Darkness”. The release will utilize Universal’s excellent transfer and add
some exciting – and never-before-seen – special features and footage. Most interestingly,
Anchor Bay are also trying to get “Into The Woods” on this Sspecial Edition DVD. “Into
The Woods” was a short film by Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi, which eventually lead to
