‘Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers’ Blu-ray Review (88 Films)

23 March 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Gunnar Hansen, Linnea Quigley, Jay Richardson, Dawn Wildsmith, Michelle Bauer, Esther Elise, Tricia Burns, Fox Harris, Jimmy Williams | Written by Fred Olen Ray, T.L. Lankford | Directed by Fred Olen Ray

he United Kingdom has an infamous history when it comes to censorship. The debacle of the eighties with many films, either good or bad becoming the victims of censorship is something that we’d rather forget. Films were looked down on even for having certain words in the title, with one example being Chainsaw which was probably because of the dubious connection to Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  One of these movies that dared to test the censors with such a name was Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers which 88 Films have now released on Blu-ray as part of their Slasher Classics Collection.

While there are plenty of chainsaws on show in the movie it shouldn’t be taken seriously and in reality doesn »

The fun happens at Schlafly Bottleworks Restaurant and Bar in Maplewood (7260 Southwest Ave.- at Manchester – Maplewood, Mo 63143).

'The Lashman' movie review

The Lashman

Written and Directed by Cameron McCasland

Starring Stacey Dixon, Shawn C. Phillips, David Vaughn, Jeremy Jones, and Kaylee Williams

The Lashman has been making it's Festival run for a bit now, and has been getting some love. I will start by saying I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but I know that the slasher film is my favorite sub-genre of horror, so I was excited to get a chance to check it out.

What McCasland, and Co., have constructed here is every bit a love letter to a specific time period in horror history. Films such as “The Town that Dreaded Sundown”, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, and “Friday the 13th” all came to mind, while viewing the movie. I have to admit here and now that this is not my favorite time period for horror. So to say that I »

Over the past few years, Marvel Studios has firmly established itself as one of the big players at the San Diego Comic-Con International, but with the likes of Warner’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and fellow Disney subsidiary Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens expected to feature heavily, it seems that Marvel may have made the decision to skip Hall H this year.

More Details On The New Leatherface

13 March 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Some new casting details about the young Leatherface in the upcoming "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" prequel reveal that the story is going to take a different approach than you might expect.

The Wrap reports that the film will be "presented as a mystery of sorts about three teenage psychopaths, one of whom grows up to be Leatherface."

Sam Strike, who was reportedly cast as the young Leatherface earlier this week, will play one of the trio named Jackson. James Bloor has also just joined the cast as Ike, one other other candidates, with the third yet to be cast.

The story will center around the kids who break out of an institution. Also onboard is Angela Bettis as the Sawyer family matriarch Verna, a part played by Marilyn Burns in 2013's "Texas Chainsaw 3D".

Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo are helming "Leatherface" which will be based on a script by Seth M. Sherwood. »

'Texas Chainsaw' Prequel Mystery Asks: Who Is Leatherface?

12 March 2015 3:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While it was reported earlier in the week that EastEnders star Sam Strike is starring as a teenage Leatherface in the Texas Chainsaw prequel, that may not be entirely true. While he is confirmed to be playing a killer in this latest entry in the horror franchise, the movie will actually be a mystery that revolves around 3 teenage psychopaths. And the big question at the end of the movie will be: Who is Leatherface?

Relative unknown James Bloor will play the second teenage psychopath in a role that is described exactly like Sam Strike's character. Both will play budding young maniacs who have an affinity for the chainsaw. And 'saw', as any true The Texas Chainsaw Massacre fan knows, is family! At this point, it is unknown if different actors will play Leatherface at different stages of his life, or if it will all take place in one time period. »

Texas Chainsaw Prequel Leatherface Gains New Cast Members And Story Details

12 March 2015 3:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Millenium Films’ forthcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel is setting up a new origin story for the franchise’s power-tool wielding baddie – and a new cast of characters to tell it.

Currently titled Leatherface, the movie hit headlines earlier this week with the news that Eastenders‘ star Sam Strike had signed on to play a young version of the psychotic killer. In light of more casting announcements, it seems Strike won’t be the only one with murderous intent.

Per The Wrap, which revealed that newcomer James Bloor had also signed on, Leatherface is described as “a mystery of sorts about three teenage psychopaths, one of whom grows up to be Leatherface.” Bloor will play Ike a “budding young maniac” who, much like Strike’s character Jackson, may develop and at some later point become Leatherface.

As the outlet states, there’s no clear indication as to the nature of this rebooted origin tale. »

Casting News for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Prequel ‘Leatherface’

12 March 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For somebody to drive a chainsaw through a human body, swing a mallet down on someone's head, and wear another person's skin on their own, they likely had some tumultuous teen years. Though we got a taste of what Leatherface's, aka Thomas Hewitt's, younger years were like in Jonathan Liebesman's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, we haven't had a full helping of those growing pains-filled times, but French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo are looking to change that with Leatherface, an upcoming prequel to Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. From Millennium Films, Leatherface will at the very least explore a slice of the titular antagonist's teen life and although cameras haven't started rolling on the project yet, a growing cast is being assembled, with one of the actors potentially set to play the legendary backroads killer.

Is Sam Strike About to be Leatherface

Millennium Films who stuffed the aforementioned piece of shit Texas Chainsaw 3D down our throats two years ago will once again be the production vehicle guiding us through the questionable Leatherface. That doesnt sound promising. However the fact that Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo the duo responsible for the amazing films Inside ( lintrieur) and Livide are taking the helm does offer some extreme intrigue. Were talking about truly talented filmmakers. »

'Texas Chainsaw' Prequel Casts 'EastEnders' Star as 'Leatherface'

9 March 2015 5:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sam Strike In Talks For Leatherface Prequel

9 March 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo confirmed last November, attention has now turned to the potential casting of the developing Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel Leatherface. Where have they been looking? Walford, apparently. Currently in the frame for a starring role as the young Leatherface is Eastenders' Sam Strike.Strike arrived on the London soap in 2013 as Johnny Carter, the son of Danny Dyer's Queen Vic landlord Mick. He left last November (although he was back for the Christmas episode and the door seems open to him for future returns). Now we know where he was heading...The new Chainsaw film follows 2013's hapless Texas Chainsaw 3D as the eighth film in the scrappy franchise. It's the second to be called Leatherface, following Jeff Burr's third instalment in 1990 starring a young Viggo Mortensen. It's also the second attempt at a prequel, after Jonathan Liebesman's Texas Chainsaw »
