YMS: Best Underrated Horror Films

So, you guys have been waiting for that Saw review,
and let me tell you, it’s coming November 2nd. Woo! And I might’ve had a video like this out sooner, except I
dislocated my fucking knee while I was busy being a faggot. Fucking great. Now it’s healed to the point where I can bend my knee
a little and sit at my desk and do vocal recordings, like I’m doing right now. Anyway, Halloween’s coming up and you probably
need some decent horror movies to watch, right? If you feel up to it, you could always trust what the
advertisements say about what movies in theaters will be good. What was that? What was that? Come on and French me, boys. Maybe you could even catch up on some
of the shit that was released last year. Oh, great! A prequel to an awesome movie
that was praised for its creature effects. Let’s just throw in a bunch of
shitty CG. Now it’s really scary. Why is it too big to fit through that hole? Why don’t you just rip off part of your
body that would fit through the hole, like you did rip off your arm earlier
when you were pretending to be that guy. There’s no reason why should be able to fit, just rip
part of your body off, we’ve seen you do it before. Oh, no! The creature that can reanimate itself
into any sort of shape dimension can’t reach her. There is literally no reason why it
shouldn’t be killing her right now. Fuck you! [woman 1] And Lars has fillings.
[woman 2] So he’s human. It can’t imitate inorganic material. [YMS] So when it eats people, does it just
chew really carefully around the clothes? Where are their clothes from? Why don’t you just conduct the test based on who
was wearing different clothes earlier in the day? Where did The Thing get clothes? Maybe all their shirts were organic? Haa… Anyway, I know you guys already know about
the original version of The Thing from 1982, and a bunch of other good horror movies, so here’s my list of what I would call underrated horror movies that I think you guys should check out. In no particular order. Try to keep in mind that these are horror movies, so these are
bound to have more flaws than the movies I usually recommend. They’re horror movies. Enough said. Starting off this list is a South Korean monster
movie called The Host from the director of Mother. This movie’s definitely action-packed, but like Mother,
somehow it’s able to throw in intentional comedy, and it still works together as a whole. The computer animation’s a little dated, but the excellent tracking and lighting makes it so
that the creature has a real presence in the film. It’s an awesome monster movie: it’s fun to watch
and you get to see people die. Go see it. Next is a movie called May by Lucky McKee. It’s sad,
it’s funny, it’s well acted, and it’s twisted as fuck. Try not to search up any trailers for this one,
because so far the ones I’ve seen just spoil it, and I don’t really want to spoil it either,
so just take my word for it, you bitch. What are you doing tonight? Hello? [man on phone] Why? I was just thinking that maybe we
could get together and do something… [man] I have friends. Oh. QUIET! [man] Who are you talking to? What about tomorrow night? [man] Maybe. Maybe. OK. Well, what time? I’ll wait. [man] Don’t do that. No, no, no. It’s OK. I’ll wait. [man] I gotta go, May. OK. I’ll talk to you tomorrow, then. [man] Goodbye, May. Next up is VHS, and please don’t watch the whole movie. Well I mean, you can, but don’t watch it and
pretend like I recommended the whole movie. It’s a 2012 horror anthology movie where each
segment is done in first-person perspective. So, yeah. More of the found footage bullshit,
but one of the segments actually works very well So I’m recommending a segment from
the movie and not the actual movie. And that segment is Amateur Night by David Bruckner. It’s only 20 minutes long so I can’t
even really say much about it. Let’s just say that the fact that the camera is on his glasses makes
it much more immersive than the standard found footage movie. You don’t have to constantly ask why he’s bothering to hold a
camera instead of run away, you just get to see him run away. And this segment is fucking terrifying. [man] What? [unintelligible] [man] I have no idea what you’re saying. Thanks, Ange. Hey, you want to meet some people over there? I like you. [man] Cool, I like you too. So, do you ever come here? With Warren. I like YOU. [man] Ah, OK. Jesus, fuck. What the fuck are you doing? What’s up, guys? Next is the cult film They Live by John Carpenter. Despite the cheesy soundtrack and the fact that
the main character is played by a pro wrestler, the social and political commentary
in this movie are amazing. The concept’s so good: now Republican logic finally make sense when you
pass them off as aliens trying to take over the planet. It’s an entertaining movie that makes some great
statements on society for anybody paying attention, and I bet you didn’t know this line didn’t
originally come from Duke Nukem either: I have come here to chew bubble gum, and kick ass. And I’m all out of bubble gum. [YMS] Go see it. Next up is Pandorum. Although it didn’t show up in my Best Movies
of 2009 list, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. This is what happens when you mix Resident
Evil and The Descent with Dead Space. Yeah, there’s some cheesy cliché
moments, and Dennis Quaid’s in it, but the unanswered questions and unravelling story
combined with Ben Foster’s fantastic performance make this movie more than watchable. Although this film does take ideas from
other movies, the final product stays original. Check it out. Hey, listen. I get it. What? You did what you had to do. You made
it, so no-one’s gonna judge you. No-one’s gonna judge you. You are a survivor. And right now, we have to reset the reactor. How long before the ship dies? The truth. I don’t know. Take a fucking guess. An hour? Less? Next on the list is American Psycho, an excellent character
study of Patrick Bateman played by Christian Bale, shows the sociopathic obsession
with materialism in the 1980s. The story can be a little confusing but
overall, it’s a lot of fun to watch. A decent amount you probably have heard of this movie,
but if you haven’t, I strongly suggest checking it out. [Bateman] There is an idea of a Patrick
Bateman, some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can
shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours, and maybe you can even sense our
lifestyles are probably comparable, I simply am not there. Next on the list is Poutrygeist. Did I not mention how
not all these would be artsy character studies? A hilarious film from Lloyd Kaufman of Troma. Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken
Dead, my best reviewed film. Some have called it my Foul Movement We went on to include perhaps the
greatest scene of explosive diarrhea. If it isn’t the greatest scene of explosive
diarrhea since the Buster Keaton’s scene, it is certainly the greatest scene with a
six-hundred-pound man exploding with diarrhea. [YMS] If you like over the top and unrealistic gore,
combined with intentionally bad acting and delivery, hilarious extras, and the ability to offend nearly
every group thinkable, then Poultrygeist is for you. Grab some buddies, throw this movie
on and then laugh your ass off. [woman] Arbie, Arbie, Arbie!
[Arbie] Wendy. Old Micki’s on my radar. Here come the heat seeking moisture missile! Arbie. Arbie! ARBIE! I was, um, I was just thinking about
the poor chickens. That’s all. I’m sorry, Arbie but how can I ever love
someone who wants me to eat cock? Next up is Audition from Takashi Miike. Although this movie does move a little
slowly, the payoff is totally worth it. It’s about as creepy as you’d expect
of a horror movie coming from Japan, and I don’t really want to give
away too much so just check it out. Next up is Martyrs. This film will fuck you up. It’s not just gore for shock value, this is one of those movies
that will get inside your head and disturb you for days. There are some details about the way it was
filmed that I wish would have been changed, some of the gore effects weren’t convincing, and one of the
songs was a direct rip off of the 28 Days Later theme, but had those things been changed, I’d almost be
willing to call this movie a horror masterpiece. See it. Next up is The Signal. This isn’t so much a horror anthology as
it is three perspectives on a single event. It is from three directors, and the first segment
as the best one, but this movie is a fucking trip. And hey, wouldn’t you know it. The best segment from this movie is the
same director as the best segment from VHS. Why hasn’t this guy directed an entire movie yet? Anyway, this movie is not for everybody, but I fucking love it. [clip] Do you have the crazy? One out of two people just started killing
each other; they just decided to kill people. A broadcast on that scale could cause mass psychosis. The girl in the car wreck outside, did
you see her? Did you see where she went? She was going to find you She might have received this cancerous signal. She might have transmitted it, through the television. Everybody’s a suspect, right now. Everyone! It’s a lie, a trick. No-one can leave the terminus. Die! Ah! Ah! [YMS] Next up is Caché, from my
favorite director Michael Haneke. I’m not sure if I’m really call this a horror movie, so
much as a psychological thriller, but it is disturbing. It’s a little slower paced than what mainstream audiences
are used to, but this is definitely a thinking person’s movie. The plot centers around a man who receives
anonymous video tapes sent to his house, and each tape shows a shot of them being spied on, in what seems
to be obvious places that they would have noticed a camera. The story’s amazing, the acting’s amazing,
the directing’s amazing, it’s just an amazing movie. And I love how much tension this director can
bring without using any music or scare cues. Definitely check it out. And last on my list is: [voiceover] Hausu [YMS] A crazy Japanese movie from 1977,
Hausu will trip you the fuck out. It’s got a fantastic soundtrack, and just the stylization of the movie
is enough to keep you entertained for visual stimulation alone. To try and explain this movie is to not do it justice, but I think this clip will speak for itself in terms
of what type of movie you should be expecting. Well, that’s it for my list, so have some fun fucking
Halloween festivities. Eat some candy or something. But whether you love or hate these
movies, let me know you think. And have a very merry Ha… Happy Halloween! Come on and French me, boys. Subtitles by JorWat
