    Seeing Monster Madness back brings me so much joy. You share and spread your love for cinema and it’s contagious.

    October has always been one of the best time of the year for me, even better now with Monster Madness back from the dead!

    Thank you!

    Nice to see Monster Madness back on brand new site. Also I recommend two horror movies for James. I think you would like them. Viy from 1967 its russian horror movie about priest watching over a corpse in church for 3 nights. The other one is Luz from 2018 its german movie about taxi driver that is haunted by demon the demon is her exboyfriend or something and he can change bodies. It is indie surreal movie with small cast but the acting and the visuals are very good.

    Hi Team Cinemassacre,

    I am in love since 2008 the beginning of DSL Internet with this site. And I am happy to come back from Youtube in this Skookytober October to the website. I looks very different now. Thats nice. But i am having trouble to play videos in FullHD.

    I liked this first episode. I enjoyed it. Its way more serious then the previes years. But i think this is better in this COVID time. It machtes my feelings.

    Greetings from Berlin Germany.

    Welcome back, old friend!

    I’m not only happy that the Website and Monster Madness are back.
    I am also EXTREMELY HAPPY that movie clips are back in your movie reviews.

    It just wasn’t the same, looking at your recent/resurrected reviews and having either still frames or just you sitting in a chair and talking.
    Something big was missing to make it click, to feel right.
    This is it.

    UK fan here
    I love this film SO MUCH!
    I say it’s my favourite film of all time, the look feels so grim and chilling few can be compared to.
    When I was studying film at college I wrote about 28 Days Later in comparison to others and I was able to use a camera but i accidentally taped over someone else’s work.

    I’ve been watching Monster Madness since 2007. I’m very happy with the return to the old format, puts more focus on the movie itself. Can’t wait for more! Also, I’m really digging the opening animation. Very slick.

    Leaving my comment here since Odysee is kinda weird.

    Thanks for doing this again, James & co!
    I actually HATE watching horror movies, but I like the story behind them, specially from the classic ones, and you guys make it so interesting to watch that I can’t help but marathon every monster madness every once in a while

    This just warms my soul. MM is back. Great first episode. I went out and bought a used Canon XL1 because it was used for 28 days later. It was my first camera. I used it for a feature film that I shot and released back in 2015.

  • Bryan Hochstrasser
    October 1, 2021 at 1:05 pm

    So glad Monster Madness is back to normal. All the clips from movies are great and the videos are so educational. Definitely have found some horror movies I’ve never heard of and have become my favorites

    October 1, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    Glad to be back on the website, for some reason it feels more homely to watch any of James’s content here instead of Youtube, especially when we are talking about Monster Madness. October just wasn’t the same without MM

  • Yanonick
    October 1, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    28 days later was a great film. It really had us thinking which is worst, walking or running zombies. We all know th answer to this but really a great movie.

    I haven’t been in this site in a few years. I tend to stick with your YouTube channel to make sure that your work will generate revenue from my view so I’m glad that I have a reason to come back to this site. Can’t wait for the next 30 days.

    So glad the site is back up and so glad to see Monster Madness back on the site. Can’t wait to see more videos.

    Although…correction…the zombies in 28 Days Later aren’t cannibalistic or meat-hungry. They don’t eat their victims. They just attack and spread the virus.

    Glad to see monster madness going back to it’s roots!
    And I’d like to thank you, James and all the team from cinemassacre, for the new world of horror you have showed me throughout the years!

    Been a fan since 09. Thank you so much for all the joy youve brought your fans James. I was a horror and metalhead before but i didnt truly appreciate horror and its history until the Monster Madness videos because of you i discovered Joe Bob Briggs. I swear you played a part in his return. When i talk about the great horror hosts of the past Svengoolie, Elvira, Vampira, Joe Bob, and more i include you. This is the true Monster Madness and what your fans missed so dearly just you and your love for film. Thank you and we love you James. Happy Halloween.

    Short, straight to the point and fun. I love this format and the stream quality from your page is great. You should use it more to the things that YT censors, like your shortly lived music reviews. Please do that in the future, music fans will love this. Take Care James and Cinemassacre Crew.

    28 Days Later, such a great start to this year’s Monster Madness, so happy that October is here, my favorite time of year… Christmas is nice and all, but it gets overrated considering how Walmart and other places put out their Christmas Merch around the same time, seriously getting on my nerves, let me celebrate Halloween first, assholes! fuck!

    how do you accidentally plagiarize something? admit that the “review” was half-assed and own up to your mistakes. very fitting that James doesn’t want to own up to this as well, Justin. Accountability is hard when you’re respected by many I guess

  • Samsquamsh04
    October 2, 2021 at 12:29 pm

    I mean, what kind of plagiarism are we talking about here? I don’t understand why you’re being so hard on yourselves if another employee copy and pasted from another source, and plus, how else do we learn of these things? I mean, maybe I’m just not understanding the severity of the whole thing?

  • Geo Seven
    October 2, 2021 at 1:17 pm

    Use dream eater on whoever mixed the notes in Justin!

    I hope this was the only episode that this mistake was made on so Monster Madness isn’t delayed and/or cancelled.

    Good luck to everyone working to fix this and get these released

  • Gus Webb
    October 2, 2021 at 1:27 pm

    Learning that really left me disappointed in Cinemassacre. And I’m not gonna yell at you or anything, but I do hope y’all learn from this going forward because it was wrong and unacceptable.

  • Jimbob
    October 2, 2021 at 1:49 pm

    What a huge shame about the take down. Without James doing the writing the heart is gone. These “writers” just want to finish their job and clock out. I think a lot of us would rather see 4 videos written with passion rather than 31 heartless copy and paste ones.

    Only had 334 days to come up with something original, that it’s a tight timeframe to work in.

    Hey James, love your reviews and am looking forward to watching this one. It’s kind of funny that it will probably be re-posted 28 days later than it should have been. 🙂 Still … keep up the good work!

    Mad props for recognizing the issue and addressing it. I know people are angry in the comments and as much as I hate to damage control, I think it’s totally understandable that something could slip in like that in the event of readying one of many movie reviews. We love ya, Trusty Justy <3

    Remember a couple of weeks ago when James made that video talking about some of the things people complain abou his channel? Some people said that they don’t like Screenware or whatever is called. Now i see why. He’s not even making his own videos anymore, the script, the editing, everything is done by someone else, thus shit like this happening. What a shame.

    Just happy I got to see this before this happened and kudos for taking responsibility. Can’t wait to see the rest of Monster Madness!

    I’m confused. Does James not write his own reviews anymore? How long has this been happening? I watch his videos to get his personal thoughts on the game or movie, not to hear him read off a script that was written by someone else.

    Pretty big yikes to start off MM like this.

    I probably would have enjoyed the plagiarized version. I got here too late. 🙁

    ^this guy brings up a good point. How long has this been going on? Put James behind a camera and just let him talk about a movie candidly. And if he doesn’t want to, so be it- but it’s insulting to write him a script and have him read it as if it was his own.

    So if this is a one time slip up, what happened in the Bad Taste review that got deleted …

    We’re only human. Take the time to re-group and maybe do England separate as their are some weird horror films from Wales and Scotland. ‘Under the Skin’ is a very disturbing Scottish film that flew under the radar.

    Mistakes happen, you guys have our full support! It is such an enourmous task to make 31 videos, we understand that something like that could happen. So please ignore the haters and carry on, you guys are legends!

    Dont punish Justin too hard! Maybe just have him play a few levels of Dr. J & H or Superman 64. Plagarism and fraud can be really hard to distinguish sometimes, glad yall are being dilligent and thanks for all the hard work and content!

    When you do the new recording, make sure you pronounce Cillian Murphy’s name correctly.

    Hey guys, as someone who studied film & media I know it’s just part of the game to read old reviews, books and whatever. Having different sources is not stealing. It may be a slight dissappointment to learn that James doesn’t write the scripts but on the other handside it was a bit naive to think that he does. I still looking forward to watch Monster Madness on a daily basis. Thank for the great content you have given us in all those years!

    I’ve done creative collaborations before, and I completely understand how wires get crossed and miscommunication enters the picture. We all make mistakes, and I admire you for owning up to it a pledging to do a better job in the future. I’m looking forward to the rest of Monster Madness!

    I am a college professor and I frequently encounter plagiarism in the work of my students, it is a huge problem. I appreciate that you have taken it seriously and apologized and are working to fix the situation. I just want you to know that there is a “silent majority” of watchers/viewers who enjoy your videos but do not post comments (like myself until now). I am a father like you James, and I understand the difficulty of balancing different parts of your life. I can tell that your family is very important to you. Many of the comments (the mean/rude ones) are from people who want to feel better about themselves by attacking/insulting you and the other people you work with. This makes their own pitiful lives feel a little bit better, to attack someone important/famous who they perceive to be in a moment of weakness. Try not to spend much thought on the comments that are mean and not helpful, as I think they represent a tiny portion of your actual fanbase. Most of us, I think, are happy with the work you have done and are glad to have Monster Madness back, and appreciate that you have acted correctly to deal with the plagiarism issue.

    Hey James, you’re doing things fine. Most important, you’re taking responsability to be honest about the situation and addressing us, not hiding, that speaks very well about you and your team. I just hope it doesn’t happen again because, as you may have noticed, we cherish your opinion and your insights about things.

    A lot of people are now commenting that they are not watching MM this year because it’s not entirely from your authorship. I say screw them. You wouldn’t release any content whose opinion you do not also share with your writers.

    I’ll be watching Monster Madness with great joy and enthusiasm, hoping my country (Mexico) appears in the reviews. If so, I’ll gladly comment any ideas about the film.

    BTW, I would love to see a video on Rental Reviews (if it ever comes back or whatever new movie review show you release) about WW2 films like Saving Private Ryan, A Bridge Too Far, The Longest Day, The Thin Red Line, etc. (or any Military films, actually).

    I love the podcast also, I really enjoy what you, Kieran and Justing talk about and makes me feel I’m spending time with my friends.

    One of my favorite serious horror movies of all time. I have a very vivid memory of it as I saw it all by myself when it was first released at a local drive in and it was one of the first times out of my house after my wife had passed away. Needless to say it was very hard to watch, but I can appreciate what an excellent movie it is, and thank you for bringing it to Monster Madness.

    I can’t believe you don’t mention is Danny Boyle’s, one of the best directors of the last 30 years.

    I believe the movie was shot in it’s entirety on DV.

    I’ve seen this movie once. The impression I took away from it at the time was that the picture looked like crap. It was a modern movie but looked like it was made decades prior. I didn’t know it was due to being digital video.
    For whatever reason, that rubbed me the wrong way and I didn’t get in to it. May also be that it was British and I’m not. I watched the sequel as well but remember very little of it. I think t was all military something or other? I recall it being so different from the first that it rubbed me the wrong way. I’ll have to go back and give these another viewing.
    Thanks for putting this together guys!

    It’s so surreal to keep commenting on this website on 2021. Glad you’re still doing this James, I’m here to support and enjoy Monster Madness as a costa rican fan. This one of my favorite horror movies, it has a strong socio-political commentary and athlete zombies are awfully terrifying. Second part is really cool too but kind of forced imo.

    I never considered the 28 Days Later “zombies” to be zombies. I always thought of the rage virus as being something closer to The Crazies (another Romero classic).
