    The events of that day were to lead to the discovery of one of the most bizarre crimes in the annals of American history, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

    First movie of this year’s Horroctober! It’s better than Christmas.

    45 years ago today, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre premiered in Austin, Texas and the world of horror was never the same again. It spawned 7 sequels, prequels and remakes but none of them were ever able to match the…

    Look what your brother did to the door! Ain't he got no pride in his home?
    -Old Man

    Jim Siedow always cracks me up in this despite the film being insanely terrifying. The line about the door is the best thing ever. Not many laughs to be had after that line though. Also horror geeks should never forget to tip their hats to arguably the first Final Girl Sally Hardesty played by Marilyn Burns.

    I never think of Texas Chainsaw Massacre as a "franchise", but it's unarguably is one with it's 8th film coming out this month (8th film?!). It's probably because even the numbered sequels feel like remakes/reboots with the film makers just doing whatever they wanted. Hell even Tobe Hooper's own direct sequel is completely different in tone.

    Few films have ever been able to recreate the visceral insanity that is Hooper's masterpiece, so I…

    Marilyn Burns
    May 7, 1949 - August 5, 2014

    I reviewed the film back in October 2012 and Marilyn Burns was actually the only actor in the film that I mentioned:

    Even though I know nothing about Sally Hardesty (Marilyn Burns), her terror during the last act of the film is still bone chilling to the core.

    Marilyn Burns isn't just in one of THE iconic horror films of all time, but the very…

    You don't want to go fooling around other folks' property. If some folks don't like it... they don't mind showing you.
    -Old Man

    It's been a few years since I watched this, but John Larroquette's voice over narration still gave me a small disturbing chill. It always reminds me of the first time I saw the film and having that feeling that "maybe I shouldn't be watching this..." I don't remember my age at the time, but do remember the…
