$12 isn't bad for a good movie, but I also remember hearing somewhere that the Screwhead Edition isn't so great. I'm waiting for a future release myself.

Excuse my ignorance, what's Screwhead Edition? It's been awhile, I'm ready to watch this in Blu Ray.

Good deal if I wanted to give Wal-Mart my money, but I don't.

Besides, doesn't Wally censor their media or did they lose that battle finally?

@riverzendz: They censor their music, or did anyway, but not their movies. They have never censored their movies.

@wootfertexas: "Screwhead Edition" is this Blu-ray release of Army of Darkness. I have it and think the transfer is fine. What negatives did you hear @sykotek ?

The screwhead edition is missing some extras that were in previous DVD editions.

I have the Boomstick Edition on DVD. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt-blue steel, and a hair trigger.

On it, I like the story Bruce Campbell tells about cutting his face on a protruding piece of costume armour during filming, and the difficulty the doctor treating him had distinguishing between his all fake make-up injuries (can we all count Ash's head trauma?) and the real wound.

Several years ago, at Project A-kon in Dallas, he said, "the movies that are the easiest to make are the hardest to watch." Thankfully, Army of Darkness is not one such film - but he candidly admitted he'd been in plenty of others that were.

classic flick. but they'll probably release 30 different blu ray editions like they did on dvd.

I still have the numbered limited edition 2-disc DVD. I'm sure there are better transfers, but it's more about the dialog than the scenery and I don't think the Blu Ray treatment will add much.

@funkadelic78: I just read that it was a lackluster release. Apparently the transfer isn't up to snuff in comparison to the HD-DVD transfer. From what I read, it seems that they increased the contrast and didn't bother to rewatch the movie before printing and shipping the discs. Also, the extras are also severely lacking from the Screwhead edition. Its been said that if you had previous DVD releases, it wouldn't be worth buying the Screwhead edition, so I skipped this release since, if history is any indication, its simply a matter of time before they release another version of Evil Dead/AoD.

Also, I've heard,
Evil Dead: LE Blu-Ray is definitive followed by BotD
Evil Dead II: THX certified DVD tin > Blu-Ray release
Army of Darkness: Boomstick edition is definitive folled by Anchor Bay/Universal

That's just what I heard, opinions are welcome,
I personally only have ED&EDII: BotD and AoD: DC
