Includes the Theatrical Trailer (Chap.25) and a 30-min "Making of" (Chap.26).

This "blood" red plastic edition was also re-issued on standard transparent plastic due to some Players having problems to read them.

A red sticker on the cover reads:

Note: Although this "blood red" edition laserdisc has been tested and found to be fully functional, there is always the possibility that certain laserdisc players will not perform properly. A "non-red" version will be available for anymore encountering any problems.

The release date is mislabeled as 1976 on the jacket.

A small slip of paper came with my copy:

Note: Due to a technical error, the opening shot of Chapter 26 (Evil Dead II - BEHIND THE SCREAMS) does not contain the digital audio soundtrack. To hear the segment in its entirety, simply select "analogue" audio on your laserdisc player's remote.

The best and funniest commentary I have ever heard. Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, Greg Nicotero and Scott Spiegel ripping the film and each others work to pieces. Almost as good as the film itself!

Evil Dead II was shot in Academy Ratio (1.37:1). This LD is Matted to approx 1.85:1 from the original 1.37:1 camera negative. Other 'Full frame' versions are open matte versions transferred for 4:3 TV's. Compared with the 'full frame' 4:3 1987 UK PAL VHS Palace Premier release (PVC2090A), and the 2000 U.S. Region 1 Anchor Bay DVD (DV11188) which has both 1.37:1 and 1.85:1 versions.

The "regular" Mitsubishi repressing [EE3845] corrects the missing snippet of digital audio at the start of Chapter 26.
