Although the Screwhead Edition of Army of Darkness hit Blu-ray late last year, some say it has not done justice to this epoch of cult madness.
Label Via Vision have seen fit to make amends, releasing what looks to be the best looking Army of Darkness Bluray yet!

Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness: The Necronomicon. It will be available to buy as a triple-disc DVD and Blu-ray set from June 6.

A boxed set that boasts the third and final installment of the much beloved Evil Dead film cycle, Army of Darkness: The Necronomicon contains both versions of Army of Darkness (Theatrical and Director's Cut), a litany of special features and comes packaged in a one-off deluxe presentation.


In addition to the high definition original theatrical release offered on Blu-ray this volume also includes DVD versions of the theatrical and director's cut, 12 hand drawn pages from the Book of the Dead and extras all housed in a collectable rubber Necronomicon pack.

Bonus materials are many and include original drawings, documentary, 'Creating the Deadites', which explores the creation of the ground breaking visual effects, alternate ending, deleted scenes and audio commentary with Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell who also provide comments and recollections for the director's cut and deleted scenes.


"This is a great event with which Via Vision is naturally excited to be associated with," says Nick Wayman, Via Vision Entertainment Executive. "The release is packed with materials that make this a must have for fans who love the Evil Dead trilogy, action and horror buffs and collectors of modern film classics."

I can only hope horror fans are as excited as we are! Watch this space for a more in-depth review of the box set when it becomes available!

    I really just want a Deltamac Blu-ray of the MGM version. I can only imagine that MGM must be demanding a small fortune for rights for anyone to use their version, particularly in Region A countries. Probably a not-so-small fortune.
