    Is it better for you guys for us to watch Monster Madness on this site, or on YouTube?

      I’d imagine Cinemassacre since it’s their own site rather than YouTube which is a 3rd party

      In this particular case, on Cinemassacre.com you’re just looking at an embedded YouTube video, so I don’t see how it should matter. But more hits for Cinemassacre is a good thing regardless.

      I imagine on cinemassacre since James will get ad revenue from the youtube video regardless, and ad revenue from his site as well.

      James, have you read the Swamp Thing comics? Specifically the Alan Moore version? It’s fucking amazing. Rather than Swamp Thing being a man turned into a monster, Alan Moore reverses it and has a monster who thinks he’s a man. It’s awesome. You have to check it out sometime.

      I think they still get YouTube viewing credit if you watch it here.

    Saw this a few months back, i was kind of dissapointed. I did not expect it to be a meisterwerk or anything but it felt like a big “meeeh”.

    That is the way things go… a lot of movies James has covored in the last 10 years, I haven’t seen, nor heard of. Getting into these movies, now is harder, since I will watch them with an adult mind. So coincidally, when talking about movies that changed your perspective and felt really scary when you were young, THIS is one of those movies I saw as a teen. It scared me a bit, especially the burning scene. Now it gets the ‘cheese but watchable’ treatment, in a 2 minutes+ video, as a footnote in a big pile of monster madness/horror movie reviews. Kinda sad for me, but understandable. Would I have been the maker of a movie review series, a lot of masterpieces might have gotten the same treatment from me. It is always a matter of opinions and experiences.

    I LOVED that movie! It was really different and marginal. I was really touched with that ‘Everything seems like a dream.. when we are alone’. Lots of memorable scenes too.

      I always felt like the end battle had inspired a lot Zelda. I mean, a potion that transforms you into what your heart reflects, which happens to be a ginger boar-like demon with a sword?

    It’s very cheesy and it’s not a very good portrait of the “Swamp Thing”.

    But it’s so damn ’90! It’s time-contested shit!

    Fuck that person who complained about the nudity to Blockbuster Video.

    Can you review Angel Heart (1987)?

    I thought you covered this movie before? Anyways when I was a kid this movie kind of scared me. When they turned into monsters I was like omg. I did like this movie though cause it was a classic to me. I got the unrated one on VHS I think. I remember when I was a teen I would of course do the nude scene in slow motion over and over. haha That girl had a great body and great set of tits.

    James mentioned the comic book, but he didn’t mention the live action series or the cartoon series.

    One of my earliest memories of seeing tits in a movie was of Adrienne’s bountiful bosom in this. (I was about four or five years old)

    I remember vaguely this movie I was so young …. needed to see it back…. good review !

    This got me thinking… You should release a Cinemassacre/Monster Madness line of films. It would be great! If the Wu-Tang Clan could do it, why not you?
