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment) Many remakes disappoint and are pale imitations of their predecessor, but Evil Dead, which garnered a solid $54 million at the box-office, didn’t suffer such a fate. Sam Raimi, the director behind the original, is a producer on this version.

The picture, directed by promising filmmaker (and lifelong horror aficionado)  Fede Alvarez, head to Blu-ray and DVD on July 16th.  Blu-ray owners will receive two exclusive featurettes plus the cast and commentary track.  Here’s the special features details for both editions:
