    Great review James you picked really good one, but as an Israeli myself I noticed at the beginning with the globe you hilighted the area of Sinai as well as Israel. That area belongs to Egypt, but understandable mistake since it used to be under Israeli military control. Anyways thanks for the review!!

    “All it needs is some closeups of women’s feet.”

    [Immediately cuts to a scene with a closeup of a woman’s feet.]

    I got a laugh out of that. XD

    James ,

    I have a suggestion:

    Could you do a review of Bone Tomahawk ,
    It is a western genre movie , but it really is a horror movie .
    And i loved it , the same director also made Cell Block 99 which is also sort of a horror dark themed crime movie

    It’s great to see my little country in Monster Madness.
    One more small info:
    Quentin Tarantino married an Israeli woman (she played the Italian woman in Once Upon a Time) and is now living in Israel.

    Hi James, another Israeli here, just wanted to say how I enjoy your work for some time now, an avid ‘Cinemmassacre’ fan, who watched all of ‘Monster Madness’ of coure.

    Your review to this film was pretty good, the comparsion to Terantino was pretty nice and someting that I haven’t thought to myself before, tough I see it now.
    However, I think the review was a little luckluster since it didn’t include the background of horror films in the country, which in Israel case is, well, pretty nonexistant.
    Yep, we do have movies for various genres, from comedy to darma to war, crime etc., but in horror, for some reason, we only have this one and the previous film of the same director. which are both can be define as dark comedy thrillers then horror anyway.

    And lastly, that “Strange figure’ you mentioned is an Arab, and is supposed to represnt the problematic and clunky relationship between the Israelies and the Arabs. But it understandable why you didn’t get that, as you don’t live here.

    Still, graet review, an awesome ‘Monster madness’, and alongside the AVGN and the new podcasts this channel is as good as it ever was, keep up the good work!

    This looks like a great movie to watch, not a fan of dogs getting injured though 🙁

    This movie and Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners were out in the theaters around the same time in Israel, and to this day I wonder whether it was a coincidence or not, because the premise of both is almost identical.

    Anti-Raphael might as well have called himself Anti-Semite.

    Wow thank’s for bringing back monster madness. It really gets you in the mood for Halloween. Although we don’t really celebrate Halloween here in Sweden. I think it’s a great tradition!

    Since these kinds of movies qualify, I’d recommend Man Bites Dog from 1992 for the Belgium episode.

    A twisted dark comedy mock documentary of a psycho killing people.

    An Israeli brought it up in the comments, but yeah, that stranger is supposed to be an Arab (also likely Muslim, if I had to guess) and would likely be a symbol of the awkward relationship between Israelis and Arabs historically.

    Him saying “Peace be upon you,” was what hinted me off, but maybe that’s just me.

    Not Israeli or Arab, just a white guy in America that sponges info on religion like I’m dehydrated
