It's a shame there will be no new extras, there haven't really been any major new extras for ED1 since the Anchor Bay Ultimate Edition 3-disc 2007 DVD, and ED2 since the 2011 US Lionsgate Widescreen Blu-Ray.

First review for The Evil Dead 4K Ultra and it is now officially the best the film has ever looked! Please note, the screencaps come from the standard Blu-ray:

UPDATE 10/13: Caps-A-Holic Comparison (and based on Screenshot 8, it's possibly the 4K release is the original unaltered/tweakless version!):

And the 4K Restoration trailer for Evil Dead 2:

Is it just me or are they using the Divimax transfer for the trailer?
