Making its second trip to high-def, Universal has announced a mid-May Blu-ray release for Sam Raimi's 'Army of Darkness.'
Originally released on HD DVD back in 2007 as a bare-bones edition, Universal will at last give the horror-comedy cult classic (the third in the 'Evil Dead' series) the deluxe high-def treatment on May 19, when the 'Army of Darkness: Screwhead Edition' comes to Blu-ray.
A mix of extras and exclusives new and old, bonus features include audio commentary with Raimi, co-writer Ivan Raimi and star Bruce Campbell, the "Men Behind the Army" featurette, additional footage, deleted scenes and alternate ending, and the theatrical trailers.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray is a picture-in-picture track with production photos, My Scenes, and BD-Live connectivity.
Tech specs will see a BD-25 single-layer disc with 1080p/ video (1.85:1), and a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround.
Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.
