    Love MM! But unfortunately I can’t watch them without the video player going into slow motion 🙁 When are they going to be uploaded onto youtube?

      He can’t upload it onto the JamesNintendoNerd one (now named Cinemassacre), that’s for sure. And I don’t know if his Cinemassacre channel (now named James Rolfe) is partnered. Come to think of it, I’m not even sure whether JamesNintendoNerd is partnered anymore after what happened when it was mistakenly terminated. Can we get some clarification about that James and Mike? Is any of your channels part of the YouTube Partnership Program today?

        AVGN usually goes up onto the Cinemassacre youtube channel quite quickly so I assumed MM would be the same. If anyone has any ideas how to make the player work properly i’m open to suggestions, would make viewing stuff on here a lot easier.

    Ah, yes, the one where the Mummy fights Blacque Jacque Shellacque from Looney Tunes.

    Speaking of continuity mistakes, how about the Priests of Karnak suddenly becoming the Priests of Arkam?

    I would’ve liked to see you do a full review of Hammer’s The Mummy just to show that it’s a better Kharis movie than this. Maybe a Hammer Horror-A-Thon is possible! Speaking of which, I’m sure it’s obvious you’re doing the Hammer Frankenstein series next!

      He already did that film last year or the year before…he did awhole Hammer series…search the site for it…

      • Ryan Dippold

        October 5, 2013 at 11:22 am

        he did the hammer dracula series not the hammer frankenstein series though.

      • October 5, 2013 at 11:23 am

        He did the Hammer Dracula series, not Frankenstein. Check the site.

    Haha! “Pogs and AOL discs”

    Man…the 90s sure had it’s shitty moments. 😉

    • October 5, 2013 at 11:23 am

      Yes, but certainly a hell of a lot better than 2000 onward….

  • October 5, 2013 at 9:09 am

    Awesome video, man! Keep it up. Just watched all your past monster madness videos too.

    James: every year you reawaken my enthusiasm for Halloween, like a slumbering mummy. But don’t worry, I don’t drown anyone…

    YAY! New video!
    You spoil us James. It’s gonna be hard when Halloween is over.

    I’m having a feeling he’s not going to be doing the Friday the 13th series…which is a shame…it is the 1980’s most iconic slasher/horror series…James just doesn’t seem to have any love for that series…

    • October 5, 2013 at 10:39 am

      I’ve done plenty of Friday the 13th videos. Saying I don’t have any love for the series is a false assumption. I even appeared in the documentary His Name Was Jason. As far as Monster Madness goes, think about it. There’s 10 Friday the 13th movies. More if I choose to revisit Freddy Vs. Jason and the remake. That would be about 1/3 of the month right there.

      • y2j420

        October 5, 2013 at 5:47 pm

        I guess it is tough to agree with your assessment of too much Ft13th since, during the Sequel-a-thon, most of the month was made up of covering the Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street series…in the very least, since this current review had multiple films covered in it, you could always do what they did with the DVD’s and bluray of the Friday the 13th series and cover multiple films in each review…

        Just seems like a shame given the sequel quality of the Friday the 13th series is much better or at least holds itself better than some of the mid-to-late Halloween and Nightmare on Elm street movies…

    • October 5, 2013 at 11:20 am

      Well that’s just dandy, because I’d rather he cover older movies anyhow. The bloated slasher franchises are already covered enough, everywhere.

      • DMM_poo

        October 5, 2013 at 1:54 pm

        Agreed. Monster Madness is the main reason I love old movies now–not just horror movies, but classic cinema in general.

    • Radelta

      October 5, 2013 at 1:57 pm

      Can’t blame him. The friday the 13th series is awful. Every single one is a total piece of shit

      • y2j420

        October 5, 2013 at 5:38 pm

        Well the Friday the 13th series is in better regard than the Nightmare on Elm Street series and time was dedicated to it…

    This makes me want to check out that Hammer Mummy!

    • October 5, 2013 at 11:21 am

      In all honesty, the first three Hammer Mummy films are good. Especially the first two. Only the fourth, Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb, is a stinker. But that’s no surprise, as most of Hammer’s work went downhill going into the 70s, when they tried to go more for shock value than quality.

      • October 5, 2013 at 12:49 pm

        The Hammer Mummy is really awesome. I’ve never been a big Mummy fan, always my least favorite of the classic monsters, but I might like Hammer’s Mummy more than their Frankenstein and Dracula movies.

        It really embodies the best of Hammer. You’ve got the Cushing and Lee dynamic and a Jimmy Sangster script, all under the direction of Terrence Fisher. It takes a classic monster and incorporates the best parts of four mediocre movies with the typical amazing Hammer production design to make a very good movie.

  • October 5, 2013 at 10:59 am

    Nice! You reviewed like 7 films in this one! Great work, James! You’re doing awesome.

  • Crabjock

    October 5, 2013 at 11:16 am

    I’m sitting here, just trying to guess what may come up next. You would think being sequel based would make that easier.

    My guesses would be Hellraiser, Wishmaster, Puppetmaster, Pumpkinhead, and Alien. And I bet I’m not even right about one.

    • October 5, 2013 at 12:54 pm

      My guess is the Hammer Frankenstein, since last time we got the OTHER big Hammer series.

  • October 5, 2013 at 11:18 am

    I’m still holding out some hope for the old Gamera movies. 🙂

  • October 5, 2013 at 11:50 am

    Too bad they dropped the Andoheb character this time.

    No resolution there.

    This years Monster Madness has been so awesome so far!!!

    James did you see the new godzilla trailer?

  • capnmorgan5150

    October 5, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Monster Madness? More like Mummy Madness!

  • BladeRunner

    October 5, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    I hope he does some Hammer Horror films!!!

  • October 5, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    awesome job James. now that the mummy series is over, one can only assume that part 2 of the first half of monster madness 2013 would be something classic and the 2nd half would be focused on more modern slasher flicks. still waiting on Friday The 13th as the potential candidate. so far, it’s the most popular and most obvious choice.

    • y2j420

      October 6, 2013 at 9:22 am

      He said he won’t be doing the Friday the 13th films since they’d take up too much of Monster Madness…which is kind of false since he had no problem taking up half of the first Sequel-a-thon with the Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street sequels…most of which are much worse than any of the Friday the 13th sequels…

      I enjoy the videos James does, but wish he’d just lump a few of the films together in one review so as to minimize “how much of the month” they’d take up…this is, after all, a Sequel-a-thon…

  • Aaron1375

    October 5, 2013 at 10:12 pm

    So, today you wrapped up the Mummy films as it were! I enjoyed it, but I would’ve liked you to actually review the Hammer one too. That is the one I want to see the most as I always enjoy Peter Cushing and Lee.

    May I come with some corny jokes?
    “It’s falling rocks that finally Tomb him in”
    “Stay Tombed”

    Just had to. Great videos, btw. 🙂

  • October 7, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    Can’t wait for your film, James !

  • October 7, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    In the movie “Tales from the Darkside” there’s a nice mummy short story, very resembling the classic ones.

    Give it a try.

    Great reviews for the mummy series! Keep up James! That would’ve been crazy if this 1944 ”The Mummy’s Curse” movie would’ve been in color and showed off the 1990’s loud color sensation 😛

  • Ben_from_G-town

    That’s a shame about this last old Mummy movie not being that good, but it’s nice that it had some good scenes in it, at least. I also liked the quick review of the Hammer Mummy and Brendan Fraser Mummy movies. I take it that you might tackle them some day, if you haven’t already? Well, the Fraser ones might not be considered horror, so maybe not. But yeah, I enjoyed them. Cheesy fun, as you said.

    • Ben_from_G-town

      October 14, 2013 at 4:06 pm

      Oh yeah, so this movie takes place in 1995! A decade full of pogs and AOL CDs! I love it! 😀

  • October 19, 2013 at 8:45 am

    Whats up with buildings collapsing in the mummies all the time? or to shoot and drown him in the water? Its like that will stop a cursed creature like that one come back again,but it is not strange considering the fact that those films were made back in the old days when people saw those and thought what a great special efects.I still prefer more those clasic scenery than the todays cgi crap.They are more charming in the eye.
