Xage, forgive me for not searching the thread for it, but on the Blockbuster exclusive, what is different about it and what is a good price to pay?

There's nothing different between the Blockbuster DVD and the Book of the Dead DVD; Blockbuster essentially got the BotD DVD in their case with an exclusive cover. If you have the BotD DVD then there's no real reason to get the Blockbuster DVD unless you're a collector like xage.

As for price, I believe I recall people on this thread saying they paid around $10 for it.

I'm sure that Blockbuster wouldn't care if you rented their exclusive release and swapped out a non-exclusive cover before returning it. And that way you end up with a mint copy DVD (assuming that you started with one)!

Personally, I'm not that impressed with the alternate cover, so I've never picked one up, even though I see them every now and then.

Thanks guys. If the disc is the same I'll stand pat. I thought it had exclusive content.

Hello! I've been looking to buy the Evil Dead DVD's for quite a while, and that's when I heard about the Rental Only version of the movie. My local Blockbuster actually had this copy, so I rushed out to get it immediately. However, after opening the case, I'm confused. The disc image is exactly the same, but the face is blue. Did I get stuck with the wrong disc?

I had the same thing happen to me when I bought mine. Turns out this Blockbuster never noticed the hard to find disc was in the other Evil Dead rental they had. All we had to do was switch them out. If I had to guess, this is probably what has happened to you. Hope this helps

Now I'm confused. The contents of the discs are the same, but the colors of Ash's face are different?

If so, which is the Blockbuster exclusive one, the blue one?

Japanese OOP Evil Dead Factory Sealed (R2)



I Just bought this off a guy and was wondering like what year it was made if all the special features from the region 1 release were on there etc, and if it's really rare. I thought someone on here would know like xage. I got it pretty cheap.

What are the odds of an Army of Darkness book of the dead? It would be a shame if it doesn't get the same treatment as the I & II.

I think I read that Anchor Bay no longer has the rights to AoD? Anyone know who's hands it's in now?

Can't seem to find any information about the said release.

The only Japanese release that I know of is the 20th anniversary release. Here are the links

If anyone cares...the Region 3 MGM Army of Darkness DVD seem to go OOP. It's not available in any HK based online retailers and xploitedcinema also list it as OOP.

There were actually "5" variations of 1999 Evil Dead (Super Jewel Case) Anchorbay Released :





Five "5" - Spelled as D-E-V-I-L at its spine#

Another edition added to the world of Evil Dead Region 1 DVDs is the Canadian Edition Evil Dead

I kind of got confused, until I did a little research in my own collection. The RED face is the BOTD edition, and it has the code DV11904 on the face of the disc. The BLUE face is the standard edition and has the code DV11903. In other words, the RED face disc is the one you're looking for IF you wanted the BB rental exclusive.

Incidentally, when I read this thread I went out immediately and got one at my local BB. I know it's been said, but after rental fees (4.29), the additional purchase price is $19.99. But I just did a check and they're only going for like $25 plus shipping at ebay. I dunno if I want it now.

Looks like Xage has one more to add to his list - ED2 Blu-Ray
Is this the first series to release different installments on different HD formats?

Originally they refund the $4.29 amount if you rent to own the DVD but they recently change their policy so you have to pay overall around $25.00

Didn't they re-release Army of Darkness on HD-DVD, but not as a combo?

Maybe they were screwed up, but a year or so ago when I almost bought a used copy, my local Blockbuster said I could fold the purchase into one of their buy 3 used for $30 promos. It was $19.99 (used) at the time. It's worth looking into.
