Watch this video on Blip
October 15, 2011 at 2:26 am
You know, I come to my computer and the first thing I see is a new video! Loving it =D thanks James
October 15, 2011 at 2:39 am
Dang, wish I could edit my comment but I’m going to take a guess that if it’s a horror villain from the 80′s with a lot of sequels, I’ll go with..Jason Voorhees! Though the possibilities include other big names, I’ve always been a bigger Jason fan than the rest =)
I’d really love to see all of these Dracula movies (and own them all), especially finding those two rare out of print DVDs you mentioned. Next time I’m out I’ll see if any Mom and Pop stores might have one…or I could always go to Ebay.
October 15, 2011 at 2:47 am
I enjoyed Dracula’s new Bond villain turn. It’s a nice change from his usual shtick,.
October 15, 2011 at 2:49 am
good series, i love it, and i hope the next one is Friday the 13th, but you never know it could also be Nightmare on elm street, but i really want to see you review Friday the 13th series
October 15, 2011 at 2:51 am
for the sequalathon you could do movies based off steven king books although i now that those movies aren’t sequals to each other . just saying
October 15, 2011 at 2:59 am
He said that we were going to “spend a week” on a 80′s horror icon. Based on that, I would guess that it’s going to be Nightmare on Elm Street since there were 7 original NOES movies. Freddy vs Jason doesn’t count. There were 9 original Friday the 13th movies, Jason goes to Hell being the last one.
October 15, 2011 at 3:07 am
Indeed, but at the same time he could skip the original Friday the 13th and start with Friday the 13th Part 2 (because the first movie didn’t really have Jason except in mention and then at the very end at the lake). Though I doubt James would do that, considering the first movie’s popularity and it is considered one of the best of the franchise. Then again even if he skipped Friday the 13th, he’d still be left with 9 movies. Friday the 13th Part 2 through VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, Jason Goes to Hell (which is technically the ninth movie I guess) and then Jason X. That is unless he subtracts Jason X AND Jason Goes To Hell and sticks strictly within the Friday the 13th series as a whole.
Ah I’m thinking too much into this…I own the Friday the 13th collection and it includes Parts 1 through 8 but excludes Jason Goes to Hell and Jason X. Likely because of different studios or something along those lines. I believe the reason there wasn’t really a Halloween collection was due to all the different studios involved in that series.
Of course, Halloween is another possibility. Not all of the movies stay within the 80′s and early 90′s but Michael Myers was quite popular back then too. I guess we’ll see tomorrow night for sure =D
October 15, 2011 at 3:08 am
I have one of those crappy DVD compilations of 50 horror movies. On one disc is The Satanic Rites of Dracula and on another disc is Count Dracula and His Bride. Yes, they put the same movie in twice with the only difference being the title screen.
October 15, 2011 at 3:11 am
Nice… I enjoyed the 2 weeks of Frankenstein and Dracula, but I’ve really been looking forward to the 80′s sequels. It’s obviously the Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th movies, but I’m hoping it’s Freddy Krueger…
Keep ‘Em Comin’ James. Truly good stuff. Thank You…
Im glad this is over, I cant stand the Hammer Draculas, for me they have absolutely no appeal. I hope what you were refering to at the end of the video is A Nightmare on Elm Street, ive waited years to hear you talk about the entire series
October 15, 2011 at 3:13 am
Dammit, he did say “spend a week with”. I wanted Friday the 13th dammit!
October 15, 2011 at 3:16 am
I don’t think it will be The Michael Myers Halloween movies. They actually started in the 70′s, but you never know. They were very popular in the 80′s as well and led the way for both Freddy and Jason.
Let’s hope James doesn’t pull a trick on us and do Chucky.
October 15, 2011 at 3:21 am
EVEN THOUGH, IN MY OPINION THE HAMMER DRACULA SEQUELS GOT WEAKER……..
but I found the plot to this one, as a sequel to the series stronger then some of the others. Also Sir Christopher Lee did tip his hat to Bela Lugosi. By putting on the hungarian accent for his scene as D.D Denim in this film, and he wore a copy of the ring that Bela Lugosi wore in all of the Dracula films made by Hammer. I must say that I’m lucky to own the first 3 films, and Scars Of Dracula on DVD, because most of them are out of print. Like what james said, hopefully they get these all back in print
October 15, 2011 at 3:26 am
I seriously hope that it’s either Freddy or Jason.
October 15, 2011 at 3:55 am
Here’s my guess.
It’ll be A Nightmare on Elm Street. There are 8 Nightmare Films, not counting the immensely shitty remake. Freddy vs Jason counts because it has Freddy. Now, after that it’ll probably Saw. Because that’s the only other massive sequel based horror franchise after the 80′s. There’s 7 films, which means that’s 15 more days of MM. However there’s 16 days left in October, so that’s one day left. I’m assuming either he’ll have one stand-alone video, or after Nightmare he’ll do a mix of franchises. Such as Scream, and then Wrong Turn.
But since he said a week, it’s mos-def Nightmare. Too bad, the Jason films are much more fun and interesting.

Horror villain from the 80′s, could it be Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street or Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th?
October 15, 2011 at 4:58 am
Van helsing was the same dude from the empire in star wars episode 4. and and lee was the same guy in the man with the golden gun I think. these actors I only know very little about.
October 15, 2011 at 5:02 am
I wonder what the final one will be?….
October 15, 2011 at 5:06 am
Well i come to my computer in the morning and the first thing i see
is the same commercial day after day :/ annoying
other than that dailey video is awesome Oct. @ Cinemassacre rocks.
Hope it returns to 10 min videos after the dracula set.
October 15, 2011 at 5:34 am
I love Monster Madness every October!. Also, pause at the part where all the famous villains and monsters pop up in the beginning (after he says ‘CINEMASSACRE’S MONSTER MADNESS!!!’ and the gates open), look at the bottom right corner, E.T is there! LOL! James and Mike, you guys are great!
October 15, 2011 at 5:58 am
It really is a shame that Christopher Lee hated playing Dracula. He really was one of the better ones.
October 15, 2011 at 6:01 am
If my research is correct, Cyrte Investments owns the Hammer film library.
If you need someone to give this collection of horror films in a DVD box set, contact them.
October 15, 2011 at 6:27 am
I think its Freddy or Jason…. i prefer Freddy!
October 15, 2011 at 7:25 am
so I guess it is Jason Voorhees time.
October 15, 2011 at 7:40 am
Whole week…. Nightmare On Elm Street series. It has 7 movies(If not counting the remake and Freddy VS Jason)
Nightmare on elm street-Wes Crawen’sNew Nightmare.
October 15, 2011 at 8:02 am
If Freddy vs Jason doesn’t count, then Wes Craven’s New nighmare shouldn’t count either, the original NOES series is 6 movies.
…and, you said Jason goes to hell counts,, then certainly Freddy vs Jason got to count also, since Freddy makes an appearence in that movie building up to Freddy vs Jason.
October 15, 2011 at 8:14 am
How I’m hoping tomorrow starts something involving a slasher icon!
October 15, 2011 at 8:19 am
I’ve been waiting for Friday the 13th week. Can’t wait til tomorrow. Chi Chi Chi Ha Ha Ha.
October 15, 2011 at 8:34 am
Video doesn’t work for me.
October 15, 2011 at 8:41 am
I hope the next one is Freddy and no Jason nor anyone else.
October 15, 2011 at 9:07 am
Man do i hope you choose michael myer for the next week. I mean halloween 8 is probably the worst movie i ever saw
October 15, 2011 at 9:08 am
I hope it’s Freddy or Jason.. Either way, I am also hoping James reviews Freddy vs. Jason. I’ve been dying to see him review that film for years. It’s one of my favorites. Even if James is not a fan, and/or if he has some things he didn’t like about it, I still welcome the review because (not trying to sound like an ass-kisser) he gives great, and detailed reviews.
October 15, 2011 at 9:42 am
@Zeeboe I think it was when he was a guest on a podcast, I can’t remember much about it since it must have been about a year ago, but he said that he thought it was a great movie too, atleast that’s what I remember him saying since that’s what got me to watch it and I loved it.
October 15, 2011 at 10:05 am
Video isnt working for me either!!
October 15, 2011 at 10:32 am
I assume that its not Halloween seeing that he said 80′s. Either Friday 13th or NMOES. I would like to see all of them seeing that these are the ones I am most familiar with
October 15, 2011 at 10:43 am
What’s the name of the movie that was shown in the intro where the guy pulls off his face.
October 15, 2011 at 10:49 am
Myabe he could do Friday the 13th for a week (Not countitng jason x, freddy vs jason, or jason goes to hell) and do Nightmare on Elm street next week! Then, like on Halloween do Freddy vs Jason
October 15, 2011 at 10:59 am
Hellraiser is also from the eighties, but there were 9 films, so I guess it’s too much material for one week.
October 15, 2011 at 11:06 am
Funny this the one I’ve seen the most times. What was with horror film makers in the 70′s humping Anton LaVey’s leg with the Satanism stuff? Oh, and “Paul” is conspicuous by his absence.
October 15, 2011 at 11:13 am
@boogins – If you wanna see something like this about Halloween, check this out: http://www.youtube.com/user/crazedweasel?feature=mhee
October 15, 2011 at 11:29 am
Let’s see. That brings the total number of things that can instantly defeat Dracula to:
Seeing the shape of a cross
Touching a bible
Fire (which I actually agree with)
Stealing his coffin
Going into a house without being invited
Shaving himself (with no reflection)
Looking at him funny
Sneezing at him
Giving him a daisy
Saying the word “Myer”
Any blood-related disease
A British guy
I know some of these are just me being stupid, but seriously, how did the classic vampires pose a threat again?
October 15, 2011 at 11:32 am
Hey James, I tried to play the Video here and not on Blip.TV, And it fucked up my computer, I had to restart it twice, and do a system check.
October 15, 2011 at 11:42 am
I sure hope it’s Freddy and not Jason. Funnily enough, the way I found out about AVGN and Cinemassacre was when I watched the “His Name is Jason” DVD and saw the Friday the 13th AVGN episode on there. I’ve been addicted ever since.
October 15, 2011 at 12:17 pm
After Dracula, cover the Wolfman movies and then Mummy movies.
Next year, cover Nightmare on Elm Street, Child’s Play, Friday the 13th, and Halloween.
October 15, 2011 at 12:46 pm
The video won’t play for me… that makes me sad
October 15, 2011 at 12:50 pm
Everyone keeps saying his next series will be either Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm Street, but I’m pretty sure he’ll do both. In the original promo vid, he said he’ll pick 4 series spannng from the 1930s to the 1980s. The last 2 series will obviously be both Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, unless James decides to fool everybody and do Chucky or something lame. lol.
October 15, 2011 at 1:16 pm
I’m surprised no one asked this, but does your copy of Scars of Dracula have the bonus documentary The Many Faces of Christopher Lee?
I’m talking about the limited edition which consists of 10,000 copies. If you don’t have it, it contains a bonus disc which includes the documentary plus two bonus music videos where Lee sings with Gary Curtis.
Here’s one of the music videos that is sure to put a smile on your face.
If that doesn’t make you want to track it down, then nothing will!
October 15, 2011 at 1:18 pm
Freddy, Pinhead, or Jason.
They all suck, so it doesn’t matter.
October 15, 2011 at 2:24 pm
Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing are some of my favorite actors of all time. Out of all the movies I’ve seen Christopher Lee in. I would say my favorites are his performance as Count Dooku & Grand Moff Tarkin in the Star Wars movies & of course his role as Dracula.
Peter Cushing is one hell of an actor. His roles as Dr. Frankenstein & Van Helsing in the hammer films are my all time favorites.
October 15, 2011 at 2:27 pm
I really hope you do the Romero zombie movies this year.
October 15, 2011 at 2:32 pm
I hope you do Either Friday the 13 or Nightmare on Elm Street I would prefer you do Friday the 13 better and go all the way to Freedy Vs. Jason. Friday the 13 is way better.
October 15, 2011 at 2:57 pm
If you’re going to do Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm Street, I’d say go with Nightmare. There are only 7 of those films, 8 if you include Freddy vs. Jason (which you probably would).
October 15, 2011 at 3:06 pm
It most likely has to be Nightmare on Elm Street
October 15, 2011 at 3:12 pm
The two best lines of this review were 1) Stating that this was Christopher Lee’s final reprisal of Dracula and 2) That we will be getting a full week dedicated to a horror villain from the 80′s. I’ve been loving Monster Madness this year, as always, but the Frankenstein and Dracula ones got a little old after the third or forth entry (especially the Hammer films where it’s basically every story over and over again). I can’t wait for tomorrow’s entry just to get something new.
And yes, it sounds like it’ll be NOES if it’s one full week dedicated to it. Maybe Halloween, if you leave out Halloween 3 where Michael Myers had nothing to do with it (except a brief, cheesy commercial excerpt for the first movie).
October 15, 2011 at 3:44 pm
it will be freddy
October 15, 2011 at 4:45 pm
Hey james i got these hammer films i found i dont know if they’re good or not:
twins of evil
Can you do a mention for a vid or something to just like spread more of the old hammer classics
(sorry to ask anyway)
I remember seeing this one on Elvira’s Movie Macabre. It was literally one of the most boring creature features I have ever seen. I agree with James, in that it has a lot of good ideas, but the film itself is a plodding mess. Cheesy acting, poor acting(in spots), bad pacing, bad plot, etc, etc. It was so bad in fact, that I didn’t even remember half of the things that were in the movie until James mentioned them.
Literally, this is how the movie goes: a lot of dialogue and exposition, very little action. Then just as the movie starts to get interesting, they have to end it in the worst, most hackeyed fashion. A thorn bush? Seriously? Either Dracula is not very smart, or the writers weren’t that imaginative. I think Elvira summed it up best. : The plot was wooden, the acting was wooden, and the ending was (literally)! Made of wood.
October 15, 2011 at 4:53 pm
This was my first Dracula movie. I actually enjoy watching it.
a post-DOTM Transformers movieverse fanfic
October 15, 2011 at 5:17 pm
1 minute into the video dracula barges into the house…but it was sunny outside
October 15, 2011 at 6:22 pm
Too many shit scenes to outweigh the good ones in this flick.
Cant wait for the next series.
Monster Madness is halfway done !!
October 15, 2011 at 6:26 pm
@PoopsMcgee I don’t think it will be Halloween, James said it will be a Villain from the 80s. The first Halloween was released in the 70s
October 15, 2011 at 6:44 pm
i say nightmare
October 15, 2011 at 6:50 pm
I like how on IMDB, if you take a look at the link below, it has James and Mike credited for playing a version of the legendary Freddy Krueger.
It would be line number 8.
October 15, 2011 at 7:01 pm
It’s funny how the working title was “Dracula is Dead and Well and Living in London.” That was a reference to Belgian singer/songwriter Jacques Brel’s musical review “Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris.”
October 15, 2011 at 7:02 pm
i just love these. I wish they would keep comming forever =P
October 15, 2011 at 7:04 pm
At first I thought you ment Blackthorn as Blackthorn branches was used to be burnt as incense to ward off evil spirits(It is written on cans of Blackthorn Cider). But I now know that It was also a common practice to attach spriggs of Hawthorn(which is related to Blackthorn) to the cradles of newborn babies to protect against illness and evil spirits.
So thats why it was added to be one of Dracula’s weeknesses along with the cross and the bible etc….
October 15, 2011 at 7:06 pm
I really do enjoy these videos, I’m just not liking the Dracula Hammer Films. I’ve been trying to watch a few of the good ones that you mentioned but I don’t dig it much. I guess that’s just me. Looking forward to the next series!
October 15, 2011 at 7:18 pm
FRIDAY THE 13TH PLEASE HAVE IT BE FRIDAY THE 13TH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
October 15, 2011 at 9:34 pm
I just finished watching the entire Nightmare on Elm Street series, up to Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, and I’d love to see what you think as well.
I never got to see the Hammer Dracula series, so I may have to see what netflix has available. These look like they’ll stand the test of time, accept maybe Dracula A.D. 1972. lol
October 15, 2011 at 10:04 pm
October 15, 2011 at 10:59 pm
I hoping its the Halloween series, The Friday the 13th Series or the Nightmare on Elm St series lol its most likely gonna be one of these, but that’s just my guess.
October 16, 2011 at 12:17 am
Come on Freddy!!!!!!
I just seen “A serbian film” , check it out, kinda gross. not too bad.
October 16, 2011 at 12:25 am
Anyone know the name of the movie clip at the beginning of the intro with a guy tearing his face off. Pretty Gruesome!!!
October 16, 2011 at 1:23 am
Wow, you can see why this guy was later picked to play the evil Lord Tyrannus and also Saruman! That prayer during the Satanic ritual was evil and awesome as… hell! Plus… “Now my Revenge is complete.” So THAT’S where Lucas got it from! :p
A certain villain from the 80s… Could be Jason of Friday the Thirteenth, Michael Myers of Halloween, or Freddy from Nightmare on Elm Street. I’m hoping for Freddy, since he talks and has the most personality of all three, and I’ve actually seen all of that series!
October 16, 2011 at 2:36 am
Best thumbnail ever.
October 16, 2011 at 4:08 am
wow what film is that in the beginning where the guy rips his fucking face off??
October 16, 2011 at 4:14 am
I second your comment @dysenteryandy
October 16, 2011 at 4:54 am
Movie clips in the intro:
2) The Fly 2 (Face Melt guy, google “Fly 2 Face melting”)
3) Mad Love (1935)
October 16, 2011 at 8:13 am
i HATE when they stereotype satanists i’m a satanist but all that ritual bull shit is not true! the religion is all about beeing fair and letting humans be humans not setting any inhuman goles like you cannot feel anger or any of that BS we’re not allowed to hurt children we’re not allowed to kill an animal unless it’s in defence or for food
October 16, 2011 at 8:43 am
For some reason I cant watch Satanic Rites of Dracula or the newest video Nightmare on elm street! Anyone know why?
October 16, 2011 at 9:14 am
Same here, I can’t watch the video!
October 16, 2011 at 12:47 pm
whats going on here, I cant watch this one or the Elm St one, Booooo…
October 16, 2011 at 6:03 pm
90 percent of ALL Hammer horror films are people sitting around tables talking!
Plus 2 percent people walking down corridors with candles saying, “Who’s there?”
1 Percent carriages.
1 percent cleavage.
1 percent blood.
These movies always bored me to tears. But your reviews have entertained me no end!
October 16, 2011 at 9:59 pm
THE VIDOE WON’T PLAY AND IV’E TRIED 3 DIFFERENT COMPUTERS AND IV’E TRIED OTHER VIDEOS AND THEY DON’T PLAY DAMMIT!!!!!!!
October 17, 2011 at 10:53 am
The video won’t play!
October 17, 2011 at 8:32 pm
This is cool. Im watching the hammer reviews right thinking i dont have any hammer films and then i come across this 15 chiller dvd set that i never really watched all of and discovered that i have one. I watch it last night never thinking in a million years that james will do the one and only opne i just so happen to discover that i have . And then he does. The very next day afer i watch it. Then i was going to ask him why the one i have is called count dracula and his vampire brides and not the satanic rights of dracula, then he answered that for me before i could ask. i have the american title. Cool. Well, on with freddy horror fans.
October 18, 2011 at 4:24 pm
These “Hammer” Dracula movies all seem pretty lousy. I dunno if Dracula is supposed to be intelligent, but the character to me seems more like a “mastermind” than he appears here. I never thought he was supposed to be some semi-mindless monster, but instead a cunning and dangerously intelligent enemy, not unlike the Joker, where you always have to keep reminding yourself that even though you appear to be defeating him, he probably still has at least one more ace up his sleeve.
October 18, 2011 at 4:27 pm
(cont) … Instead he never even seems to think about being defeated, and is always surprised when confronted with one of his endless kryptonites, even after having been “killed” a half-dozen times already.
October 19, 2011 at 1:32 am
What’s better than watching The Satanic Rites of Dracula? Watching The Satanic Rites of Dracula hosted by Elvira Mistress of the Dark. Enjoy!
October 19, 2011 at 5:23 am
When they showed this in TV here in Finland a while back, it of course had a finnish title. Translated back to english, it would have been “Dracula is alive and well”. Sense, this makes none. Though I’m not a fan of horror, I got interested in this, a seventies Dracula-film with this kindasorta “happy” title. The original title on the screen, with subs stating “Dracula is alive and well”, sure drew a giggle out of me.
October 19, 2011 at 5:57 pm
For fans of British television, Joanna Lumley (“Patsy” on Ab Fab, “Purdey” on The New Avengers, and so much more) appears in this film. Very nice woman, by the way, besides being in her 60s and still being hot . She posed for photos with me when I saw her in NY years back.
October 19, 2011 at 8:11 pm
Now his review is complete
October 20, 2011 at 6:20 am
I have been thinking just the same as you when seeing these movies. I am not a satanist but I know that it is not as it is being portrayed in these movies!
A lot of people just have stereotypical thoughts about satanism being a devil worshiping religion which it is not! Where in fact it is closer to being atheism.
October 22, 2011 at 4:46 pm
I have a collection that has both “Satanic Rites of Dracula” on Disc 2, and “Count Dracula and his Vampire Brides” on Disc 5!!! Lol. Never knew it was the same movie. I remember watching “Dracula 1972″ also, but whether this was from the same collection or not I’m not sure! I should pop them in and see,…maybe something is mis-titled,…or I just got F’d in the A!!!
October 24, 2011 at 3:33 pm
I found the Prince of Darkness/Satanic Rites dvd at Borders Books a year or two ago. Too bad they went under.
October 24, 2011 at 5:22 pm
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU James! This run through of the Dracula films was awesome. You do a great job of giving us everything we want to know about the series. I had a poop ton of fun watching these reviews.
November 22, 2011 at 2:08 am
This movie has some great concepts. It really should be remade by Hammer, since they’ve been trying to get back up lately.
And then Dracula vs. Freddy would be plotwise and legally very easy.
January 2, 2012 at 10:52 am
OH MY GOD DRACULA CREATED THE T-VIRUS. O_O
February 4, 2012 at 1:30 pm
Say that reminds me, I know this is off topic from the video, but why haven’t you guys done a review on The Omen, I know it’s not a horror movie as such, more of a supernatural film. I think you should do a supernatural horror series, with The Omen, Poltergeist and The Exorcist!
May 18, 2012 at 2:30 pm
This video won’t play on Blip, good thing you hosted it somewhere else too.
May 21, 2012 at 10:23 pm
“Now my revenge is complete.”
Nice job pulling out that line they both have in common, heh.
October 5, 2012 at 9:41 pm
I own a DVD of this movie by Alpha Videos & I watched it & see why the
espionage & spy stuff is in it. This movie takes place 2 years after
Dracula 1972 A.D. & u learn that later in the movie. Also Peter
Cushing’s character Van Helsing even explains in the course of those 2
years the chruch where he killed Dracula was torn down & a tower was
built over the site & when Van Helsing goes to meet the guy who owns
the building, it’s confirmed that Dracula owns the building & not
mention his satan group of brain \washed fools & vampires. Dracula
didn’t have a servant or 2 like he did in Taste The Blood of Dracula or
Dracula Prince of Darkness. Dracula had a cult of vampires & brain
washed servants this time.
October 12, 2012 at 10:52 am
I’ve got this movie on a Vampires & More pack under the title Dracula and his Vampire Bride. I saw another one of your reviews with the opening scene of it under The Satanic Rites of Dracula, and thought “What? That looks like that movie I’ve got…” and wondered why the titles were different. I couldn’t muddle through the movie with all the weird espionage shit, it just didn’t fit the mood of a good Dracula film. The cult scenes looked like an exploitation film. It is a clusterfuck.
October 17, 2012 at 3:58 pm
“Dracula is Dead and Well and Living in London”. Inmediatly thought about the Mel Brooks version, “Dracula: Dead and Loving It”, with Leslie Nielsen (Let ‘er Rip) as Dracula and Mel Brooks as Van Helsing.
