    First off I'd like to thank Total DVD for the Carnival of Souls movie - I love it.

    Also, when looking at the previews of upcoming discs I was surprised to see that there is a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre disc on the way, with a new version of the documentary 'The Shocking Truth' and a new commentry.

    This is great, as this is possibly my favourite movie of all time (well, in the top 5 anyway). I will definately buy this, even though I already have the documentry on VHS.

    This is similar to the brilliant R4 version of the film, which has two discs, and an anamorphic 1.85:1 print.

    BUT! Why are Anchor Bay re-releasing Evil Dead - Book Of The Dead so soon? I'm not exactly pleased, as i have just recently purchased the 'new' Evil Dead disc, adn now they're relaesing a better versin with (gasp) WITHIN THE WOODS - I badly want this, but with a load of new titles out next year (namely Die Hard I and II SEs, adn the French Connection I and II) this will have to be on the bottom of my 'to get' list.

    Anyway, great DVD with mag. (salutes) :cool:

    Manhunter,

    You said: "BUT! Why are Anchor Bay re-releasing Evil Dead - Book Of The Dead so soon? I'm not exactly pleased, as i have just recently purchased the 'new' Evil Dead disc, adn now they're relaesing a better versin with (gasp) WITHIN THE WOODS!"

    Well, some of us in the forum already knew about this new DVD release, and hence have held-off purchasing the R2 uncut version for that specific reason.

    Anyway, in AB's defence, they did have the Evil Dead Book Of The Dead set advertised on their site for a good month or two before the R2 disc even came to be advertised, so it's not really something they can be blamed for. Plus, the fact that it isn't technically meant to be available to non-R1 users, is it!

    Bad Luck, matey, but this is one of the many reasons why it is not always a good idea to buy a new DVD as soon as you hear about it!

    Pooch

    Can't argue with that - you're right - I just wasn't excpecting it out soon, becasue we usually don't get it for a good length of time anyway.:blush: :cool:
