ROBERT VINCENT O'NEILL GIVES US AN COMMENTARY FOR BLOOD MANIA
Recently, Bob was kind enough to come in to give us an audio commentary for BLOOD MANIA. The moderator did not show up, so Code Red president Bill sat with Robert to do the commentary, which didn't turn out as planned. Bob admitted that of all the films he made, this is one that he was not pleased with, so the sluggish film turned into a sluggish commentary. The film takes place in one location (one house) so very little can be said about the location, so the commentary turned into a retrospective of Bob's career. The majority of web critics hate when a commentary shifts away from the film on hand, but when nothing is happenning in the film, shifting the conversation to another subject is the only thing to do. Also, the DVD we viewed skipped and ended early at the 70 minute mark. Bob is willing to do a 2nd commentary with cast and crew, so BLOOD MANIA might be blessed with 2 commentaries.
