    Besides the movie, this is the best cinemassacre’s work! You guys did it so well donne. I got scared, amused and laughed a lot!

    Well, you all already know how much we fans love all of cinemassacre’s productions, and specially Board James series! This is so so awesome! Please bring more of these kind of commentary too!

    Hugs from Brazil!

      I loved how you did this commentary with 2 windows so we could see you. I hope to see some new Board James episodes soon!

      Almost correct. Board James IS the best of Cinemassacre’s work! Now I have to go binge on every episode again. If only there were more..

      Also, when is the Board James movie coming out?

    The “DREAM PHONE!” line reminded me of Freddy Krueger, appropriate considering it’s a DREAM phone.

      this immediately reminded me of wes craven’s scream. that voice and the style of that voice and the phone being so important. great work here and bootsy’s 80’s rendition of a pop song was awesome. it’s available to listen to in full on youtube.

    I love these behind the scenes. I learn so much after watching each and every one of these.

    Oh and the chick that sang the dreamphone song (Bootsy’s friend Samantha) sounds hot 😛

  • March 18, 2015 at 8:27 pm

    gone too far in a few places

  • March 18, 2015 at 10:18 pm

    James, when is the Board James DVD going to be back in stock? I really want to buy it but I can’t find it anywhere?

  • March 18, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    im gonna be that cynical dude who points out how masturbatory these videos are

  • March 19, 2015 at 1:18 am

    How about James & Bootsy monday series? Comeon!!!

    Great vid! Only, you didn’t really answer the one question at the end that I was hoping you guys would answer: Where does the Board James series go from here?

    These commentaries are great! Very much looking forward to more Board James

    Always fun to see something like that where you guys get to explain more details of how and why you made the video this way. Great jobs guys!

  • March 19, 2015 at 3:51 am

    Great work, James. This episode makes a terrific short film.

  • March 19, 2015 at 4:00 am

    Mother fuckin’ B-B-B-Bootsy! Bootsy needs his own goddamned fucking sonsabitchin show.

    Thanks, guys! Watching your videos reminds me of how great it was being a kid of the late 80’s and early 90’s. PLEASE, DO NOT STOP making these awesome videos!

    I wouldn’t have guessed it was Bootsy doing the voice of the phone. That was an interesting commentary. I hope to see where you take this series to.

    I know you keep saying there are more Board James epsiodes coming but are these recent videos hinting that there could be a new one soon? I hope so as each one has just gotten better and as someone who used to have a whole shit load of board games growing up i can think of so many that would be awesome to see you do.

    This is one masterpiece Cinemassacre! It was funny and scary! This and Mr Bucket. Thanks for your work Cinemassacre. Allways fun with new stuff =)

  • March 20, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    I thought this was awesome! Great job guys

    Was this ever released in Europe? Seems like quite a fun blast into the 80’s. And I’m all into this “which guy likes you” mode more than the potential murder mystery one, as a 37yo hetero guy. <3

    Many thanks for this commentary 🙂 ive hope gonna return to Board Jamnes again, i like that spin off videos just like You Know What’s Bullshit!?

    PS BTW, James did Pat can post his viewers/fans own videos about games? or because im planing make own video games review but when upload to YouTube ive guess no body give a try to watch my hard work, i dont wanna make my videos for ghost viewers because dont bring profit.

    I honestly thought you guys just used the jingle from the original commercial. Like seriously bootsy did a great job with the song

  • March 21, 2015 at 6:38 am

    That thing with the batteries taken out happened to me! When I was 14, I was awoken to intense sharp static like noises that came in an out, that almost sounded like inconsistent high powered shocks of electricity were going through the speakers of my sisters old tape player/radio hybrid, but it didn’t have any batteries in it and wasn’t plugged in. I was in-shock scared and put the bed cover over my eyes, then closed my eyes and tried to ignore it, until somehow i fell asleep eventually. When i woke up the noise had stopped.

  • March 21, 2015 at 8:36 pm

    Hi James, you should make more “Board James” videos n.n I loved them and you really manage to take us back to the time when we were kids or teens.

    I find this show funnier than AVGN (which is tremendously good), but I have seen all of your Board James videos several times each one, and I would really like to see more =)

    Great work as always.

    Nice commentary. I completely forgot about Board James acting all crazy at the end, haha.

    HOLY FUCK!!!! I don’t think I’ve seen this before. This is absolutely fantastic. The mood, atmosphere. Reminds of either of the Halloweens (Carpenter’s and Zombie’s). Creepy, especially when you’re near the window.

    Speaking about Phone Movies you could’ve used for the movie on the TV, you could’ve used Scream. That would’ve been perfect.

    I feel like it was a missed opportunity not to mention Chris Evans (captain America) was a character in dream phone.

    You just made me buy Lucy by Bootsy Spankins, P.I. (I’d already bought Dream Phone). I hope you’re happy Cinemassacre!

    It’s been a year since I last saw it. I can’t remember if Dreamphone was the funniest video you ever made, or the best April Fool’s video I ever saw. Either way….

  • Trepidity

    Definitely one of the best. I hope for more bootsy he is a great addition to the family. My favorite with Mike is still crossfire. You’re toilet!

    You guys are really smart! Nice Photoshop editing with the knife! Can’t even see anything!

    OMG OMG OMG When 8:54 comes on the Letters minus the RED L spell DEVILS!!! James is holding hands with devils NOT his friends resurrected! “Devil Mike” as I will call him here, is who voices the bucket. He called James Jim, as if somehow disconnected from James like he doesn’t know him like Motherfucker Mike would. “Devil Bootsy” is the voice of the phone. This was no accident. When Bootsy and Mike are telling him everything is okay, they were obviously up to something. They may have trapped him somehow but that’s just speculation. James quoted dozens off Necronomicon like spells (and some from it) who knows what spirits he invoked I’d like to think that this is the same kid who was haunted by Snix and that all these years later he’s returned and is haunting him again in new forms, or maybe these are Snix’s lackeys, and more will come who knows. Either way James will not like his new friends nor does he really like his old ones.
    James may also be hallucinating like in the speculating post and this may further prove his theory as well so definitely keep an open mind when reading this.
    Side note, did anyone else notice when BJ is putting away his Dream Phone game, who else noticed the poster “You have now crossed over into THE TWILIGHT ZONE”. This is an obvious easter egg, but maybe, just maybe there’s a LOT more to it. James is a clever film maker and will not hesitate to add old film nuances like hidden plot elements in clear sight. The only thing is why IS there an extra “L” thrown into the mix. I Finally made my Cinemassacre account JUST so I can post this. Been watching for years this stuff is the best!
