The best DVD for each Evil dead movie?


#1

hey do any of you know the best version to get for each movie. for Evil dead, Evil dead 2 and army of darkness.



i heard that the region 3 dvd for AOD was the best for that but im not 100% sure and dont have a clue about the others.


#2

This is the R.2 4 Disc box set I own…







And here’s some DVD details:http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=5502



I think this is the best collection… Although ‘Army Of Darkness’ Does not have the K-Mart

Alternative ending. For some strange reason. Anyone know why?

I have The Book of The Dead edition of the first film. This, and most of other releases feature widescreen (1.85:1) version of the film. The problem is that the original aspect ration is full screen (1.33:1). Personally I didn’t find this too distracting. The British Box set includes both versions of the film.



Region 3 version of Army of Darkness is the best one available. It’s director’s cut and features the best picture quality.

If you want the director’s cut of AOD, you’ll have to buy all films separately. Otherwise the British box set seems to be the best choice.

ok i was thinking about the book of the dead edition, so region 3 for AOD and what about evil dead 2.


#5

Not sure about Evil Dead 2. I have the Scandinavian release, which I believe has the same transfer as Anchor Bay’s R1 (new release) & Monumentum’s UK release. Anchor Bay or Monumentum is probably the best choice. They are uncut and anamorphic and feature some nice extras.

i found the monumentum on at a good price so i guess ill go with that.

Come On, Just ONE More ‘Evil Dead’ DVD…



Not that the other twenty editions weren;t enough, Davis DVD reports, “It’s back to the “Evil Dead” well for another helping of ghoulish mayhem with Anchor Bay’s Evil Dead 2: Book of the Dead 2. Director Sam Raimi’s kick-ass sequel gets a wicked re-release this time around with its very own collectible Necronomicon “Book of the Dead” packaging designed, once again, by special effects guru Tom Sullivan. As an added bonus over the last Necronomicon release, you’ll be able to press the bulging eye to hear the book scream! Look for the disc itself to feature the first ever high-definition Divimax transfer of this classic film, along with new and exciting bonus materials. No street date yet, so stay tuned.” Awww no collectible tin?

Wow, great news. My Book of the Dead edition of the first film looks pretty cool alone, but having two (or maybe even three) of them in a row… :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:
