The fifth Evil Dead movie recently made a big bloody splash at theatres and streaming when it was released for audiences to chew on and enjoy. Now the announcement that the film will get a hard copy release on 4k Ultra HD and Blu-Ray starting June 27th. The UK already has a pre-order up for the Steelcase release at HMV. So far there is no word yet if Best Buy will have a Steelcase release or not.

EVIL DEAD RISE marks the return to the iconic horror franchise, written and directed by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground). The film stars Lily Sullivan (I Met a Girl, Barkskins), Alyssa Sutherland (New Gold Mountain, Vikings), Morgan Davies (The End, Storm Boy), Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence) and introducing Nell Fisher (Northspur).
Moving the action out of the woods and into the city, EVIL DEAD RISE tells a twisted tale of two estranged sisters, played by Sullivan and Sutherland, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh-possessing demons, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.
EVIL DEAD RISE is produced by long-time franchise producer Rob Tapert (Ash vs Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe) and executive produced by series creator and horror icon Sam Raimi and cult legend and “Ash” himself, Bruce Campbell.

For those wondering, yes the 4K disc is region-free, which likely means the UK version is also. The Blu-Ray and DVD versions are region locked, so just be aware of that.
The back cover doesn’t list any extras for the release, but hopefully, there will be a few surprises when the final disc hits the market.
