    Good stuff, I hope you’ll also do some more in-depth reviews of the Hammer Mummy series in the future.

    This was the first Frankenstein movie I saw. It didn’t change my life but it does look really cool.

  • October 8, 2013 at 4:57 am

    James, what’re your thoughts on new Frankenstein movie?

  • October 8, 2013 at 5:03 am

    yeah this was the one I saw first, unfortunately. it was on demand, so I checked it out anyway since you talked about the Hammer films a while back. it was far too late in the evening and I kept dozing off. looking at your new videos, I really should of waited to see the better hammer films. and your review of this pretty much sums it up without me having to explain it. once again, great job James. if it wasn’t for your review of the Hammer films, I would never even knew they existed. and if I didn’t know that they existed, I would of missed out on some truly great & classic films.

    I now work in the town of Karlstad; also mentioned in The Horror of Dracula. I wonder if they even had a clue that it happened to be an actual city in Sweden. Non the less – great review.

    Wrestling back then must have been the real stuff.

    The most “Frankenstein” of the series? Its difficult to give an unbiased opinion on this film as a standalone having watched the last ones with such eagerness. Quite uncomfortable I would presume.

    Thank you James πŸ˜€
    That movie always reminds me of those infamous semi-remakes/semi-sequels like Evil Dead II or Rodriguez’ Desperado.
    It’s a good old Hammer movie, though, and I’m happy your review wasn’t that harsh at all!

    This was the first hammer film I ever watched. Thanks Monstervision!

    The only Hammer Frankenstein movie I saw was Frankenstein Created Woman which I liked. Looking forward to seeing James’ take on it. This one’s a nice video as always :-). Gives you something to look forward to, every day.

    A movie bound together by clichΓ©s, plots and scenes from other movies? Believe I fully understand why James would consider this the most “Frankenstein” of the series…

    I hope you review the Friday the 13th movies this year. You did the nightmare on elm street and Halloween movies 2 years ago and this year i hope you do texas Chainsaw massacre and Friday the 13th movies. I know you’ve already reviewed the first three Chainsaw massacre movies in previous Monster Madness Octobers but there are four other movies in the series like remakes or whatever so I hope you review these movies this year if not, next year along with all of the Friday the 13th movies including the remake. Thank you πŸ™‚ P.S in a recent episode of monster madness you mentioned The friday the 13th movies…hope this was a hint of things to come πŸ™‚

      James said he won’t be doing the Friday the 13th films since they’d take up too much of the month…however, as you mentioned, he had no problem spending half the month on Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street sequels…

      If he would do 2 movies in one review, he could do all the Friday the 13th films in one week…

      But instead, this year’s Sequel-a-thon, is nothing but Hammer-a-thon…kind of more tedious and repetitive than one week of Friday the 13th films…

      Keep up the good work though James!

      • October 8, 2013 at 11:40 am

        Are you quite sure you even know what you’re talking about? He has covered the UNIVERSAL Mummy films, and now is covering the HAMMER Frankenstein movies, which, sorry to say, are far more interesting than the bloated and overlong slasher Jason movies. You could certainly just spend your time complaining about what he’s not doing, or you could possibly try just enjoying what he does do, since it is his show after all.

      • October 8, 2013 at 12:03 pm

        I don’t see why reviewing all the Friday the 13th movies would be any less tedious and repetitive than reviewing anything else.

      • y2j420

        October 8, 2013 at 12:50 pm

        Or, Devil_Rising, I could just come on his board and try to spam people with links to other reviews that have nothing to do with James…

        I was responding to a question someone had asked about Friday the 13th films…obviously there are a lot of people wanting James to review those films…go back to your craphole of a website where maybe 10 people (your parents included) check it out on a monthly basis…

      • y2j420

        October 8, 2013 at 12:51 pm

        I agree Robert Hopkins, but James apparently views things differently…his site…his show…his reviews…even if his reasoning behind not doing them is flawed…

        Keep up the good work James!

      • October 9, 2013 at 12:03 am

        Actually, Y2J420, I was not agreeing with you.

        You were saying that reviewing all the Friday the 13th movies would somehow be more interesting and less tedious than reviewing Universal’s Mummy movies. and Hammer’s Frankenstein movies. I was saying that I don’t get why Reviewing Friday the 13th would be any more or less interesting to you, other than you simply like those movies more.

      • October 9, 2013 at 12:16 am

        I wouldn’t be too excited for Friday the 13th reviews anyway. There’s really not much to say about them.

        They don’t need any more exposure anyway.

        Besides, I want James to talk about the stuff that really interests him. That makes for quality videos. He shouldn’t have to review something he doesn’t have much interest in to appease fans.

      • y2j420

        October 9, 2013 at 8:00 am

        Either way, Robert Hopkins, I’m right…if, like you said, he should do things that interest him, and he chooses not to do Friday the 13th, then that means those films don’t interest him…

        However, James’ reason for not doing them (would take up too much of the month) is incorrect and flawed…as he dedicated a 1/2 a month to Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street sequels…

    great review again, this years Monster Madness has probably been my favorite. Can’t wait for… Frankenstein Created Woman!!(Lightning Strikes)

  • October 8, 2013 at 11:38 am

    Great review James! Monster Madness, rocking as always.

    For anyone who remembers the NES classic Monster Party, check out the Halloween celebration also happening over at Retro Revelations:

    Awesome job so far James!

    Ah, I’m so mad that they ended the Frankenstein series and rebooted it! I really liked that series that Hammer started, and wanted to know what the doctor had up his sleeve next. I liked the idea that they treated the doctor as the monster and not his creature, I found that very interesting, new and unique. I wished they continued their original series and not rebooted it in this one, lol.

    • y2j420

      October 8, 2013 at 9:21 pm

      UNfortunately he won’t be…he said it would take up too much of the month to do them all…despite James doing all of the Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street sequels during the first Sequel-a-thon which took up half the month…

    Sounds like this movie was “Frankestein’ed” from the pieces of other movies! HAHAHAHAHA oh my sides

    That had to be disappointing to see this movie if you were expecting it to pick up where the last one left off.

  • October 9, 2013 at 12:47 am

    I like the setting of this film a lot. I like how Hammer changed up the setting each time to keep things interesting. It’s fun to see Frankenstein on the run and trying to sneak in his experiments where ever he’s hiding out.
    The film does lack the trademark Hammer cleverness, but makes up to it with a nice homage to the old Universal Frankenstein tropes.
    A big thing that keeps me from loving this film is that Frankenstein has too many whiny “why don’t they leave me alone!?” moments. Really? He can’t understand why? Has he lost touch with society that much? The other films in the Hammer series gives Frankenstein a much more interesting “Fu** society’s morals!” attitude.

    ”(priests) They always destroy everything!”. classic. Lol, the movie does seem very disappointing, but like you said, the sets look great though

    Fantastic. I actually haven’t seen any of them, this seems like good place to start.

  • Ben_from_G-town

    That’s a shame that they rebooted the series like that. I was hoping for a sequel to say what happened next after the last one! Movie does seem fun and the “most Frankenstien”, though, so there’s that! πŸ˜›

    Freddie Francis = Fred Fuchs? xD
