    Is this the region 2 one which was released this week ?

    Can I ask you what soundtrack it's got ? There's no mention of the soundtrack on the packaging.

    I've done a search for army of darnkness and found some threads which talk about bootleg versions ubt I'm finding it a bit confusing ? Can someone explain what the different releases are ??

    there was a lot of posts about this R1 dvd when it was released, I'd be interested to know what the new R2 Anchor Bay release looks and sounds like. Anyone.

    I am adeowen and i originally posted the comment over a year ago now,someone replied to it today?????since then i sold the bootleg version and i got the new r2 2 disc ed today,the directors cut still has some of the bad picture quality,the added scenes are easy to spot because they are of vhs quality.The sound on the dvd is 2.0 i think,there is no 5.1 mix on there,the extras are good though and it is better than shelling out 50 + pounds for the r1 on e bay!!!!concerning the ending, i like the ending where he goes back to work at the k mart,much funnier and not as sad for ash.cheers

    It's a 2 disc set.
    Disc 1 has the US theatrical version with DTS
    Disc 2 has the directors cut with the original 2.0 surround
