It is no coincedence that this film starts in an amusement park. It is a non-stop thrill ride from beginning to end.
The DVD is packed with great extras: 6 minidocumentaries, 3 deleted scenes (the second one, "Zombies" explains a continuity error - the missing jacket), commentary by the director, theatrical trailers for both versions of the film, scenes from the film "Creature", and a documentary on the two versions of the film.
Pop the disc in a DVD-ROM drive and you have access to two essays. The first is "Oh, The Horror!
