Naughton and Dunne pick up the banter right where they left off over 25 years ago. Most of the ground covered in the 2-disc Special edition ("Beware the Moon") is rehashed. However, These two chaps come across as amiable and respectful of the movies' place in Horror lore. David Naughton's chagrin is so heartfelt when he relates his failed attempts to woo the beautiful Jenny Agutter. And Griffin Dunne really channels his character on screen with well-placed and witty comments. Not only was this commentary very entertaining, I also learned when to spot Director Landis' cameo, and which other films I could find Jenny Agutter displaying her outer, as well as inner, beauty (Equus and Walkabout). I give this commentary an 8/10. Must Listen.

They spend most of the time watching the film and even apologize for it. Griffen talks about what a nightmare it was being in the make up, David talks about how he had a crush on Jenny Aguter before filming this movie, doing nude scenes (Griffen says to him "You're naked a lot in this film.") and how doing love scenes is no fun.

But really they have nothing really interesting to say. Is it watchable? Well, worth watching once and probably never again.

Snore-fest. Surprisingly disappointing. It could have been so much better. It's as if these guys were in a theater watching a movie eating their popcorn and bejng very careful not to be rude and talk over any dialogue. Cmon guys this is commentary. Talk. On second thought don't bother. It seems like you have nothing interesting to say. This is to be missed at all cost.
