First thing I did when I got up was check for the newest Monster Madness installment! Dope video! Proud to be a loyal (and slightly pathetic) member of your fan base!

I like to wait until night when I get off of work and turn off lights to set the mood. Also gives me something to look forward to while at work 🙂

I hope you do the alien series next!

Ηi there! I am a loyal cinemassacre fan from Athens, Greece (maybe the only Greek ;)) I am proud of posting second cause it is 11.30 morning here in Athens.
Greetings to James and Mike, keep up the exvellent job!
October 9, 2013 at 1:01 pm
You are not the only Greek.. I know at least 50 of them
October 9, 2013 at 2:53 pm
I agree, Alien series would be perfect. Mix if great movies and hilariously bad sequels.
October 9, 2013 at 2:55 pm
Aw god, there’s no edit. It will drive me insane if I don’t fix it. I meant OF. Mix OF great movies and hilariously bad sequels.

2:37 – They remind me of the rebel munchkins
October 9, 2013 at 9:20 am
Mike are you coming to Chiller Theatre?
October 9, 2013 at 5:51 am
what the hell are rebel munchkins?

While technically well-made, I’ve never exactly loved this installment. It follows the same basic theme of Frankenstein fucking with the natural order of things, but in this case, nobody innocent suffers as a result. Franeksntein basically resurrects Hans-stina…whose death he had nothing to do with…long enough to take his/her revenge, and that’s it. It’s like a gender-confused Pumpkinhead.
Plus, not nearly enough Cushing. Though I did love the scene in the bar where he charges the guy Hans sliced up to fix his face.
October 9, 2013 at 6:02 am
this movie looks awesome!!! Peter Cushing rules
October 9, 2013 at 6:37 am
One of your best yet in my opinion, keep it up!
October 9, 2013 at 6:46 am
That was one bloody hilarious review. Had to watch it again.
October 9, 2013 at 6:51 am
Heyyyy, there is a really cheesy greek zombie movie called “to kako”(the evil). It enjoyed great sucess in all balkan countries cinemas. take a look at the teaser http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%CF%84%CE%BF+%CE%BA%CE%B1%CE%BA%CF%8C+2005
Seems like a pretty convoluted entry in the series, in my opinion. 🙁
October 9, 2013 at 7:10 am
You know what else does Martin Scorsese love? The Exorcist II. I’m starting to see a pattern here.
October 9, 2013 at 7:46 am
Wow, this one had some deep, intriguing stuff to it! Thanks James.
October 9, 2013 at 7:55 am
I don’t like the title of this tough. It sounds stupid.
October 9, 2013 at 8:20 am
Actually, unmotivated agression and tendency to crime, can be in the genotype of a person. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetics_of_aggression
October 9, 2013 at 8:23 am
I think the thing is that when transferring the soul, he forgot to check that the other body was properly empty. That means that the body Christina had 2 souls. 2 souls and the brain of Christina’s upbringing. Oh boy.
October 9, 2013 at 8:25 am
Mom wouldnt let me rent this one because she thought it was a porno o__O
October 9, 2013 at 8:50 am
I remember seeing this on TV and not knowing what the title was.. so i thought it was some strange straight to vhs film from the 80’s… it certainly wasn’t like any other Frankenstein film.. for better and worse
October 9, 2013 at 9:35 am
those three assholes from the bar scene I thought always reminded me of the Clockwork Orange gang to. I also thought this was one of the stranger entries in the Hammer Frankenstein series, great review as always.
October 9, 2013 at 9:40 am
I love this series. Your passion for classic horror films has got me interested James. Keep up the good work.
October 9, 2013 at 10:29 am
October 9, 2013 at 11:03 am
what a weird fucking movie, i love me some monster madness.
thanks James, keep up the good work !!
October 9, 2013 at 11:45 am
damn she was hot! I bet Peter got to bang that sweet ass! 😉
October 9, 2013 at 12:47 pm
I love Monster Madness! New episode every day. It doesn’t get any better than that.
October 9, 2013 at 1:34 pm
actually it does make perfect sense to me. notice that it never said that Dr. Frankenstein did anything with Christina’s soul, just with Hans’s soul. so that means that Christina’s soul AND Hans’s soul were BOTH in Christina’s body. and having two souls in one body can easily be considered an abomination of science and nature, so it works perfectly for a monster movie.
October 9, 2013 at 2:42 pm
“As if crime is in your genes…f***ing idiots.”
This was my favorite quote. I love it when James calls out the sheer stupidity of movie characters sometimes.
October 9, 2013 at 2:57 pm
THANK YOU! I could never understand how a lot of people claim this is the best of the whole Hammer Frankenstein series. I always say it’s the worst! I even had to bite my tongue when reading some of the comments on the previous videos.
I don’t get the whole spirituality thing going on. I like the Frankenstein mythos because the Sci-fi elements are there to suspend my disbelief. But when a horror film goes into spirituality I have a much harder time.
I did notice how there’s so much exploitative promotional material (and even the title) and I have mixed feelings about it. Part of me is happy Hammer didn’t turn it into an exploitation film but the other part of me feels it could have made for another wonderfully detailed operation/transplant scene.
I had a hard time finding this film, even though that’s surprising since the distribution rights are with Anchor Bay. I ended up going for broke and buying an expensive laserdisc copy since I heard all the rave reviews for it. I paid way too much. Ugh.
October 9, 2013 at 3:05 pm
Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only Scandinavian fan here. Ah well, great video! 🙂
October 9, 2013 at 3:10 pm
eh, I can never get invested in a movie, tv show, or even a cartoon series if they take the body swap route. it’s a rather tricky kind of story to pull off because they either use too little or use too much that it get’s hard to feel invested in a story like that. I tend to tolerate gender bender’s more since they can get emotionally interesting if done right. sorry James, nice review but not my kind of horror movie to watch. among the Hammer Frankenstein films thus far, I have the least interests in this one based on the body swap story alone. I can never get invested on that kind of story so this movie wont do much for me in that regard.
October 9, 2013 at 3:30 pm
what that movie between Frankenstein vs dracula and plan 9 outer space
October 9, 2013 at 3:52 pm
James, Mike – guys, are u fcken shitting me?! This commercial at the beginning of last videos here is one and a half minutes long! What’s wrong with u? I cant fcken watch any video – there’s this loud unskipable commercial of some crappy shoes or smth, what the f?
October 9, 2013 at 4:23 pm
Excellent video James!
October 9, 2013 at 6:58 pm
Has James ever talked about the 1994 movie? I wonder if it will make the list.
October 9, 2013 at 11:47 pm
He mentiones it briefly in his review of TNT’s 1993 Frankenstein TV movie.
October 9, 2013 at 7:40 pm
LOL looks weird but interesting
Another great review
October 9, 2013 at 7:54 pm
I guess Hammer has a thing for gender changes. They made this and Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde which you have to do for a video one day
October 10, 2013 at 12:40 am
I think the plot to this movie is the best in all Frankenstein movies.
October 10, 2013 at 1:38 am
Great review and a very unusual movie indeed!
October 10, 2013 at 1:40 am
Seems the problem with the Hammer series of Frankenstein is that other than the first two films none of them really follow each other and are completely different films with only the fact Cushing plays the good doctor in each as a connection.
October 10, 2013 at 3:01 am
The plot’s not that weird. Exact same thing happened to my brother-in-law and his wife.
October 10, 2013 at 4:46 am
These are great videos! Thanks!
October 10, 2013 at 8:48 pm
I would guess the logic is that, since it’s still her mind, it’s basically her, but with his soul, there is sort of an extra influence there from his as well. Sort of a ‘two brains in one body’ thing, but in this case, it’s her mind and his soul.
October 11, 2013 at 12:03 am
Good times your Halloween post’s. I’ll respond in kind
October 11, 2013 at 11:42 am
James – you know who else LOVES this movie and thinks its the best of the Hammer Frankensteins? John Waters!
October 13, 2013 at 1:35 pm
Another Friday the 13th reference??? mmmmmmm i know what are you doing there James 🙂
October 14, 2013 at 5:05 pm
A neat movie. It’s different having a female villain, even if we’re not quite sure on THAT! This movie is just weird, but not too bad, I’d say.
October 15, 2013 at 2:45 am
man this is the highlight of my day
