Evil Dead 1:
1999 Elite Special Edition
The lunchbox edition has nothing to do with Elite, I belive the DVD in it was one of the Anchor Bay jewel case versions
Evil Dead 2:
1998 Anchor Bay barebones
2000 Anchor Bay Special Edition (same as tin, just without the tin, is this the one you list as anchor bay 2000?)
Army of Darkness
1998 Universal barebones, don't know if the 2003 one you're referring to is the same, but there was definitely a Universal barebones available since 98

list of R1 Evil Dead Trilogy

Im just sharing the definitive information of Evil Dead Trilogy in R1 format.

It may sound stupid but somehow this marketing approach done by Anchorbay/Elite/Universal for Evil Dead trilogy DVD

1. Pave way to DVD multiple version releases.
2. Evil Dead R1 as I see it pioneered the world of "Double Dipping".
3. Book of Dead lead the dvd packaging innovation



Evil Dead 1

Year 1999 Elite Released Collector's Edition-OOP

Year 1999 Anchorbay Released Collector's Edition (This can be found in five covers and packaged at a DVD jewel case)-OOP

Year 2001 Anchorbay Released Limited Lunchbox Edition (on-pack 1999 Anchorbay Released Collector's Edition)-Rare/OOP
*please take note that the said lunchbox is "DIFFERENT" from the limited# 5000 Lunchbox made by NECA


Year 2002 Anchorbay -with THX (Regular edition)

Year 2002 Anchorbay (Alternate Cover/Rental Edition) Rare/OOP

Year 2002 Anchorbay (Book of the Dead) Limited Edition-OOP

Year 2005 Anchorbay (Book of the Dead) - Re-release packed with Book of the Dead2




Evil Dead 2

Year 1998 Anchorbay (Skull Head Art)-Rare/OOP

Year 2000 Anchorbay Special Edition-(same cover art with the Limited Edition Tin)

Year 2000 Anchorbay Limited Edition Tin (limited to #50,000)-Rare/OOP

Year 2005 Anchorbay (Book of the Dead2) Limited Edition




Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness

There were 4 limited numbered R1 Army of Darkness released

Year 1998 Universal Army of Darkness

Year 1999 Anchorbay 2 Discs Limited Edition Rare/OOP
R1-US release (2 disc Alpha Case) limited to #30,000
R1-Canadian Release (2 disc Alpha Case) limited to #4000<- Probably the Rarest Version to find

Year 2000 Anchorbay Director's Cut Limited Edition Rare/OOP
R1-US release (Gold keepcase / Director's Cut) limited to #40,000
R1-Canadian Release (Gold keepcase / Director's Cut)limited to #5000


Year 1999-2000 Anchorbay Bruce Campbell vs The Army of Darkness Bootleg Edition-OOP

Year 2002 Anchorbay The Army of Darkness-OOP

Year 2003 Anchorbay Bruce Campbell vs The Army of Darkness Boomstick Edition-OOP

Year 2003 Anchorbay Bruce Campbell vs The Army of Darkness Boomstick Edition(with Join The Army 8 Page Limited Edition Collectible Booklet) -Rare/OOP

Can anyone confirm if the Anchorbay 1999 Evil Dead (in Jewel Case) was released in 4 different DVD art and not f the original 5 art?

Why Im sharing this, I noticed that in the spine of each and everyone, once you complete the four it spells E-V-I-L

Highly appreciate any help concerning this matter.

We'll add it to the list.

Doing it for months now, and as I explore further I see some new findings concerning this multiple releases that Anchorbay,Elite and Universal did with the Evil Dead Trilogy .

Another information I was able to get was that of this "Extremely Rare" Evil Dead 1 DVD that carries the same content of the Book of the Dead but with a different packaging.

It was so "Rare", its NOT even sold at the market (online and B&M). Anchorbay distributed this back in 2002 at selected Corporate "non-franchise" Blockbuster outlets in US (For Rental Purpose Only/Not For Sale).

I guess this one goes as the hardest to obtain together with the Lunchbox Anchorbay Edition and the Limited Edition Army of Darkness #out of 4000

There's no chance you have a copy of the alternate cover art for that one, do you? I'm just curious to see what it looks like...

I'm in the process of obtaining one. Im finalizing talks with a Customer Rep from Blockbuster Online if they still have a stock of it or providing me a list of stores/outlets within the range of my residence which carries one.

LOL!... Well finally someone had stepped up to bite all the marketing scheme that Elite/Anchorbay/Universal did for the the Evil Dead Trilogy.


And to say, there is an ucoming "rumor" of a Cabin Release Set? I doubt if Anchorbay wouldnt be continuing doing that after seeing this post I did.. hehehe.


Thanks Dude

Nahh, Every Evil Dead Collector for me is the same as mine, because we have the same likes of film.

Well Wishes on your *twitching* quest with the EVIL DEAD (rental only) Edition.

After presenting to them a a spcial code I got from customer service rep from Blockbuster regional office/Blockbuster Online, the store manager confirm and called the regional office first then afterwards they immediately charge me $19.99 + tax.

Well I wouldnt be hesitating spending that amount, afterall its a sure great catch and it was sold to me even though its not for sale .

I sticked to R1 Evil Dead stuff for now.

Not yet venturing into the multi-region thing... because it would be another long journey especially for the Evil Deads that are way too OOP (Evil Dead Japan for example) and hard to get.
