Directed by the late Tobe Hooper, the music video for Billy Idol’s first big US hit, “Dancing With Myself”, finds Billy in some sort of apocalyptic wasteland with zombies swarming an apartment building that has equally horrific things happening within.
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris and Joe pay tribute to Tobe Hooper, dive into the Game of Thrones finale, the original IT, the retro awesomeness of Starcade, Guillermo Del Toro’s horror house and much more.
The origins of the titular, chainsaw wielding murderer will be revealed in this fall’s Texas Chainsaw prequel, where the person who will become Leatherface is one of four inmates who escape from an asylum and goes on a bloody rampage toward freedom.
Although he got goofier and goofier as the series went on, there is still something absolutely horrifying about a giant redneck with a chainsaw and skin mask.
Leatherface is back in 3D next year in the latest entry in the franchise that disregards all movies except the original and picks up decades later when a girl inherits a mansion in Texas that Leatherface just so happens to be hiding out in.
