I loved Serial Mom. It caught me right when I was learning to appreciate dark comedy. You've got the visceral thrill of killing all the minor annoyances in one's life, and the social commentary on murderers in the news. This DVD has some interesting extras to look back at the film.

On DVD: Serial Mom

The main 30 minute new documentary is like an EPK with all the talking heads. It starts with John Waters' serial killer obsession and spends about five minutes with all his friends speculating on him, or even just recalling how they met. Then it goes into the making of memories. They got everyone but Kathleen Turner herself, and man, Rikki Lake looks fantastic!

Another spot on The Kings of Gore features a discussion of Herschel Gordon Lewis and David Friedman. It gives light to the history of gore and its influence on Waters, and it is a tad more than tangential because these are the movies Beverly's son watches in the film. They did interview Lewis and Friedman.

There is the original Savoy EPK. Remember Savoy? I wish I had time to listen to Waters' commentary because I always love them, but at least I know it's included for the next sick day or cross country flight.
