I was wondering what are the best editions of The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness.

Army of darkness confuses me though, There is a fanedit called screwhead and universal made a dvd/bd called screwhead

counting official releases only, the best ones are as follows

german unremastered bluray for the first one, has the original english mono and 1:78 or 1:33 aspect ratios

uhd release for ed2 (no original audio unfortunately)

and the shoutfactory set for army of darkness

the primitive screwhead fan edit is essentially the directors cut of ed2 with some of the lines changed to the us theatrical ones, and every deleted scene crammed in where appropriate, and an altered 5.1 surround mix

I’ve actually done a sort of despecialized hd version of The Evil Dead using the 4k disc as a primary source with the mono track ripped from the laserdisc synced up… still trying to figure out how to get it out to people, but let me know if you’re interested.
