Episode 79: Leatherface
On this episode of Worst Millennials, I’m joined by John and Kaz of The Accidental Wrestling Fan. We talked mostly about horror movies this episode, which is a bit of a departure from our normal conversations. I guess you can consider it a spin-off.
THE SAW IS FAMILY
For some god forsaken reason, Lionsgate greenlit another film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. The upcoming film, Leatherface, is a prequel to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Yes, I know there was a prequel in 2006 called The Beginning. That film is a totally separate timeline as it was apart of the New Line Cinema series of films. That means the new timeline goes Leatherface, TCM, and Texas Chainsaw 3D. Although, Lionsgate would be better off pretending that putrid shit show doesn’t exist.
It did give us one of the best (worst) one-liners of all-time from Alexandria Daddario.
It also gave us whatever this is.
REMAKES AND REBOOTS
We live in a world of remakes and reboots. Well, mostly reboots. Just a clever way to obtain the rights to an IP without pissing off fans of the original work by doing a lazy remake. Although, most reboots are just lazy remakes where they change the names of key characters and kill people in nearly-identical ways. Kaz is stumped as to if there’s a good horror movie remake. Other than The Thing or The Fly, I’d have to say the Silent Night, Deadly Night remake is right up there.
REVERSE BEAR TRAP OF SUCK
Texas Chainsaw isn’t the only franchise that Lionsgate is bringing back from the dead. The Saw franchise is back in your life. Kind of like an ex that’s no good for you but is great in the sack and makes you fried bologna sandwiches. The latest installment is called Jigsaw, named after the franchise’s twisted version of Kevin McCallister. Despite the fact that he’s been dead a third of the way through the series, ol’ John Kramer (or a copycat) is back killing people in more convoluted ways than the entire Final Destination franchise combined. You can watch the trailer below.Next Episode: Episode 80: Cart Corral
