    I should be getting some soon, BUT I highly recommend you wait and dont buy them. Someone posted in a PSP forum that the transfer for Evil Dead is in a weird 4x3 widescreen ratio. Its essentially like watching a memory stick movie on a UMD, with no true widescreen support.


    Ill try to confirm this as soon as possible.

    the Evil dead is a 4:3 movie unless your talking about the matted transfer

    I don't know about Evil Dead, but the Anchor Bay/Manga release of Blood: The Last Vampire is also presented widescreen within a centered 4x3 frame. It has to be a mastering error of some sort. I sent an email complaint to Manga, but perhaps Anchor Bay is the correct studio to receive it.

    you can still buy Time Bandits though.
    It's actually a nice little buy.

    I beleive the UMD version of Evil dead has been matted to a Widescreen presentation. Some DVD Versions have done this in the past.
