    intense! you can really tell a lot of work went into this, it looks great! Especially the lighting.

      Oh, hands down! This is by far THE most hilarious video by James yet. I was LMAO the first time I saw!

  • May 11, 2010 at 7:19 am

    Wow James, this is just awesome!

  • Almighty Kabal

    May 11, 2010 at 7:23 am

    Ok also, I genuinely jumped twice during this video lol… the window and the shadow behind to couch x_X

  • May 11, 2010 at 7:23 am

    “i turned you off!”.. “you turned me ON!” lols, hillarious. Very different board james, but totaly awesome!

  • May 11, 2010 at 7:25 am

    LOL, when James is sleeping on the couch, you can see lotion and tissues on the shelf to his right.

    May 11, 2010 at 7:30 am

    Loved how you “played” all the classic cliche’s from horrors. Although the Bucked didn’t attack after being killed only once, which suprised me πŸ˜‰

  • Vergeh

    May 11, 2010 at 7:32 am

    Dare I ask what movie you were watching when you fell asleep on the couch?

  • tseilou

    May 11, 2010 at 7:44 am

    Damn that was great. It was actually somewhat scary. And the the horror came from tension, not from shock effects. Reminded me a lot of Alien. Music, voices and lightning were all there. Yet at the same time it was fucking hilarious and I for one laughed more than I have ever laughed to Scary Movie or any shitty horror-comedy film.
    Good job!

  • Warrax

    May 11, 2010 at 7:45 am

    Very good episode!

  • thethirdman

    May 11, 2010 at 7:51 am

    This was very professional, and i liked it a lot -as usual. It was Nosferatu right? the movie you were watching?

  • hazieN

    May 11, 2010 at 7:53 am

    Hahahaha, this was scary and funny at the same time.

  • TheOzcarSound

    May 11, 2010 at 7:57 am

    hey that was Nosferatu!!
    what a great movie and this video was fantastic!! keep going James πŸ˜€

  • Mattematask

    May 11, 2010 at 7:59 am

    That was awesome! like a mix of Board James and just regular James who likes making horror movies πŸ™‚

  • Sicboypeachy

    May 11, 2010 at 8:01 am

    holy crap! That was absolutely fucking amazing! Like really, wow. I was not expecting the audio, direction and cinematography to be so awesome on a board james vid… great awesome great brilliant great… wow. well done sir!

  • pkunkweare

    May 11, 2010 at 8:01 am

    And the ‘Most Likely to Receive Some Sort Of Attempted Legal Action’ award goes to..

  • ClemensTheMenace

    May 11, 2010 at 8:02 am

    That was amazing! Much better than the previous nerd episodes and for me one of your best alltime. I liked a lot in this short film (I would call it that). Especially the using of lights – which creates a real creepy atmosphere. The scene with that oldschool telephone was also very great. ( Twisting the cable in your hand!!). At all it was one very cool reminiscence to old horror movies especially Childs Play or the Leprechaun movies -and you even had a jump scare in it !

  • Apocalypse612

    New episode on my birthday. All is well.

    You guys are getting really good at what you do. Keep it goin buddy.

  • herniol

    May 11, 2010 at 8:16 am

    another classic…

  • May 11, 2010 at 8:20 am

    Just great!

    Actually, it was like a “Tales from the Crypt” episode. A bit creepy and funny as well.

  • May 11, 2010 at 8:25 am

    The thunder sound effects sound exactly like in Zelda: Ocarina of Time when a storm is building up. Cool! Makes me feel like a naked dolphin again πŸ™‚

  • Mr. Arkadin

    May 11, 2010 at 8:34 am

    That made me laugh out my ass.

  • karaokefreak

    May 11, 2010 at 8:36 am

    Awesome work, James! Lovely to see how you use classical horror / thriller elements. Like lighting from below and sideways (the evilish / twillight effect), narrowed light from a different room through a door (light portal effect going from good to bad) and focus lighting (Mr. Bucket in the basement).

    And the storyline is nice as well (…so typical :D). Introduction with funmakling around a “seroius” threat, a main actor researching facts on it and finally meeting the threat, but someone else is its victim… classical!

    Very entertaining!!

  • Mr. Arkadin

    May 11, 2010 at 8:36 am

    Woah, Mr. Bucket has your balls in his mouth?

  • Johnnymoniz

    May 11, 2010 at 8:39 am

    I really loved the german expressionist feel, the camera vignetting, and the homage to Murnau’s Nosferatu. This has been one of my favorites.

  • Mr. Arkadin

    May 11, 2010 at 8:40 am

    Mike, you are one ignorant piece of shit.

  • You Can Just Walk Over It

    May 11, 2010 at 8:42 am

    Excellent episode. Lots of Cinemaphobia and 2006/2007 AVGN vibes from this one. The water splashing scene with the mirror looked VERY familiar for instance.

    I wonder how many people will complain this was too long right after complaining Hero Quest was too short.

  • Supie64

    May 11, 2010 at 8:43 am

    Hi James,

    this is a Classic that u just created!!!!!
    This Borad James is so unique and a one of its kind.
    Sombody allready said it: this is a real Short-Film. This is more then just a “normal” Board James. This is AWSOME!
    James and Mike what a combination,i laughed so hard,wow. πŸ˜‰
    U guys now what ur doing. The Camera Work,amazing. The Lighting,brilliant.The Sound/Music,plain perfect.
    This was a real omage to the classics old Horror Epics that James likes so.
    I can only say: Keep it up James(and all that helps u),ur work is great.

    Kindest Regards

    P.S. This Board James realllllyyy deserves a Making Off πŸ™‚ i wanna see how u did it and what kinda problems u may had.Im so sure this was a heck of work.

  • KingShiloh

    May 11, 2010 at 8:43 am

    Great video, James!!

    and happy birthday πŸ™‚

  • StandingCow

    May 11, 2010 at 8:47 am

    LoL, holy shit James! I was wondering how the hell you were going to have to say about Mr Bucket once the episode was like 1/4th over… but this was unexpected and awesome.

    I never had the game (thank God, don’t want it sucking my balls), but I remember the commercial.

  • gemini_dragon

    May 11, 2010 at 8:47 am

    i just finished watching this video i commented a while back saying the only complaint i have is his videos are not long enough Well JAMES this video was def long enough and Entertaining as fuck Thank You im satisfied completely do more like this i duno what way but u know what way thanks Bro i loved this video BRAVO 6pack of rollingrock rateing
    Cant wait to see your next videos Dont stop making vids james and we will keep watching

  • Nightmare19

    May 11, 2010 at 8:48 am

    Oh man this video was both funny and VERY creepy at times. It actually reminded me of Childs Play a bit. That movie scared the crap out of me as a kid. Good work James N Mike.

    I bet you guys laughed your asses off while making this video. I vote for Outtakes to be posted !

  • gemini_dragon

    May 11, 2010 at 8:48 am

    the best part of this video was when james calls mike and u see the kitchen light go on or whatever and their just living next to eachother its cool id hang with those dudes

  • Mr. Arkadin

    May 11, 2010 at 8:54 am

    That was unusually well done, but also disturbing, hateful and completely wrong.

  • rashktah

    May 11, 2010 at 9:03 am

    Brilliant, brilliant video. Really well done and even somewhat scary. ^.^

  • malekdarshin

    May 11, 2010 at 9:04 am

    I had a friend that lost a ball in a freak Mr. Bucket accident as a kid. I always thought it was a fluke… now I know better.

  • May 11, 2010 at 9:05 am


    That was really fun to watch…and I must say that this was one of the creepiest episodes I have seen. the part where the bucket appeared in front of the window really scared me.

    Oh and I guess the part where MF Mike tried to pull the buket away from his balls must have been so hilarious to play…

    See but that’s the thing. You can do so much with so little things. It’s all about the creativity here and I like it very much.

    Nice video

  • malekdarshin

    May 11, 2010 at 9:10 am

    At the least they could have made it Miss Bucket and gave it softer lips.

  • PRabjohn

    May 11, 2010 at 9:15 am

    Another great video!
    Your movie making skills has become amazing, you create great ambience of a horror film, while at the same time making it so comedic that its hard for me to stop laughing. This is true for most your videos. Simply love em, thanks for another great vid!

  • Jackred

    May 11, 2010 at 9:16 am

    Hi everyone this is Jack Red, I just saw this episode and I got to say you guys really come up with some fucked up ideas.

    The games I knew before the episodes were Mouse Trap, Crossfire and Mr. Bucket.

    I am not sure if I had Crossfire as a kid but I do remember that commercial along with Mouse Trap.

    Now Mr. Bucket I used to get toys by that company and I wondered why I never got that.

    Well now I know how the fuck could they sell that to kids I mean seriously it’s like they take Elmer from Looney Tunes to entertain kids it isn’t right.

  • Sirius

    May 11, 2010 at 9:24 am

    Haha, very funny video. πŸ™‚ Thanks.

    And as much as I usually dislike Mr. Matei, when that bucket came on to him I thought it was hilarious. It felt like he was actually trying for the first time.

    Good job guys. ^_^

  • Sinz86IROCblk

    May 11, 2010 at 9:24 am

    This has to be the funniest Board James yet, even though it totally wasn’t a board game. Reminded me of Child’s Play how could an innocent children’s toy do the unspeakable?!

  • lordtufty

    May 11, 2010 at 9:25 am

    I love how you film it. the lighting gives it a cool effect of semirealism!

  • Eccid

    May 11, 2010 at 9:26 am

    hahaha, awesome! all you videos need to to Mike getting a vicious ball sucking πŸ˜› By the way, the first time mr. bucket peeked down from the rafters was fuckin’ creepy πŸ˜›

  • Lovecraft

    May 11, 2010 at 9:26 am

    Awesome video man, funny stuff.

  • May 11, 2010 at 9:37 am

    When it went down on Mike, it was totally insane. he was like a real to-be-ball-less man πŸ˜€

    The part after the second phone call was really, I mean REALLY creepy, it was a fucking perfect horror movie job.
    And all the details – stopmotion, Mike’s window visible outside was very professional.

    I caught the glimpse that the mechanical pert was taken out in the drowning scene – you guys spared that ppor thing ^^

    Really liked it. Most complex Board James episode this far.

  • May 11, 2010 at 9:41 am

    this is the greatest thing ive seen all week. great job man, only you could take something as simple as mr. bucket and turn it into something demonic. amazing.

  • Filmmassacre

    May 11, 2010 at 9:42 am

    Best Board James epsiode ever!
    5 stars *****

    May 11, 2010 at 9:43 am

    Kinda funny i guess..

  • May 11, 2010 at 9:43 am

    You made a horror flick out of mr bucket! thats something else, you are truly a gifted director

  • JustCody

    May 11, 2010 at 9:44 am

    That was so unexpected and awesome. I was laughing like crazy and creeped out at the same time, very strange

  • 1randomdude

    May 11, 2010 at 9:45 am

    Holy shit, my Mr.Bucket is going out.

  • jtmcbath

    May 11, 2010 at 9:48 am

    You actually succeeded in making Mr. Bucket terrifying, still funny though.

  • May 11, 2010 at 9:49 am

    That was just awesome. I was actually a little scared until I realized you were being stalked by children’s trying to suck on your balls. You actually shocked me by betraying my typical horror suspicions too.

    Great work.

  • superflydemon

    May 11, 2010 at 9:50 am

    probably the best video you have ever made

  • M3n747

    May 11, 2010 at 9:52 am

    Wow, damn great video! I like the classic horror lighting the best, great work, James!

  • Noctilca

    May 11, 2010 at 9:57 am

    Great video, James! Very well done and very spooky! The camera work and lighting were *perfect*. You’ve really captured the look and feel of classic horror movies.

    And I *knew* there was something really creepy about that thing…Makes me glad I’m female XD

  • bushgunns

    May 11, 2010 at 10:02 am

    i wish i could get my Mr. Bucket to suck my balls

  • Lord Moe

    May 11, 2010 at 10:10 am

    Whoa, I love it! It’s like a short horror film! Best Board James by a mile!

  • insanek9

    May 11, 2010 at 10:10 am

    james you are a genius! your film making talents truly shine here.
    never thought id be afraid of a bucket.

  • ibuycheap

    May 11, 2010 at 10:11 am

    That was awesome. The lighting was great but what was really shocking was the audio. One moment I liked in particular was the panning effect on Mr. buckets voice, it made it seem like he was behind you.

  • pacman025

    May 11, 2010 at 10:13 am

    Hated it. no no, just kidding, it was very amusing. The tension building was exceptionally well pulled off, and the camera work was beautiful. I especially liked how you saw Mike in the background on the phone when James was calling him, it was intriguing to see the different styles of cinematography meld together. Almost a Rosemary’s Baby meets Rear Window. I would be interested in knowing how long it took from pre-production to final release. The editing was impressive.

    Good work James and Mike, taking a seemingly harmless children’s toy and making it appear terrifying. It would have been funny to see what Mr. Bucket would have done with the balls after having them in his mouth?

    Good work James, Thanks for all the laughs over the years.

  • Ozis Apoes

    May 11, 2010 at 10:15 am

    Good job James! These five minutes were way better than any new horror flick IΒ΄ve seen in past 3 years!

    james, that was bad ass! great video. loved the suspense.

    No balls were hurt in making of this video…..

  • Blackidna

    May 11, 2010 at 10:48 am

    Never be bored again with Board James. I kind of miss the Nerd, but so far all the filler was good and this Board James (I was gonna use the initials but too many oral sex innuendoes are just too many) was an unexpected yet pleasurable surprise.

    Also I’m jealous of your place: that basement looks so awesomely spacy!

  • warwagon

    May 11, 2010 at 10:49 am

    The other guy in the video reminds me of Michael Cera

  • piggypig890

    May 11, 2010 at 10:50 am

    “I’ts okay! I don’t wanna hurt ya, I just wanna suck your balls!”

    James, this was incredible. The cinematography was excellent and the lighting gave a true ‘horror’ atmosphere. Not to mention the obvious, it was hilarious.

  • Gcube524

    May 11, 2010 at 10:50 am

    The best Board James by far. Nice Work!

  • Rattrap007

    May 11, 2010 at 10:55 am

    “I turned you off!!” – James as he runs off
    “Noo you turned me on..” – Mr. Bucket


  • May 11, 2010 at 11:06 am

    Oh my god, ha ha ha!

    Just brilliant! How in the world do you DROWN a bucket?

    I dont think anyone would play anymore board games after that except for those two.

  • May 11, 2010 at 11:12 am

    Wow, that was great! There was a lot of creativity in this one and I love how atmospheric it got…despite being about something so silly. I have to say, I never expected this sort of thing out of Board James.

    Keep it up!

  • May 11, 2010 at 11:14 am

    this shud ave bin like a halloween special or somthing but i realy enjoyed it good work, also loved the way u used the lighting

  • May 11, 2010 at 11:48 am

    May 11, 2010 at 11:55 am

    this is ur come back video! Not that u didnt have it anymore even when u was getting burnt out u was far more entertaining then most internet celebs, but this video was one of the best u have done and with all the vids u did and as classic as they are thats saying something!!!!

  • May 11, 2010 at 11:58 am

    Amazing!!!! My friends and I would joke about that commercial all the time!

    Really cool too see you do some horror again! ^^

  • Mr. Dogma

    May 11, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    I loved how you’d unhesitatingly abandon Motherfucker Mike to the Mr. Bucket.

    “Get away from me! Suck his balls!”

  • May 11, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    The part where Mr. Bucket was outside the window, that made me jump. Excellent work!

  • just_a_friend

    May 11, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    Bravo. Your work is evolving. Often I pay close attention to your home. Your a very interesting person.

    good thing your utility sink drain was clogged…

  • May 11, 2010 at 12:34 pm

    Haha this was amazing, you turned Board James into a mini horror movie!

  • K6CTX

    May 11, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    Motherfucker Mike finally got what was coming to him, that motherfucker.

  • May 11, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    I’m amazed at how you could make a long & entertaining episode out of something so simple. You’re a good film maker.

  • May 11, 2010 at 12:38 pm

    lmao XD

  • SMaster777

    May 11, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    This is Board James’s first game destruction, isn’t it?

  • May 11, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    excellent vid, lots homage to a lot of the classics! great stuff!

  • May 11, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    I definitely wasn’t expecting that XD

    Although I was sad you stopped doing AGVN so often, I can see now that you’re putting a lot more effort into your other productions. Cheesy as fuck, but this was really good for a Board James episode. Legitimately a horror/comedy twist, and after the first couple times you made me actually believe the Mr. Bucket was alive- you know, in my imagination at least.

    ~thumbs up~

  • angryrabbit

    May 11, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    absolutely awesome! this was fantastic, James! bravo!

    you know it’s weird. i thought it was just me and my friends who thought mr bucket was rather filthy. i mean, i remember sitting in the living room watching that saying,” wait, did he just say ‘balls come out my mouth?'”

    brilliant film-making, James, and i gotta say the phone scenes with Motherfucker Mike’s window seen thru yours, that is just genius. where did you get that idea from, just out of curiousity?

  • sw204me

    May 11, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    You make the most epic stuff. I love the video that show your house though, you got the coolest fucking crib dude.

  • May 11, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    Now that deserves a comment. Wow, simply amazing, I always knew that M r Bucket was up to no fuckin’ good.

  • JumpShouldNotBeUP

    May 11, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    The best part was in the cellar, when Mr. Bucket popped his head out, then vanished again, and then eerily sang ”Eerrgh… I’m gonna suck on your baaaaaaaaawwwwlss….”

  • May 11, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    No wonder they stopped making Mr Bucket…

    Thanks for making a merely amusingly suggestive child’s toy into an instrument of pure horror.

    Also I love how you and Mike play with toys intended for 4 year olds when your wife’s not home LMAO. Do Elefun next.

  • CinematicRadio

    May 11, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    That was so awesome. It was unlike any Board James we’ve ever seen, but it was definitely the best. Keep these coming!

  • May 11, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    Cojoneeeeesssss!!!! Baaaaaaallsss!!! XDDD

    Love your work James, and this was no exception. 10/10

    May 11, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    This was probably the best horror and comedy movie that has come out for a long time. Even thought it was short, it started with comedy, Then it changed to horror, and first time for years, I really almost jumped up from my chair when something scary happened. In the end I didn’t know if I should be laughing or be scared so I did little bit both. The mood was GREAT, none of the horror movies nowadays manage to set that type of mood and feeling for the scenes.

    And to think that this was only a boardgame review…

    With one word, the episode was AWESOME

    This one was awesome, my favourite ‘ till now. The lights, the camera moves ( reminds me to Sam Raimi’s style). Your house is so big man.
    I like your Army of Darkness poster, and, what the hell? There’s a drum set there? you have a music band? seriously, your productions are getting better and better.

    James and Mike.. This was fucking class! I loved the stop motion on the couch, the bucket coming in frame from the window and the drowning scenes.. Just class..
    The best Board James atm.. And that does say a lot!

    “Mr. Bucket? More like Mr. F*ck It!”

    I was totally expecting that line to come up. πŸ˜›

    But in all seriousness, you’ve been doing AVGN for so long, I completely forgot that you were a horror fan. This was definitely a pleasure to watch and just feels more like your early works, going back to the past and making independent movies with your friends. The time and effort it took to make this shows throughout the vid. Great work and now onto the next project. πŸ™‚

    P.S. You don’t really sleep on a single bed, do you? Married and all? Or was that just a futon in the corner for prop purposes?

    Now THIS is quality. I had heard that you were posting a new video, and I thought to myself, “If it’s anything like previous installments, it will leave me depressed and a little empty.” Much of the world’s programming is like that today. But after viewing this episode, I will say that I was neither depressed nor empty. You made me feel the particular emotions by the tone of the video that a true master can make an audience feel. When the bucket appeared outside the window at night, I was startled and laughed out loud because of this good filmmaker made me feel an emotion. Lots of shades of Gothic horror as well (I was not oblivious to the movie you were watching). You see, if you put a lot of time into your work and effort, you produce a quality piece. If you just don’t give a shit and don’t care if you are being lazy, what we get is something like your last Board James video (or if I may speak bluntly, something like “Action 52).

    Hey, was that a bit of DCK during the intro? I cant check at the moment but it sounded like Dreamatorium or maybe Monolith. Hmm.

    Excellent video! I always love it when you take the time to work with the technical aspects of filming rather than just sitting in front of the camera like some goober on youtube. I would much prefer a video like this every month or two, than 3-4 videos in that timespan that are underwhelming or just leave you wishing they were more. But I guess I understand avgn pays (some of the) bills.

  • May 11, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    Great genuine experience in many years, finally James, congrats! If this is for what you took an AVGN break, then you are the man! Don’t stress by time, I’ll keep checking your portfolio once in a while anyways, as long as it reach a worthwhile level of quality, because, honestly, I had enough of AVGN the day you started caring about ‘active’ viewers. You are not cinemassacre, you are James Rolfe. with local friends πŸ™‚ Keep it that way!!! And wish you to considerate more professional filmmaking langage learning soon.

  • May 11, 2010 at 2:40 pm

    You son of a bitch. You killed Mr. Bucket! All he wanted to do was suck on your balls! lol! “I swore I turned you off. No, you turn me on.” Hahaha!!! I never laughed so hard in my life as I have to your latest Board James video. Man that was a great new video. Oh, and you have a really nice home, James. Thanks for sharing that with us too. Keep them Board James, AVGN and other videos coming. Hope you come up with some new Bullshit man videos too.

  • Hastur

    May 11, 2010 at 4:05 pm

    Very entertaining video, I really liked

    -use of shadow, reminded me of Bram Stokers Dracula

    -use of stop motion, reminded me of that crazy scary backwards crawling down the stairs asian zombie ghost demon from one of those Japanese horror films (the grudge I think…the Japanese one)

    -the whole taking the batteries out and putting it in the box…it reminded me of that great 1974 George C Scott film The Changeling where he threw the ball into the river…and went home to find it bouncing down the stairs towards him…great great ghost film, one of the true classics

    -that Operation Wolf poster/cartridge whatever above the Army of Darkness poster in your basement…I spent a lot of hours playing that lame shitty game…but for the C64 it was the shit graphics-wise

    Nice work, your production values are improving (what was the movie you were watching when you nodded off? was that Frankenstein?)

  • Jigglysaint

    May 11, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    There is somthing exteremly uncomfortable about having a children’s toy obsessed with sucking you off. It’s actually alot like that Nostalgia Crittic episode with the evil Teddy Ruxpin. I haven’t see the whole “take somthing sweet and innocent and twist it for evil” premise done in a long time. In fact it might be a pretty good thing to do since it would scare the crap out of people to see their favorite toys try to do horrible things to them.

  • nivek

    May 11, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    I’m just writing to say how I find it sad that horror movies today don’t set a mood as scary as this nowadays. I mean sure this was suppose to be just for laughs and I didn’t get scared at all, but this actually did better than most standard horror movies that can only do jump scares at best.

    Just a home camera, an old-toy and two guys who love making movies puts Hollywood to shame.

    I like how you now do Board James videos by talking to MotherF***er Mike. In the first few Board James videos you addressed the audience directly, making the reviews seem like just a Board Game version of the Angry Video Game Nerd videos.

    You’re doing a great job of making Board James videos distinctly different from the Angry Video Game Nerd videos.

    YOUR BEST VIDEO EVER. This “extra time” really paid off, the lightning, camera angles and movement of Mr Bucket are extraordinary! ThereΒ΄s some very nice acting going on at the end as well, especially the deathsequence and aftermath comes to mind. And the closing line is very true to the genre, the most convinsing and satisfying ending of any of your videos.

    I never thought youΒ΄d top AVGN, but Board James is even better.

I had Mr. Bucket for about 10 years and when he finally broke I threw him away, Later that day I was taking out the trash and I hear this *ding* coming from the trash can. Mr.bucket had sprung back to life and started to move his arms and make the ding noise.
    I was scared as fuck.

  • Sheeyah

    May 11, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Production quality notwithstanding, I actually didn’t care for this episode. I guess that puts me in the extreme minority. I actually enjoyed the beginning where you point out it’s our dirty minds that twist it into something vulgar. The rest is just another version of something that’s been done before. And I don’t know how you drown a plastic bucket. In fact, I expected it to suddenly pop up at the end.

    May 11, 2010 at 10:17 pm

    to be all honest. i do not believe this should be in Board james, rather it should be Films. A few reasons for what I say is this.
    1. There is no real review of the game.
    2. It is not a board game.

    Holy shit, James. This was THE best short film that you’ve ever made. It was thrilling, suspenseful, hilarious, and downright awesome. Your basement set the perfect mood as did as the stairway. Also the fact that it all happened at night contributed to the frightening effect. If it wasn’t so damn funny I would have pissed my pants because it shook me up so much. Loved it, great job Mike and James.

  • myk1217

    May 11, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    To be honest, I was never a big fan of Board James until this episode.

    Before this, the board game reviews were simply just, “Hey, this is a board game. This is how it is played.” And then you give alittle backstory on it. Honestly, it was nothing more than what I could have gotten by searching the game up on Wikipedia.

    But this episode reveals the true potential of Board James. You should continue to find creative ways to turn these videos into being more cinematic. Because really, you can’t “review” a board game like you can a video game or movie. I hope this isn’t just a special treatment for this one episode. I highly encourage you to keep going in a more cinematic direction with Board James.

    Good work, James! This is fantastic!

  • jtenrec

  • WilliamPope

    May 12, 2010 at 1:06 am

    When Mr. Bucket jumped up outside the window I gasped, jumped, dropped a bowl of Raman noodles, smashed my knee into my desk, and woke up my girlfriend.

    All I can say is “Bravo.”

  • jason24589

    May 12, 2010 at 1:20 am

    James, On Wikipedia about Mr. Bucket that on commercial said “Balls pop out of my mouth.” This slogan has proven to be quite humorous and controversial, because of its reference to the male genitalia being close to the bucket’s mouth. It is called about balls on mouth is Tea bag, a pervert about woman licking balls!

    Website (In Pop Culture, there is your video that did your review)

    Thanks, James and Mike for reviewing about a pervert toy! πŸ˜‰

  • May 12, 2010 at 1:21 am

    Absolutely fantastic, James! It had the perfect mix between comedy and suspense. There were parts where I actually laughed so hard I had to pause the video, which was because the suspense parts had built up the tension so that when it was funny, it was really funny. Not to say that Mr. Bucket at the window was pretty scary too.

    May 12, 2010 at 2:01 am

    Pretty hilarious. I use to joke about this with my friends over the years about why they stopped selling these. We decided that there had been too many lawsuits from genital injury due to people putting their junk in its mouth and having it mangled by the clicking mechanism that launches the balls.

    I have to say that this isnt really much of a review, but then again how through can you possibly be able picking up balls and dropping them in a bucket? Regardless it was quite entertaining and Im sure my friends will get a big laugh out of it too when I show them.

  • djdeluxe76

    May 12, 2010 at 2:02 am

    I liked this one a lot. You’re editing techniques have improved a whole lot compared to the other film experiments on this site. Also the devil’s lighting (lighting from below the hero upwards) was used very effectively in this episode – especially in the living room scene. The stop motion sequence of the first jump onto the couch was also awesome – a perfect balance between you can tell it’s stop motion and you can just enjoy the overall effect. Also the music that was picked was very good and hit the mood perfectly.

    “Oh! But you turn me on!” With no doubt, this is my favorite part on this video, just amazing.
    I want to take this opportunity to thank James for his worries about the earthquake that happened here, in Chile. I live in the V Region and the movement was on the VIII Region, but even when it was very far from my house, I never saw a earthquake this big, I mean, everybody knows that was a big one, 8.8 I think, but my house moved so hard that I thought it was going to fall apart. Anyway, James, from one of your fans in Chile, thanks man.

    Okay, this is not a Board James review, it’s a fullflejed thriller short film, and it’s brilliant!!!

    The lighting in this is a masterpiece.
    And call me crazy, but I’m willing to bet the scene where Mr Bucket goes for James’ balls on the couch was done in stop motion… not sure…

    And I suspected that Mike’s appartment window had been added in, but seeing Mr. Bucket pop up was just cool and unexpected (also very smart to have him pop up from the ceiling)

    Also, with James being such a horror fan, I was totally expecting a “choke on ’em” reference from Mike… too bad.

    Just a great little piece of film folks!!

  • May 12, 2010 at 3:46 am

    while this is entertaining i must say it isnt what i watch board james for :\
    i did THROUGHLY enjoy it but i would far prefer the episodes to focus more on the review of the game. having said that it is nice to see something like this occasionally (the bugs bunny’s birthday blowout episode of avgn was hilarious) but i was quite upset to see it done with ,what i feel, could be an even better show this early

    That a great!. It’s was actually very unsettling and a good little horror movie. I think a lot of kids were scared of their toys coming to life and if I saw this as a kid it probably would have given me nightmares.

    May 12, 2010 at 12:22 pm

    James… this is excellent, cinema quality work here. You are a really talented film dude. I think YOU should help write and direct the Spiderman reboot. That would be awesome!

    See, this is why I was FOR the reduction of AVGN movies. Quality work here shows because you had a bit of a break.

    The video was funny because the English word “balls” has a connotation that means testicles, even though it’s suppose to be a children’s toy… which would be inappropriate.

    I like what you did there. It was “buckets” of fun… I had a “ball”. I have sex with other males, and I am male, therefore I am gay. Nice work!

    p.s. Just being stupid, never mind me. πŸ™‚

    I like how it took James 14 seconds (in video) to begin to rescue Mike from Mr. Bucket. Though if I saw a children’s toy attempting to suck on my friends crotch I’d probably sit there for a few seconds myself.

    I love this vid πŸ˜€


    May 12, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    James. I made an account just so i could comment on this video. Wow, that was hilarious. When Mr. Bucket comes out from behind the couch, i burst out laughing. Brilliant piece of movie making and genuinely funny. You should upload this on your YouTube account ASAP. Make other people laugh πŸ˜€

I don’t hold it against you if you to take away some time from other things to increase quality on another video…. ….it was worth it. Some parts actually scared me and I jumped.

    I agree with Andoru. I think it’s time for a full length board james or AVGN movie. It will be better if you play as James and Mike, instead of made up characters. And is your wife ever going to make a cameo?

    Now this is what I call Board James. It’s not only a review, but it’s a movie as well. Like in weapons and warriors where there’s music and cinematic shots of the final part of the battle. So just make more Board James like that.

  • NiGHTS_2011

    May 12, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    Awesome! One of the best “Board James” yet. Love the horror movie style to it and the editing was pretty good like getting it to look like the bucket crawled across the floor and up the couch. Keep it up James!

  • Bob Sagat

    May 12, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Wow, that was really amazing. I love the shot where Mr. Bucket first enters the room on his own. So classic.
    The misdirection later on was really good too, when you were way in the background and that creepy fucker suddenly zips past in the foreground.

    Also, did you guys actually animate the scene where he goes for your balls the first time? That’s pretty awesome. Was he just moving too slow to look scary, or did you just want some animation in there?

    Anyway, great film. I’ve always loved the little cinematic touches in pretty much every one of your reviews which really separate you from all the other online video personalities. Great stuff!

  • Lithandrill

    May 12, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    I couldn’t agree more with Andoru. There are some stunning and haunting shots throughout the episode that even make that damned bucket look creepy. (Especially like the mirror in the basement and the shadow on the NES cartridges on the shelves)

    We all love your humour of course but I know I would love to see a feature length original and serious horror movie made by you. You’ve got an awesome fanbase here so perhaps this is a good opportunity to move to something bigger. Cinematography like in this episode show that you have the potential to make a great horror flick!

  • andrucks

    May 12, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    the best cinematography I have seen, they way you used light / shadow was realy good. I enhoyd it on the same level as enny full lenth film I have seen. when you make a movie for the silver screen I will defently see it.

    soz for the spell fails

  • May 12, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    Awesome, I loved the atmosphere and cinematography in this, the comedic value was great as well.

    This was amplified by the fact that my friend walked in to my house on the phone with his girlfriend and the video playing on my pc blasted “IM MR BUCKET I JUST WANNA SUCK YOUR BALLS! (or something to that extent) in which case I could hear his girlfriend yelling at him as he laughed and walked out of my room.

    Haha, anyways, great short!

  • DarkLotusEvil

  • Marcelo Tanisho

    May 12, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    This was great. James, you should just keep doing this kind of story-driven videos with Board James. I mean, board games doesn’t have the same visual appeal as videogames to support a video all by themselves.

    p.s. You’ve even inspired me to start writing screenplay. You’ve showed me that you don’t need to be that fancy to write a good movie, all you need is a good idea and great ambition. And in my case…you’ve inspired me by example which is just wow. Again i would like to pay you my respects and just say thanks.

    When I heard the music from The Deader The Better, I though, it’s about to get wild! The fact that you put that much efforts into a short “board” game review just proves how much you care about your fans.
    You never stop impressing me, keep it up. I’m telling you, if you create a full length movie and sell the DVD, I’ll be waiting in line for my copy and I’m sure that out of the hundreds of thousands of fans you have out there, a lot would do the same!!!

    But, I never expected something like this. That was… awesome! πŸ˜€ Hilarious, man. I don’t know where you come up with this stuff. I hope we see more Board James like this in the future.

    Very impressed you managed to induce real suspense during a short about a ball-sucking child’s toy. The extra time (or maybe time off?) put into the last few videos really shows. Can’t wait for the next one!

  • May 13, 2010 at 3:19 am

    Wow that was awesome, I really think the editing and the plot are very well handed, As Cactusman88 said, I’m actually ver impressed in how I felt actual suspense on a short with that kind of plot. The music is perfectly timed and gives the short a great finish.

    It’s obvious that your love for movies is actually helping you do shorts with lots of quality and semiotic (non-verbal) language.

    Best wishes, keep fiming stuff dude.

    Making videos less frequently was a great decision after all. The nerd series was losing quality fast. I think that’s more important than quantity… Bravo James!

    Had to register just to ask;

    Around 10:50, is that a Casino Royale reference?

    It reminds a lot about the murder scene before the opening credits.

    When they make a remake of Childsplay, we all know by now who the director SHOULD be, right ?
    ( and trust me , hollywood is in all horror remake mode at the moment so it will come, i am sure.)

    Also, the box that mr bucket came with was way to used for it to be healthy, how much did you play with that thing ?

    Well, I may have complained about the HeroQuest episode, but Mr. Bucket was awesome! Turning a Board James into a short film was pure genius. Nicely done!

    BTW – Anyone notice that Mr. Bucket kind of looks like Ronald McDonald? Yellow body, red nose, red and white stripes… odd.

    I like how you turned this into a traditional horror flick. I can tell you put a lot of work into it, the lighting you used at times were nice too. My favorite touch would have to be the phone setup, where you would talk on the phone and see mike in the background talking to you. But awesome and hilarious overall. Also Im guessing Mike did the voices for Mr.Bucket. I love it. A+

  • piratinflas

    May 13, 2010 at 11:14 am

    Great great job…. I really like the “mini films” episodes, the AVGN ones with history and costumes are awesome too. Like the bugs bunny, batman, elm street friday the 13, etc.

    Great work, this is a new genre, the torture “sucking balls” porn.

    Did anyone noticed in the scene when James is phoning Mike the second time there is a FACE that shows actually 3 times before Mr. Bucket appears? it appears at the right bottom side of the window, someone with a mask, reminds me of Halloween mask, it scared me to hell, i dont know if it was actually someone outside or a reflection. O_O

    btw good job James keep it up it was scary and hillarious. πŸ˜€

    May 13, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    This was an AWESOME special episode James! The plot was funny, and Mike delivered some excellent comedy relief with “Mr. Bucket”, haha! Man, if I ever see that relic from our childhood past, I’d better keep my guard up! Also, great cinematography as always and the eerie music was superb. Kinda reminded me of the BGM of the Resident Evil/ Bio Hazard Remake on the Gamecube.

  • Sangu

    May 13, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    Hey James,

    really good video, you definately put a lot of effort in it. I love the plot, the lights are great and the sound came out nice too. on the sofa there’s a stoptrick, right? that’s the only thing that I bothered me a little because it kinda broke the flow. also the reflection in the window is a little annoying, but beside that, great job!

    keep up the good work!

    btw I saw that face too <.< scary…

  • May 13, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Hell yeah! Now that was awesome!
    What a great way to mix horror with humor!

  • Prom King

    May 13, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    They say we live in an age where every one can can make a movie. The technology has never been cheaper and easier to use and yet we see less and less movies like this. The way you use lights, photography and music is hands down amazing. It looks really cool and it’s just amazing how you manage to capture that creepy feel in good old 4:3 format. It has this nice american homemade tone which is something we rarely see this days with all this full HD “cool guys” moving their DOF up and down all the time and raping us with blur flashes and “indie” music.

    I’ve been enjoying your videos for years now, and I want to say that I really appreciate your work.

  • May 13, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    As funny as this episode was, the part with Mr. Bucket looking in the window actually really creeped me out! Nicely done. This was one of the best episodes so far.

    I remember this game, especially the commercial you’ve shown.

  • May 13, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    What happened to M. Mike? Your Board James videos with Mike Matei are very similar to the other ones where you and him are just talking, as yourselves.
    It’s good this way too, but it was a very drastic change. It doesn’t look anymore like a video series about a board game expert playing them with a cheater.

  • gamerdude122

    May 13, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    That was quite possibly one of the funniest and scariest videos I have ever seen. Who knew Mr. Bucket could be so terrifying. James, your talent seems to get better each and every year with directing and acting.

  • May 13, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    This is probably the best video I have seen from you. I was actually making fun of Mr. Bucket a few weeks ago and even started using him as my Skype avatar. And now just a short while later, you make an entire horror video about it, making fun of the very thing me and many others have. The timing is like………I don’t know. but It’s awesome.

  • May 13, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Excellent video, I think it was great. I enjoyed it more than Action 52.

  • Maverick

    May 13, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    I really like this one. I wasn’t sure where you were going with it. It surprised me, but I was more surprised that when you pulled the batteries on the toy that they were there. In a way it reminded me of a nerd video. Perhaps you can do something like this in the future. Maybe you can do another cross platform. Either way, I like the video. Keep up the good work.

  • May 13, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    I must say, it’s definitely my favorite Board James video (Sorry Crossfire)! Over all, it’s a fantastic video. Great usage of shadows, I must add as well.

  • May 13, 2010 at 11:26 pm

    @liberator… actually it’s not uncommon for the industry to make games with overtly suggestive blue material. It’s more common in cartoons, but it does pop up in a lot of board games and toys as well. The oozinator is a great example. In all likeliness the toy was innocent enough, but I’m sure the marketing department did have a little fun with it.

  • Sephit

    May 13, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    This episode was awesome, definitely the best episode in a really long time. I think it was around the 9:30 mark when the music gets loud and the Mr. Bucket pops on the right side of the screen that I actually got surprised and jolted haha. Nice Word James, keep it up!

    I have to say, this was amazing. I’m not gonna lie, I wasn’t sure to expect when I started watching this. I thought it was just going to be another board James. To my surprise I was shocked with a scary film that to be honest actually had me anxious. I don’t even know what it was that got me scared. The lighting, the music, the dialog, It all worked an built. You had me scared of Mr. Bucket! I mean holy crap, It wasn’t to scary to watch but It got me anxious. Favorite part was the second phone call where you were asking if your friend could come over. It just felt so real to me. Your love for movies really shows in this short and I’m glad to see the passion for making movies will never be lost. I saw you as AVGN, and I love the character but now I see you as so much more.

    @Mishobu: I counted 4 times and it is Mr. Bucket. It comes in 4 times faintly and then BAM!, right into the window! lol! No matter how many times I watch this I laugh my ass off at all the jokes. “I’m Mr. Bucket. Wanna fuck it?” lol!

  • XaviorSama

    May 14, 2010 at 4:39 am

    The fact of the matter is, as a child, i still found the theme song a little weird and suggestive. I was 10 mind you when it was released, so i was well within the self awareness age grouping. In all fairness being offended by peoples reactions to the theme song is a bit much, and well if you cant handle it i suggest you go buy a sense of humor. I hear they’re free now a days and available for download from various websites >.> <..> but i digress. When MF Mike hit the floor for some reason i seen a little bit of the joker performance come out, maybe it was the frantic movement or maybe its one of my favorite roles that he has played in the AVGN series. Fucking fantastic video, took me by surprise because i couldn’t picture making a full episode on such a simplistic toy. Its about as simple as Elefun the elephant game, a nice distraction for children while you sit and play some games. Preferably hand held because of the running around and what not. lol. Kudos again, keep up the great work guys.

I like them both equally. You’ve got the critics funny approach on bad movies, you’ve got James serious, inspirational, and relatable movie/nerd reviews, and, just to through a 3rd in there, you’ve got Yahtzee from The Escapist funny/overly exagerated reviews of modern games. Even so, if I were to take EVERY thing from James, EVERY thing from Doug, and Everything from Yahzee, it would rank with James as #1, Doug as #2, and Yahtzee as #3…what was i talking about again?………Oh yeah, this is a lot like the Critic’s Halloween special with Teddy Ruckspin.

    May 14, 2010 at 11:39 pm

    One of my favorite movies you have ever made. It was creepy, but stinking hilarious. Didn’t remind me of Teddy Ruckspin, but for some reason of the very first AVGN Halloween Specials, with Jason and Freddy. Probably because your heart was particularly in them. And that couch. When all’s said and done with, that’ll be your biggest ebay sale.

    Absolutely awesome. I can’t wait to see what other stuff you can cook up when you have extra time on your hands! I especially like how you turned an extremely simple, two second game (that even kids get bored with, by the way) into a horror video. Brilliant.

  • May 15, 2010 at 12:47 am

    James and Mike. This has to be one of the most ingenious things you have done. I am huge fan of your Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre sends up with AVGN but this is just blows those away. How this builds and builds to the climax, the scares and how you effectively “cry-wolf” (in other words the “fake” scare) makes this better than most horror movies out there today. To say this nails the genre I feel doesn’t even give you the credit you deserve. This is right there in the halls of greatness. Awesome work!

  • Butch Bitch

    May 15, 2010 at 6:54 am

    “I thought I turned you off!

    Funny very funny I remember Mr Bucket I also remember Heros Quest , that was a fun game I wish I still had it but never got to actually play it with other people.

    A board game that you might enjoy is Atmosfear a cool board game, great it would be awsome to play with 4 other people

  • JTvortex

    May 15, 2010 at 11:36 pm

    I thought that it was really good. Nothing less than what I expect from one of your videos, however although I thought the ending was good I think that it would’ve been cool if you made it a twist ending. For example instead of you drowning it in the sink have it be that your a schizophrenic and have the bucket kill someone ore something. I don’t know I’m just throwing out ideas here. Well great video and can’t wait for the next!

  • May 16, 2010 at 12:44 am

    I remember seeing Mr.Bucket on tv like 15 mabey 20 years ago. I think my friends and I knew then that it wasn’t a very well thought out kids toy. We would make fun of it and say it was a little creepy looking. Who hasn’t thought that?
    BUT, you have given Mr.Bucket a whole new meaning of creepy! The next time I head over to my sisters place I’m headed straight to her old toy closet, and I’m gonna smash that evil Mr.Bucket shes got hiding in there. I know it’s in there, and it’s going down!!!

    Mr Bucket jumping out of the water in dramatic slow motion ala Jason Voorhees at the end of Friday the 13th would have been perfect.

    Awesome Episode, way to take the Mr Bucket “balls in my mouth” joke and turn it on its head and into something completely original.

    I even flinched at the 7:52 mark

    I’ll never look at Mr Bucket the same way again.

    Around the 7:00 mark I was happy to breathe a sigh of relief. For a moment there, I was afraid James was going to wake up to an extreme case of raging wood. Thankfully, Mr. Bucket did his best bed pan act and proved me wrong but I don’t know which is worse. Great short that puts a twist on a beloved children’s game.

  • Vulpine Phantom

    May 19, 2010 at 2:52 am

    Did anyone else notice when James put Mr. Bucket down in the basement for the first time some of the board games he reveied where under it. Weapons and Warroirs, Dragon Strike, Hero’s Quest. I could not make out the yellow one but it may be mousetrap. Or possibly an easter egg to the next game he is doing…..Then again I may be reading to much into it.

  • Jigglysaint

    May 19, 2010 at 10:36 am

    I noticed in the title card that Mr. Bucket’s arms look just like Freddy. It’s those little things I notice that always make a Cinemassacre production so great to watch. There are all sorts of little nods to various things hidden all over the place. I think this is what, the 5th time I watched the Mr Bucket episode. It’s pefect because it’s funny and scary and it both takes itself seriously and yet not.

    The other thing I found rather funny was that I recall there being talks about bringing Milton Bradley games, like Monopoly, to the big screen. Since Mr. Bucket is also a MB game, it’s like a parody of what Hollywood is doing to all these things we grew up with. I guess it must be an indie thing to do to make fun of the shallowness and lack of creativity of Hollywood. Funny though how you can turn some innocent child’s toy into a terrifying horror concept.

  • May 19, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    Lol love the scene where Mr.Bucket come take a look in the window just like in Halloween. Grate job on the sound effects.

    I also love the way you tell the truth behind the add of Mr. Bucket. I don’t know if you see that add with the 5h4mw0w guy who is promoting some kind of cuter to help you cut vegetables, but the guy actualy say “you will love my nuts”. I am sure the advertisers of Mr. Bucket were behind this.

  • May 21, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    Awesome vid James. Glad you have time to have fun once again. I loved how the movie played out like a classic slasher flick. It’s the perfect choice when you’ve got someone as serious as Mr. Bucket. Who was voicing him? Did you use a modulator? I had to give a good smile when he first said “I’m Mr. Bucket!”. The whole wanting to suck on peoples balls was good too, believe it or not I don’t think alot of people would think up something as crazy as Mr. Bucket coming to life to suck on peoples balls.

    On a side note. And I know you didn’t ask for it. I think taking the batteries out after the fact that we saw Mr. Bucket move around on the ground and climb up to your balls was kind of too little too late. Taking them out before that would of had more of an effect I think… but the shots of Mr. Bucket were just incredible, they REALLY made him seem alive.

  • occamsmonkey

    May 21, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    So watching the scene where Mr. Bucket first comes into the room, it looks like the clock goes from 1:52 to 1:51 (hard to tell at Internet quality), but that would mean you were running the movie backwards, filming, and then ran the result backwards in editing. Awesome!

  • May 21, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    There were some really cool shots in this! I especially liked the point-of-view from James’ perspective when the Bucket first came in the room. And everything during the drowning scene was flat out beautiful. Well done!

    Slightly off topic, there was a board game I had as a child that’s set up in Dracula’s castle. It had several playing peices.

    Not only do you have to try and kill dracula as the players, but you also get to play as vampire slaves and dracula as well!

    I remember the game came with vampire masks, so if you get taken by dracular, you don the mask and use the green vampire playing peice and hunt down your fellow players.

    After searching the net, I found the games name. it’s called “the game of dracula”

    You should try and find it, James. It was quite fun to play!

    James, every time I see that stack of board games it makes me wish I had shared a childhood with you. If you’re ever up in southern Ontario, come crash at my place and we’ll play some Heroclix. Also, during the chase I noticed a poster for a game I haven’t thought about in probably a decade…. Operation Wolf!

  • May 25, 2010 at 8:55 am

    dude, the shot with you in the chair and mr. bucked coming around the corner for the first time… that’s sooo kubrick, the wide angle shot and all. looks like youo had a lot of fun making this one and it shows. keep it up, james!

    Instant classic and favorite right there! Awesome job! Whoever you got to do the Mr. bucket voice was spot on! And you’re such a great friend at the end there, “Suck on his balls!” Could you imagine if something like that worked in Halloween or Friday the 13th? “Don’t stab me in the chest! Stab him in the chest!”

    Great Video, loved the story and especially the effects.
    No offense, but one thing threw me off a little: your acting when you were on the phone with mike. It seemed like you weren’t taking the whole situation seriously, as opposed to the other situations, where you were scared shitless. Just a little constructive criticism.
    oh, one question though, that scene where you fall asleep in your chair makes the whole thing seem like it’s just a bad dream, was that intentional?
    anyways, great video

    Good work Board James. Let’s hope you do Monopoly soon. I’d like to see what you do with that. I hope it’s just as good as this video, or close. It doesn’t matter. As long as I get a laugh, I’m fine with it.

    Nice work. The whole ‘Mr. Bucket’s gonna suck my balls’ thing is funny. Though to tell you the truth, the video definitely dragged out longer than it should have.

  • mcdude910

    June 1, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    This was the best Board James ever! I laughed my…, no im not gonna say it, lol, ass off watching it. my favorite line was “you didnt turn me off. You turned me on!” keep up the great work! definitely worth only one AVGN a month! if you continue to make non-AVGN videos this great, go ahead and work on other projects. i was very skeptical at first but i see why you did it.

  • Synthetek

    June 1, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    Even though the phone scenes were pretty cheesy, with badly times smiles and such in a “serious” conversation, I found it to be a pretty funny movie. The only issue I had were those phone calls. Perhaps they were done solely to be surreal, in which case they succeeded, but I felt like they could have added more to the atmosphere if you hadn’t have “recapped” the previous events completely.

    The voice dubs on Mr. Bucket were done excellently, and the animation on him was great! Truly terrifying is the idea of a balls-eating bucket. I am a big fan of your videos, and hope to see more soon!

  • Ozis Apoes

    June 5, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    Mmm seeing how Mr. Bucket was released in 1992, I can’t believe the makers didn’t intend to make him as scary as possible.
    It’s sleeves are exactly the same as the doll from poltergeist (1982), also the vertical pattern of the sleeves are the same as Freddy (A Nightmare On Elm Street, 1986) and Chucky (Child’s Play, 1988). While this type of pattern was “popular” during the making of these films, it was already dying out/dead when Mr. Bucket hit the market.

    Am I thinking too much about this? I sincerely doubt it. :p

  • Pogiforce

    June 9, 2010 at 12:11 am

    Awesome vid. All of the elements of a good horror film were there, the well timed sounds and appearances, awesome work. Only flaw: James you locked the door behind yourself going into the basement it looked like. To keep the bucket out, I imagine. So how did Mike get in? Or is there another door down there I’m not aware of?

  • June 9, 2010 at 9:16 am

    All I have to say is, thank god I don’t have a Mr. Bucket. Awesome work!

  • The Ed b

    June 9, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    First of all.
    @Pogiforce. My guess is that the mr bucket entered the basment through the door after it was locked, therefore opening the door for mike or an alternate route. As for how the bucket got through the locked door? He’s a ball crazed bucket, the possibilities are endless.
    Secondly . I had to laugh at the announcer on the commercial. β€œthe first to get their balls into mr bucket wins!” does that mean Mike won? Or was James already defiled when he was in bed?

  • June 9, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    Truly epic filmmaking! James nailed the cinematic horror vibe perfectly! I like the Nosferatu framing of certain scenes.

    I don’t know if it’ll restart the “…ate my balls” Internet meme. Not since Mr. T was there anything so purile yet this is even more deliriously silly in execution. But here you have video of a ball-eater which makes it much better than photos and captions. Then again, back then streaming video on the Internet was in its infancy.

    Forget Sundance! This is indie filmmaking at its finest! πŸ™‚

  • ZepplinFan91

    Crazy Funny… Mr. Bucket is mad creepy with his clown nose!!! god i hate clowns… glad u drowned that bastard

    on the filming side of it… great production and even better story after the game play.. and another reason y AVGN and Board James is a hit and continues to be awesome

  • deadbabies

    June 10, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    It’s nice to see Mike as Mike for a change. I know he helps you out a lot with your stuff but as a more behind the scenes guy, but it’s still good to see him.

    Also, I cried laughing when Mr. Bucket first came out. Cried. Thanks guys.

    June 12, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    This is my favorite Board James. That thing was scary as hell, and I laughed my ass off. I loved the part where it jumped you in your living room and that breakdance-spin resulted as you tried to fend it off! And you were so serious about drowning the thing, it was wonderful to behold. If you hadn’t been playing that straight, it wouldn’t have been half as good. For this Board James alone, it was worth you taking a rest from the Nerd. Is there a way you could pick apart a version of Risk, to satisfy those of us who didn’t quite get enough from the Kickassia cameo?

    Also, @ Mike, thanks for fixing my account issue.

  • June 13, 2010 at 6:03 pm

    Can you answer me one question: From which movie is the poster right beside the GHOSTBUSTERS poster at 3:30, 3:47 and 8:18? I recognized the others as GHOSTBUSTERS, INDIANA JONES 1, STAR WARS and WIZARD OF OZ!

  • Xenoka

    July 15, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    I enjoyed this very much! Reminded me of something i saw once of an old movie with something small like a robotic monkey in some guys house that they filmed trying to make a horror film. Can’t think of who it was but i think it had something to do with the people that made Planet of the Apes. Really wish i knew what it was. Anyway, keep up the good work, hope to see more like this! (as in they have a little besides just the game, such as… well… most of the other board james episodes πŸ˜› )

  • Xenoka

    July 16, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    My brother says it was M. Night Syamalan’s first movie that he ever created, as a kid, so I’m not sure where to figure that out at but I think you should check it out as the part when the bucket first moves with your feet and tv in the same shot reminded me of a shot in that movie that was about the exact same shot (as i remember at least)

  • lionlake

    July 16, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    Really the whole point of the game is like to clean it up!
    That bucket is spitting balls all over the place and you need to bring them back to the bucket. That’s not fun! That’s just bullshit!

    By the way, how funny it must have been to film this xD. I mean, just imagine :P.

  • mad2physicist

    July 16, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    The use of lighting in this was very effective. It reminded me of the way some older movies used high contrast light and shadow to enhance the mood, which has really fallen by the wayside it seems in a lot of ‘mainstream’ filming.

    LOL…. I had the exact same facial expressions as James when watching this video. Only my look was in reference to him proudly displaying his Apple laptop in the beginning of the video.

    This reminds me of the film Doom house, made by Lowtax and Fragmaster. Thought the production value of your Mr. Bucket-short is way superior.

    Keep up the amazing work James.

    I used to hate that commercial. That stupid song would get stuck in you head. How annoying!!!!

    I also have a game that would be cool to see you do a review on.

    Its Berzerk Board Game, I think it was also a crummy video game.

  • September 15, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    This reminds me of Ghostbusters/ the ghost head scene with Ray. Man, this has some hilarious shit going on!

    I like the mood and the part with the audio pan in the basement. Awesome video. Mike’s voices are always really funny too.

  • skrokorn

    September 16, 2010 at 5:02 pm

    That was freakin’ awsome! but I also noticed you have the board game “heroQuest”. My brother and I played that game to death, not only did we have both the expantion packs but we bought two more of the normal boards and used them all together. we also made up a system where you could level up your characters, ya we also played alot of d&d, so that explains the leveling up part.

  • September 17, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    Does anybody hear that moment

    James “I thought I turned you off!!!”

    Mr. Bucket “Oh but you turned me ooonnn….”

    Man, James you’re a pretty creative guy. Your movies aren’t always laugh out loud funny, But your voice if therapeutic so that’s usually why I watch them. But this, This was creepy as balls. WHEN IT WAS ON THE CEILING and that fucking window scene.

    Anyway, creepy as shit. Your work totally paid off. I enjoyed this a lot.

    If I had that toy, I’d definitely get rid of it after watching this video. Please don’t make any horror movies about creepy household objects.

  • Poison Pawn

    October 21, 2010 at 2:47 am

    I finally caught my breath…. my little brother who is also James was absolutely terrified when my parents bought this “game” as a christmas gift when he was the age of 6 or so. My parents and sister still to this day remind him of his horrible terror that he experienced whenever they would take the thing out of the closet. He would scream… seriously. Lol. Too much information I know… but my brother James is currently a US foreign exchange student in Germany and I’ve been looking for a humorous way of connecting with him online now that I’m back from serving in Iraq. I will send him your video for Halloween and we will laugh together like we used to. Thanks! And long live the Nerd!

  • ThePhilosopher

    December 19, 2010 at 11:22 am

    Surely when James was on the phone it should have been – ‘James just leave the bucket alone and masterbate normally like everybody else.’

    Then when Mike came round James should have been caught actually enjoying the bucket! ‘Get out!’ ‘Oh, er, sorry, but er…’

  • January 2, 2011 at 1:27 am

    I remember that commercial. I was like 10 when it came out, and I realized how incredibly suggestive it was.

    This video is totally awesome. First time I saw it my friends and I were singing the bastardized version of the song for weeks. Every so often it creeps up and gets stuck in my head again. Truly great work done on this film, especially with the lighting and sound/music effects.

    Great short horror flic James and Mike!! I have two comments to make…Number 1 is that I was reminded of, “The Return of the Living Dead” especially in the basement sceen. It even sounded like when Thom Mathews yelled out to “Tina” that he forgave her, but still wanted to eat her brains!! Balls for Brains I guess..LOL Number 2, when Mr. Bucket popped up in the window after the second call to Mike, I jumped, but when he quickly slid accross the top of the couch when James was checking the door, I not only jumped, but I sh#t all over my brand new office chair! Do you have any idea how much “Resolve” I had to spray to get the stain out!?! Not to mention, it’s been 4 days and 2 bottles of “Fabreeze” and I still can’t get the f##king smell out of the room!! I love your videos, but you owe me a new office chair and perhaps a few candles that smell nice….Only joking, you don’t owe me anything James…Make Mike pay for it…LOL. You guys are great! Wish you the best of luck in everything you do bud!

  • quebecoiswolf

    February 10, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    I don’t have any sympathy for James and Mike here. The directions clearly state that your shovel should only be used to scoop up balls of the same color, otherwise, Mr. Bucket will become hostile. There’s always a penalty for breaking the rules and sometimes it just happens to be having a demonically possessed bucket try to suck on your testicles.

    Back story: A man, only known as Mr. Bucket because all that was known about him was that he worked at a bucket factory, was a pervert. He would sneak up behind people and make them unconcious by putting a rag soaked in chloroform around their nose and mouth, then he would suck on their balls. One time while trying to abduct someone a police officer saw what Mr. Bucket was trying to do and chased after him into the bucket factory. While being chased in the bucket factory Mr. Bucket accidentally got caught up in a machine that made buckets. Mr. Bucket was pulled through the machine and one of the ingredients in the making of the buckets somehow combined Mr. Bucket with all of the buckets that were being made. After that they started selling them as games, not knowing that they were actually all the perverted Mr. Bucket just waiting to make his move.

    Definitely loved this one. I’d honestly watch a full length movie like this if it was this well done.

    Hope there will be more.

    I’m happy to know that these games were made in earlier decades and that this generation isn’t solely responsible for birthing games about shoving plastic into outrageous characters and watching them shoot out again.

    I would love a sequel to this. Maybe “Mr. Buckets”, or “Bucket Resurrection”! πŸ™‚

    It’s amazing how he can take a harmless toy review and turn it into a horror.

    Ill shamefully admit the first time I watched this I was legitimately unsettled and on the verge of terrified but then it got too ridiculous and was just pure fun now I cant stop laughing.

    Am I the only one who would actually watch some horror themed content with James and Mike?

  • January 8, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    Awesome camera / shot work – no sound stages just in a house, got lighting, sound etc perfect. You guys should make a film oh wait… πŸ™‚ When’s the AVGN film out? πŸ˜€
