All the Best,
In lew of Halloween, I want to include not just great music that scares us but also the movies that continue to become a tradition to watch during this time of year that literally scare the crap out of us. For something of a treat, I happened to stumble across a few things with this one film that I happened to find very interesting and at time very disturbing. The film is none other than the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the grand daddy slasher film that was released in 1974. It was a true horror masterpiece which will, believe it or not, get a sequel (not a remake or prequel) in 2013. But what is amazing about this film how much it has affected our culture and the horror movie genre over the years. It continues to be the quintisential film watched during these spooky times of the year, its back story of development and also its true changes to changes to conventional horror which were paved by George A. Romero and John Carpenter. The success of the film paved the way for some sequels, one starting Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger. There is so much I could tell about what makes this film special, but I will leave some videos for you all to watch to get the backstory. I will also have one here at the bottom of the post about the filming location and where and how it is used today. You might just find it odd and interesting.
All the Best,
Here is a behind the scenes look of the movie made by the E! Entertainment channel.
The Original 1974 Trailer to the ORIGINAL TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE
The trailer to the 2003 Remake, which gave it a more "based on a true story story" kind of look.
And finally the actual trailer to be released some time in 2013 as a DIRECT sequel to the original film.
And here is something some of you probably didn't probably know. For all you film buffs out there who like to visit places where films were made, check out what was done with the ACTUAL Leatherface house where the film was actually shot. Its call Junction House restaurant AND YES ITS STILL IN TEXAS. Remember this is the house from the 1974 film, not the 2003 remake.
Ive even included a map on how to find it if you are brave enough to visit...and have a meal.
