    I just want you and everyone on the dead meat team to know that we appreciate how hard you worked to get this video out
  • @saifsufian4286
    I love how all the other kid's calls are super ominous and scary, but Robins's call is heartfelt and encouraging, it gives that moment so much impact.

    “The brother he’s been staying with has been moon-knighting as the grabber “ Nice touch. Ethan Hawke was recently the main villain in Moon Knight for those who don’t know

    The scene where finn and Robin meet again teared me up so badly. I know it isn’t even real.. but it’s just way too depressing to watch friends that would never meet again :((
  • @Korsi_
    Really nice to see Ethan Hawke asking "are you ok?" at the end of takes to ensure the well being of the kids he's working with.
  • @TellItAnimated
    Amazing, The Black Phone was awesome watching in the theater earlier this year, I loved Sinister so had high hopes for this one, and I was not disappointed :)
  • I adore this movie and the plot behind it. The idea of the past victims helping Finney/being protagonists instead of the typical angry evil spirits harming innocent people was really nice for me. Seeing the kids do their best to make sure another kid doesn’t die is really emotional. The last phone call with Robin killed me.
  • @billzjr222
    Tbh this was the best killer movie I've seen in a long time. The killer actually gets killed by his own victim in a cool fashion. Fkn awesome.
  • @Alcarazboy11
    “It’s not about you. FUCK HIM!!!!!!”
    That shot gave me chills man. Filmed so beautifully.
  • This movie is simple yet terrifying and emotional. One of my top three favorite horror movies.
  • @christafollano800
    I LOVED this movie. It focuses on the victims lives instead of the killer, which is super unique and in my opinion the right way to go. It then also opens up the possibility of a prequel, should they want to, showing why the grabber is who he is, the first kill, etc. Just amazing story telling all around.
  • @andrewcastro5905
    It's super awesome that zoran is handing the reins off to James and teaching him how to do the kill count, really showing how good of a mentor he is to James.
  • This was a really good movie and the Grabber would've never got caught or killed if it wasn't for the siblings having their Mother's Gift and the brother getting captured to solve this missing children murder mystery plus this movie had that The Lovely Bones vibe 👍✌.
  • @gerntlole
    The end when the kid says Finn has a great arm hit way harder than I thought
  • @Sokarox
    I absolutely hate how some people pretty much harassed Ethan Hawk because of his role in this film. Such a gentle man, he didn’t deserve any of that drama.
  • @Kohtix
    Can we appreciate Zoran’s funny inputs in the sponsorship segments?
  • The way the dad explains the mothers dreams sound very much like schizophrenia and can explain why the father is worried it’s inherited
  • @thephony1651
    I love how Zoran disguised himself as Mrs. Janisse even though he was just on the phone 💀
  • @queenturk3y642
    It's usually hard for me to have my heartstrings pulled while watching movies (I can only think of like two movies that have genuinely made me cry), but watching Gwen be abused by her dad was absolutely HEARTWRENCHING to watch. Phenomenal acting all around. I was so excited to see Dead Meat cover this! Thank you guys for working so hard to appreciate this movie the way it was meant to be. :)
