Horror Movie-Themed ‘Dead Meat Podcast’ Turns 1!
  |  @   |  

Horror fans have it good these days, as new content and analysis is available at the click of a button. A few years ago, James A. Janisse started the Dead Meat YouTube channel quickly building a strong audience with the Kill Count series: videos breaking down horror films and franchises, sometimes scene by scene and enumerating the deaths.

Janisse’s weekly videos quickly became viral sensations and he currently sits with an incredibly impressive 2.3 million subscribers. The success of the Kill Count series allowed him and his girlfriend/collaborator Chelsea Rebecca to branch out and create more content, including crossovers with Crypt TV, fan convention/travel videos, and interviews with horror icons. One year ago last week they started their own Dead Meat podcast available both on YouTube and Soundcloud.

It’s 49 episodes in and the Dead Meat Podcast is a joy for horror fans. The simple reason why is because Janisse and Rebecca are real horror fans, and they study up on their topics, especially Rebecca, who often comes prepared with a college course load of reading material.

Whether you are looking for an analysis of a recent horror film or a deep dive into the history of the genre, the Dead Meat podcast is 60+ minutes of entertainment. They cover trending horror films like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch and also under-seen or hidden gems (hello Red Eye and Cry_Wolf fans).

But my favorite episodes are the deep dives. They recently killed it with a retrospective of the career of John Carpenter with guest Chauncey K. Robinson. They’ve explored and analyzed old tropes, such as treatment of Native Americans in Horror with Joey Clift. Their recent podcast released the other day covers childhood fears from non-horror movies. And they make sure to have fun, dedicating entire podcasts to trivia contests and games.

James A. Janisse and Chelsea Rebecca are horror fans offering copious amounts of horror content on YouTube. You can follow both on Twitter at @DeadMeatJames and @carebecc and visit the Dead Meat YouTube channel to subscribe.
