    Why is there a fart noise when you intoduce Jekyll and Hyde?

    • October 4, 2016 at 3:43 am

      Number 2?

        I thought that could be it. Also, to clarify, I’m referring to the ’30s movie, not anticipating at the time what the ’40s number 2 would be! But, it’s not like the sound isn’t obvious.

      I almost missed that. That’s hilarious. It must be a nod to the NES game.

      This means I’m not hearing things, right?

    • October 11, 2016 at 11:17 am

      I’m so glad you mentioned that, I thought I must have imagined it!

    Even though I don’t like horror movies, I like your videos about them. Anything you make is insanely well crafted. The only thing that bothers (and confuses) me is how you keep making typos such as “1930’s” (instead of “1930s”) or “DVD’s” (instead of “DVDs”). It seems so oddly out of place.

    Funny thing, I saw a dozen of times Young Frankenstein before the original movie and I thought that a lot of the funny/silly things came from the parody when they were actually in the real thing… to my surprise lol

    Another great video! I love Monster Madness! TCM should really hire you, James, to host when they show these classic horror films!

    GREAT VIDEO! I love the longer, detailed videos. Feels like I’m watching a documentary. Great work.

  • October 4, 2016 at 10:30 am

    With 4 Tuesdays, I was expecting that you’d round them up to a top 4 or something at the end.

  • October 4, 2016 at 11:56 am

    wonderful James, thankyou. i love the classic horror era

    Thoughtful list, and I really agree with your argument for King Kong being the best movie. It’s definitely something to be argued about. And I think it says a lot about horror as a genre that it is so influential in costume, design, production, editing, and writing in film more generally.

    Ever seen Monster Brawl, you talk about having the classic monsters fighting each other, this has them all fighting each other in a dam ring.

    Oh James I luv you! You got Frankenstein and my all time favorite, Bride of Frankenstein on the list. I love how you split up the 30s and 40s era of golden age! I love these lists!

    Haha, “number 2….pfffff” Good one!!!

  • October 21, 2016 at 4:11 pm

    Hey James,
    I noticed that you mentioned that “The Mummy” doesn’t have a literary source, and while it’s true that it’s not a direct adaptation of any one novel, there are a number of striking narrative similarities between it and H. Rider Haggard’s imperial era adventure novel, “She: a History of Adventure” that might be worth noting, as well as all the carried-over plot points from the previous year’s “Dracula”.

  • October 28, 2016 at 7:02 pm

    The 1940’s in my opnion was not a great decade for horror

    The golden age, for me, is definitely the 80’s
