BOOK OF THE DEAD - A RECONSTRUCTION OF THE PREMIERE THAT TOOK PLACE AT THE REDFORD THEATRE, DETROIT 15th OCTOBER 1981
This is what we are planning to do. The plan is to recreate the original premiere. The film that was shown was titled Book of the Dead and what we aim to acheive is a slight re-editing and preservation of certain elements that are not availble on DVD. The information of this release can be found in The Evil Dead Companion book
Thes are the specs of the SL DVD we hope to acheive
: Original Fullscreen ratio of 1:33.1 (with the missing sfx shot of lightning hitting the tree restored.)
: Original 1.0 Mono soundtrack (restored from the Japanese Laserdisc, no 5.1 remixes or tweaks here!)
: Original Premiere title (new title BOTD will be recreated for this release)
: Special Features Include -
- On screen text commentary by Bruce Campbell (text will be taken from The Evil Dead Companion)
- Within The Woods short movie (Hopefully!!)
These specs are TBC at the moment. The Re-editing and DVD authoring will be done ReverendBeastly. I mearly suggested the idea and supplied the materials.
any ideas for this release please feel free to share them! any cover art would be nice as well!
