Stephen Romano Presents Shock Festival (2009)
Stephen Romano, who is also a screen writer, does an interesting set of commentary tracks. There are several easter egg trailers hidden in the creepy little graphics floating around the menus.
The only real downside to this DVD set is the collection of fake trailers. They are all really bad, looking more like bad(redundant I know) alt-porn than anything else. But this is a very small section, easily skipped, in a set jammed full of good stuff. Just don't buy this disc for these "trailers". I highly recommend skipping them completely.
So, that aside, this is a great release, well worth buying if you love exploitation films and their trailers. I have watched these discs multiple times and played the hell out of the mp3 disc. And one of these days I plan to pick up the book that goes along with the set.
