Today…is about maniacs. Last year we were hanging with Freddy Krueger. Before that, Jason, and before that even, it was Michael Myers. It only makes sense to spend some quality time with Leatherface. And the original Leatherface, not the one that was made to play second fiddle to R. Lee Ermey in the remake. Of course, that’s the problem with trying to play with Ermey: even Satan himself looks at Ermey and goes, “Just damn.”
Now I want to admit something to you: when I finally watched the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I spent most of the movie rolling on the floor, laughing my ass off. On one hand, bits of it were pretty ludicrous, but on the other hand I had heard that there was some subliminal stuff in the film trying to make it scarier–so my theory has always been that my brain is so screwed up, they were going for scary and my brain interpreted that as “funny.” But rewatching this trailer–makes it look just as scary as I thought it was going to be. Enjoy.
