Ep. 03-36: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

Sally (Marilyn Burns), suspecting her grandfather’s grave may have been vandalized, sets out with her brother, Franklin (Paul A. Partain), and their friends to investigate. After a detour to their family’s old farmhouse, they discover a crazed, murderous cannibal family living next door. As the group is attacked one by one by the chainsaw-wielding cook, Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen), the survivors must do everything they can to escape.

Episode 36 – The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

If ever there was a movie synonymous with the phrase Drive-In movie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) would be at the top of the list. Hugely influential for many-a-horror movie to come (Halloween 1978, Friday the 13th 1980, The Evil Dead 1981), Tobe Hooper’s low-budget indie classic also followed in the footsteps of other pioneering startups including George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968). Join us as we discuss genre-defining tropes and the blossoming of creativity under harsh conditions. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys veers off the highway to back roads, where there is no safety, no rules, and you may be no more than dinner to the folks in that nice farmhouse down the way.
