It’s the first day of Fall! Let’s get ready to celebrate the Halloween season, with the 9th annual Monster Madness! This time, it will be another random assortment of movie reviews. Classic horror, New horror, spanning the timeline from 1925-2015. I’ll take care of lots of major league horror titles, and answer many of last year’s requests from the fans. There’s lots of coverage of Roger Corman, George Romero, and also Academy Award winning horror films. There’s a big emphasize on public domain films, as well as unscripted videos with Mike in it. This time, Monster Madness will have a presence on YouTube, for the first time since it’s original incarnation! About a dozen of the videos will be Cinemassacre.com exclusives, but for YouTube, those days will be filled in with reruns and re-edits that have never before been seen on YouTube. So wherever you’re watching, you’ll be getting 31 videos!

For now, here’s a video showing the bumpers from all the past years, as well as a guide for newcomers.

"Crazy, am I? We'll see whether I'm crazy or not." In this next installment of Logos to life, you'll see the creation of the Monster Madness Logo from original artwork to 3d print. So press play and enjoy....if you dare!

  • 2015-10-09T04:00:00Z — 57 mins

From Ridley Scott to James Cameron, and beyond, see this re-edit of all my Alien series reviews from Cinemassacre.com.

For everyone who remembers staying up late to watch horror movies on TV, this is a true re-creation of the classic TNT MonsterVision intro from 1993. Until now, the only videos of it on YouTube were of poor quality, from old VCR recordings. But now, Cinemassacre has gone through the effort of restoring the intro to its full glory.

This year's Monster Madness will be the 10th and the final marathon to include 31 movie reviews.
