I wanted to really enjoy this track, being a fan of slapdash Horror and comedy, but it leaves the listener wanting. I really appreciated the (once Kid) actor's enthusiasm. You can tell that the film was a special moment in his life, the details of which are given in the first 30 minutes or so. After that, pretty standard "describing the scenes" on the screen. He does elaborate on the bits his character participates in. As for Director Weiderhorn, he provides the requisite amount of info on special effects, location shooting, test screening, and the like. But, I've listened to another genre picture he directed, "Shock Waves." As in this commentary, there's always a sense he's slightly embarrassed by the work. I suppose he's moved on to more fulfilling projects. This isn't the most illuminating, or even entertaining, commentary. But, if you're a fan of the genre, and '80s zombie fare, it's worth one spin. 6/10
