Film4 (UK) is currently showing the extended version of the 2013 Evil Dead, AKA, the version of the film SONY refuses to release in any shape or form. It’s only been shown once by accident back in 2014, also by Channel 4, but the Channel said they gave back that copy to the distributor and said they were going to show it again.

Why or how they are showing it, I do not know. But me and my brother got a shock when we realised what version we were watching (and yes we did check and it is the extended edition).

As of the writing, the film is nearly over on normal Film4, but is still mostly on Film4+1.
