Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn (死霊のはらわた2) (1987) - Renaissance Pictures Japanese LaserDisc

.
LaserDisc doesn't get enough love on BoGD, but the truth is, I've never really felt a ravenous desire towards collecting them. I'll certainly look through a stack if presented with the chance; however, I'm not usually inclined to go out of my way in search of them online. The strange thing being that I tend to find CEDs more often digging around local junk than DVD's large-plattered precursor. Maybe it's a geographical thing? Anyway, this LD of Evil Dead 2 hailing from Japan was purchased from a long bygone trader friend at a swap meet. I can't remember the price, but it was way back when Elite first released their Collector's Edition LaserDisc. The guy was bummed with the cottage cult bootleg industry dying off to the rising tide of domestic studios releasing once rare films on LD and DVD starting the late '90s. Later on, Bruce's autograph was sneakingly obtained after a If Chins Could Kill-only signing session at the first Horrorfind Weekend.

click for huge as usual, unsure why Dario decided to show up on the back...

Sweet! I'm pretty sure that's the same company that released Dario Argento: Master of Horror (World of Horror 2).

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
