The second entry in this four part documentary series isn't nearly as interesting as the first one. This time out we get interviews with Michael Burnett, Deanna Lund, Melissa Moore, Gary Graver, Steve Neill and others as they discuss the ups and downs of working in low-budget genre movies. The documentary starts off fairly well as the people discuss some of the bad things that can happen when you decide to make these type of films. We hear about the lack of any real money, the lack of time and of course we hear about what all can go wrong in terms of having the lack of funds. The problem is that the documentary constantly have the people telling stories about certain films yet we're never told what films they're talking about so this grew very annoying very quickly. A simple subtext of what they were discussing would have been nice because you hear about some interesting films and then you don't know what they're talking about. Forrest J. Ackerman shows up half way through and discusses the countless major directors who grew up reading his magazine Famous Monsters. He also discusses his film career, which included roles in THE HOWLING and Dracula VS. FRANKENSTEIN.
