    To close off the last week of our beloved month of horror, we have all sorts of goodies courtesy of Anchor Bay to give you. We've got copies of HALLOWEEN: COMMEMORATIVE SET, END OF THE LINE and SCARCE, as well as JACK BROOKS MONSTER SLAYER paraphernalia. All you have to do is tell us: what is your favorite Anchor Bay DVD?

    [​IMG]

    They have been around for years, starting out as one of the first companies to bring horror to DVD, and still the go-to company when it comes to major franchises like HALLOWEEN, EVIL DEAD, PHANTASM, Romero's DEAD series, MARIO BAVA and DARIO ARGENTO. Do you prefer their more Euro-heavy catalog of yore, or the Americanized one today? Their new-to-video titles or their older classics. There's quite the array to choose from, so make your choice well, and you could go home with prizes.

    Here's what the three winners will receive:

    1st Place:
    • HALLOWEEN: 30TH ANNIVERSAY COMMEMORATIVE SET
    • JACK BROOKS MONSTER SLAYER T-shirt
    • JACK BROOKS MONSTER SLAYER gift bag

    2nd Place:
    • END OF THE LINE DVD
    • SCARCE DVD
    • JACK BROOKS MONSTER SLAYER T-shirt
    • JACK BROOKS MONSTER SLAYER gift bag

    3rd Place:
    • END OF THE LINE DVD
    • SCARCE DVD
    • JACK BROOKS MONSTER SLAYER gift bag

    Winners will be randomly drawn on Halloween night, Friday, October 31st.

    All you have to do is post once in this thread telling us, what's your favorite Anchor Bay DVD?

    my favorite Anchor Bay DVD would have to be...

    my Maniac DVD, i love it sooo much.
    the audio and video are immaculate!
    i love the awesome Documentary for Joe Spinell, it is simply fantastic!
    the audio commentary is great as well.
    the Gallery of outrage (with all the negative comments on the film), and the insert with all the news paper clipings are a really nice touch.

    it is an overall fantastic disc! and my fave Anchor Bay DVD!

    Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Edition is probably the best of many great dvds from the Bay. I do want to thank them for bringing Fulci and Argento into my life though, but the DotD UE set is more than I ever hoped for one of my all time favorite movies. To finally see all the different cuts, all the docs, all in one case.

    They do lose points for the endless re-releases of the Evil Dead and Halloween series, esp. when most are just new covers and the same content. Also their customer service used to be among the best I've ever dealt with, and now is among the worst.

    My favorite AnchorBay Disc is the Hellgate/The Pit drive-in double feature from several years ago. The Pit is one of my seasonal favorites that I view often, it must have the most creepiest kid since the young man from Burial Ground that had the teat fetish! Hellgate had Horshack from Welcome Back Kotter in it but the film lacks the cult appeal of it's counterpart! One of my favorite AnchorBay purchases although the six packs are awesome as well.

    The Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Edition made me almost wet my pants, I still can't believe someone put a set like that together! Good thing I've loved that movie for so long, I'd be pretty bummed if they put a set like that out for a movie I was only indifferent to.

    Everyone hates on these, but not me. Couldn't ask for a better release of my all time favorite movie.

    My absolute favorite would be the Dawn of the Dead ultimate edition. Indeed a release that really lived up to its name. Also love the 3 disc Suspiria along with The Manitou and Race With the Devil.

    Several great ones. The Suspiria 3 disc set, the first Halloween 2 disc set with the television cut, The Beyond, Maniac & Let Sleeping Corpses Lie tins, the wooden Wicker Man box.

    My personal favorite is the Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Edition. Truly ULTIMATE!

    So many incredible releases like the first Army of Darkness 2 Disc Set, the Hellraiser and Beyond Tins as well as others, the Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Set and the Suspiria 3 disc set. I will have to say Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Set, since it is one of their most complete and definite releases. I love everything on that set and it was the first time I ever go to see the other versions of the film.
     
  15. My fave is...

    ... surely the Beyond Tin Box! That one is so amazing, that no word could ever describe it's beautiness!

    Halloween 2-disc LE. It was the first DVD I bought - got it before I even owned a DVD player! Halloween is a film I hold very near to my heart, and this had gotten a spin every Oct. 31st for the past 8 years.

    what's your favorite Anchor Bay DVD?

    The Beyond is FANTASTICALLY AMAZING A/V wise.

    Suspiria is a BRILLIANT release.

    True blueprints on how DVDs should be produced.

    My favorite would be the Phenomena DVD or even the Suspiria 2DVD/CD set.

    I'm going with the Halloween 2-disc LE as well...it's just perfect. When I bought this, it was the first time I was ever able to see the film in widescreen format. I thought I loved the film before, but it was like watching it for the first time.
