Interested in murder? Fascinated by guts and gore? Ever watched a horror film and wondered how many deaths they managed to rack up in an hour or two? Well, the YouTube channel Dead Meat has the series perfect for this: the KILL COUNT. Host James A. Janisse brings in light comedy to commentate all sorts of horror films as he “tally up the victims in all our favourite horror movies”. Janisse gives a rundown of the film and how it begins and incorporates extra behind the scenes footage and facts about how the films were made.
These episodes are a great watch to introduce you to films you haven’t heard of before or if you don’t want to spend your time watching a horror movie that may or may not be good, or totally bonkers like Evil Bong – and yes this movie has 3 following sequels and is about a sentient bong that captures souls of those who smoke from it and traps them in The Bong World. So if this sounds like something you’re into, no judge, go ahead and watch it; but if you’re just mildly intrigued in what crazy shenanigans of a movie this is without spending almost 1 and a half hours on it, the Kill Count is the way to go.
The Kill Count finishes off with the kills tallied and a Golden Chainsaw award is given for coolest kill and a Dull Machete for the lamest kill.
8/10: Let’s get to the kills!
