This week i begin to work on this cut finally from the Bluray source
But i do it slow because there are some other projects i wanna do in between
I made already months ago a workprint of this of the tv footage to see how it looks
That workprint was exactly 3 hours, but this "original edit" must be shorter
I go for a 150 minutes cut, i hope to get everything in those 150 minutes
The idea is just like my Possession cut to get the action constantly going
I am not a very big fan to edit tv episodes in one movie but with this one i make an exception
I think to do also some music overdub of the Evil Dead trilogy in this and maybe some of the remake
Idea's enough, but it's gonna be difficult to have that limit of 150 minutes
But.. i wanna do it and i think this is ready in October

Ash Book vs of the Dead? Might need to rework that title image. Something like...

ASH vs.​
The BOOK OF THE DEAD​

I think it was because having "Ash vs The" on one line (with the "vs" larger and coloured to contrast against the background more than the "the") followed by "Book of the dead" on the second line made it parse incorrectly.

You could maybe try formatting it as:
ASH
vs
The Book
Of The Dead

and see if that looks better.

Either way, this reminds me that I should pick up the first season now it's been released. I'm looking forward to see what you do with this.

Are you planning on cutting any storylines, or just upping the pace so that it's more action-packed?

Well, like i always try to do with my edits more action packed
Also a lot of cuts in dialogue and that "Jacksonville trip" was one of the "slow" scenes i didn't like in the original
That is gone or simply trimmed, but I'll see what's happening when i work on it, but my limit is 150 minutes
I'm gonna work also on some other cover with the title in a different way

sadly I can't figure out how to crop to cover size and still have the chainsaw outside the box.

Fine job with the chainsaw too bad it's not usable as a cover

I created a new cover of this edit  (In the first post)

Very busy with this tv show at the moment
The Blu-ray quality is great and a have a lot of fun to put this together in one movie
I am now working on the first 4 episodes

The cuts of Episode 1:

- Ash dressing up to go out is a little trimmed
- Driving to the bar is trimmed, conversation with the hooker is cut, in this edit he is already banging her in the toilet
- At that moment also some trims and in dialogue
- Driving back to the trailer is cut, smoking pot with some other hooker is trimmed
- Police arriving at the house is trimmed, also when the Male cop is possessed i trimmed some dialogue ( this scene is now more to the action)
- Back to Ash some conversation with his neighbor Vivian is cut, (part of it)
- At work the dialogue with mister Roper is cut (he is introduced later) also the acquaintance between Kelly and Ash is cut because in this edit they already know each other
- Explaining to Pablo the happenings with the book of the dead is with the flashbacks a little trimmed
- Back at the trailer i cut some dialogue at the last scene of episode one

Well, that's it for episode one

At the moment i have 5 episodes done
An alternative opening, it begins with Evil Dead 2 (1987)

There are a few segments of Evil Dead 2 to introduce Ash with The Book of the Dead
Then we go 30 years later to start with Episode 1

The Cuts of episode 2 - 5:

- As always there is dialogue cut to move up with the story
- Ash preparing to leave is trimmed
- Conversation with Pablo in the car is cut
- Mister Roper's his head smashing on the windshield is trimmed, you hear the sound effect but in the original the used some kind of cartoon effect like his head is splattered but it's fake bullshit so that's cut
- Another conversation with Pablo is cut
- At the dinner the dialogue with the Mother of Kelly is trimmed
- In front of the store of Lionel the dialogue is cut
- Lionel explaining some history of the Book is cut
- Dialogue between the cop and Kelly is trimmed
- On the way to the Onkel of Pablo the trip is trimmed
- Jacksonville is trimmed
- The possession of Kelly is trimmed to put the action scenes more together

That's it for the moment

The cuts of episode 6 and 7:

When Ash is sitting in the western moose he mentioned to go back to the cabin
From that point i cut a lot of dialogue of Kelly and Pablo and also of a guy called Lem
Lem is in this cut only a customer in the western moose nothing more
In the original he is a member of some private army group (episode 7) well, that is all cut
Of course i keep the action in the western moose but after that from that point we are back in the cabin
So the last 55 minutes contains the last 3 episodes of this TV show
I keep only the scene of the resurrection of Ruby (episode 7) which is important in this edit
So if all works well i succeed in the running time of 150 minutes

update is coming up

In my earlier post i said there was a lot of cuts in episode 7
I cut out the ''LEM" character and the private army group

This edit is coming to an end but it's bothering me that i cut so many out of E.7
There is a lot of action in this episode but there is no way you can put this all in 150 minutes

So i decided to make also an extended version for the lovers of this
So the up and around the 150 minutes cut is the "released" one and the extended version is only available thru me

How long the extended cut runs well, i don't know i see it when it's done

updates coming up

This edit is cleaned up to a running time of 153 minutes

Most important cuts of Episode 6 - 10

In 6 i cut out the "Lem" character  (now only a visitor)
In 7 i cut out the private army group, only the resurrection of Ruby is used
in 8 , 9 , and 10 is the dialogue trimmed, back to the trailer of Ash is cut  (Ash and Ruby sequence in 10)

There is NOT gonna be an extended edition, after seeing this cut on the big screen i think it is good as it is now

That's it, i put it tomorrow on Mega

I saw this edit Wednesday on the big screen completely and i found some mistake at the end of this cut
Because of the tremendous cutting in dialogue there are some lines not correct at the end of this edit

Some people saw already the AAC (sound) version of this but the original release is AC 3
So lucky enough i corrected that mistake yesterday so for me it is now perfect

Too bad for the people who saw this already but mistakes could happen
It was a very busy job to do this but for me is this the first and the last one to make a movie of a TV show

By the end of the week i put it on the IFDb
