Great track. MacQueen says so much about this movie that I can’t begin the write what he talks about. A ton of info. Highly recommended.

I admit that it has been a while since I last listened to the commentary on this so my memory is a little fuzzy on it. So this review will be written to the best of my recollection.

Scott MacQueen does an okay job with the commentary for this movie. The main sorce of annoyance for me is that he, from what I remember of the commentary, talks for a while then will be silent for a couple minutes or so and then start talking again. This goes on throughout the entire movie and for a movie that is only around 75 minutes long it can get a little annoying. The information he does give I remembered liking, however. So it is definitely worth a listen or two but do expect some silence here and there in the commentary. I would rate it at about a 7 or so.

The most info filled track on any of the classic Uni monsters. It even goes to the depths of answering several long held fan theories about the edits and censor cuts that have caused much speculation.
Highly recommended.

MacQueen is very well informed. He talks fast. You hear a lot about the director, the actors, the sets, the special effects, the censorship, the deleted scenes, the music and the black humor. The differences to part one are also a topic.

Other films form Whale or Universal are also mentioned. Sometimes it’s not so easy to understand MacQueen. A very good track. 9 out of 10.
