The Host (South Korea, 2006) - Episode 2
Great start! Glad to be watching MM on the Cinemassacre site again.
Halloween is back baby!
It feels so great to watch a new Monster Madness in the old style! Looking forward to the rest of the month!
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!
I’m an old fan and it feels so great to watch Monster Madness back on Cinemassacre ! A lot of love from France !
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.
Thanks so much for keeping all of us horror hounds feed and happy! Long love the Nerd!
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.
This is ABSOLUTELY worth going to another site instead of YouTube James, keep up the good work!
That was awesome, looking forward to the rest of the month now
Great start to October! James and crew, great job! Very enjoyable.
well done. feels like the old days.
So glad we 31 days of Monster Madness,great review James.
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.
So glad we have Monster Madness back!
Thank God for this website and for James. This is a real treat and a great way to start the Halloween season.
This is a Great review James… honestly I much prefer the website to the YouTube and this is the first time in years where I feel like I’m getting that true Cinemassacre experience the way I used to
What a perfect start to the Halloween season. Digging the return to the classic Monster Madness format!
Thank you for making Monster Madness again.
You doing these on your website again really takes me back.
October is alive again, thank you James.
Love James and I love Monster Madness!
can’t wait to see the other videos for MM
And what an amazing OST this movie has.
Great start for Monster Madness 2021.
Man I’m so happy MM is back!
Glad to be back for another Monster Madness!
Great review, great movie – I’m so excited for more Monster Madness!
Amazing review, James. 28 Days Later is one of my favorite zombie movies.
Oh the nostalgia of your opening “It’s Cinnemassacre’s MONSTER Madness!”
Monster Madness is back, baby!
Oops now I’m binging the previous MM since they’re right there.
Great Review! Very thorough and precise! Might have to give this one a rewatch as its been a few years
Halloween has started!
The only thing missing from this movie is rain
Soooooo hyped for this
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
My god, watching Monster Madness on the website, leaving a comment–it feels like 2009 again.
I got to see this movie for free for a advanced screening. Its still a great film.
Kick-fucking-Ass. stocked Monster Madness is back
Wow! Amazing video. The production, script and editing is top notch. Excited for the rest of this month’s series.
I never watched this movie but I remember it. It’s a bit to close to home at the moment to watch but I’ll 100% add it to my list.
Yesss, cinemassacre is BACK on my bookmarks toolbar.
whoa dude. I didn’t even set up a avatar yet and I ended up with Bubbles. That’s creeepy weird.
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.
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
What a great start of the month! Really brings me back!
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
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’m so glad this is back!!! Awesome James!!!
Man, it’s good to have uncensored Monster Madness back. I can’t wait
Man well done dood. This feels just like the old days. Halloween is here baby!!
Such a treat to have Monster Madness with movie clips instead of stilt images.
Yeah baby, classic MOnster madness!
It’s good to be back from the grave!
Yeah! Monster Madness! Fuck YouTube!
Love that the old format is back. Great start!
Man what a great way to start up this new monster’s madness. Can’t wait for tomorrow.
WOOOO SPOOKY SEASON IS A MTHAFKN GO
If your gonna cover another UK horror film….
I recommend threads……it’s terrifying as hell
Thank you for resurrecting Monster Madness
So glad to have a proper cinemassacre website, and so happy this series is back!
What’s the main music in this episode?
YES! So happy its back!
Great to see monster madness on the site again!
Peace from Norway
The music of the scene you talked about is made by Godspeed you! Emperor.
Good job James! Super pumped for the next 30 days!
It’s great to have the website back! Long live Monster Madness!
Eyyy great to be back on the site!
Thank fuck it’s back!
This is gonna be a good month.
i always remember the beginning scene when he’s grabbing all the money lol
Good insights, and great commentary, James. Can I say I’m so damn psyched that we’re getting Monster Madness again this year?!
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.
Halloween season baby and that means monster madness. I love this series and can’t wait to see the rest this around the world concept sounds exciting
Oh yeahr …. Its back …its baaack
Not really into gaming but I love your movie reviews and podcasts. Let the horror and the barbarity begin!
Revolutionary movie for sure. And athmospheric too.
i vote you re-rename YKWBS to its original name and just post them here (along with everything else): no copyright or content restrictions, you control the ad content–it’s a win-win!
This is has made my October a lot better
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.
So glad this is back! You don’t know what this means to so many of us.
Glad to see MM return!
What an incredible start this year, if all the videos are this good we are looking at one of the best Monster Madnesses yet. Also man is it weird to be using the site again.
My balls are blasted into the stratosphere! October just became even more awesome!
HAPPY MONSTER MADNESS !!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOHOOOOO, Nice to see this content back up on the OG WEBSITE, you all rock, keep up the great content and lots of love
Hell yeah! We are back, baby! Just like Dracula before us, we’ll always be back for more at the slightest drop of blood! And what a better way to start than one of the best modern zombie flicks?
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!
Can’t wait to see what we will get next!
A loyal fan from Brazil sends you his regards!
Seeing monster madness back on the site gets me jacked to the tits! Revamp looks fucking awesome! This is gonna be a great November!
This is absolutely the best. This show was what initially got me into horror films back when I was in middle school. It’s incredible to have it back again and I will be here daily to watch!
This is amazing! Monster Madness is back and it’s just as great as ever!
Great work looking forward to future videos
So happy to see this classic series back in full force!
I never thought that this would actually come back. Are used to watch monster madness all the time throughout my school career, i know so much about film because of it
I’ve never heard of this movie until now, thank you James and Cinemassacre!!
I’m so fucking happy I could cry, we’re back lads. It’s so comfy
Monster Madness has been a consistent Halloween tradition, re watching the whole series every October since I was 8 years old. I’m 22 now XD
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.
The Halloween season truly is here.
Great review of 28 Days Later.
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.
Monster Madness is the best series ever
This was a great episode!
Highly enjoyed it.
It is one of my favorite movies.
Every year I watch Monster Madness.
For real, keep it up, guys!
Great to see the website up again!
Great to see Monster Madness. Back!
I am so happy this is back!
Gotta love the return of the classic style, great work! Hopping to see a mexican horror film next
what else can i say, the all time classic series is back!
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!
Great start to Monster Madness! Love the class fast-paced format – great editing and commentary. And awesome to be back on the old website.
I Love horror and always loved these series!
Monster Madness 2021. Let’s go, baby!
Thank you for bringing Monster Madness back. I got to watch and learn the history of so many great movies.
Absolutely excellent! Man these intro’s over the years are so cool. Monster Madness has become one of my favorite October traditions =). Thanks a lot for keeping it going and I’m more than happy to come to the website instead of YouTube to watch.
VIVA MONSTER MADNESS!
So glad to not be on YouTube! THANK YOU JAMES!
Way to go! We’re home.
I really missed Monster Madness. It’s great to have it back !!
I would happily ditch YouTube in a heartbeat if you decided to upload here, I miss this site.
Walking Dead had your inspirations
fingers crossed that the website doesn’t crash
Damn, that’s incredibly disappointing. This was not “accidental” and that excuse makes no sense. I would think a proper apology is coming up soon.
OMG. I love monster madness! So grateful this is back, even if James doesn’t have time to write his own scripts. I can relate to this, I have kids of my own! Keep up the good work!
Video has been taken down. Not off to a great start. :/
Please don’t delete this comment. I love everything James does! Go cinemassacre go!
I’m begging you. Don’t delete this comment!
Why can’t you put this on YouTube? I started watching Monster Madness on this site back in the day but times have changed. It’s too much of a hassle and I can’t watch it on my TV as easy as YT……
Ok. I’m kinda mad because dish the get to see it. Will there be a replacement episode 1? Will MM2021 be delayed? Will their be more MM2021 vids later? I
When will the video be fixed? I kina want to watch it. I fell mad because I didn’t get to watch the video yesterday. Will it be soon? Like tomorrow?
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
The song during the abandoned city scene is called East Hastings by Godspeed You! Black Emperor
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?
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
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.
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.
Firts that guy Mike and now this??? booooooo
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
woooooow, what a lame fuck up!!!!!!!!! next time take your dick out your ass and let james do this shit like is supposed to happen instead of copy pasting someone elses review silverdick
Wow so many assholes on here. Go fuck yerselves with a barstool.
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.
there’s a lot of people here who need to get off their high-horses >.>
Justin, slip-ups happen. Carry on – all you guys do is so great!
I salute your bravery to move this out of the Youtube!
All the best!
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.
Hey, mistakes happen. To be fair, I never would have even noticed. It’s all good, dude.
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.
Did wonder why it was delayed but makes sense now. Goes to show your professionalism to address the issue straight away and directly! Things happen, life goes on, no one died! i am sure all bridges are mended!
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.
OMG. Cillian really is pronounced like “Killian”.
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.
These videos of yours are always what brighten me up every October and i’m glad that you have brought them back.
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.
Its back, baby. Dont be too hard on yourselves. Theres plenty of people on the internet to do that for you.
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).
