    guys, i was hoping you might be able to help me out i have just received the botd limited edition and the elite version of evil dead and was wanting to pick up the sequels, i know that there have been multiple versions of the discs from researching the many posts here and elsewere. my main question is should i track down dead by dawn limited edition tin and army of darkness deluxe limited edition 2 disc?. or do anchor bay have updates of the above coming soon? (checked on anchor bays website in the coming soon section and i couldnt see any mention of new releases for the above). any advice would be most welcome.

    Evil Dead 2: Get the tin if you like tins. Otherwise, get the exact same version in the unlimited AB edition. Avoid the Universal release.
    AOD: You can get the exact same content of the 2-disc LE by getting the Anchor Bay Theatrical Cut disc and the Anchor Bay Official Bootleg Edition disc.
    And as for the question of 'will AB release new versions in the future?', well, there are no plans at the moment, but I'm convinced that the only things in life that are certain are death, taxes, and AB putting out new editions of the Evil Dead movies [​IMG]

    do you miss out on the booklet that came with the tin for evil dead 2 non tin version? and did army of darkness 2 disc limited come with any booklet or detailed notes? that you would miss out on if you purchased the versions mentioned.

    Yes, I think the ED2 tin did have a booklet. I've been less than impressed with the AB booklets in the past and decided to pass. YMMV.

    I've got the 2-disc LE of AOD and I don't recall it having any significant booklet.

    Can anyone tell me what the "Theatrical" version of AOD looks like? What's on the cover? I need to know, so I can purchase it...There are lots of different covers on these DVDs.
