    I chose the Universal series. because they were well packed with commentary tracks, documentaries, etc.

    Besides, there were alot of them I don't have (But wish I did).

    Out of that list:

    A Universal Classic Monsters DVD. Probably Bride of Frankenstein.

    Evil Dead-Book of the Dead. You can't ask for cooler packaging.

    I haven't decided yet but most likely Phantasm. It's one of my favorite movies and the dvd is packed full. Even the disco remix of the theme is cool to have.

    Actually, even if you considered all your dvds to be crap, there would still have to be one piece of crap that was the best piece of crap out of the entire pile of crap, no?

    Unless all your crap is equal...........

    What I'm saying is that I'm still waiting for the best ever horror dvd. I have a lot of great films, but to consider them the best ever is tough. If I was going to choose a best ever it wouldn't be horror.. The Elephant Man. If I had to choose from the list above... Jaws.

    I love my Elite NOTLD disc. Not a month goes by that I don't pop it in the player at least once.

    Evil Dead II would be the best if I liked tins, but I never got the appeal there so I will have to go with the Book of the Dead edition of Evil Dead

    I had to pick OTHER because my favorite horror DVD's weren't on the list...The Nightmare on Elm St. Collection It is absolutely the best box set out there, IMO. I thought the 3-D kicked major buttocks, despite the complaints I've heard. Looks cool on my Sony 53". And the audio and pic quality is still up to the standards of 2004. New Line was always ahead of the pack in transfers and I think this set is brilliant.

    Of course, you can't beat the first film. But I like all of them at least to some degree. :banana:

    My personal vote for what I think is the best horror DVD edition ever released is either MGM's Carrie: Special Edition or MGM's Phantasm: Special Edition.

    They just hit so many bases for the Phantasm disc. I got almost everything I would want from a special feature for that movie. I loved every feature. The Angus Scrimm intro. The Fangoria commercial. The disco song and the full version of "Sittin' Here at Midnight." The 30-minute interview. The convention footage. That amazing photo gallery with everything- merchandising, fan art (I love some of the fan drawings they got together, more DVD's should include that!!), promotional posters from around the world (I adore this too, I love seeing how Asian countries and European countries market through posters these late '70s to early '80s horror movies). That wickedly cool Australian tv thing (I adore that so much, it's so fun to watch). The behind the scenes footage - it just feels like you're there (I just wish they had sound for it, like The Evil Dead's behind the scenes footage). The trailers and TV spots. The day I got that DVD home, I just fell into it. It was so awesome!

    And the Carrie special edition is a great example of a studio or DVD producer(s) who decided the movie was actually worth talking about for an hour and a half. And it is. And they interview almost every single person involved with the movie. And I'm still fascinated by those featurettes. They're probably the best interview featurettes on any horror DVD I've ever seen. I wish other companies would always hold these and Anchor Bay's The Dead Will Walk (for Dawn of the Dead) featurette as the standard for how all DVD documentaries and featurettes should be.

    The Beyond set has pretty much everything, it's almost ridiculous. I had to go with that one.
