Set for release on Tuesday, Nov. 16 with a price tag of $79.99 USD, The Evil Dead Groovy Collection includes The Evil DeadEvil Dead II and Ash vs Evil Dead Seasons 1-3. The two movies come on both 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray discs, while the TV show is only on Blu-ray.

“Horror fans, return to that iconic cabin in the woods, then travel decades beyond it, with this Evil Dead Groovy Collection,” an official synopsis for the set reads. “Wisecracking ladies’ man Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) is reborn as a slayer of Deadites in The Evil Dead (4K + Blu-ray™) after a vacation in the country is ruined by the reading of an ancient demon-summoning text. In Evil Dead II (4K + Blu-ray™), a chainsaw-armed Ash is pushed to the brink of madness by unhinged evil yet again, while ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ (Blu-ray™) follows an older, grayer Ash over three wild seasons as he reckons with his bloody past in the face of a Deadite plague.”
