New Evil Dead II Blu-ray Artwork and Damn Fuckin' Straight, Lionsgate!

.
Finally, after Anchor Bay stupidly took uneducated criticism to heart and produced the truly awful looking Book of the Dead DVD edition and utilized the same ruined master for their Blu-ray, there might still be hope for Sam Raimi's perennial horromedy  Evil Dead 2 to actually look like film again on video since over a decade. Fingers, toes, and naughty bits crossed...  

From Fangoria: "While chatting up all those Sam Raimi associates, Felsher has also been talking to them about EVIL DEAD II, which Lionsgate Home Entertainment issues on a new Blu-ray currently slated for November 15. While Felsher can’t reveal everything you can expect to find on this disc, he does tell us, “There will be a huge making-of documentary with over two dozen members of the cast and crew [including Campbell, pictured above], and much more. Also, Lionsgate is aware of how dissatisfied people were with the transfer on the previous EVIL DEAD II Blu-ray, and are taking steps to solve that issue for the new edition."
