    My fave is also the Halloween Limited Edition that includes both the theatrical and tv versions of the movie. Comes with the cool cover and postcard and is one of my fave owned dvds period.

    I'd have to go with Dawn of the Dead. The set is amazing for fans of the movie like me including all versions ever existing, great extras, etc. I own that one, but i'd love to see the halloween releases from anchor bay.

    The Evil Dead Book of the Dead is my favorite Anchor Bay release simply because The Evil Dead is one of my favorite horror films and this particular release was one of my first DVD purchases.

    So many to choose from, but I've always loved the commentary for C.H.U.D. so I'm going to vote for that release.

    I love my Dawn UE set, my Evil Dead Book of the Dead, but my 2-Disc Day of the Dead Anchor Bay collection is fantastic. Love the diary that's included, and the second disc is full of cool extras. Love it!

    Halloween 2-disc Limited Edition, released way back in 1999 would also be my favorite. The 3-D Lenticular cover is great, as is having the extended TV cut of the film on the second disc. I actually scored that brand new on ebay for only $10 many years ago. My copy is #0880

    I have at least 200+ AB DVD's in my collection, and many are cherished! :evil:

    I have to go with a somewhat unusual choice here. While I own most of the films that are listed, and love those DVDs, I am most thankful for Anchor Bay releasing CRIME STORY: Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD.

    The OOP season 1 box has a beautiful cover and some great liner notes regarding Michael Mann's brilliant show. The discs are somewhat dissapointing in that there are really no bonus features, and the transfers can't compare with AB film titles (they're really quite poor) this is just something I'm proud to own. Love it.

    I have to also go with the 2 disc LE of Halloween. I love this release. I couldn't find it anywere nearby, and I called every place I could think of in a ten county region. I finally found it in Canton, Ohio, and drove 90 minutes to and fro to get a copy. My LE # is 28449.

    My favorite AB DVD release is the Ultimate Evil Dead Set -

    It basically has everything except for one minor detail - it didn't include the short Within The Woods! Other than that, Its a good release.

    Suspiria (3 Disc Limited Edition) for sure. AB has a habit of releasing and rereleasing so many titles so to go from a time with no Suspiria DVD to this full stuffed edition was a treat. If the first Halloween DVD by AB had as many extras on it's first go around, I would have went with that, but right now, it's Suspiria all the way. Can't argue with getting the soundtrack right there with the DVD too.

    Shit, so many choices. Anchor Bay does a great job with their titles, despite re-releasing them about 50 times or whatever. I'm going to go with the Dawn of the Dead: Ultimate Edition set. I still haven't finished it for some reason. A close second would be the Evil Dead releases.

    In regards to Dawn of the Dead, What more could you ask for?

    The Beyond.

    First of all I have quite a big screen to project my dvds, and Beyond, of all AC dvds, looks wonderful. It actually has one of the best transfers I have ever seen - a real joy to behold.

    Then there's the weight of this commentary. Just listening to the tired but still joyfull voice of Warbeck, his jokes and the great chemistry he has with Catriona is a seperate movie of it's own.

    Add to that the unbelievable 5.1. remix, the Fulci interviews, the photos and the hidden eggs (Cat In The Brain's trailer kicks ass) and you have the perfect release.

    And I have the tin box.
