Fright Nights presents EVIL DEAD
This special edition of Evil Dead presents the horror classic in a stunning 4K transfer restored from the original 16mm camera negatives with a reimagined score by original composer Joseph LoDuca and a thrilling new 5.1 surround mix created by Marti Humphrey and Jussi Tegelman, the award-winning sound crew behind Drag Me To Hell and Ash vs Evil Dead. (1981, NC-17, 85mins)
“Mixing the sound for ‘Evil Dead’ in the early 80’s, we were forced to shove everything into one monaural box. As a result, Joe LoDuca’s great score had to compete unfairly with Kandarian Demons, gore sound effects and lots of screaming. With this new release, Joe can finally have his dynamic composition mixed, balanced and featured properly – for perhaps the first time ever!” – Bruce Campbell
“With this fantastic new score, Joe LoDuca proves that he’s the Bartok of blood, the Shostakovich of shock, the Mahler of the macabre. The new music, new sound mix, and new 4K restoration have elevated ‘Evil Dead’ from the scary to the sublime.” – Bob Murawski
A benefit for Analogue Lab + Studio.
