Wonderful October series of quick but very well done vignette style reviews on horror movies - makes my Halloween!
UPDATE: Terribly sorry that James felt he'd done all he could with this series and that it had run its course, but it was a hell of a great show, and long live Monster Madness!! I really grew to love this series and I enjoy it every year. All the fun of the Angry Nerd character aside, I find James Rolfe's love for horror flicks as genuine and inspiring as his love of video games. Rolfe has an excellent voice and casual attitude for this kind of narrating work and is very easy and fun to listen to, and he pitches his thoughts and synopsis on each film in an enjoyable and frequently funny way. This show has gone through a few interesting phases, there was the Universal Monsters and Godzilla ones, the 80-a-thon, which did not actually have a video for every day of October but that was fine when these guys had other better stuff in the works. I love season 8, which was really well balanced and made me want to seek out and watch Haxan, which turned out to be the only silent movie that I've loved to date. And now in the last series he and Mike Matei have done episodes where they've discussed a movie in person, which I didn't care for as it doesn't work the same without the clips and everything, and they also did two episodes that weren't about movies at all but were about what makes horror what it is, and what the best way to celebrate Halloween is for them, and I can't complain, it's all in the spirit of horror and there's always more films... And regardless to me, Cinemassacre's Monster Madness is a hugely fun annual series to watch that is informative and entertaining and I'd definitely recommend checking it out if you're a horror movie fan. A s##t-ton of ass-balls it most certainly is not!! Thank you for all the great fun content over the years James. :)
