Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde: MOVIE TRAILER

James / November 24th, 2015

The classic tale of horror comes to vivid life in this cinematic adaptation of the NES video game. See Dr. Jekyll fight off enemies in hazardous 19th century London. See Mr. Hyde battle demons with his deadly psycho wave! Which will triumph? Good or evil?


It’s just a trailer. Not an actual movie. A one-time spoof. Not endorsed by the 80’s video game, or Robert Louis Stevenson’s corpse.


This was a fun secret project that I planned for years. The first scene was shot in December 2014 (The pub). The majority was shot this past Summer 2015. The effects shots and post-production was in the Fall.

And hear more of Derek’s work at:


The post-effects for the Hyde scenes was done by Rainfall Films, who just made an amazing Metroid short film. See it here!


The pyro/explosion shots were done by Andrés Borghi, who made some awesome films of his own such as:
Alexia (Horror short)
Contra film

    Awesome work!

    November 24, 2015 at 10:02 am

    Haha, this was hilarious!
    The amount of work that must have gone into this is obvious. Well done guys!
    PS I didn’t even notice Doug among the extras, guess I’ll just have to watch it again. XD

    • November 24, 2015 at 1:47 pm

      Yes he’s in there, hard to find though.
      If you need a pointer, hes about as long in the movie as James. 🙂

        Easter eggs? That’s the sign of a great and thoughtful work. I didn’t notice any of those guys. (An excuse to watch it again.)

      Doug is the guy with the rifle who shot the bird out of the sky. James is the grave digger who flings dirt into Jekyll’s face.

    Holy shit! This may be my favorite thing Cinemassacre has ever done, and that is saying a lot.

    That was amazing and also unexpected. Bravo!

  • The Kaleidoscopic God

    November 24, 2015 at 11:32 am

    Well, that was unexpected. And hilarious.

  • Bryce Neuner

    November 24, 2015 at 12:05 pm

    The production for this trailer is amazing! I can see a lot of thought went into this passion project. Using the AVGN quotes from the episode was classic and pretty funny to see all these crazy hazards acted out in real life. Great job James and to all that contributed.

    November 24, 2015 at 12:10 pm

    O_O Name the cost! I wanna see it done. =P

    November 24, 2015 at 12:42 pm

    I’m pretty sure that is James throwing the dirt at 3:57

  • call me squinky

    November 24, 2015 at 12:54 pm

    Truly brilliant. The sucking into the explosion was hilarious. A Cinemassacre #1.

  • November 24, 2015 at 1:16 pm

    Fucking brilliant, hats off.

  • Uncle Sporkums

    November 24, 2015 at 1:35 pm

    WOW, James! When you said you had something special planned, you weren’t kidding! OUTSTANDING and hilarious! Congrats to all involved!

  • November 24, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    Now I wish this really was a movie you where going to make!

  • November 24, 2015 at 1:56 pm

    Very funny.
    Looks like lots of work.
    But worth it.
    Well at least for me, as I dind’t had to put work into it 🙂
    But I guess James finds his work just as rewarding.
    He should, it’s realy astonishing what such a small group of people can accomplish.

    P.S. The Jakyll/Hyde actor reminds me of a young Christoph Waltz.
    (Anyone else?)

  • Joker83

    November 24, 2015 at 2:08 pm

    YES!!! This was wonderful, James! You are the man

  • greedo

    November 24, 2015 at 2:56 pm

    Hilarious! Great job. But if there’s one thing I’d do differently, here, I’d have Dr. Jekyll say, “Why is everyone out to get me”?

    Anyway, small quibble. Well done!

  • November 24, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    hey isn’t that Jeremy Jhans in the crowd?

  • Legato32x

    November 24, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    Awesome job you guys! Way to make something hilarious out of a game so shitty. You guys could very well start a whole series where you do a trailer for a lot of the shitty games you’ve covered. Excellent job you guys! 😀

  • November 24, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    Lol, spot on. Good work.

  • November 24, 2015 at 4:25 pm

    Amazing! Hope there will also be a movie tie-in! ;-p
    PS. I’m still laughing for the line “He’s a slow walker”.

  • Jimmy Reed

    November 24, 2015 at 4:58 pm

    This is amazing! Very well done! I loved how funny it was and how you guys all got in the video together. I obviously know where Kevin Finn was, but I think James was shoveling the dirt, Doug was shooting the bird and Stephanie was the woman with the umbrella. But I didn’t see Bootsy or Mike. I’ll have to watch it again!

  • November 24, 2015 at 5:03 pm

    So Kyle is a set designer now?

    That was Fucking Awesome!!!!!!!!!

  • JayRam

    November 24, 2015 at 5:28 pm

    Man, I wish this trailer was for a real movie: Kevin Finn leading a pack of angry, drunk Irishmen, determined to having Dr. Jekyll killed, is too hilarious, and should not be contained only within a 4-minute faux trailer.

  • Entrenaturaleza

    November 24, 2015 at 5:33 pm

    Shut up and take my money!

  • FullMetalHobbit

    November 24, 2015 at 5:45 pm

    Thats absolutely brilliant. Well done guys! Laughed so hard i farted and some shit came out!

  • November 24, 2015 at 5:47 pm

    Amazing work guys, I hope you could make it happen

  • November 24, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    Very cool JAMES and crew! Would love to see more of this style of production. Would watch a full fan-film of this with donations! If it’s free could you use all the likeness’?

  • David Knowles

    November 24, 2015 at 7:01 pm

    Boom comedy gold once again man if you guys do this once a year for New Years it would be a bloody awesome tradition

  • November 24, 2015 at 7:04 pm

    Overall I thought it was pretty good. But oh fuck, the explosion? That fuckin’ KILLED ME!

  • Don Skiver

    November 24, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    That was…a LOT of fun! Thanks for making this trailer for us, I thoroughly enjoyed it. 😀

    PS: If you actually did make a real short film/feature film based on what I saw in this trailer, I’d pay to see it/help crowdfund it.

  • November 24, 2015 at 7:53 pm

    was that the voice of honest movie trailers guy?

  • Jarno Poikonen

    November 24, 2015 at 7:57 pm

    I’m laughing so hard my lungs hurt. Oh my fucking god, I have to see more. With this movie, Fred Fuchs might become treated as a hero for future generations. +1 for Kevin Finn, +1 for the music. Where did you find Mr.Jekyl, he seems a perfect fit for the role. Holy shit. I’m buying this. Where’s the movie? Get it done!

  • Erwinator

    November 24, 2015 at 8:11 pm

    I enjoyed it a lot too! : D

    How about Hong Kong 1997?

  • bud

    November 24, 2015 at 8:50 pm

    Oh, I’m on page 7. That means you’ll never read this.

    Just want to say this is probably your best work ever. Extremely well-done.

  • November 24, 2015 at 9:34 pm

    Man I can’t look at the cinematography. Movie and gags are fun and everything, but just the way the movie looks is such a letdown I can’t force myself not to express this right away.
    As I understand the visuals in general (light & compositing) suit the style as they reflect the cheeziness of the script, it still make me want to see that differently, and I’m more than sure you guys are technically capable otherwise I wouldnt spend any word on that.
    I hope this comes friendly I’m a HUGE fan of your works .

    • November 24, 2015 at 9:40 pm

      Also what’s with the tripod shots & handheld cut together? I started watching wondering what’s shifting in between was for, no idea but just annoying

  • Smeghead420

    November 24, 2015 at 11:43 pm

    OMG yes! Its kinda like a satire on what would a game look like if it were real. How outrageous would this be in real life. This looks hilarious.

  • November 24, 2015 at 11:50 pm

    Cinemassacre went back to it’s roots je-je it reminds me of That wizard of Oz animation and Munky Jeez

    Oh man, ohmanohmanohman.
    I’ve watched this trailer like 6 times and it’s still hilarious. I laughed until I cried and then I cried some more. That was genius…pure fucking genius. I really appreciate the detail of having Jekyll covered in bomb ash and bird shit. Awesome job by everyone involved, thank you!

  • November 25, 2015 at 1:36 am

    That was fuckin’ hilarious, James. Forget just doing a trailer. Make this your next movie! I’d watch it for sure! 🙂

  • Lastor

    November 25, 2015 at 11:43 am

    Not only is this funny as all hell, but actually works as a really witty mini-review of the game itself! Hits all the major absurdities and moments to criticize in this indirect way. Sheer fun and creativity!

    ROFL. man james must of truly been pissed off at this game

  • November 25, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    James Rolfe, you’re a genius for making this, lol. I love when the bombs explode and he gets pulled TOWARDS them, just like in the video game, lol.

  • November 25, 2015 at 7:31 pm

    Fantastic! Love how many the gags from the AVGN episodes were included. Looking forward to the AVGN vol 9 dvd.

  • IronJustice

    November 25, 2015 at 9:50 pm

    This NEEDS to be a real film. It’s comedy gold! 2 1/2 hours of Jekyll being beaten up by everyone and appearing at the church bruised, bloodied and covered in everything from shit, dirt, bee stings and shrapnel from the mad bomber’s bombs.

    Pretty funny, but I thought it could have had something more than parody. I don’t know, maybe the actual movie will tell. Good work!

  • December 2, 2015 at 10:47 pm

    Aw man, I was going to do something like this! Except mine would have been a traditionally animated movie. Oh well, I guess I’ll stick with my game idea of Jekyll and Hyde’s Excellent Adventure (Jekyll and Hyde (NES) combined with Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure (NES)).

  • December 6, 2015 at 11:11 pm

    This should be James’ next movie 🙂
