West Coast Premiere | 4K Restoration
Do you remember watching THE EVIL DEAD for the first time? Have you ever wanted to recapture that feeling you had, watching one of the greatest horror movies of all time with fresh eyes (and ears)? Well, here’s your chance!
THE EVIL DEAD’s original composer Joseph LoDuca re-wrote and re-recorded the entire score, which Death Waltz Recording Company proudly released on vinyl back in 2018, but Joe has gone one step further: In collaboration with Oscar-Winning editor and owner of Grindhouse Releasing, Bob Murawski, he has not only added his newly-recorded music to the stunning 4K restoration of the film, but, under Sam Raimi’s supervision and working with the award-winning DRAG ME TO HELL sound crew, he has also created an entirely new sound effects mix, all in breath-taking 5.1 surround.
So, what we have here is one of the BEST horror films ever made with a brand new soundtrack that is more dynamic, more terrifying and more in line with Joe and Sam’s original vision of how the movie was meant to sound. Beyond Fest is thrilled to be bringing you the West Coast Premiere of this brand new Evil Dead experience.
We will also have a live set from Joe LoDuca before the film screens, performing select cues from THE EVIL DEAD with a live chamber orchestra. Death Waltz Recording Company has produced a commemorative version of the brand new rescore exclusively for Beyond Fest, pressed on 180g blue, neon green, and red splatter vinyl, housed inside an exclusive Necronomicon slipcase with a Beyond Fest obi strip! Join us for the ultimate experience in grueling terror…in a way you’ve never experienced before!
Director: Sam Raimi
