Has anyone reviewed this yet? I already own the first Elite edition, which has many of the same extras, and I'm curious how the new version compares. Basically, I want to know if the improved picture/sound and new extras justify an upgrade from the first edition.

Thanks, David -- that review answered most of my questions. It's unfortunate that the new version omits a bit of the commentary material, but that hour-long interview might be reason enough to upgrade.

I also have the Elite version.I bought it before I even got a DVD player.

I think the only difference is the new anamorphic transfer and soundtrack.

Same extras.

I watch the Millenium Edition friday night and I must say that I think its well worth the upgrade. The picture, while not exactly reference quality, looks better than the older Elite version and the Stuart Gordon/Brian Yuzna interview was very entertaining. I haven't had a chance to check out the other new extras yet. I know the commentary over the trailer been missing is a bit of a disappointment but I feel that the new transfer and extras more than make up for it.

Is this shorted or something? Deep Discount still hasn't shipped mine, and they've been very good with release dates lately. My last 6 or 7 discs from them have all arrived before release date.

I got mine the other day and yeah, the Dream Sequence is the Deleted Scene. The over all package is really nice. I have the earlier version, but I don't mind having this new edition.

The Best Buy's here in the SF bay area don't have any copies of this and have no idea when they will be getting them. The release date for this was April 30th. Tower Records is the only retail chain that i have found it at, unfortunetely i won't buy from Tower because they insist on charging full retail price for their CD's and DVD's. Get your act together Tower.

The tower at Noe & Market in the city discounts most new DVDs, have you tried Frys?

Yes I have tried 2 different Fry's with no luck and 2 best buys. I bought the Evil Dead book of the dead edition at BB for $29.99. Tower sells it for $49.99. That is robbery.

I love this movie - it looks great!!! A improvement over the old DVD.
It was delayed to May7 and I only saw one copy in my travels today.
I noticed this happening alot recently with other titles I searched for on release day and couldnt find until a week or so later.
