Lawrence Wollsey presents... MANT!

Universal just re-released the 1993 Joe Dante film, Matinee on DVD. My review of the disc can be found at the DVD Late Show site.

Unfortunately, the geniuses at Universal chose not to include any extra features on the new disc, not even the "complete" Mant! - the monster movie-within-the-movie that so perfectly sends up sci-fi thrillers of the 1950s. Mant! starred Cathy Moriarty, and - uncredited - three stalwarts of the genre, William Schallert, Kevin McCarthy and Robert Cornthwaite This was included on the old laserdisc, though, and someone has thoughtfully uploaded it to YouTube. Enjoy.

Wow that's excellent.

It's done everything right and hit every mark that the lost skeleton of cadavra didn't manage to get.

I'll definatly have to get a copy of Matinee but it's a crying shame that Mant isn't a full extra.

In fact it's a shame Mant isn't feature-length.
