The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

Leatherface is mega creepy.

Okay, Michael Bay,
we get the point already:
remake everything.

What is TCM really inspired by? Apparently, Leatherface is based on real-life creepazoid Ed Gein, and the events on any number of urban legends involving teenagers, vans, drugs and sex.

    I didn’t get the Michael Bay connection ’til I looked it up: Michael Bay co-owns Platinum Dunes, a production house which has remade horror movies including Friday the 13th, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Boo, Platinum Dunes. These garbagey films deserve better, I guess.

    Ed Gein was also allegedly the inspiration for “Psycho” and “Silence of the Lambs”. Based on true stories, y’all!

    I’m looking forward to the Michael Bay remakes of Michael Bay films. “Bad Boys” remake starring Bow Wow and Malcolm David Kelley from “Lost,” anyone?

    Ed Gein was also allegedly the inspiration for that extra creepy epsidoe of “The X-Files” that aways have the viewer’s warning in front of it (“Home”)… at least, I think he is.

    I remember watching that episode very quietly in my room (a school night!). The commericals basically promised explict content, but it was not to be. Just a bunch of gross hillbillies.

    NOTE: The deputy that accompanies Mulder & Scully on the case? Our very own native son, Sebastian Spence.
