Tom Holland Commentaries!
The fine folks over at Icons of Fright have done a wonderful thing for horror film fans. Although the producers of the otherwise fantastic new DVD of CHILD'S PLAY included plenty of extras they didn't even bother to contact directer Tom Holland for interviews or to record a commentary track. Apparently there is some bad blood between Holland and the film's producers so the fans get the short end yet again.
But, proving that every bad choice is an opportunity, Icons of Fright decided to take the advantage presented and run with it. That's right! This ridiculous oversight has been now been remedied! Downloadable from this LINK is a free director's commentary for the film. And to make things even better Mr. Holland has also recorded not one but TWO tracks for his even better 80s horror movie FRIGHT NIGHT! One he does with actors Chris Sarandon (Jerry Dandrige) & Jonathan Stark (Billy Cole) and the second with William Ragsdale (Charley Brewster), Stephen Geoffreys ("Evil" Ed Thompson) & FX Artist Randall William Cook. How damned cool is this! And they are free! FREE!
Every now and then someone does something to restore my faith in humanity.
