Film Reviews & Headlines


2019 was a banner year for horror, seeing
top-notch terror being made at every opportunity. There were spine-tingling remakes of classics
like Child’s Play and Pet Semetary, wicked sequels like It 2 and the ten-year follow-up
to Zombieland, and singularly horrifying original ideas along the lines of Ari Aster’s Midsommar,
Jordan Peele’s Us, and Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse. Although its lots of fun to look back and
evaluate the frightening films of the past year, we have to make sure we’re prepared
for the bloodbath yet to ensue. Welcome back to the scariest channel on YouTube,
Top5ScaryVideos. Today we’re counting down the top 5 scary
movies coming out in 2020. My name is Keegan Hughes, and I’m your newest
horrifying host here to guide you through the circles; from limbo to treachery. As always, make sure to give us a big thumbs
up and subscribe if you want to see more movies from the future. Let’s get started. #5: CANDYMAN Disembowelment by hook-hand,mouthfuls of live
bees, baby-snatching dog killers. Do any of these phrases freak you out? If so, this is the horror movie for you. Candyman is the long-awaited follow-up to
the 1992 cult classic of the same name. The original flick saw a young grad student
named Helen researching urban legends for her thesis. While researching, she comes across the legend
of the Candyman; a spectre with a hook jammed into his bloody stump of an arm who can be
summoned by saying his name 5 times while facing a mirror. As most protagonists in horror movies are,
Helen and her best friend are skeptical and decide to investigate further. This investigation sets off a series of brutal
events including the kidnapping of a baby, the evisceration of Helen’s friend, the
murder of a psychiatrist, and a giant people-frying bonfire. This remake has been in the works for a while,
and by the looks of it will be even scarier than the first. Jordan Peele, the director of hits like “Us”
and “Get Out,” has taken on a producer role for this. His outstanding track record and love of horror
should mean that Candyman exceeds expectations. If true to Monkeypaw Productions standards,
it could be pretty funny too! If you’re worried about remake fatigue setting
in, fret not: the remake has already been heartily endorsed by the original Candyman
himself: Tony Todd. Todd was quoted saying “the way Jordan Peele
explained it to me was that it’s gonna be applause-worthy moments … No matter what
happens with that, it’s gonna just put renewed attention on the original.” Todd has also been listed as cast, so there’s
a possibility he’ll be back to reprise his titular role! Could this mean there are two murderous mirror-spirits
in this one? I don’t know how many hook hands and bee-swarms
I can handle. And with that, I’ve realized that I have
the hook-handed man’s name five times. Are there any mirrors in here? Yes? Send help. #4: THE CONJURING 3 The wait is finally over! After seeing in-universe additions like Annabelle:
Creation, Annabelle Comes Home, The Nun, and The Curse of La Llorona, we’re getting a
new mainline Conjuring movie. Buckle your seatbelts, grab your bibles, and
prepare for some “hide + clap,” because The Conjuring 3 is coming. The first two Conjuring movies saw paranormal
investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren square off against some particularly bloodthirsty
(and blood-pukey in some cases) spirits. Each had to do with a family in danger of
being killed by these ghosts. However, James Wan has revealed that this
new Conjuring will have to do with a man on trial for murder. The plot, like those in all of the Conjuring
Universe movies, is based on real-life case files put together by the Warrens. It takes a look at a murder trial in the 80’s
where the crime was blamed on a posessed object. This real-life trial stirred up a lot of controversy
back in the day, and the Warrens were at the centre of the wild news cycle surrounding
it. There has even been speculation that there
might be some lycanthropy involved. Star Patrick Warren has dropped hints recently
that imply it could be “a beast” of a film. The Conjuring plus werewolves could turn out
to be a monstrous combination. The movie will likely develop some more of
the running themes that are common throughout The Conjuring Universe. Haunted objects, killer spirits, failed exorcisms,
you name it. We will learn more about the young Warrens,
and they have cast two new actors to play the investigative couple of years past. It makes me wonder: what kind of haunted objects
will we come across this time? What possessed antiquity will enter the Warren’s
collection? #3: HALLOWEEN KILLS As we have learned time and time again, it
is impossible to actually kill Michael Meyers. Even after being locked into a burning house
at the end of the previous movie, he has managed to live on to terrorize the Strode family. You can stab him in the eye, shoot him multiple
times, burn him beyond recognition, lock him up for 30 years, it doesn’t matter. He’ll always come back with a mask and a
knife. And he’ll always be ready to kill. Which is probably where they came up with
the title for this one! The latest entry into the legendary slasher
franchise is sure to get a scare out of even the most seasoned horror junkie. The 2018 version walked the fine line between
nostalgia and new thrills like a seasoned circus performer. I love it when a flick can pay homage to the
original, but also bring something new to the table. I wouldn’t complain in Halloween Kills involves
more heads being crushed under boots, just saying. Here’s hoping for more incredible music
by John Carpenter as well. There’s not too much to go on yet, but there
was a teaser trailer that made its way online a little while ago. Behind-the-scenes footage shows us a few crazy
moments from set, with a bit of terrified screaming in the background. My personal favourite from the teaser is Lorie
Strode lying in a hospital stretcher, up to her elbows in blood. You gotta love it when a slasher turns into
a blood-splasher. On top of learning a little bit about Halloween
Kills, we also are made aware of yet another sequel already in development. Halloween Ends is following up right away
in 2021. That means more festive Halloween cheer for
years to come. It really is the most wonderful time of the
year. I for one am excited to constantly be looking
over my shoulder to make sure Mr. Meyers isn’t stalking me until then. #2: THE TURNING There’s nothing more chilling than a good
old-fashioned ghost story. I can still recall nights where a young Keegan
would stay up way past his bedtime to finish a spooky short story taken from the school
library. The uncertainty, the dread, the overall inability
to explain exactly what’s happening; all elements of a tale that will scare your pants
off. All of these are present in Henry James’
classic ghost story “The Turn of the Screw,” which “The Turning” is based upon. If we’re lucky, the same elements that make
the written word so lastingly creepy will be translated well on to the big screen. The movie seems to be a modernized version
of the novella, with a live-in nanny arriving at an old manor to care for two cute and creepy
orphans. From there, she realizes that the building
is most definitely haunted, and the children are more than likely possessed. Finn Wolfhard stars as one of the orphans,
which means that I can’t totally rule out the possibility of a demagorgon showing up
at some point. That would really turn our expectations “upside-down”
eh? Oh boy. Jokes aside, there is a lot of possibility
for this movie to be really disturbing. The trailer has its fair share of blood-curdling
moments, including a young girl either vomiting or eating a giant spider, a disembodied hand
scuttling around, and a Victorian-style ghost floating around an abandoned hallway. All good images that point to the possibility
of much, much more. #1: ANTLERS This one has a unique possibility to be something
really special. Produced by Guillermo del Toro, directed by
Scott Cooper, and based on a short story by Nick Antosca, it is being 100% set up for
nightmarish, hair-raising success. It follows the story of a young teacher who
takes pity on a very creative, yet poor student. He tells her the story of his life in the
form of a fairy tale, with some eerie illustrations to accompany it. She takes great interest in helping him, but
soon comes to realize a dark, deadly, shapeshifting secret that he’s been hiding. If you didn’t know, Nick Antosca is a modern
horror master. He has written countless creepypasta stories,
and adapted some of the best into the incredible horror anthology TV series Channel Zero. Channel Zero expands on the fantastically
creepy ideas behind these viral scary stories, and turns them into beautiful, compelling
horror television. If you haven’t seen any Channel Zero yet,
I’d highly recommend you do so. It will guaranteed get you hyped up for Antlers. I mentioned before that the movie is based
on a short story; The Quiet Boy by Nick Antosca. This is actually available for free online
on Guernica. If you can’t wait for the movie to shock
you into submission, take a look at the story right now. Obviously if you do this get ready for spoilers,
but it’s probably just going to get you super stoked for this flick to come out. If you read the story you’ll know that it
doesn’t end in a predictable way, which is big! A lot of horror movies can’t quite stick
the landing, but this one is a slam dunk. Here’s hoping the ending stays the same
in the movie! If done well, the monsters in Antlers have
the potential to be some of the scariest of the past few years. Bear-people-hybrids with antlers and a thirst
for blood and pain? A creepy family of monsters living alone up
in the mountains? A little boy who wants to protect his monstrous
family, but also wants to live a normal life? All of these factors add up to a ridiculously
scary movie. OUTRO Well that’s all we have for today’s list! I don’t claim to be a prophet, but by using
my spooky senses and creepy calculations I tried my best to give you a look at the scariest
movies coming your way in 2020. Did you like the list? Are you excited to see any of these movies? Are there any freaky flicks I missed? Let me know what you think down in the comments. Also, if you haven’t already make sure to
give this video a big thumbs up, and subscribe if you want to see more maddening movie content. Thank you so much for watching, and I’ll
see you next time.

  1. Once you finish this video, we have another horror movie list right here – Top 5 Scariest Horror Movies Based On Folklore

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHwF0aZ1nro

  2. What there's a new host? I didn't know😢😢😢 I'm gonna miss Jack so much he was the best host in my opinion

  3. Dang, I just can't deal with this guy, something about him just irks me
    Guess I can only watch the Queens videos now. Damn shame

  4. I've tried to watch him but he seems so monotonous I've lost all interest. I still watch Lucy but this guy has lost me as a viewer. Shame because he had some interesting vids he is just not engaging like jack was.

  5. Wow! I didn't know they were remaking Candy man. I remember watching that as a kid. One of my older cousins would always make me watch horror movies with her when she was in charge of babysitting me.

  6. Y'all addicted to hosts pushing it, overdoing it. I really like his more natural style and prononciation. It's so refreshing.
    Still, will need time to get used to a new host, loved Jack so much.
    Be yourself, stay yourself, new guy. You're okay👌

  7. Hey Keegan… Loved The Video 🤩 You'll Be Fine… But You Need To Be Less Robotic And Dry With Your Presentation! Keep Trying Because I Feel You'll Be A Good Host In No Time! Good Luck & Welcome To The Channel!

  8. Star Patrick Warren? You mean Patrick Wilson.

    I’m holding judgement on this guy until he puts out a few more videos, but I’m not feeling him. He doesn’t have much screen presence.

  9. Ok Keegan, your delivery reminds me of Shatner. I have faith you will evolve as you host more videos. Welcome to the family.

  10. I made it through this one. Was a bit of a slog though. Are we acting a bit indifferent and flat? If so, the Oscar goes too…this guy 🔼🔼🔼
    Getting better, incrementally. But better is better.

  11. I am so stoked for Candyman. I love the original, it's a bona fide CLASSIC.

    I met Tony Todd a couple of years ago. He is such a nice man, always welcoming his fans.

  12. Keegan, have you watched "Annabelle Comes Home", it shows the supposed werewolf,

    Spoiler-it's actually a hell hound and the artifact your talking about is a book which is show in the movie.

  13. Huh? Who is this personality-free,1950's pencil 'tashed, drone monster? I fell asleep 3 minutes in…Bring back Jack and Lucy!

  14. I miss Jack to y'all, really do, Jack was awesome, loved that guy, but let's give some love to the new guy too, I can already tell he's getting better, just needs to get his trail legs that's all it is.
    Keep it up and keep loosening up brother, you'll get better an better.
    Great list BTW, really looking forward to Antlers.

  15. Who is worse? Abbey or this new guy? See? Can't even take the time to remember his name. Bring back Jack and Rebecca. Seriously, if not for Che and Landon I'd be done with this channel.

  16. I certainly hope there are better horror movies next year, because right now these don't look so good but once they are out they could be great. Even though the newest Halloween sucked.

  17. Keegan, Breathe and relax man… you sound like you’re learning to read and your facial expressions are… well there aren’t any 👎🏼

  18. Letting go or losing Jack was a huge miscalculation. I have been skipping videos simply because he was a big draw for me.

  19. The Turning looks damn good and Turn of The Screw is living large because the second season of Haunting of Hill House is based on the same novel

  20. Halloween Ends? What a friggin joke. Halloween is the definition of franchise fatigue. "we brought Jamie lee back!"….yeah, you did that in the nineties too….BFD how about an original movie? Right

  21. If the movie is anything like the story then get ready for some chills and thrills! Antlers is one movie I can't wait to see!

  22. I literally cannot watch this anymore anything the Keegan? Keenan? Guy is on I feel like he's just staring at cue cards and blandly reading. He just does not have it.

  23. Not fair to Keegan (he seems like a super nice guy) but he has no charisma compared to Jack and Lucy, who both ooze it. I find it hard to get through his videos.

  24. Can you please stop trying to be funny I’m sorry not trying to be a jerk but it doesn’t work for you and ruins the whole video

  25. Sigh I miss Jack. Not offence Keegan, you seem like a nice guy, but you show no emotion. I'll check you out again in a few weeks, until than, I'll seek out Lucy. Sorry, but I have limited time and have to be careful how I spend it.

  26. Well I got quite a shock when I tuned in. Jack was like a fun younger brother. Keegan is, like, old enough to be my grandson.

  27. I missed what is happening cause when I hit the button on this vid and saw someone not Lucy or Jack, I was like who is this? Then when he introduced himself as a new host; I am like OK Welcome Keegan but than I read the comments saying Jack is no longer here. What happened to Jack did he quit, got axed? I mean you do a good job Keegan, I just want to know what happened?

  28. Welcome Keegan!! I have known about all these coming out and Halloween kills, And Antlers I am truly excited about. Keep up the good work!!

  29. Look I see that unlike hand have entirely to many dislikes. If it's because he's the New host… stop it! Stop being so petty and hateful and disrespectful.

  30. You missed a psychological Thriller coming out in April 2020. Its call Annebellum I think. It's starring Janelle Monae

  31. Bit of a spoiler for antlers. May have to give you a bit of a miss when you talk about future events from now on.
