To get into the holiday spirit, Nate and I decided to watch one of the founding fathers of the slasher genre, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The movie is celebrating its 40th anniversary and neither Nate nor I have seen it, so we have no idea what’s in store. Our current plan is to split up. I’ll go upstairs; Nate will go downstairs. Beyond that, we’re not sure. I plan on leaving my cell phone in the car just because I don’t want to lose it in that dark house.
Nate just said he’s going to leave his in the car too, because, in his words, “What’s the worst that could happen?” and I couldn’t agree more.
Until we get back, why don’t you tell us what you think of this movie? Have you seen it? Does it deserve its place at number 3 on Time Out London’s top 100 horror movies? If you haven’t seen it, what’s keeping you? What do you think of horror movies? Slasher films? What are some horror movies you like?
Sorry, we have to go. There’s this really awesome looking doll in the window of this house that I just noticed. Nate just saw it too. He even said, “Funny. I don’t remember seeing that doll there before,” as I wrote that. Ha. Something tells me this is going to be just the weekend getaway I need.
