Nice 24-minute featurette from Shout Factory! takes a look at the making of DEADLY EYES, the 1982 Canadian movie. Interviewed here are art director Ninkey Dalton, writer Charles H. Eglee and special effects artist Tom Woodruff, Jr.. The majority of the screen time is giving to the writer who talks about how this project came to be and the various problems that came up during production. Woodruff tells a lot of great stories about being brought onto the picture and talking about the differences between this and a couple Roger Corman films he worked on. He also shares a story about the making of ALIEN 3, which at the time reminded him of this picture. Fans of DEADLY EYES are going to enjoy hearing these stories and as the title suggests, a lot of talk goes towards the dogs that were dressed up as the killer rats. There are certainly some nice stories being told including one where Scatman Crothers needed pot delivered to him daily.
