Episode 72: Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

TCM NG SITEThis week on the podcast we watched 1994’s ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, starring Academy Award winners Matthew McConaughy and Renee Zellweger. After all these years, the legend is still buzzing about in the backwoods of Texas. While the film begins with the typical teens lost in the woods horror movie trope, the rest of this movie is beyond any other in the series. It goes onto suggest the Sawyer (or as IMDB says Slaughter) Family has actually been doing the dirty work of some sort of Illuminati organization this whole time. Not only does it give us that, but also now Leatherface is some sort of transexual and has a brother named Vilmer (McConaughy) with a robotic leg. While this movie is over the top and awful, Matthew McConaughy actually delivers one hell of a performance. The last 10-15 minutes of this movie are so confusing and messy, it leaves you with about a billion questions left unanswered.

Episode 71: The Phantom Of The Opera (1989)

0521553_6905_MC_Tx304When you hear that there was an adaptation of The Phantom Of The Opera made in 1989, starring Robert Englund, you probably think its going to be a bloody and cheesy take on it, right? Especially when the poster says “First he was Freddy, now he’s The Phantom,” right? Well, you would be very wrong; just like we were. This adaptation, while much more of a horror movie than any others, is actually said to be the most faithful adaptation to the Gaston Leroux original novel. Aside from the present day scenes in the beginning and end, it’s a very serious take on The Phantom. It does have some somewhat gory parts, along with some great makeup effects when he is putting on and taking off his face, but over all was pretty much a snoozefest. Speaking of snoozefest, one of us *cough* Ryan *cough* actually fell asleep for a small section of this movie.

Next week on the podcast, we are watching a movie that truly buried a franchise for many years. In 1994, future oscar winners Renee Zellweger & Matthew McConaughey starred in the absolutely horrendous Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. It’s the tale as old as time: a group of teenagers get into a car crash in the Texas woods on prom night, and then wander into an old farmhouse that is home to Leatherface and his insane family of cannibalistic psychopaths.
