It figures. Almost immediately after I posted “More Free Horror Movie Commentaries,” I kept finding more and more free downloadable commentaries. So much so that I’ve decided to do another article on the matter.
Although I linked to two commentaries from Icons of Fright in my first article on the subject, I still thought I should link to their numerous unofficial other “pirate” commentaries featuring people involved in the making of the films.
For a mix of great humor and great insights on less than great movies, look no further than the Film Pigs. Similarly, the Jerks in the Back Row hilariously eviscerate bad movies. Being a Head Injury Theater fan, I want to note that the creator of that site participated in the commentaries for The Dark Crystal and Mortuary.
In addition to their commentaries on various episodes of Doctor Who, the MMM Commentaries team has tackled films like The Omen and Jaws.
Those looking for a massive number of commentaries to pick from should look no further than Zarban’s House of Commentaries and DVDCommentaries.co.uk (which also has bonus extras and interviews). However, given how that last site is based in the UK, there’s a good chance the commentaries might not synch up with Region 1 DVDs due to censorship and the differences between the NTSC and PAL frame rates.
Fans of Harry Potter will definitely enjoy Wizard People, Dear Reader, which also might have some synchronization issues depending on where you live. Rather than a true commentary, it’s an alternate soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone written and performed by China, IL creator Brad Neely. Personally, I think it also works as a standalone audiobook.
