I am not very optimistic about this. I had the Make Your Own Damn Movie set and the book notwithstanding, was a big disappointment. it was manly a making of terror firmer doc, that was peppered with mostly small interviews that were neither helpful nor informative.

Kevin Eastman and Eli Roth's contributions were the only actual interviews that taught me anything beyond "dumpster dive and use melons for head crushes".
