The REAL Story Behind THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: The Notorious Killer Ed Gein

In 1974, director Tobe Hooper revolutionized horror with his film “inspired by a true story,” THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. Almost immediately after the film’s release, rumors began to circulate that there was an actual chainsaw wielding madman living with his deranged family in the town of Poth, Texas. The inspired events were also said to […]

Vintage Video – Barbara Walters Vs VCR Horrors!

As a lifelong horror fan, sometimes I like to go down the YouTube rabbit hole in search of old video clips that bring me back to the glory days of mom & pop VHS rental stores and the era in which my insatiable, dark little mind was first discovering all these genre classics. Hey, I […]

Even MORE Final Entries In Horror Franchises

As we all know, even when a horror sequel has got the word “FINAL” somewhere in the title, it’s never really the end. Sometimes, a new beginning emerges, or perhaps a reboot or versus movie. Any way you slice (and dice) it, when it comes to our beloved movie maniacs, they’ll always be back. But […]

Here’s How You Could Have Remade WAXWORK

I’m a huge fan of monster mashes. I mean, I think we all are, right? We grow up watching these larger than life characters that fill us with both fright and delight, and for whatever reason, we immediately start contemplating what the odds would be like if they ever faced off against each other. My […]

10 Franchises We’d Love To See As Comic Books

Growing up, my two greatest loves were horror movies and comic books. So when Marvel very briefly flirted with doing a series based on A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, it was nirvana for me! (Read all about it here.) Although cancelled after 2 issues, other comic companies in the early 90’s picked up the mantle […]

TEXAS CHAINSAW Survivor Sally Hardesty Gets All Our #RESPECT

Sometimes, there are characters in genre pictures that are so darned righteous, you can’t stop thinking about them or their amazing feats long after the movie is over. This column is dedicated to those cinematic bad-asses that keep us coming back for more. And one of the greatest characters to ever face the perils of […]

Killer POV Pick Of The Week – EATEN ALIVE

Just skimming through the filmography of director Tobe Hooper and seeing titles like SALEM’S LOT, THE FUNHOUSE & LIFEFORCE would be more than enough to earn him the title as a “master of horror,” but quite frankly, he could’ve been crowned it right out of the gate in 1974 with his horror debut masterpiece THE […]

R.I.P. Gunnar Hansen, The Original Leatherface

This hurts. ABC7 is reporting that Gunnar Hansen, the actor to first portray Leatherface in the original TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE has passed away. He was 68 years old. Anyone within the horror community that’s ever met Gunnar at a convention, screening or event can attest to the fact that he was easily one of the warmest, […]

The Butchered Art of Cao Hui

Artist Cao Hui’s “Visual Temperature” art exhibit looks like something you would expect to find in Leatherface’s living room, not in a museum. His work aims to look beyond the surface, and in this case, beyond the surface of innocent items like jackets and sofas is guts, blood, and viscera. Using mixed materials including resin […]

DOUBLE TAKE – THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE

To me, the key to a truly great “remake” of a pre-existing horror film is simple. Would the new update make a good double feature with the original movie? When it comes to programming a double feature, the goal is to find two movies with a similar theme that would complement each other. And there’s […]
