Fans of the EVIL DEAD team will finally be able to complete
their disc collections, as the gang’s heretofore hard-to-find black comedy
CRIMEWAVE is coming home this spring. We got a couple of exclusive bits of info
of what will be coming with it, along with the cover art.
Shout! Factory releases
CRIMEWAVE in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack May 14. The first film by director Sam
Raimi and producers Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell, who also has a supporting
role as “Renaldo the Heel,” following THE EVIL DEAD, it’s the bizarre story
(scripted by Raimi, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen) of a security guard (Reed Birney)
framed for murder, who flashes back to his story while sitting in the electric
chair. The real killers are a couple of exterminators (Brion James and Paul L.
Smith) who double as hitmen, who set out to eliminate the man who hired them
and his wife (Louise Lasser). The discs will present the movie in anamorphic
1.78:1 widescreen, with Dolby Digital sound on the DVD and DTS-HD Master Audio
on the Blu-ray. Fango got the scoop that special features will include audio
commentary by Campbell, plus new interviews with Campbell and others involved
with the film; retail price is $26.99, and you can pre-order it here. Look for a retrospective article on CRIMEWAVE with Campbell and Tapert’s comments in Fango #322, on sale next
month, along with a vintage interview with co-star James.
