JFD183: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1, 2 & 3

Shlocktober continues this week and we have three movies that lead to one of the most bizarre podcasts in the annals of American history. It's our Texas Chainsaw Massacre theme show.

First, a group of kids stumble on a farmhouse full of cannibal rednecks in Tobe Hooper's 1974 ground-breaking "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." We're introduced to the iconic Leatherface and the rest of the crazed clan in this gruesome satirical horror flick.

Next, the crazed meat-eating family returns in 1986's "Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2." Made 12 years after the original, Cannon convinced Hooper to return to the franchise with this absurd black comedy featuring Dennis Hopper and Bill Mosely.

Finally, Viggo Mortensen and Ken Foree star in a new age of sadistic cannablism in "Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3" from 1990. Without Tobe Hooper involved, New Line gobbled up the franchise for this sequel... uh, reboot.... or something.

All this plus witty banter between friends, extremely clean Skype qualities, Machete Bombs, this week's DVD + blu-ray releases, complete confidentiality, no police involvement, the musings of a Sweet Man, a saw introduced in the first act not used in the third, bones, and so much more!

  2. speaking of great commentaries for movies, one of my favorites is on the Rules of Attraction DVD, featuring a Carrot Top only commentary track. He is literally watching the film for the first time and his reactions are hilarious as he sounds completely perplexed and bewildered the whole time. No idea why they had him do commentary since he wasn't in it or had anything to do with it. But it is easily one of the most bizarre and memorable commentaries I've ever heard. Definitely check that out!

    1. Absolutely!! That DVD has so many weird commentaries. If I remember correctly, doesn't Ron Jeremy show up and do some commentary for no reason, too?
