The World's Greatest Horrorama!
"Audio Commentary with Stephen Jones and Kim Newman: Having gleaned so much information from the previous commentary, I went in to the second one, which features the horror dream team of writer and editor Stephen Jones and novelist and critic Kim Newman, fully expecting it to cover much of the same ground. Wrong! Astonishingly, there's precious little overlap here, and where the two commentaries do find themselves in similar territory (discussion on actors, characters, scenes and themes), the perspectives almost always differ enough for the comments here to feel fresh. Both men are huge fans of the film and I found myself sharing their views on it even more closely than with those of Hearne and Rigby. What also surprised me is that they make a few observations about the film that Hearne and Rigby missed, but given that there are no pauses in either commentary, neither party would likely have had time to cover every possible aspect. Combined, however, they must come pretty damned close. Superb."
"I really enjoyed the second audio commentary with horror and fantasy authors Stephen Jones and a very enthusiastic Kim Newman as they talk a lot of about other Hammer efforts and the lack of sexualized women in Revenge of Frankenstein."
"The second commentary features Stephen Jones (editor) and novelist and critic Kim Newman—this is slightly more critically slanted but still full of info."
