Lori talks about her character, most women in horror movies were portrayed as damsels in distress where as hers was a strong woman type. They mentioned that the opening was shot in Florida and how all the zombie extras wanted to go to Disney World. Imagine working there and seeing zombies heading towards you.

They talk about filming in the mines, working with the other actors and Lori groans at the gore.

Overall, a nice track.

This is one of those commentaries that somehow makes you appreciate a film even more. I always assumed Avery was Andrew Ridgeley to Quentin Tarantino's George Michael or Curt Smith to his Roland Orzabel. This guy is a hardcore fan and his enthusiasm comes across in spades in this commentary. He acknowledges the flaws of the film while absolutely fawning over it. It will make you want to watch the film again.

Crap! All he does is praise this movie. Every scene, every performance and every thing is good to him. He even tells us a dream he had of one of the characters who had just been killed returned back to life. Oh, stop before my heart breaks!

Avoid it and stick with the other track.
