      and on top of that they got the friggin Swamp Thing and reboot Jason actor

      I wonder why David Dastmalchian or Derrick Mears, who were with Matthew, weren't acknowledged by Chelsea? I thought it was funny that Derrick Mears stuck true to his Jason Voorhees role, and just sat in the background, not saying a word.

      @Dead Meat Hi James, love your work. Would you consider doing a kill count for the recently released Cocaine Bear?

    So happy Mia Goth finally got recognized for her work on Pearl. That monologue alone should have won her an oscar.

      Just a Shame Horror Movies are never acknowledged by the academy

      @Jonathan McCullough not never, but it’s extremely rare since the ‘70s.

      -Roxie The Darkangel- Month ago +3

      The fact that they managed to capture the 70s so well proves they were trying with X and Pearl it just captures the environment and Mia Goth was just amazing for her performance

    the memorial for everyone we lost in the last year was so classy and well done, you wouldn't get this same treatment from other award shows, rest in peace to everyone we've lost

      @ZeeJohansen I had no idea about Paul Sorvino. REPO played a part of my high school years so to hear that Rotti Largo's actor actually passed away hurt my heart.

    Tom Savini, Matthew Lillard, Kate Siegel and Mike Flanagan? That should tell everyone how much of a horror juggernaut you guys are. What an incredible Award Show this was. Thank you, you've made this horror fan incredibly happy.

    What a wonderful “In Memoriam” section. Every time I’m reminded that Leslie Jordan is gone, it just makes me so sad.

  • Maverick Cortez

    Love how Ghostface started the video out for us. The line fits well with this contest so much. "What's your favourite scary movie?"

    two ghostfaces presenting this amazing award show amongst other guests? brilliant. just brilliant. james and chelsea have amazing dedication as always, and i think we're all thankful for their commitment to honouring these films when the entertainment industry at large has slept on them
    Edit: for next year i think an amazing idea would be something like best horror soundtrack, as music/scores are not given enough credit for their emotions in a movie and pearl's main titles were bloody phenomenal

  • Kampffeire
    Kampffeire 2 months ago +110

    Mike Flanagan and Kate Siegel are just so amazing. I love how enthusiastic they are for the horror genre, how kind and generous they are with their time and thoughts. And how outstandingly talented they both are

      -Roxie The Darkangel- Month ago +3

      2022 and 2023 have been the peak of horror with some of the best coming from the producers directors and the actors effort they put into these movies. I really have high hopes for horror this year that's why I've always been a huge fan of the horror franchise

    This is way classier than the Oscars. It’s nice when the hosts don’t mock the movies like they do for some reason at the mainstream awards. They take it seriously while also having fun which I really like.

    • Jimmy Z

      @Sergio Ribeiro lol that's the only reason why people still watch the oscars, to see the comedian host.

      I’m sure the Oscars began as a classy affair that took itself seriously. It just succumbed to the inevitable evolution of success.

    Thank you Chelsea and James (both looking GORGEOUS in Magenta and Maroon) for giving us a better award show than the Oscars last week 👀
    I’ll never forgive The Academy for constantly snubbing horror and not even nominating Toni Collette for Hereditary. If the Prime Ribs existed in 2018, I’m sure y’all would have given her the flowers she deserved for that performance…
    I’ll see you both on the Pod and the Kill Count 💖

    • Lance Shivers

      Honestly, this is what being a true fan is. We all consider the Dead Meat crew family (i hope) and it does sadden me to see this. I’d rather not get content for a few months than see James be hurt and down in the dumps.

    • Michael Trainum
      Michael Trainum 2 months ago +9

      It is baffling to me! The Oscar's choose these movies that are general SH** and somehow believe they are worthy of all these awards...look at what is involved in just the make up for horror movies. All they work so hard and for such little recognition...thank God for people like Dead Meat channel.

    • TheDevil's Rockstxr
      TheDevil's Rockstxr 2 months ago +4

      ​​@Michael Trainum bruh I love horror but it is the least challenging kind of movie to make....I think it's a handful of horror movies tht deserve awards....but the genre for the most part isn't up there....the only straight up snub is Toni Collete, anything else is debatable and again it's like 10 horror movies tht deserve it at all...like yall can like this without being a Stan

    • Michael Trainum
      Michael Trainum 2 months ago +3

      ​@TheDevil's Rockstxr I absolutely agree with you. There are tons of horror movies, as a whole, that will never be recognized because they are garbage😂. But a lot of even bad horror movies have amazing make up, digital affects and many other icon parts to them. But yes I do agree..as a whole most horror movies will never receive anything.

      LUIGIII 2 months ago +5

      @TheDevil's Rockstxr the least challenging kind of movie to make is Slice of Life tbh

    So many thoughts on this. First, I want to congratulate the Dead Meat team for another exceptional video. The production value is outstanding on this channel.
    I loved seeing all of the presenters for these awards. It's great to see just how much of an impact Dead Meat has had on the horror industry and the friends you've made along the way. My favorite was Derek Mears in the background being silent. It had to have been difficult with Matthew and David being, well, Matthew and David. 😂😂 I mean, Matthew and Matthew. 😂😂
    The In Memoriam had me in tears. We've lost some absolute legends in the last couple years. RIP to all and continued prayers to their families and fans.
    Congrats, again, to the Dead Meat team. Much love to you guys! 🥰

    By far my favorite awards show. This was so well done. Other award shows should take note, because The Dead Meat Horror Awards does what should be done when awarding something. This made me appreciate the genre even more, got me interested in the nominees so I actually rooted for some to win and has me excited for what's to come in the future, both in terms of movies and more award shows.

    Maybe you guys could do a website and have fans vote like for the streamer awards. The Hosts votes counted for like 30% compared to the fans 70%. I really liked this video and could tell you guys put a lot of work into it. Great job! And yes, I do have a favorite scary movie, Mr. creepy Ghostface voice lol its a toss up between Sinister and Hellraiser (1987).

    Thank you James and Chelsie! You really bring horror to life, and I wouldn’t be as invested in the genre if it weren’t for you guys! I loved horror but this made me really see it differently more, how artistic and creative it can be! I get asked a lot why I love such a dark and horrifying genre, and sometimes I’m made fun of for it, but this video brought me comfort in what I love. Thank you so much James and Chelsie! I’m so grateful God placed your amazing channel in my life! Thanks so much

      Crazy to think I've been watching dead meat for that fucking long. I joined the channel in the early days during the original friday the 13th killcounts which truly ignited my love of horror. I owe so much of my taste in movies to this channel. Long live Dead Meat!!!

    This video was amazing!! The absolute dedication James, Chelsea and the whole dead meat crew have is incredible and I cannot wait for your big projects you have to come along with the kill counts of course. Also I saw that "in memory of" for James' dad at the end there and if that means he's passed away then I am absolutely sure he was so proud of his son, he's done so much with what started as a little youtube channel and will go down as one of the greats.

    Guys, I just want to say, you really outdid yourselves. Everything, EVERYTHING about this year's awards is executed to the highest level of skill. From the graphics, to the setting, to the guests. It's absolutely incredible. I'm so proud of you guys and everyone who had anything to do with the awards this year. Absolutely incredible.

    Thanks for giving me a chance to catch up on movies I hadn’t seen and giving me a list to check out! You guys put so much thought into the choices for nominations and acutely decided on some amazingly deserving winners. Thanks James and Chelsea, and all the Dead Meat staff! You’ve outdone yourselves and I can’t wait to see next year’s results!

    The whole show was such an extravaganza. The hosts rocked through all of it. The 'In Memoriam' was a touching segment. I can't thank Dead Meat enough for helping me celebrate this amazing horror genre.

    James and Chelsea are now synonymous to the horror genre. Imagine if I was a kid growing up at this time, being shaped by their channel. Gosh I'd be over the moon. I was in LA a few years back for the premiere of Doctor Sleep, I bumped into them both at the afterparty and was freaking the eff out, even more than when I met the cast of the film. Such sweethearts in real life too. We must protect them at all costs.

      My friend's daughter has that joy. Her mom and I bonded over horror and when I showed her dead meat she immediately started watching with her kid. It's fantastic to see.

    Excellent production. The award show is, once again, a banger of a show. Great job! Congrats to the nominees and the Dead Meat team. You're making an excellent job at proving Horror is one of the best, yet complicated, genres out there

    I usually don't watch award shows because they usually feel rigged. But watching you guys grow for the last 4 years and conversing with other horror fans, I gotta be tuned in. I hope yall eventually get a location where yall can hand an audience cause I'll be there

    I love dead meat and have been watching for years, I can’t wait to watch the horror awards in person one day 👀 I feel like Dead Meat could go so far and honestly shape a new lens for horror. As a fan who has loved horror since I was 3 (yes three) I’m so happy to be present during this time in horror!

    I love this channel and will always be a fan. It was the 1st Patreon that I joined. It is still to this day the only notification I have on YT. With that said, It hurt me to see Podcast movies reviewed to get more attention and acclaimed than the over 100+ horror movies to be released in 2022. James and Chelsea are two of my favorite online personas. Watch everything on this channel, first and foremost. Icons in Horror. The industry recognizes this and I am very happy to see success when it is due. I mean over 6,000,000 subs cannot be wrong. To imagine over 6m people are on board with such a taboo thing as horror. My critique of the amazing 2023 Dead Meat Horror Awards is to open up passed two voting members, there is too much bias.

    Thank you so much for all your work on this, so fun! I personally wish they were more people’s choice overall but I love this, the only awards show I watch. Smile and The Menu were my favorites of the year and I was bummed they won nothing but I was honestly shocked that Sosie and Anya weren’t up for best actor. I know you can’t include them all but Sosie especially stood out to me. She had an amazing transition from a kind, caring therapist to someone who was clearly terrified. I was so surprised by her performance and hope she’s in more horror!

    The In Memoriam section moved me to tears. Horror is so often belittled or considered less than other genres, but all these people helped create something, created art, and that's important. Dead Meat treats horror movies and the people working on them with respect, which I am very thankful for. Thank you, and well done to everyone who worked on this video, always a pleasure to watch!

  • -Roxie The Darkangel-

    James and Chelsea, Thank you for acknowledging horror
    There are so many masterpieces of horror movies and 2022 was horror at its best. Nope, X, Pearl, Prey, Fresh and many others took so much work and dedication thanks to the actors, directors, and producers hard work. I literally got chills when I saw Allies death in Terrifier 2. You really spend so much of your time appreciating horror for the masterpieces they are and I just love and appreciate the work you put in for it.
    I myself really want to become a horror producer and director I have had this horror movie idea for a long time and I want to study more into it.

  • Geefbird
    Geefbird 2 months ago +2

    So happy for you both to be excelling into higher production value, I hope to someday see Horror Awards of all types on a grander scale, the level at which they are being done now almost perfectly embodies the nature of horror though. It isn't always high budget, it can be whimsical and light, it is all about love and passion, and even on a low budget we can make magic happen that will change you forever.
    All of that said, I think Mike needs his own award... that intro montage was one of the greatest things I have ever seen. Seriously that was incredible.

    Being Finnish I was really happy to see some appreciation for Pahanhautoja, because I loved it and it was a great piece of Finnish cinema, which usually doesn't get recognition outside of Finland, so it was great to see it even getting a mention. I love the work you do for the community and the appreciation you have for all the people making these movies possible.

    • Liam

      Are there movies you would recommend for someone wanting to dip a toe into Finnish cinema? I’ve been wanting to see Pahanhautoja since stumbling across the trailer, but I’m wondering what else is out there!

    • JermuHH

      @Liam Is it any specific genre or anything? I can drop some recommendations of some of my favorite Finnish movies. Overall I don't think there are really that many horror movies, but tell any genre you are interested in and I can give you some recommendations!

    Holy crap Devon Sawa! I always thought he was cute when I was younger and he certainly grew up to be a fine looking man.
    MATTHEW LILLARD? OK. I'm done. This is awesome. Y'all really did kick things up a notch. I'm not even finished and I'm already looking forward to how next year goes.

    Before I say anything else, let me just say that I love this channel and what you guys do for horror. Can’t wait for what you have in store for the next awards show!!!
    Now while I was a tiny bit upset about Sosie Bacon not being nominated for “Best Lead Actor”, I 100% agree with Mia Goth being the winner. Watched “Pearl” twice and loved that monologue scene; and the fact that she wrote it…🤌🏽

    Hey, for deaths I think you might have missed Jeff Barnaby (or maybe I missed it in the list), director, writer, and editor of Blood Quantum, a Canadian movie you covered on kill out. he died of cancer October 13, 2022. I know it's hard to catch them all, I just wanted to give him a shout out since you covered a movie he was so involved with on the count. Also, amazing guests this is really becoming something special!

      @Dead Meat no problem but thank you for your response! I know it must be nearly impossible to catch everyone who passes in horror, especially internationally. Btw, your channel introduced me to his work, so while I wouldn't have long to show my appreciation as a fan while he was still with us, that time I did have was thanks to the Kill Count
