|This is the original VHS release of the film, from Englewood Entertainment.|
An added bonus is the posthumously completed Crossroads of Laredo, Ed's first movie.
PROS: Contains extra movie. Original release.
CONS: Usually quite expensive for a VHS tape.
|This is the DVD release of the film.|
It also contains Crossroads of Laredo.
Both the main film and Crossroads have full commentaries. The photo galleries feature pictures that are too small and that advance automatically far too quickly. Other extras (outtakes, TV coverage, tapes from various get-togethers) are a novelty only.
Many of the deficiencies of the original film are cleared up by the commentary. Holes in the narrative are filled and time is taken to explain what certain footage or photos are, when that information should have been covered in the documentary itself. In many ways, Haunted World works better with the commentary than it does with the original soundtrack.
An additional issue is that the DVD I received had several errors at the chapter stops, causing the film to either freeze momentarily or skip. It is unclear if this is a general problem or not.
PROS: Contains extra movie. Cheaper than VHS. Commentary more enlightening than film itself.
CONS: Possible bad encoding?
