A very light-hearted, self-deprecating track from director Andrew Fleming. With tongue firmly in cheek, Fleming tells some tales about making his first feature. Fresh out of film school, he headed out to Hollywood, and found himself helming the first solo venture from producer Gale Ann Hurd. The director seems a little uneasy with the horror genre, but found some solace in receiving great advice from Hurds' husband at the time, one Jim Cameron. There are great nuggets of behind-the-scenes "dirt," such as the volatile relationship between Dean Cameron and Jennifer Rubin, how the star villain Richard Lynch reacted to the hours of "burn makeup" application, and which background players were "drunk" most of the shoot. Fleming, who would find later projects to lean more comedic, regales the listener with his opinions of "test screenings," and relates some very cool trivia about the soundtrack to "Bad Dreams." So fans of Axl Rose, and Andrew Wyeth, can gleam some fun tidbits from this track. 8/10
