  • Great video, Looked like James was wrangling kittens there for a minute. But it is really nice to see people really talk about what they love, even if it might be of topic.

  • I just love all of Joe Lynch’s work and to see dead meat and him just talk nearly two hours about the horror is just magnificent

  • Dead Meat Podcast...oh and James is there too 😂 but for real I kept having to check my phone whilst listening to this to check if James had just gotten up and walked off since he is definitely the third wheel here lmao

  • It's funny. Wrong Turn 2 was actually one of my first horror movies. It really kind of set me up for disaster because I expected all horror movies to surprise me and subvert all of the normal tropes. I will always have a special place in my heart for this movie

  • Joe Lynch is like Quentin Tarantino's long lost brother or something. The way they both like gore and are passionate about film they actually could be distant brothers or cousins.

  • Hey, James! You should do a resident alien kill count because even though the trailers make it look like a comedy it has SOME horror and kills.

  • I adore these interview episodes when it's like, Chelsea and James just absolutely having a blast shooting the shit with these people whose content they enjoy. This one's got the bonus of Joe liking the Kill Count videos, too, like. The mutual appreciation for each other's work is wonderful!

    Mist-heartMist-heart21 degi síðan síðan
  • I've recently gotten into your podcast and realising that I should watch the movies instead of only your kill count (or other summaries like ending explained) has me gotten into the genre so much. As someone that had a big interest in filmmaking in his teens it's very refreshing to see a subgenre that is filled with inovaters. Thanks James & Chelsea

  • Mayhem was the worst movie I saw in years! Lack of love to details, connection errors in so many scenes, the make up was even worse and full of errors. Sorry, just watch Belko Experiment again before watching this pile of lackluster trash. I´m so tired of this film, I´ll copy paste my german amazon review, to save me some time: Hier geht's um Gewalt - und das ist gut so. Aber: weniger Liebe kann man in einen solchen Film nicht stecken. Ohne über das Budget Bescheid zu wissen, wirkt der Film sehr günstig produziert: billiges Kunstblut, schlechtes Make-Up, ein unglaublich schlechtes Color Grading und ein Schnitt, der versucht aus den mies choreographierten Kämpfen irgendetwas halbwegs Actionreiches herauszuholen. Dafür, dass der Film ab 18 ist, gibt es keinen nennenswerten Gore. Zudem trotzt der Film nur so von Anschluss-Fehlern: fehlendes Make-Up und deplazierte Requisiten zeigen, wie wenig bei der Produktion achtgegeben wurde. Dies wird vor allem im letzten Showdown klar. Kleines Beispiel: der Boss reibt sich Koks durch's Gesicht. Drei Schnitte später ist es verschwunden. Nächstes Beispiel: der Protagonist steigt Blut überströmt aus dem Fahrstuhl, dabei hat er keine sichtbare Wunde. Er setzt sich an den Tisch und das Blut ist komplett anders verteilt. Zudem sind die Dialoge komplett vorhersehbar und unterirdisch geschrieben. Wenn doch laut Prämisse des Films alle unzurechnungsfähig sind: wie kann der Boss einen ordentlichen Arbeitsvertrag anbieten? Logik-Fehler in jedem Dialog. Kurz gesagt: der Film ist zu lieblos für Trash. Wer seine Rache-am-Boss-Fantasien sehen möchte, der ist bei "das Belko-Experiment" deutlich besser aufgehoben. Hier gibt's zumindest Gore.
