German Army of Darkness: Director's Cut Blu-ray 4/26/13



Koch is releasing the Director's Cut in Germany on Blu-ray April 26th. There's a very good transfer of it in MGM's vaults so we may very well have a second chance at this transfer here. Or it could just be an upconvert of Anchor Bay's less then stellar transfer. We'll have to wait and see.

There's also an "Ultimate Edition" coming out on the same day which is a 6-disc set (2 BD, 4 DVD). It will feature 3 cuts of the film in HD and SD (Director's Cut, US Theatrical, and European Theatrical) plus the TV version as a bonus.

Now why the fuck can't we get that here!!!??? I love how movies that are made in THIS COUNTRY get so much better treatment outside of it.

Wow, 6 discs??? That sounds amazing, although it looks like the pre-order price direct from Europe is quite steep. $75+ shipped from D&T. I love the movie, but I'll wait for some reviews first at that price.

Amazon.de has it for $65 (without shipping). I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm going to pass. I still have the ancient Limited Edition Anchor Bay Director's Cut as well as the Universal Blu-ray. Ten years ago I would have bought this without any hesitation. All in all, it's very cool that this film is getting such a great release.

That's still too expensive for me to justify the cost for pre-order of a single film. And there are a lot of German Blu-rays out there with truly poor transfers. Since it's Koch, it's probably okay, but there's no way I'd risk the money without seeing some reviews first.

Good point. The only German blu-ray I own is the Limited Edition Night of the Living Dead digibook which uses the inferior Network transfer but hell, the book is nice.

I've got the French edition which has 3 versions on one disc. Although the disc is cramped the Dir Cut looks amazing. The German Sp Ed looks nice but would have preferred they dropped the DVD's from the package and lowered the price.

Koch Media always price their special editions like this.

From a review I just read, the director´s cut presented on the Koch Media edition is the worst of the three... at least that´s what the online translator translated.

That's odd as Koch and Filmmedia who put out the french release shared the transfers, The Director's cut looks wonderful and the other 2 cuts look very inferior.

I´m holding for some reviews comparing the French and this release so I can decide if the extra money is worth spending.
