the only way i'll get this is if within the woods is included
I don't think Raimi ever publicly said anything one way or the other. Anyways another remastering is absolutely necessary.
I'll admit to being slightly more optimistic now, but these are still just early rumors and could be killed just as easily as the early rumors for the Divimax release were.
Then your cash is probably safe and sound...
I've only ever owned two DVD's of the Evil Dead so I really haven't felt the sting of Anchor Bay's re-releases. I'm excited for this.
Only way i am buying is if its fullscreen and remastered
I haven't seen that original one since the theater in the 80's. I'd buy it on B'ray if it's remastered, 5.1/7.1 DTS MA and dare I say 1.85 screen ratio. I did own a 1976 Oldsmobile Delta 88 four door hard top with a Saddle colored exterior, White roof and Buckskin vinyl interior. It had the Olds. L-34 350 V-8 engine with a TH375 3-spd. automatic trans. If it were three years older it would have been identical to Bruce's, of course his had a rocket motor in it, and by the looks of the shot in the following movie when they pulled the motor out of it, it was a 350 as opposed to a 455. both of them probably drop the same, although I never got the oppertunity to test mine out that way.
Yeah, I want a 1.33:1 transfer and I would not mind the old color composition over the newer one.
Oh, all right, you made me feel bad.
I'm not necessarily complaining about the new release. It's just hard to get excited. As much as I love the film, I own so many different versions, I just can't justify buying another, unless it is something stellar.
I'm definitely in on this blu release if they include the full frame remastered version of the film.
official cover art and some details here so far the only new addition is an all-new commentary with director Bruce Campbell, producer Robert Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell
no mention of within the woods which is no surprise
I'm diggin that cover. Sometimes simplistic is the best way to go.
Alright! All new commentary with director and star Bruce Campbell! I definitely agree with the above, that cover art is very cool.
Nor any mention if it will contain the original full screen version (but I'm sure it will). I like the cover too.
I love the cover also very glad they didn't fuck it up.
Everyone keeps making a big deal about it being in 1.33:1 fullframe. I would assume this is because the original DVD releases were in fullframe. However, Sam Raimi has come out several times and said that the 1.85:1 widescreen version is the correct version. So, of course, everyone has accused him of being a sellout and only saying this to appease Anchor Bay, who wanted to release a 16x9 version for widescreen TVs. But, I've also heard from several other sources that it was shown theatrically in flat 1.85:1. So, wouldn't the 16x9 version be the correct version? Did anyone on here see the film in its original run? Can they confirm, without a doubt, what the aspect ratio was?
I have seen it twice at the cinema and it looked nothing like the cropped dvd release, So full screen is the way to go for the blu ray
Specs on DiabolikDVD:
Glad they provided the open matte version, as this is one of the few instances where I prefer it. But no Ladies features? Maybe next Halloween season.
Saw a 35mm print of it this past weekend. It is indeed in 1.85:1
Not bad, Anchor Bay. Not bad. But why did they drop the previous commentaries? Is there any point really in recording an entirely new commentary?
The few Anchor Bay dvd's I've tried on my Bluray player get me a region code message. Might upgrade to this if it's region free.
