Tv and Film Sweatshirts | Texas Chainsawyer heather sweatshirt
The original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" movie from 1974 was a cult horror classic, banned for decades around the world because of its excessive gore and violence. A true "video nasty".
It spawned 2 direct sequels and a "next generation" sequel before the cult franchise was bafflingly rebooted in 2003, with a prequel to the reboot appearing 3 years later.
And now the lucrative franchise will have a 7th movie.
Only it's actually the 2nd movie. Again. But not.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 7, or "Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D" as it's called, bizarrely picks up where the 1974 original left off, ignoring the existing sequels, nextgen, reboot and prequel movies, and so it's "Texas Chainsaw Massacre II - Take 2 or 3 - sort of".
Confused? You will be.
Many of the original 1974 cast appear in major roles in TCM7, but playing different characters to the ones they played in the original movie, including the actor who played the original "Leatherface" now playing a different member of the Sawyer family.
But nevermind all that. The original was and always will be a classic movie, groundbreaking and daring, truly frightening without resorting to the kind of cheap shocks that are commonplace in the many post-TCM slasher-movie copycats.
