    This a great song that really captures the spirit of cinemassacre, saying do what you believe.

    Hey James, I have a two questions I hope you can answer. 1. Will we ever see a regular return of the AVGN show, like once a month like before, or are you retiring the character after the movie is put out on DVD/Blue-Ray? It’s okay, whatever you decide. I just thought I’d ask out of curiosity. 2. Will there be a Monster Madness this October with an AVGN Halloween special? If so I’d love to see you review the Splatter House series, Mutant League series, or Zombies Ate My Neighbors.

      James have said many times, including at the world premiere, that he is not going to retire the characters, and that he will keep making episodes, but the also said that they will not be as frequent now. I don’t know how frequent “not as frequent” is though… we’ll have to wait and see.

    Holy shit i can’t believe that you guys used some of my shaky crowd footage and audio!!! I am so honored to have a very tiny part in a Cinemassacre production! You can check out my view of the pre and post movie festivities at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgENuE-hQOQ …… again thank you so much for using those snippets from my video. Its hard to explain the feeling I got when I saw and heard pieces of a project I produced being utilized by the ones who inspired me to start making videos in the first place. By including those few seconds into a Cinemassacre production you have provided me with such a sense of validation that I can aspire to do bigger and better things and not be afraid to invest myself in future endeavors, because I already made it into a Nerd Video.
