    I was in a local shop and I saw a copy of the Evil Dead. This one was a DTS remastered version but it didn't come with the book. Infact, it had a regular case. I would like to know if the disc is the same disc minus the collectors Book of the Dead cover?

    The Book of the Dead version has at least 2 more extras. The excellent 26-minute Fanalysis documentary by Bruce Campbell. And the 13-minute retrospective of how the film was conceived and brought to screen.

    Although I don't own both, I can't imagine the A/V being any different. Both were released by Anchor Bay on the same day in March 2002. The Book of the Dead was for the cultish fans and other geek types. [​IMG]

    I was at Blockbuster yesterday and they have a keep-case version of "Evil Dead" and the cover proclaims "contains over an hour of new material!". Looking at the back of the box, it lists DTS, Fanalysis, and the new documentary. In the lower corner, it stated "Contains material from Evil Dead Book of the Dead."

    What's up with that?

    Jimmy!

    More than likely,

    Acnhor Bay created a keepcase version of the Book of The Dead disc for rental only.

    You can download and print a jacket for a case

    if you want to keep your Book of The Dead disc

    in a plastic case. It is on the Anchor bay Site.

    Note that the jacket on the site has the bar code

    section blank, so you can't mistake it for a store

    sold disc in a case.

    I didn't get my BotD until today, because the shop didn't have any copies in stock...
