    October 26, 2010 at 3:13 am

    Damn I love this movie!!! kinda said that MM is slowly comming to an end.

    James, I know your not a big fan of the 90’s/00’s horror films so I’m happy to see TCM3 made the list, Im kinda sad that NEAR DARK hasen’t made a MM yet and I’m still holding hope that (2001’s) FRAILTY makes the list it’s an underrated sleeper horror flick if i ever seen one

  • October 26, 2010 at 3:14 am

    awesome review, can’t wait for bad taste

  • Phill6

    October 26, 2010 at 3:15 am

    This one was actually a good movie, Yeah it was not as good as the other two but from the shitfest that James has shown us I have to say this one is the best movie reviewed this year so far, It was really interesting and has a lot of cool moments, the is no gore like James said, but there is a lot of fucked up things going on, a lot of body parts around, the family in this one is better in my opinion than from the second one, I like the characters better, I think James was a little harsh, people should totally give it a chance.
    Great Review James, I could listen to you talking about movies for hours, Seriously you have a great voice and a great mind, Keep em coming,
    I have watched everything you have done, and always impressed, never disappointed with your videos.
    Great way to start the day.
    Is getting closer, I really hope we get to see the review of Killer Klowns from outer space.
    Also I wish we got a review from trick ‘ treat. 🙁

  • October 26, 2010 at 3:16 am

    fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck FUUUUUUCK!!!!! i just remembered: bad taste came out in 1987, this came out in 1990. we ain’t seeing bad taste this year

    @ Phill6,
    Killer Klowns came out in 1988 and we are in the 90’s, sorry no Klowns this MM.

    I kinda liked this movie, it was fun in it’s own right. Not as good as the first one or as funnily messed up as the second one, but a whole lot better than the 2003 remake.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:48 am

    Had no idea that Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) Was in a chainsaw massacre movie, thats just awesome!

  • October 26, 2010 at 4:41 am

    I think the joke about the Speak n Spell was that since the family is a bunch of cannibals, Leatherface thinks that anything human is food.

    Another Great review James. I think you said a while back that you had trouble coming up with good picks for MM because you hit most of the great stuff already. Your review of Transylvania 6-5000 made me think. Why not a whole month of Horror spoof/comedies? Stuff like Killer Tomato films, Student Bodies from 1980, Repossessed from 1990, Abbot and Costello meet ____, etc. Do a tongue in cheek one.

    I would love to hear your comments on these films.

  • October 26, 2010 at 8:37 am

    I had dinner the other day with the person whose uncle was the guy who played the original leatherface in the first film…. creepy! BOOM

  • October 26, 2010 at 9:25 am

    Now that you did that movie, you must do Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, just because Matthew Macoughney and Renee Zellweger are in it.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:15 am

    No shit, why the hell doesn’t Aragorn get his props for this piece of shit movie? I didn’t even know he was in this one. The earliest movie I ever saw him in was Carlito’s Way. WTF, Nerd? You’re slacking. Nah, just kidding, you’re the man. Keep up the good work.

  • October 26, 2010 at 11:48 am

    Weird. I own this on DVD and literally tried to watch it last night, but my DVD player was being a bitch and it kept freezing up.
    I’m actually very fond of this movie. I can see what you’re saying about them cutting out some gore, but other than that I think it’s a damn good movie. Light years better that “The Next Generation”.

  • Cheznar

    October 26, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    Yeah…Leatherface is’nt that good I’ve got all of them I still watch this one from time to time though I still say that second one for some odd reason is my favorite it reminds me of going to the old Natco Flea market … its some wierd nostalgia for me truck stops and white trash I love the filth…yes!!!

    0:27- I agree with angel85 at this moment of the film. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE LEATHERFACE!!!

    3:28- That’s the song that Redneck sang in your AVGN episode where you reviewed TCSM on Atari.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    You know what’s BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULLLSHIT? The MPAA. Seriously, i’m not joking. MPAA is CONSTANTLY inconsistent and hypocritical, just see the documentary This Movie Is Not Yet Rated. Either way, that would make a great YKWBS episode.

  • SpearedPage

    October 26, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    James: In the scene where Leatherface keeps typing “F O O D” on the Speak & Spell machine, what he should be spelling, in accordance with the picture, is “F O O L.” (You were close when you said the image was of a clown.)

    And Christopher Carrera was right, I think, when he posted that Leatherface’s confusion about the image results from his twisted, cannibal mind: he mistakes humans for food.

  • Rattrap007

    October 26, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    Speared there were 5 blanks. He is supposed to spell C-L-O-W-N but he is a cannibal so he sees FOOD for all people not in his family.

  • SpearedPage

    October 26, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    Rattrap: Thanks, you’re right. I guess I am at Leatherface’s level in spelling!

  • lebutzki

    October 26, 2010 at 4:42 pm

    Actually James that comment about Saw is untrue, and I am talking about the original. At no point in the film do you ever see the Doctor Cut off his foot. Saw did such a great job that people still think that they saw the foot chopped off. I actually had to see that movie a second time to see that.

  • October 26, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Yeah, that movie sucked; and for that matter, so did the second one. You know what sucked more than both of those put together? That’s right, the remake.

  • October 26, 2010 at 6:31 pm

    ¡¡¡¡WTF!!!! with aragorn man viggo fucking mortensen itself in that shity pice of turd hahahaa thats cool , james should do a video about great actors in crapy horror films

  • Trotim

    October 26, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    What’s your problem with Saw, James? Saw 1 was a great movie, but like Matrix 1, you just have to ignore the sequels. Saw 1 is not a torture movie.

    (Although you can watch all Saw movies as long as you skip right to the scenes with John in every time. Seriously, his semi-philosophic background is the only redeeming quality of any of the sequels.)

  • cptsrg

    October 26, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    i cant beleive this is considered obscure I was under the impression that every horror fan has seen this. And that part with the clown i think was a joke about leatherfaces cannibalism but i might be wrong.

  • October 26, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    Does it seem at all like Clowns being food referenced to IT?

    Hey James!! Aside from another fantastic set of reviews from your Monster Madness Special, I just wanted to let you know that I saw you on Encore last night on the show that was titiled, “30 Years of Friday the 13th”. Congrats Man!! I know we all have seen your Friday the 13th on NES review a million times, but to see it during such a celebrated horror event on cable TV was so cool!! You have a lot of followers and more then enough people that tell you how great your work is, so for me to just repeat it doesn’t make much sense so I shall say it in my own words….You are great and your ideas rank up there with some of the real greats, originality, the ability to make us remember and above all the happiness you bring to us all.. Ok so I guess I’m not original, but I’m so happy for you!!

    Actually, it’s a sequel to Part 1, and ignoring Part 2. Notice the brace on his knee? That’s from the chainsaw injury he got when he fell in the first film.

    Yes, that IS Viggo Mortensen!

    And no, Dawn of the Dead and TCM 2 were both released with an R rating. Dunno where that guy is getting his info from, but there are cuts that are MPAA R-rated, and those were released here in the states.

    • cordawgfrito

      February 29, 2012 at 3:53 am

      Actually TCM was not released with an R rating.  The film received an X rating and the filmmakers then decided to release the film as unrated.  So TCM 2 is actually unrated.

    • cordawgfrito

      February 29, 2012 at 3:58 am

      Um actually  you are totally wrong.   Dawn of the Dead originally received an X rating and was actually released with the X rating. TCM 2 recived an X rating when that happened the filmmakers sent the film out unrated.  This is fact.  Tober Hooper admits it.  Look it up on IMDB or Wikipedia.  and you will see.

    May 18, 2012 at 1:44 am

    Hey James. The reason Leatherface keeps spelling food on the speak and say is because he sees the clown as a person.They eat people.The clown is food. It’s a dumb joke that should have been cut from the film.. Keep up the good work.

  • Stefanoragnopazzo

    August 1, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    James, the problem is that 90’s happened and from then censorship has ruined everything, now SOPA PIPA FBI, every year gets worse.

    Only film without censored parts are the ones from a well known director and new guys can never take their time to shine and invent if can hurt censor matters.

    It’s just that everybody wants to be so polite and politcally correct that the whole deal it’s just bullshit.

    For the record, TCM 2 was released without a rating. It would’ve received an X rating from the MPAA, too. It was ultimately released unrated to avoid the X. As far as TCM III is concerned, New Line Cinema wanted to turn TCM into a franchise along the lines of Nightmare on Elm Street, Hellraiser, and so on. Since New Line was attempting to go mainstream with the series, they probably required that the movie receive an R rating. Unrated movies were advertised less than movies with a rating, and had more limited releases; not an ideal situation for a movie studio looking to create a franchise. So, the movie was butchered to receive an R.

  • October 8, 2013 at 7:53 pm
