H6 - Diary of A Serial Killer

DVD Rating: **

These extras are about as appetising as our killer's cannibalistic menu.

The Press Conference featurette is the pre-shoot Q&A from various hacks to the cast and director. Some of the material is fairly interesting, particulary Garrido's discussions about making the film so young and it being his first feature.

The main problem with this feature is the exruciatingly bad camerawork. It's filmed on a little hand-held that jerks constantly and is often out of focus. It spins around more than a fairground waltzer and makes you feel just as queasy.

The interviews with Asaco and Garrido are short and uninformative but the real turkey is the one-minute chat with Saurus, who plays minor character Christobel. He is Frau's first victim and is poisoned, while our killer calmly looks on, enjoying his handiwork. And that's pretty much all the actor tells us. Er, thanks for that incite.

The teaser and trailer are pretty standard but the options menu gets the thumbs up, purely for having that glorious soundtrack playing. Divine.
