    Oh same documentary from code red DVD...ahhh. I only have the DVD that was released before Code Red released it on DVD. Either way it will be a nice extra that I haven't viewed yet.

    The full length documentary is terrific, very comprehensive and insightful. That being said, it's very low budget and it shows.

    I believe it was made by Gary Sales, the producer. However, a good chunk of the featurette (the entire last half hour, if I recall) is devoted to fans showing off their posters and artwork. The fanboy stuff bogs it down quite a bit, but the stuff with the actual cast and crew is great fun.

    The highlight for me is when Gary Sales and Paul Ehlers head back to the filming location (which is no longer standing, sadly). Even though there's not much left to see there, they do find a little surprise that was left from back when they shot Madman...

    The pre-order price on Madman is down to $14.99 on Amazon at the moment.

    Anyone from the NY area have plans to go to this in June?

    I've been to a few over the years and they're actually fun.

    I'd love to attend this - is it in Manhattan? Not sure if I'll be able to sit through 4 movies, though :)
