Weaver has written liner notes, production histories and cast bios for hundreds of laser discs, DVDs and Blu-rays; provided scores of audio commentaries (mostly for horror and sci-fi movies, including Creature from the Black Lagoon and its sequels); and guested on movie-related documentary series on “American Movie Classics” and E!.
