    I am a bit disappointed we aren't getting the Cabin packaging, but I will get it for sure. Can't wait.

    If it were HD or something i could understand... MAYBE... at least then it would be on a new format.. but what? are they saying their other releases were sub-optimal that they need to re-release it as an Ultimate?

    Think I'll pass on this one. Calling it Ultimate while still missing Within The Woods is horseshit on AB's part IMO.
    Someday they'll clear rights and include it, someday.

    Raimi should get off his high horse and just allow Within the Woods to be released. His decision not to include it before really ticked me off thus the bootleg I uploaded years ago. ;)
    I think it's kind of funny they're releasing a widescreen and a full frame disc in the set. They should just release the Ladies of ED disc solo for $10.

    Hmmm, now I'm debating cancelling my order for the Evil Dead 1 and 2 Book Of The Dead set. No doubt I want the BOTD edition of part 2, but with this Ultimate Edition coming out of the first one, I'm not sure I need the BOTD version of part 1. But the packaging's so cool... eh, I guess I'll keep the order. I've never seen Evil Dead before (any of them), but if I like it, I'll get this Ultimate Edition too. I like that it has both the widescreen and full screen versions.

    That's interesting that they're keeping a Full Screen version, I wonder if they'll take out some of the other tweaks as well? The disc only includes the stereo track, why not include the others? This is a pie in the sky speculation now, but I wonder if they also left the shot of the lightening bolt in and therefore didn't want to pay for another round of audio encoding? Could this disc be an untouched version?

    It seems like Anchor Bay's trying to appease fans after all the heat they've been getting lately, but they usually end up botching that as well. I certainly wouldn't pre-order it, but after reading some reviews I may just go for it. I'm figuring there will be an HD release down the road, so that's what I'll be buying.
     
  10. Stupid move by Anchor Bay. How are they ever going to get us to buy the next rerelease of Evil Dead if this is supposed to be the Ultimate Edition?

    On another forum. It looks like one of those sell-thru books that Best Buy gets to place their orders from.
