    Best Buy isn't carrying it. Looks like those who want it in the states are going to have to order it.

    That's odd. They've carried just about every other re-release of the Evil Dead over the years.

    I've stopped buying Anchor Bay Blu-rays on street date. Every single one of them has gone on sale for $13 or less over time, usually within a few weeks of release. I'm sure that both this and Hatchet will pop up at Best Buy or Amazon for $9.99 or so. Even if Best Buy doesn't carry it now, I've seen titles appear months after street date, just because they're on sale. And, with Halloween approaching, I'm sure the sales on Anchor Bay discs aren't far off.

    I'd usually be with ya on this one, but it's The Evil Dead. There was no choice other than purchasing it on release date for me.

    I think I've spent enough on this movie over the years (used VHS, original Anchor Bay VHS, Anchor Bay Collector's Edition VHS, Elite DVD, Anchor Bay Book of the Dead DVD, Anchor Bay Ultimate Edition DVD, PSP UMD) that I'm going to wait for the cheapest price.

    Oh my, I've only bought it three times. VHS, Elite DVD, and the AB DVD with the Ladies of the Evil Dead featurette. And I was able to sell each off for a decent amount.

    Wow...
    I've had time to watch the disc (in the 1.33:1 aspect ratio) and I am very pleased.
    This release is BETTER than all expectations. And I had HIGH expectations!
    I honestly cannot recall being as elated about any DVD or Blu-Ray release. This could be the big redeemer for Anchor Bay- if they continue to churn out quality product like this, I think we could all quickly forgive them for their recent "short-comings".

    Excellent. Then it makes up for the Evil Dead 2 blu-ray.

    Pretty crappy that Best Buy doesn't have Evil Dead on Blu-Ray. I was going to purchase ED on B-R, even though right now I don't have a Blu-Ray player, just yet. Lately, Best Buy has gone downhill on Horror movies, anyway. I remember when I purchased my first DVD player. It was $500.00, but that was in 1998, when they were only out about 3 or 4 months, and Best Buy had countless DVDs.

    Just another sign of the decline of Brick & Mortar stores. Online is the way to go!:D

    I try to avoid buying at Worst Buy as often as possible. Last thing I bought from them was the new Romero zombie flick. I couldn't resist it was only $16 on blu ray. As far as them not carrying Evil Dead I'm not surprised.

    Best Buy blows. I actually haven't bought a DVD from them in almost a year. I either but it at Wal-Mart or Vintage Stock.

    I agree, and that's just deplorable.
    I mean, yes, the shoddy Univrsal release of Army of Darkness is much bemoaned, but at least it is still a definite improvement over the SD-DVD.
    I can't even say THAT about AB's atrocious ED2 transfer.

    :lol: I only go into Best Buy perhaps once a month now. I was in there this last weekend to pick up the exclusive Deep Blue Sea Blu-ray, and that was the first time I'd been in there in probably 5-6 weeks.

    Their selection is just pitiful these days. The horror section just gets worse every time I go in there.

    I just order stuff online (and cheaper) now, screw 'em.

    I used to (four or five years ago) go to Best Buy almost every single Sunday.
    Now, I probably go three or four times a year.
    I agree- I just can't justify paying the significantly higher in store prices at Best Buy. I will patronize their sales but, beyond that, screw 'em.
