Trailer Park Of Terror
Reviewed by: James BenefieldRead James Benefield's film review of Trailer Park Of Terror
The extras on the DVD are comprised of a 55-minute ‘behind the scenes’ featurette and a theatrical trailer. The packaging does mention deleted scenes, although these are incorporated into the ‘behind the scenes’ featurette, rather than standing as a feature on their own.
The featurette is fairly standard stuff. The cast are typically gushing toward the producers, the writer and the director, and, on occasion, delivering saccharine platitudes regarding each other’s skills too. The most interesting aspect of it is the very last section, which features interviews with the actors in character as the town’s undead. Although it’s occasionally rather painfully clear they’re improvising with very little practice, it’s good fun and there are some inspired nuggets nestled in there, if you’re willing to stick with it.
Somewhat annoyingly, the featurette seems to cobbled together from shorter sections. It’s almost as if half or dozen or so featurettes were made, and then all sticky-taped together at the last minute. There is no breakdown of this on the menu, just the option to watch it all through. This means after each mini-featurette has finished, we get a set of mini credits.
On a side note, and somewhat strangely, the trailer suffers the same problem the film has; it does take too long to get going.Reviewed on: 13 Feb 2009
