the tin. or if you don't want the tin, just get the new cover version. it has commentary and great features. That one is the way to go.

The ED2 tin is hard to beat.

Ever notice that professional female pool players are incredibly hot, but professional female bowlers look like bulldogs?

Why is that?

The new Anchor Bay version is the way to go. You can read our review of the disc at:

Hope that helps!

If you couldn't decifer it from the previous posts, be aware the DVD in the tin and the special edition (both with the same illustrated cover) have the exact same contents, and are therefore both excellent. The booklet in the tin, however is just a bunch of the same old grainy production photos you've seen before, and almost no text. Just decide if you care about having an oversized tin and that book, and buy accordingly. Just don't make the mistake of getting the old bare-bones with the skull photo cover.

Does anyone know if it's possible to get the Evil Dead Trilogy sent home without having the name appear anywhere on the package? Would a gift rap hide any trace of What Lies Beneath?

By the way, I think Sam Raimi lost a lot of potential viewers with the title of the movie; Evil Dead sounds like some hardcore splatter horror, while The Cranky Dead or The Silly Dead would be more appropriate.

Please also recommend the versions of Evil Dead 1 and Army of Darkness that should be bought, and with an image of the DVD cover if you are in a delirously pleasing state of mind.
