      Dude, you do know you’re on the internet, right? They have entire websites dedicated to porn. This is not one of them though. Go be desperate and pervy somewhere else.

  • Don Skiver

    September 23, 2014 at 6:33 am

    Alright!! Fuck yes! I can’t fucking wait this year for Monster Madness! Kind of a grab bag theme..but that’s okay! Can’t always reach into the Devil’s asshole and shit.

    Happy Autumnal Equinox, James! We’re diving into the best time of the year!!

    September 23, 2014 at 8:17 am

    As if October isn’t exciting enough, looking forward to this every year just makes it more exciting. Considering this promo looks like it cost a lot, I can only imagine what’s gonna happen. So let’s start counting down! It’s almost time, for Cinemassacre’s, MONSTER MADNESS!!!!

  • Griff

  • September 23, 2014 at 10:04 am

  • Goobian

    September 23, 2014 at 10:43 am

    I have been really looking forward to it this year. This last couple of weeks I have been thinking is a Monster Madness video up today? No it starts in October.

  • September 23, 2014 at 10:56 am

    Shouldn’t it be called a Century-a-thon? You know, since you talk about horror stuff trough out a century? ๐Ÿ˜€

  • y2j420

    September 23, 2014 at 11:00 am

    Super excited for the chance that, finally, Friday the 13th series will get its long, overdue Monster Madness treatment…oh and ONCE BITTEN starring Jim Carrey as well…

  • luconator

    September 23, 2014 at 11:12 am

    After 8 years this has become more than a tradition, I wouldn’t dare go without it! Thank you James for another Awesome October!

  • September 23, 2014 at 11:36 am


  • September 23, 2014 at 11:46 am

    I didn’t give a damn about old monster movies. Then Monster Madness came along. I’m still not really a fan of them but now I’ll actually sit through one should the opportunity arise. Thanks for the insight and the entertainment James!

  • Tullerman

    September 23, 2014 at 11:53 am

    Newer movies too? I pray that Trick or Treat is in tere (not the one from the 80’s), people really need to know how fucking awesome that one is, it’s my favorite Halloween movie by far, often times watch it twice every halloween, one time twice the same day lol.

    • Lukas Sprehn

      September 23, 2014 at 2:23 pm

      You mean “Trick r Treat”? That movie was awesome!!! I hope to see Ginger Snaps too. Maybe the sequel as well ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Joker83

    September 23, 2014 at 12:26 pm

  • September 23, 2014 at 2:18 pm

  • Forsythia

    September 23, 2014 at 2:25 pm

    Oh yeah, I’m ready!

  • September 23, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    “We’re spanning a hundred years of horror films, from 1922-2012.”

    This made me giggle a bit. Silly James: That’s 90 years.

  • September 23, 2014 at 2:49 pm

    I am so excited! This is what I love most about Cinemassacre. The film reviews are what make me love this site. Thank You James/Mike and crew!

  • September 23, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    Yes i tougth James wouldn’t do one this year beeing vey buisy

  • Dylan Spallin

    September 23, 2014 at 4:57 pm

    The most awesome month of the year is almost upon us, can’t wait to get Monster Madness all over again! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Satnav

    September 23, 2014 at 5:57 pm


    I’m worried James might soon start to run out of movies, but I guess if he needs to he can move to reviewing whole TV series, episode by episode. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • September 23, 2014 at 6:02 pm

      There’s no shortage of horror movies.

      • September 30, 2014 at 12:07 pm

        Instead of reviewing episode by episode how about a whole season?

  • Jeron

    September 23, 2014 at 6:10 pm

    Yay! I love monster madness!

  • Erich Granzer

    September 23, 2014 at 6:31 pm

    So excited. I love Monster Madness. I’m glad they found time to do it this year.

  • TheFrodo

    September 23, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    I hope he does a Manos: The Hands Of Fate review.

  • GameCom

    September 23, 2014 at 7:14 pm


  • September 23, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    I love the randomness. So we have no idea what to expect.

  • DrZaius

    September 23, 2014 at 7:57 pm

    Anything goes this time?

    Review a scary video game! Like, I don’t know… Amnesia or Outlast or something.

    Or review Garfield’s Halloween special!

  • Eddie Mesa

    September 23, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    Finally!!!!!! Its here!! Always look forward to this every year.

  • September 23, 2014 at 9:57 pm

    That time of year again, you know since 2007 this guy has really brought that nostalgic feeling back to my home. i recently saw the avgn movie lol pretty fun, but monstermdness is my favorite of any of his videos. they are the shit. keep it up rolf.

  • Carson Hearne

    September 23, 2014 at 10:40 pm

    Next year do Stephen King-a-thon and review Stephen King horror movies

  • Hank Foreman

    September 23, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    I hope the Haunting gets a review from you! Which version, you ask? Hopefully both of them! I saw the original 1963 Robert Wise film on Turner Classic Movies once. It’s my favorite psychological horror film. Less said about the 1999 Jan de Bont remake, the better. Never saw it, though the Nostalgia Critic’s review of this garbage is hilarious! I’m interested to see what you think of both of them!

  • Haseo55

    September 23, 2014 at 11:01 pm

    I have always enjoy them, though to be ones the one from the 3rd romero dead series kinda freak me out with the voice cord thing. Also i was kinda expecting predator since you did Alien.

    You know i still recomend those mexican B movies with the actor Capulina in which 3 are actually moster based, but since you may not know spanish or the movies may not be subed i can guess you wont apreciat them and that they are comedy.

    Anyway good luck with this years James

  • September 23, 2014 at 11:31 pm

    Thank you very much for this. The last few years have been a depressing struggle. Monster Madness is the one thing I can look forward to. No offense, but Monster Madness might be your true calling. Just don’t dress up like Count Floyd.

  • BladeRunner

    September 23, 2014 at 11:56 pm

    I love this time of the year!

  • September 24, 2014 at 12:11 am

    September 24, 2014 at 12:36 am

    OMGOMG!!!! IT FUCKING MM TIME AGAIN!!! My favorite web series hands-fucking-down. Don’t get me wrong, AVGN is the best, but horror movies are my favorite thing!
    Time to go and watch all the other MM years to get caught up. I still think the 80’s-A-Thon had the best music/intro period.

  • September 24, 2014 at 2:26 am

    yeeesss!!! The best month of the year is about to start

  • September 25, 2014 at 11:30 am

    literally look forward to this all year. love the nerd but monster madness trumps all. the everything theme is great, maybe some hammer mummy, 80s slasher shit, munsters? I’m more exicted than I have been anything. I like the once every other day tho, my only concern is every day is a lot.

  • September 25, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    It may be a little late to ask but on the 2011 sequel a thon (halloween: curse of michael myers) what is that movie in the intro where the guy’s eyeballs explode?

  • September 25, 2014 at 3:57 pm

    What was the movie called with the woman holding the candle called at the beginning.

  • mason saltalamachea

    September 25, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    Well if you are covering a century of horror movies then I would call it, “Monster Madness: Centurathon”

  • September 26, 2014 at 4:20 am

    Completely and totally fine with being without a theme and a grab bag of whatever Halloween stuff you like.
    I always look forward to Monster Madness.

  • Sam Wood

    September 26, 2014 at 5:22 pm

  • PresidentJenkins

    September 26, 2014 at 6:32 pm

    Yeah! Monster Madness! The highlight of my year! I was kinda hoping for another Sequel-a-thon (Child’s Play, Friday 13th and Hellraiser perhaps) but a random free for all is good too, Can’t wait!

  • Sinz86IROCblk

    September 29, 2014 at 12:31 am

    I still enjoy Halloween very much but this series always takes me back to how I used to enjoy Halloween as a kid. Thanks James and everyone else who has contributed for keeping this going.

    I missed this year’s monster madness due to getting a new house and not having internet so I’m looking forward to going through this. I was looking at the titles and trying to figure the theme, then I watched this and go, “Yep, it does seem very random.”

  • Don Skiver

    August 24, 2015 at 6:06 pm

    It’s not even September yet here in 2015, and I already can’t fucking wait for this year’s monster madness! I fucking live for this every year; it’s my favorite cinemassacre event! I wonder what the theme will be this year? Or maybe there won’t be a theme at all! I can’t wait! ๐Ÿ˜€
