day, I'm not sure how audiences would take to a kid-led film this grim; screenwriter Michael Nankin lets us know his original script was even darker. Its creatures form the basis for a pair of featurettes in the extras, and director Tibor Takacs shows up for a commentary. The box also notes new cast interviews, but I couldn't find them. No matter; I'll take this over the similarly themed "The Monster Squad" any day.
