I can only begin to count the ways that Anchor Bay UK are likely to screw this up. :frowning:

Some of the UK only supplements at the BBFC:

BRUCE CAMPBELL - GEEK OR GOD?
Run Time 7m 56s

EVIL DEAD - DEAD GOOD MARKETING
Run Time 9m 31s

Not particularly impressive.

No. They can replace a soundtrack.

The licencing issues are to do with one of the artists (either a actor or a behind the scenes talent) not wanting the short released.

All the PAL versions of Anchor Bay titles I have seen so far are converted from NTSC and not real PAL transfers. Even the ones release by Universal!

I have both the R1 and R2 UK editions of the book of the dead edition of Evil Dead and the R1 beats the R2 in picture quality.

Just to bring this up, I noticed last night that the unmatted Evil Dead on the "bonus disc" runs for a couple of minutes or so longer than the 185:1 matted version. (Sorry, I don't have the exact timings to hand).

Does anyone know why? Is more footage included or (more likely) it's due to the various Film/PAL/NTSC conversion method choosen?
