It's pretty much a
stop-go effort; plenty of standard action, punctuated by excessive speechifying.
If the plot had more depth, and we could relate to the characters, it could have
been good. But I watched it 20 hours ago, and I'm having real difficuty remembering
Director, writer, producer, and editor Keven VanHook
is joined by his technical crew on the commentary, and the discussion is, as you
might guess, largely technical. As is frequently the case, the fact that the movie
is very low-budget makes for a large number of amusing anecdotes, and the commentary
is often more interesting than that for much bigger movies.
There is more
commentary available for the single deleted scene and the four special effects
scenes (which are broken down and anatomized).
There is also a storyboard
gallery, and the trailers included are for Frost, The Pool, Legion of the Dead,
Hell's Gate and Dracula: The Dark Prince.
The menu's main page, intro and
transitions are animated and scored, but the other pages are silent and still.
