    Just remembered that Anchor Bay are releasing a 4 DVD box set of the Evil
    Dead trilogy at the end of the month - thing is, I thought they only had the
    rights to Evil Dead 1 and 3 in the UK - number 2 in the series is currently
    out by Momentum. So what's the story with this box set?

    Anchor Bay haven't released number 2 separately yet have they?

    And don't MGM hold the rights to The Terminator, whilst Momentum hold the
    rights to T2 in the UK? They're releasing them as a boxset though- so I'd
    assume everything should be alright on the Evil Dead front :)
