  1. Ugh. Uncle Creepy’s (podcast) voice annoys me.

    Are the commentary tracks separate or conjoined?

  2. There is an awesome site run by Joe Dante full of cult trailers, ones you can watch with commentaries from various filmmaker fans or watch them as normal. Nice selection! http://www.trailersfromhell.com

    Think I may have to purchase this one.

  3. Seperate – the trailerthons (exploitation, horror, tv) can be viewed with or without the commentaries. Commentaries are by author and artist Stephen Romano as well as Uncle Creepy.
