Director Shea is gracious and ever-present for the entire track. Katt provides very interesting stories about making "Carrie 2." She really has a vivid recall of working with in North Carolina, as well as operating as an "outsider" among the cast and crew. See, Kat joined the shooting as a replacement director, 2 weeks into principal photography. You can honestly sympathize with the director's plight in such an endeavor, especially given the long shadow of Brian De Palma's original masterwork. Not only did this director embrace the original, but much of this track recounts her efforts to win over Sissy Spacek's blessing. That "Rage" has so much footage from the original is to Katt's credit. Excellent track, very reminiscent of Mary Lambert's Commentary track for "Pet Sematary," in tone and scope. After watching her present on "Trailers From Hell," I knew this commentary wouldn't disappoint. It sure does not. 8/10
