A rather cool hidden feature on this must have horror DVD.
Insert the first disc of the set and from the Main Menu, go to the 'Special Features' submenu. There, highlight the menu entry that reads 'Man Menu' at the bottom of the screen and then press the 'Up' arrow key on your remote control. This will highlight the Smiley face. If you press 'Enter' now you will get to see a brief featurette entitled 'Dick Miller: Thespian,' in which the actor, who played the bookstore keeper in the film, talks about his break into the movie industry and how he came to work with Roger Corman and Joe Dante on a number of films.
