Note: This is for the limited edition tin box for the DVD. The tin box edition includes an introductory booklet for you to read that will be covered fully in the DVD, and a picture of the tin box illustration.
Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn -- Limited Edition -- Theatrical release was in 1987, and the DVD was released in July 2000. Evil Dead 2 is directed by Sam Raimi.
Running time and region code: This DVD is not rated by the MPAA. The running time is 84 minutes. I didn't see the region code because of the DVD software and the packaging not showing it.
Special features: The DVD has a gallery of movie stills, biographies of the chuckleheads and fake Shemps who made the movie, a documentary featurette The Gore the Merrier, and a trailer of the Dreamcast and PC video game Evil Dead: Hail to the King. However, my favorite part is the commentary track with Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, co-writer Scott Spiegel and special make-up effects artist Greg Nicotero.
Technical features: This DVD has both the pan and scan and widescreen view of the movie. Closed caption is available for the dialogue, and the sound formats supported are Dolby Surround and THX equipment if available.
Is this DVD worth the money? It's nice to show off a tin box (I have tin box # 49,179), but I don't mind if everybody buys the DVD-case version of the movie.
